Summer of 2012

Wow can you believe it? It's 2012. Well my last post was a little more than a year ago because right now I am just starting summer (well I'm a week into it), for me summer officially starts when the pools open. Especially my neighborhood pool because where I live we don't have a beach or lake really close by so my world is the neighborhood pool. Lately I have been having so much fun in the pool and this is just the second day going! I am working on getting tan, even though I would rather not have skin cancer, and just enjoying myself before summer ends. This is the summer I am going into 8th grade! Can you believe it?? I can't, that just seems so old. 7th grade was all about meeting new people. I got another best friend and we could finally compete in sports! I played volleyball (club), basketball (school), cross country (school), and track (school). My best mile time was 6:40, I played outside hitter and libero (beginning), center in basketball, and jumped 4'3 in high jump, and medleys. Overall these sports were all worth it no matter how hard it was to still do big projects and schoolwork its still really fun. Just remember to love your life, and it will get better:)    Just in case your feeling down the Lord will always be there to help you through it.

Hopefully I will see them next year or in the summer or at the pool. Ya neva know! Plus there has been no homework and it's just a blessing. Man, am I glad we got no more tests, no more work, just having fun.

Cuarenta

This week has taken forever to go by! I don't know if it's just me or what but weekends are too short! Ahhhhhhh! I have school tomorrow:( Let's see..... almost 2 weeks left of school! Yes, almost there. Okay so our science teacher is so nice and she was like "Were going to run out of school year and we won't be able to fit in that final, I'm so sorry. Is everyone okay with that?" And everyone but 2 people were okay with it. We were so happy because she had told us that we would have to study really hard because there were 100 questions on the test over everything we'd learned. I mean how horrible is that. But I was so so so thankful! I jumped up and gave her a hug! Oh also in Spanish our teacher was like we aren't going to finish this chapter so there will be no test over it. I we were so happy! Yes I love my teachers. They are the best!

Talk to you later!

Treinte y Nueve

Hey guys!

I just came back from state meet with my best buds Bailey and Juliana. Love them! :D And I did so well. It's amazing how much I've improved over the year! :D But school is coming to an end (almost) YAY! But I am ready for the summer. Oh yah. Also saw Soul Surfer, so inspiring. Gave me a new perspective on life and how much I have that I don't even realize. CAUTION: you will cry. But it's worth it. Happy ending. Good christian story. Can feel her pain, and just shows to us how much good can come out of bad things and that God has a plan.

Love you!

Treinte y Ocho

This is good

'Let me explain the problem science has with religion.'The atheist
professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of
his new students to stand.

'You're a Christian, aren't you, son?'

'Yes sir, 'the student says.

'So you believe in God?'

'Absolutely.'

  Is God good?'

  'Sure! God's good.'

  'Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?'

  'Yes'

  'Are you good or evil?'

  'The Bible says I'm evil.'

The professor grins knowingly. 'Aha! The Bible! He considers for a
moment. 'Here's one for you. Let's say there's a sick person over here
and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you
try?'

'Yes sir, I would.'

'So you're good...!'

'I wouldn't say that.'


'But why not say that? You'd help a sick and maimed person if you
could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn't.'


The student does not answer, so the professor continues. 'He doesn't,
does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he
prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Can you answer
that one?'


The student remains silent. 'No, you can't, can you?' the professor
says. He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the
student time to relax. 'Let's start again, young fella. Is God good?'

'Er..yes,' the student says.

'Is Satan good?

The student doesn't hesitate on this one. 'No.'

'Then where does Satan come from?'

The student falters. 'From God'

'That's right. God made Satan, didn't he? Tell me, son. Is there evil
in this world?'

'Yes, sir..'

'Evil's everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything, correct?

'Yes'

'So who created evil?' The professor continued, 'If God created
everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to
the principle that our works define who we are, then God is evil.'

Again, the student has no answer. 'Is there sickness? Immorality?
Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things, do they exist in this
world?'

