I praise you...

because i am fearfully and wonderfully made.... and also because you've created me with the inability to know EVERYTHING. Does anyone else ever just want to praise God for not giving us all the answers?? I find it comforting to know that i don't have to be smart enough to make my own decisions.... that i can just hand my life over to God and say "Let YOUR will be done in my life God." Today in Philosophy we talked about the ability to "self-govern" and how its very dangerous, blah blah blah... but one of the points my teacher made was that in order for us to self-govern we have to be educated. I think i just breathed a huge sigh of relief when i thought of how i don't have to be incredibly smart to live and exist and to love God and be his daughter. All i have to have is faith in him. Faith in what is not seen or felt physically. Praise God right?! We talked about the three major fields of philosophy: Metaphysics (What is real?), Epistemology (What do i know?), and Axiology (What do i do?). We talked about a lot of big questions right from the start!! and this is only our second class!! I can't imagine how it will be towards the end of the semester. I was a little scared of taking this class at first because i was afraid that the teacher would try and convince me that there was no God and junk like that but my teacher is really respectful of our opinions and lets us speak our mind. I actually feel like i'm learning something haha Well... its time for bed... i've got more of the school thing going on tomorrow.... bleh.


School and such...

Okay, so far my first week back to school has been rather pleasant. I complain a lot but i really am enjoying my classes. It's just that its so hard for me to just start back in school and be busy CONSTANTLY! But so far its been okay. I'm in a lot of hours this semester but i'm looking forward to finishing this year *crosses fingers* My classes kind of all mesh together with the topics that we cover with the exception of Math and Bio. Basically in my English class i am learning about the elements of argument and what makes a good argument and how to provide good evidence and so on. My teacher is really nice, he gets off track sometimes but i don't mind at all :) In my Philosophy class we are talking about what we believe and why we believe it and how to argue it and how to prove or disprove a certain philosophy with evidence and how to make that decision. Last but not least in my Psychology class we are talking about things that have to do with social psychology and human social behavior. It's awesome! Because we talk about the different things that influence our decisions and our perceptions on things. They all flow together :) I'm pretty excited about it. My math class isn't too bad and in Biology we get to use microscopes... its awesome! I got to see a cell from the saliva i scraped off from the inside of my cheek. It was quite fun. I have some goofy lab partners but it makes things fun. Hopefully as the semester progresses it keeps getting better and doesn't in anyway get worse (knock on wood) ;)

I hate to see you cry
Lying there in that position
There's things you need to hear
so turn off your tears
and listen

Pain throws your heart to the ground
love turns the whole thing around
no it wont all go the way
it should
but I know the heart of life is good

You know it's nothin' new
bad news never had good timing
then the circle of your friends
will defend the silver lining

Pain throws your heart to the ground
love turns the whole thing around
no it won't all go the way
it should
But I know the heart of life is good

Pain throws your heart to the ground
love turns the whole thing around
fear is a friend who is
but I know the heart of life is good
I know it's good, I know it's good
oh i know it's good
