The Chronicles of The Best They Ever Had

Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. -Acts 2:43-47

What up ganstas

I'm still waiting on those comments on that last post ;). I know ya'll dont have much free time and all, but i know SOMEBODY is still checking this thing.
Anyways, i had some thoughts. First, i saw a video online where a guy walked around some place asking folks "who is jesus" (people do this a lot....but interestingly this was done at winthrop....sorry you werent in brooke). Anyways, one guy said, "He died, so i can sin every day....but i'm working on that." Thats some pretty deep stuff. A very telling comment. Its something i want to meditate on because theres something deeper there than i see yet. On the one hand, i sorta respond with the thought "thats so true" because i do sin. On the other hand though, i'm thinking that thats not right because the bible clearly says that we are to live in victory over sin. Anyways....something to think about.
Second thought comes from another video i saw of a guy carrying around a cross in a public square to reinact the crucifixion. The thought i had was "what if we [christians] all carried a cross around in public everywhere we go." I sorta had this image of christians walking around in public each carrying their own large, wooden cross. I know that Jesus said we should pick up our cross daily and obviously it was figurative speech, but i think there's significance to thinking about what it would be like if we actually carried one around. When i visualize it like that, i know i'm not doing what he talked about on a daily basis. This is sorta funny because earlier today i realized some pretty big ways that i wasnt living out my walk daily (i began to question whether some people would know i'm a christian if i hadnt pretty much told them by mentioning something about my campus ministry or something in conversation....and it made me realize that i need to pray to be changed in how i act and love people in public). Anyways....some other thoughts i need to meditate on.
Call me and tell me about camp. And post comments on my posts. And post about whats going on down there sometime too.

So, I've been wanting to say this for a long time, but your posts are always serious and I feel bad for interrupting a good topic, but the contraction for "you all" is spelled "y'all" not "ya'll". I promise. You're taking out the "ou" from "you", and you're not taking any letters out of "all." Therefore it is a major violation of grammatical law on contractions. Just like the contraction for "do not" is spelled "don't" because you are taking a letter out of "not" and not "do", you can't mispell "y'all" by misplacing the apostrophe. So, that's my soap box. This is why I'm always "the grammar person" in group projects. Anyways, I'm done.
