Biologie, pourquoi ne pas vous voir?

Biology, why can't you see??
So, why am I talking about Biology?? (btw the title is in French) Well, for my degree I have to take some Natural Science classes. This semester I am taking two, and one of them happens to be Biology. I am reading the text book right now and I am just amazed (not necessarily in a good way). This text book is biased towards evolution ( big surprise there). Anyway, I was reading along and it is going into how things are a bajillion and one years old, but then it said "close examination of a flower reveals that the parts are far from randomly organized." How does that work??? If everything just exploded then how can they say that something is "far from randomly organized." (In case you haven't already noticed I am on a soap box right now). Then they have the.. audacity to say that DNA are "blueprints" for organisms. If there are blueprints then someone made them right? The last set of blueprints I looked at didn't just evolve in front of me. It took an *intelligent being* to create it. So evolution scientists are saying that everything exploded, yet it all seems to have a plan and a purpose? It astounds me how people think. Evolution doesn't even make sense! There are as many ways of looking at evolution as there are years in evolution, but here is something interesting I have thought about. So, suppose everything did just *randomly* explode into earth. Then humans (or whatever we were then) started coming out of the primeval ooze. These creatures would have to evolve at approximately the same rate and they would have to be sexually compatible in order to reproduce and further evolve! I personally think that believing evolution is harder than believing that God made the world. Even the scientists who are against creationism are saying that things appear as though they didn't just "randomly" come into being. The book of Romans comes to mind right now. If you don't know what it says, then go and read it! :)

My fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, please be praying for me as I may have to choose my battles in these science classes (specifically biology). That I may honor God through the choices that I make and that I would stand strong and have the wisdom to respond about, and defend my faith. Thank you all! :)

A box of memories

Everyone has memories
Some are happy,
Some are sad.
Some we never wish to remember.
There are those we wish we could live over and over again.
Yet, there are some
that belong in a box.
There they can  be put aside.
Perhaps brought out later and gone over,
but in that box they are out of sight,
out of mind,
but though we may be able to put memorabilia in a box
memories can never be contained.
They can be put under lock
under key,
but never contained.
They creep out when you least expect them.
That box of memories.
Things you cannot part with,
yet can't bear to look at.
Memories belong in boxes.
These boxes have locks,
they have keys.
These boxes are the only things that can truly hold memories.
Heart and mind
the only real memory keepers of any kind.

Another random attempt at writing that popped into my head during my science class :)

A random attepmt at writing....

She faked a smile and laughed
Sure that no one around her could guess 
how she was really doing behind that smile.
She had just lost something very precious.
This thing she did not own,
yet she none the less possessed. 
At one time she knew it was hers 
She didn't have to feign a smile.
But like a flower 
her real smile soon faded
for that thing which she had once possessed had faded out of her life.
The fading was slow, but it was also sure.
How fast it did fade.
She didn't expect it
Didn't want it to go away
Yet she continued to feign her smile as it slipped even farther away
taking part of her with it.
All of a sudden she realized it really was gone,
still there,
but no longer possessed by her.
She did not know who possessed it 
if anyone,
but it was gone
and she continued to smile on the outside
while on the inside she felt confused and lost.
Like a flower without a vase.

Changing the World

Don't we all wish at one time or another that we could change the world??? I know that I do! Just to be able to change my own world would be huge!!! There are so many things that I would like to change... but alas I am only a mere human and I cannot change everything. When I become frustrated with not being able to change things the way I wish, I must remember that God is in control and He knows what He is doing. As I am writing this I am reminded of the first part of the serenity prayer: God grant me the Serenity/ to accept the things I cannot change/courage to change the things I can/and wisdom to know the difference.... This is such an amazing prayer!!! I do need serenity to accept that I cannot change everything. I need courage to change some things, actually, many things :) and wisdom to know what I should and shouldn't try to change would be amazing! The God I serve is an awesome God. I love Him, but to often I try to take His place by ruling my world, when it is really His world. So, I am going to change the world! Just by living I am changing some part of someones world. Hopefully the changes I make are for good. I know that I am not perfect, in fact I am very far from it, but I do hope that in all that I do I glorify Christ! 

(P.S. School is over for this semester!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Well, I finished this semester of school!!! :) YAY!!! Unfortunately summer school starts in 2 weeks :P
My life has been CRAZY as of late. So much stuff going on. I have been put to tests spiritually, emotionally, and physically and they  haven't been easy. I cannot complain for God has given me sooo much! He has blessed me abundantly. Too often I let things get to me. They start taking away my joy and robbing me of the happiness that God has for me. I am not perfect and those around me are not perfect. I lose my joy in Christ and just in life when my world is turned upside down. People can be deceptive, malicious, depressed...etc... and they can let you down. The choices of the ones you love can often effect you in ways that no one would imagine.... They can hurt you and put you down, but they are not usually all bad. They can love you, teach you, guide you....  I need to strive to not let the world effect me in such ways. I need to keep my eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of my faith. He loves me so much more than I can even comprehend and He has plans for me.

Happy Mothers Day to everyone!!! :)
