the life of Lorien

31 October
I'm boring. :) Um, well, let's see here.... I'm a Christian, the Pastor's yongest daughter, youth group web-caster, and substitute pianist in our church. I have played piano since I was five years of age, and although I am unable to, would like to learn the flute. I am in the church's choir. I am a librarian's aide. I like old-english, even though it drives others crazy... I enjoy reading and writing and am in the process of writing numerous novels and short stories. I enjoy such PC games as "Heroes of Might and Magic," "Rise of Nations," "Dungeon Seige," and "Knights of the Old Republic" (both of them). I'm in highschool, and headed to Pensacola Christian College. I am an avid Green Bay Packers and Brett Favre fan, and rarely miss watching a game. My favourite authors are Tracie Peterson, Kristen Britain and Robin McKinley. If I think of another, I'll update.

In vain we call old notions fudge,
And bend our conscience to our dealing;
The Ten Commandments will not budge,
And stealing with continue stealing."

"God lets us endure pressue we can't handle on our own--
to help us realize we can't live without Him."

To sport would be as tedious as to work." -- Shakespeare, King Henry IV, Part I

"Us? ... Kale, in your mind you've made us the center of what is happening. Wulder is the center." -- Dar, Dragonspell by Donita K. Paul (Chapter 14, "In Wulder's Presence")

"Waiting is a state of mind ... The point isn't whether we are moving or not, but whether we have made our own plans with insufficient information. Sometimes people make plans just to be doing something." -- Dar, Dragonspell by Donita K. Paul (Chapter 14, "In Wulder's Presence")

"God be merciful to me a sinner, and make me to know and believe in Jesus Christ; for I see, that if His righteousness has not been, or I have not faith in that righteousness, I am utterly cast away. Lord, I have heard that Thou art a merciful God, and hast ordained that Thy Son Jesus Christ should be the Saviour of the world; and moreover, that Thou art willing to bestow Him upon such a poor sinner as I am. And I am a sinner indeed. Lord, take therefore this opportunity, and magnify Thy grace in the salvation of my soul, through Thy Son Jesus Christ. Amen."
