Ads and a new look!

So I checked my blog from a different computer and noticed there are little ads on all my posts! I had never seen them before. My computer has a program that blocks all ads on all sites, so I never thought about them. So far I haven’t seen any that are offensive or questionable. I just wanted to let everyone know that if ever there was an ad such as that, I have no say in the matter. I cannot take it off and I cannot choose what is advertised. Mainly because I have no money wherewith to buy  my own domain and therefore must have ads pay for it. :3 Oh, and I changed the looks and title of my page. I hope you like it. I also hadn’t noticed what it looks like on the bottom of the pages, just the sparkly at the top. So, sorry ’bout that too. Have a marvelous morning/afternoon/evening/whenever-you-may-read-this!

Tuesday Tunes- Far Over the Misty Mountains x2!

Here is a lovely arrangement of a short tune called “Over the Misty Mountains” Thorin sings in The Hobbit:

And here is the recording from the movie (sung by Richard Armitage) on a loop for twelve(!) minutes:

Here are the actual words to the song as it was written in Tolkien’s book:

Far over the misty mountains cold

To dungeons deep and caverns old

We must away ere break of day

To seek the pale enchanted gold.

 ~

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,

While hammers fell like ringing bells

In places deep, where dark things sleep,

In hollow halls beneath the fells.

For ancient king and elvish lord

There many a gleaming golden hoard

They shaped and wrought, and light they caught

To hide in gems on hilt of sword.

~

On silver necklaces they strung

The flowering stars, on crowns they hung

The dragon-fire, in twisted wire

They meshed the light of moon and stars.

~

Far over the misty mountains cold

To dungeons deep and caverns cold

We must away, ere break of day,

To claim our long-forgotten gold.

~

Goblets they carved there for themselves

And harps of gold; where no man delves

There lay they long, and many a song

Was sung unheard by men or elves.

~

The pines were roaring on the height,

The winds were moaning in the night.

The fire was red, it flaming spread;

The trees like torches blazed with light.

~

The bells were ringing in the dale

And men looked up with faces pale;

The dragon’s ire more fierce than fire

Laid low their towers and houses frail.

~

The mountain smoked beneath the moon;

The dwarves, they heard the tramp of doom.

They fled their hall to dying fall

Beneath his feet, beneath the moon.

~

Far over the misty mountains grim

To dungeons deep and caverns dim

We must away, ere break of day,

To win our harps and gold from him!

What is a Life Verse?

This is a question I often used to ask myself. What is a “life verse”?

People were always asking me what my life verse was and I felt horrible for not immediately quoting some Scripture reference back to them. Two or three years ago I needed to choose one for some reason or another so I decided to find a verse that described how I felt about my life. I ended up choosing Romans 8:26. “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” Well about a month later (when the verse was shown to a bunch of people), I felt dumb because the importance of that verse to me had changed since I first chose it.

Since then, I have had four or five “life verses” that changed in meaning for me. I had chosen them at a time when I was going through a trial and they had given me comfort, but when that trial was over, it just wasn’t the same. Having a life verse isn’t actually a Biblical thing. It’s something we as Christian made up ourselves. I had been worried I wasn’t truly saved just because I didn’t know my life verse. What an awful way to live! This year, I was put in a similar situation and had to give my life verse. I decided to think and pray about my decision and here is what I came up with:

Ecclesiastes 12:13 says, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” So here I saw what my life should be about. Fearing (honoring) God and obeying Him. Next I looked to Colossians 3:17 “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” and 1 Corinthians 10:31 “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.” So everything we do is to ultimately glorify and honor God. Finally, I took my talent of music and researched it. Psalm 100 says “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.” And then Colossians 3 again, but verse 16. “ Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”

As I looked up and researched these verses, I realized all my other “life verses” were just verses for that part of my journey. I probably will end up claiming them again for future battles, but when it comes to describing my purpose here and just basically summing up my whole life, Ecclesiastes 12:13, Psalm 100, 1 Corinthians 10:31, and (especially) Colossians 3:16-17 do pretty well!

I hope this post has been of some help to you! What is your life verse? I’d love to hear about it and how you came to it as well as your opinion of this post!
