bitch

Fuck that

I saw the following times on the clock last night/this morning (timespans of less than 45 minutes or so indicate no sleep between them):

10:55 (when I went to bed), 11:15, 11:55, 12:06, 12:52, 1:14, 1:46, 2:12, 2:26 (when my stupid roommate finally went to bed), 4:00, 4:30, 6:00, 7:05, and currently 7:30 which means even though I don't have devos until 8:15 I will not be getting any more sleep even if I lie quietly in bed. So much for being good and trying to go to bed early.

Trust You More
~Peder Eide

I stand on solid ground
My balance is sound
I fall hardly ever
To walk is another thing
It's too frightening
So I stay where I am

I won't go back
But I can't move on
For fear is clouding my mind
Jesus shine Your light
Lord hold my hand
And help me to trust You more

A fledgling in the nest
I know I am blessed
So safe in Your keeping
To fly is another thing
It's too frightening
So I stay where I am

I can't grow here
I can't fly out
For fear is clouding my mind
Jesus shine Your light
Lord hold my hand
And help me to trust You more

Oh perfect love that casts out fear
Oh perfect love that casts out fear
Cme near and renew my mind
Jesus shine your light
Lord hold my hand
Help me to love You more

Note from Peder: There are numerous examples of Jesus instigating the healing of someone by the touch of His hand. A child finds guidance, confidence, and comfort in the hand of mom or dad. Likewise, when Jesus takes our hand, it is real and powerful.

    "What A Ride" by Peder Eide

The few times I enjoy homework reading...

from "Abortion and the Sexual Agenda" by Sidney Callahan, on why abortion is damaging to feminism

"...After all, debates similar to those about the fetus were once conducted about feminine personhood. Just as women, or blacks, were considered too different, too underdeveloped, too "biological," to have souls or to possess legal rights, so the fetus is now seen as "merely" biological life, subsidiary to a person. A woman was once viewed as incorporated into the "one flesh" of her husband's person; she too was a form of bodily property. In all patriarchal unjust systems, lesser orders of human life are granted rights only when wanted, chosen, or invested with value by the powerful....
...Society in general, and men in particular, have to provide women more support in rearing the next generation, or our devastating feminization of poverty will continue. But if a woman claims the right to decide by herself whether the fetus becomes a child or not, what does this do to paternal and communal responsiblity? Why should men share responsibility for child support or childrearing if they cannot share in what is asserted to be the woman's sole decision? Furthermore, if explicit intentions and consciously accepted contracts are necessary for moral obligations, why should men be held responsible for what they do not voluntarily choose to happen? By pro-choice reasoning, a man who does not want to have a child, or whose contraceptive fails, can be exempted from the responsibilites of fatherhood and child support....
...For that matter, why should the state provide a system of day-care or child support, or require workplaces to accommodate women's maternity and the needs of childbearing? Permissive abortion, granted in the name of woman's privacy and reproductive freedom, ratifies the view that pregnancies and children are a woman's private individual responsibility...."

It's a great article, and I might just keep the whole book simply for it. So anyway, I was reading it and I decided I wanted to make a few anti-abortion icons:





That's all.