The student squirms on his feet. 'Yes.'

'So who created them?'

The student does not answer again, so the professor repeats his
question. 'Who created them?' There is still no answer. Suddenly the
lecturer breaks away to pace in front of the classroom. The class is
mesmerized. 'Tell me,' he continues onto another student. 'Do you
believe in Jesus Christ, son?'

The student's voice betrays him and cracks. 'Yes, professor, I do.'

The old man stops pacing. 'Science says you have five senses you use
to identify and observe the world around you. Have you ever seen
Jesus?'

'No sir. I've never seen Him.'

'Then tell us if you've ever heard your Jesus?'

'No, sir, I have not..'

'Have you ever felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelt your Jesus?
Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ, or God for
that matter?'

'No, sir, I'm afraid I haven't.'

'Yet you still believe in him?'

'Yes'

'According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol,
science says your God doesn't exist... What do you say to that, son?'

'Nothing,' the student replies.. 'I only have my faith.'

'Yes, faith,' the professor repeats. 'And that is the problem science
has with God. There is no evidence, only faith.'

The student stands quietly for a moment, before asking a question of
His own. 'Professor, is there such thing as heat?'

'Yes.

'And is there such a thing as cold?'

'Yes, son, there's cold too.'

'No sir, there isn't.'

The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested. The
room suddenly becomes very quiet. The student begins to explain. 'You
can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat,
unlimited heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don't
have anything called 'cold'. We can hit down to 458 degrees below
zero, which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There
is no such thing as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than
the lowest -458 degrees. Every body or object is susceptible to study
when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or
matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-458 F) is the total
absence of heat. You see, sir, cold is only a word we use to describe
the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat we can measure in
thermal units because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of
heat, sir, just the absence of it'

Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the classroom,
sounding like a hammer.

'What about darkness, professor. Is there such a thing as darkness?'

'Yes,' the professor replies without hesitation.. 'What is night if it
isn't darkness?'

'You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the absence
of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light,
flashing light, but if you have no light constantly you have nothing
and it's called darkness, isn't it? That's the meaning we use to
define the word. In reality, darkness isn't. If it were, you would be
able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?'

The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him. This
will be a good semester. 'So what point are you making, young man?'

'Yes, professor. My point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to
start with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed.'

The professor's face cannot hide his surprise this time. 'Flawed? Can
you explain how?'

'You are working on the premise of duality,' the student explains...
'You argue that there is life and then there's death; a good God and a
bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite,
something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought.'
'It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less
fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is
to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive
thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it.'
'Now tell me, professor.. Do you teach your students that they evolved
from a monkey?'

'If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man,
yes, of course I do.'

'Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?'

The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he realizes
where the argument is going. A very good semester, indeed.

'Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and
cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you
not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a
preacher?'

The class is in uproar. The student remains silent until the commotion
has subsided. 'To continue the point you were making earlier to the
other student, let me give you an example of what I mean..' The
student looks around the room. 'Is there anyone in the class who has
ever seen the professor's brain?' The class breaks out into laughter.
'Is there anyone here who has ever heard the professor's brain, felt
the professor's brain, touched or smelt the professor's brain? No one
appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of
empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have
no brain, with all due respect, sir.' 'So if science says you have no
brain, how can we trust your lectures, sir?'

Now the room is silent. The professor just stares at the student, his
face unreadable. Finally, after what seems an eternity, the old man
answers. 'I Guess you'll have to take them on faith.'

'Now, you accept that there is faith, and, in fact, faith exists with
life,' the student continues. 'Now, sir, is there such a thing as
evil?' Now uncertain, the professor responds, 'Of course, there is. We
see it Everyday. It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity to
man. It is in The multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the
world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil.'

To this the student replied, 'Evil does not exist sir, or at least it
does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is
just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe
the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of
what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart.
It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness
that comes when there is no light.'

The professor sat down.
