1 Blessed is the man

    who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.


2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
    and on his law he meditates day and night.


3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.


4 Not so the wicked!
    They are like chaff that the wind blows away.


5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.


6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked will perish.
Psalm 1

D started a new thing with all church activities this year... open with a Psalm and close with a Psalm. I've really enjoyed it. I've heard this Psalm now multiple times... and I get more out of it everytime. I especially love verses 2-3... first because it's convicting- my roots are thirsting for God's word and I haven't been watering them. Second because of the promise in there. It makes me think of Jeremiah 17:5-8:
    This is what the Lord says: "Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord. He will be like a bush in the wastelands; he will not see prosperity when it comes. He will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives. But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not hear when heat comes; its leave are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."

So, it's been almost a week and I'm doing ok. The facebook withdrawls, haven't been too bad. It did feel like I pulled a plug... and all sorts of dirt and grime was sucked down the drain and I no longer have it hanging on. I'm FREE! So I've decided no to go back anytime soon. This new found freedom has motivated me to clean up and out other things as well. Like... my binders from college still full of notes that I have NOT used or glanced it since my last "I should really get rid of this" session. And I got rid of my yahoo email... simplifying. So I'm just down to one. It's helps me not spend so much time online checking accounts.

The Law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. Psalm 19:7

So I deactivated my facebook account today... not a total delete from what I understand. It feels good. I spent way too much time on there and it became more of a snooping.... how to I describe it. I tend to look too much and not interact... and then it takes away from time I could actually spend interacting with real live people, in person. It's so easy to want to be a "friend" with someone just so you can see what they are doing and not really have to interact with them. I do have to say, Facebook is impressive and quite good at reconnecting you with people. I need this hiatus to think it over. Along with re-evaluating my decision to join Facebook, I am re-evaluating why I have a blog in the first place, what it's purpose is, why I put the things I do up here. Is it really benefitting anyone besides my mom. ;) Sure it helps keep others in touch with me, but is it keeping me in touch with them? Whatever happened to good ol' letter writing? Oh yeah, it costs nearly 50cents to send a letter these days... while email is free... and blogging is even way easier. You don't have to send it out to anyone, you just wait for them to find you and read it. Maybe I should reinstall my link to my message board. I really do like writing letters, but have seemed to lost the art since I got addicted to the World Wide Web. Maybe it's time to go back... start writing again. Hmmmm... thoughts... we'll see what happens.

The Law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. Psalm 19:7

Stone Lakes in Louisville, Kentucky, is a pleasant, suburban subdivision.

Stone Lakes is the kind of place where a husband and wife can put down roots and raise a family. At least, Stone Lakes ought to be that kind of place. The problem is, Stone Lakes is not especially safe. Although Stone Lakes has a posted speed limit of 25 mph, some drivers rip down the residential streets at 55.

That's the kind of speeding that can earn a person a nasty ticket. It is also the kind of speeding that doesn't allow motorists to safely react to a child who darts out from between cars.

Officials have said the city will be more than glad to put some speed bumps in the street if 70 percent of the residents think that ought to be done, and if those same residents are willing to cough up half the money to finance the job.

Speed bumps may, or may not, happen.

Until they do, Landon Wilburn is becoming a vigilante.
