What Type of Blog Do I Have?

According to typalyzer

I am an ISTP - The Mechanics

The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.

The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.

Sounds about right...

Now to Him Who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present you unblemished (blameless and faultless) before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation with unspeakable, ecstatic delight.

But the Lord is faithful and will give you strength and will protect you from the Evil One.

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say.

Praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is so good, and by raising Jesus from death, he has given us new life and a hope that lives on. God has something stored up for you in heaven, where it will never decay or be ruined or disappear. You have faith in God, whose power will protect you until the last day. Then he will save you, just as he has always planned to do.

Taken from Jude, 2 Thessalonians 2 and 3, and 1 Peter 1

Falls Mill

The Mrs. and I went to Falls Mill today. The leaves weren't as pretty as I hoped they would be. As a side note, the owner (John Lovett) was my "Materials and Manufacturing Processes" instructor in college. Here are a few pictures from the trip.

The Assurance of Grace

What the law demands from us, grace promises and performs for us. The law deals with what we should do, whether we can do it or not. The law, motivating us out of fear and love, stirs us up to do our best. But it gives no real strength and thus only leads to failure and condemnation. Grace points to what we cannot do and offers to do it for us and in us.

The law comes with commands on stone or in a book. Grace comes in a living, gracious Person who gives His presence and His power.

The law promises life if we obey. Grace gives life, even the Holy Spirit, with the assurance that we can obey.

It has been over 30 years since Billy Joel released "The Stranger" album. It has always been in my top 10 list of favorite albums. It is one of the few albums I have listened to where I like each song on the album. One of my favorite songs on the album, if you haven't already guessed, is "Vienna." I am not sure if there is a Christian lesson in there, but there is a lesson there about living. I found this on YouTube...the quality of the graphics isn't that great, but Enjoy!
