Finding Whose We Are: Trusting His Wisdom

Finding Whose We Are: Trusting His Wisdom

text image finding whose we are

I like formulas.  Daily, I manipulate and interpret data to determine the effectiveness of the university.  It’s consistent.  The sum divided by the count equals the average.  Multiply a number by .01 to find the percentage. Formulas never change; they give me what I want.

But there is no formula for life, at least, I haven’t found one.  For me, life is a step-by-step experiment.  Sometimes, All the time, I would like some wisdom in this trial and error attempt.  Where can I find wisdom?

1. If you are a fan of Lemony Snicket, this website will impress you.  The author, Lynley Jones, perfectly mimic’s Snicket’s voice and provides a fun, edible commentary to the books.

And she has recipes for oatmeal.

Unlike most single ladies, I don’t hate Valentines Day.  But I do not celebrate Valentine’s day.  I plan to spend February 14 like any other day.  I will go to work, complete assignments for grad school, and constantly make this face as I walk around campus:

But I know that some of you have a less passive response to red heart balloons.

1. Homemade chocolate and peanut butter no-bake cookies

I had never added chocolate to my peanut butter no-bake cookies, but I made two batches of these cookies this week (one batch for a game night, and one batch for Bible study).  Y’all. These. Are. So. Good.

January 27 – February 2

1. On Tuesday, Pine Cove posted this blog that I wrote over the summer, and I was reminded (once again) how thankful I am for the three summers that I worked at Pine Cove.   I don’t get any compensation for saying this, but if you live near a Camp in the City church, you need to send your kids to camp!

I have photographic evidence that every camper will have fun in a Christ-centered, safe environment:

 

2.  My second joy of the week is pretty nerdy.  For grad school, I have to write a weekly four-page paper.  This week, I am researching the prompt, “Discuss Bandura’s progression from Behaviorism to Social Cognitive Theory.”  Long story short, God directed me to an article that is basically an autobiography of Bandura’s progression from Behaviorism to Social Cognitive Theory.  It was so helpful!

3. A few weeks ago, I was told that a college friend was starting a Friday night Bible study.  We had our first meeting last night, and it was joyous.  We laughed and joked around, but we also dug into God’s Word.  Here is a snippet from our study:
