Notable November Notes: 28

Unfortunately, this will be the last Notable November Note. I leave for the Moshi Sports Tournament at 4 a.m. tomorrow morning, and won’t have my laptop with me, and for some reason the WordPress app on my phone is completely useless and won’t let me edit or add anything on the site. Lame. But I’m…

Notable November Notes: 28

School is out for Thanksgiving break — at least that’s what I’m calling it. This is the first year HOPAC has had Thanksgiving off. Obviously, Thanksgiving is not an international holiday, but it is certainly nice to have a break. Not that I’ll be taking much of a break. Tomorrow, I’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving with…

  Once again, the view on my ride to work was gorgeous. This time, I took the time to drive up to a high point a bit further up the road to be able to get a shot with my iPhone. Thunderstorms are beautiful, amazing works of creation. Though I had to laugh today after…

  I could resist putting another puppy photo up for today. Really, I wished I would have gotten a shot of the bay this morning. It was raining just before I left for school and dark clouds covered the ocean, with bright gold light outlining the clouds and the sun pouring around the edges of…

  Meet Amini (pronounced ah-mee-nee). I feel like I just acquired a child. But hopefully, I also acquired a large, strong guard dog that lives up to her breed’s reputation. African Ridgebacks were originally bred to hunt lions, and are capable of running alongside galloping horses for over 30 kilometers. This particular puppy is seven…

  I know I’ve said this before, but I love living next to the beach. For less than $3.00, I can spend the entire day at a beach resort, enjoying the sun, sand, and surf. This tends to be my regular Saturday destination. Its close. Its safe. Its beautiful. What else can I ask for?…

Notable November Notes: 22

Its Friday. Finally. What a week. I’m thankful for light. For light at the end of the tunnel. For the colors of light as the sun fades. For lights in my house and power tonight. For the way the sun sparkles when I blink the tears from my eyes. For the Light of the world.

Today, one of the blog posts I chose to read included this: Hebrews 11:1. “To live by faith and not by sight.” To believe in the sun even when it is not shining. For the climate of the skies will surely change again. And HIS promises will still be true. Even in the confusion of competing seasons…

Notable November Notes: 20

This could have been an ode to my brother and best friend. The guy who practically carried me up Pike’s Peak, who accompanied me on a cross-country road trip, and who lost his front teeth at my hand. He is 23 now. This could have been a miracle story of how God preserved me when…

I just have to say, I love Apple products. After using the Dell laptop provided by HOPAC, having my own MacBook Pro at school, even just for one day, makes my life so much easier. But that’s not why I posted this screenshot. See that RSS Reader? Its full of (unread) posts from various blogs…

I apologize for the quality of the photo today. Even before it got dark tonight, I was anticipating the full moon, and wanted to get a picture. But the iPhone just doesn’t do it justice. The night sky was absolutely gorgeous tonight! And I have so much to be grateful for. Safety (yes, again), the…
