I keep seeing this everywhere so I thought I would share. Maybe it means something in my life and yours right now:

Proverbs 9:10 - The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the
Holy One is understanding.

This comes from

The stock market may go up and down, the economy may go boom or bust, but as writer Christopher Morley once said, "Words are a commodity in which there is never any slump."

Words are the only things that last forever; they are more durable than the eternal hills. -William Hazlitt, essayist (1778-1830)

I am amazed how the brain works. I dream every night, and I have a couple of vivid dreams every night that I can remember. But what amazes me is that the tiniest part of my day can be the focus of my dream that night. A person can say one sentence to me about something that isn't even really important, and I could end up having a dream about it that night. It could be one sentence that was said to me that I even had forgotten. And it won't be until the morning when I am reflecting on my dreams that I actually remember what was said to me that started the dream.

I can remember dreams I had when I was really young. Particularly one where I was at my mammaw's house and there was an outbreak of werewolves in my town. I remember seeing a sign on the road she lived on that said, "Warning: Werewolves on the Loose."

Sometimes I remember things from when I was young that no one else remembers and they tell me it was a dream. For example, there is this building in my town that is abandoned and for sale, and has been for years. However, I distinctly remember my mom taking me into that building, she was holding my hand, and I remember my dad was there playing in a band towards the back. No one remembers this but me, so it must have been a dream.

Last night I had a very strange dream. I remember running from someone or something, and my boyfriend and I had to jump in and swim in a very large river to reach the other side. When I jumped in it was very cold water, and we swam a ways until there was this huge wooden thing underneath us. Where it poked out of the river it created islands in the frigid waters. The more I saw it, the more I realized it was a huge sunken ship, rising to the top of the river. It was wooden and so large it took up most of the river. I remember marveling at its colossal size. I remember the wood was dark brown as the water lapped over its side.
We finally got out of the river and began to investigate why the ship was there.

I told you before, the brain amazes me with the things it comes up with.

My Favorite Tree

This tree was actually first featured in my blog entitled "Autumn Again." It is the same tree that I took a picture of in November 2008, and here it is in November 2009. It is my favorite tree at Lee. It reminds me that although seasons change and different students will pass it by each year, it will still remains. The tree's beauty shines through when its trunk is dark like the damp earth and its leaves are crimson and gold.
It reminds me that some things remain stationary in life, even when all else around endures change.
