Because it's my blog and I can do what I want

The following was a comment thread on Impatient Chicken's post and I wanted to ask Ben what he meant and then maybe entice some conversation.


got here late but I offer prayers post-test (hey God isn't bound by time so you never know)


Katie-Wow... that comment was crazy-deep.That's what I like about you... you ALWAYS make me think.

I second Ben's motion. Why do you think I always say to you, "Katie, you're so smart!" lol ;)

What a neat, mind blowing, thought about God's power. He could go back and make the test better even though she already took it.

On a side note: our forcast said light flurries and it's snowing like a banshee out there.

ps I just wanted to use the word "banshee" in a sentence. :)

OR Luke... God could have given her more divine assistance in anticipation of Katie's extra prayer to be given post-test. Maybe that's what you were already saying and I'm just rephrasing your comment, in which case I'm sorry and I'll stop talking. lol Katie: LOVE that your mind works like this!

Ben meant that your comment was deep. About God not being bound by time.

Boys usually say exactly what they mean, as opposed to girls who often say SOME of what they mean, but then leave some of it hidden.

I made that comment because I am seriously in awe (and I completely mean this as a compliment) of how your mind is thinking on so many different levels. I have never thought about God not being bound by time. I mean, I know that a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day to him... but I never thought that he could KNOW that you would be faithful enough to pray for JLR's test after it happened and because of that helped her through the test EVEN THOUGH you hadn't even prayed for her yet.

And what's better, I know my God is powerful enough to do this. I like how luke summed it up...

Mind blowing... almost hard to wrap your mind around it... YET you, oh favorite blogger friend of mine, nonchalantly add things like this into your conversation and challenge me all the time.

Katie, God has really blessed me by sending you as a friend. Seriously. Some day, Sydney and I must come and visit.

Ben - Wanna know something else amazing about our God? He knew that the comment you just wrote would be such an encouragement to me and brighten my day by leaps and bounds. Thank you friend.

And yes, one day, you and Syd must come to Texas, and one day I will venture up to Minnesota (with a few friends in tow).

Blogger Stephanie said...

I'd like to see him TRY to stay away. How funny.

12/16/2005 3:10 PM  
Blogger Katie said...

Blogger Katie said...

keep on talking people, I'm pretty sure I won't be seeing Steve around here for six days (BEN - he doesn't need any encouragment)

Uh oh if Steve is boycotting that means i have to stay true to fellow Oregonians (there is that word again) and i have to boycott for six days also

12/16/2005 3:44 PM  
Blogger Stephanie said...

Oh Logan, don't be silly! You need to stick around here and hang out with us, so you can tell him about all the fun we're having without him!

Katie: for some reason, I'm beginning to think you're right lol
