what art movement am I?

Standard

 

persistence. everyday.
I take some comfort in the fact that virtually all the masters of spirituality recount a dark night of the soul. Sometimes it passes quickly and sometimes it persists for months, even years. I have yet to find a single witness, though, who does not tell of going through a dry period.

If I suffer a time of spiritual aridity, of darkness and blankness, should I stop praying until new life enters my prayer? Every one of the spiritual masters insists, No. If I stop praying, how will I know when prayer does become alive again? And, as many Christians have discovered, the habit of not praying is far more difficult to break than the habit of praying. >>Discuss This

You Are Romanticism
You are likely to see the world as it should be, not as it is.
You prefer to celebrate the great things people do… not the horrors they’re capable of.
For you, there is nothing more inspiring than a great hero.
You believe that great art reflects the artist’s imagination and true ideals.

Standard

You Are A Realistic Romantic
It’s easy for you to get swept away by romance…
But you’ve done a pretty good job keeping perspective.
You’re still taken in by love poems and sunsets
You just don’t fall for every dreamy pick up line!

economic systems

Standard

You Are 16% Capitalist, 84% Socialist
You see a lot of injustice in the world, and you’d like to see it fixed.
As far as you’re concerned, all the wrong people have the power.
You’re strongly in favor of the redistribution of wealth – and more protection for the average person.

 

i don’t agree with the second two sentances but that is what i got.  i do agree to the first however.

reliable. everyday.
A promise is only as good as the person who makes it. Sometimes young children make promises they cannot keep, like the one about eating all their vegetables if only you will please give them a candy bar right now. Lovers promise to stay together in sickness and in health until death parts them. Yet sometimes they stray. Salespeople promise the moon just to close a deal. But when it comes to making a promise and keeping it, God is not like any of his flawed creatures. He is absolutely reliable, completely trustworthy, entirely able to follow through on his word. >>Discuss This

Life has been pretty busy lately but things have slowed down a little becuase i have had less work to do.  God is amazing.  Chemistry is not.  It is interesting however- but easy- at least for now.  i hope it can be therputic for me.  and i hope i can get to know some of the younger classmen and classwoman through it.  and this has already begun. 
peace like a river. 
work tonight.  syatp on wensday.  to all brothers in sisters no matter what school you attend- be there. 
peace to you all, and God bless.

p.s.
You Are As Cool As They Come
Rational and relaxed, no one could accuse you of being dramatic.
You roll with the punches, and nothing ever gets you too worked up.
You are able to maintain perspective and see the big picture.

And even if you’re emotional inside, you don’t let it show.
You’re great at keeping it together, and you’re rewarded for that.
People see you as an ideal friend, employee, and partner.
i am emotional at times and let those know it who i know i should.  if that makes sense.  that sounds bad i am emotional all the time- hey i am human- but i am not always extremely dramatic.  but i sometimes too.  i am more closer to the middle then this describes me but anyways. 

dazzled.

Standard

dazzled. everyday.
Throughout Scripture, divine appearances are often marked by light. The psalmist describes a luminous God, wrapped in light as in a garment. Later, the New Testament describes Jesus’ dazzling transfiguration on the mountaintop. The scene was so brilliant that the three disciples who were with him were literally awestruck, falling to the ground. Matthew’s gospel says of Jesus, “His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light” (Matthew 17:2).

Whatever darkness still surrounds or resides in us, we need to remember that there is not a shred of darkness in our God.

how angry are you?

Standard

 

so, school has come like a flood overflowing my schedual and stressing my systems, but yet the peace and joy of God which passes all human knowledge and understanding has been with me.  see those calm watters down there, certaintly that has been today.  my life is like that calm, serne glimpse of nature as I have found shelter in the wings of God.  He is so good, may His name be praised forever. 

my family is doing good.  steve- my step dad for those who don’t know- has come back from working florida and this has brought some normalcy back to the homefront.  for those who pray please pray for a letter i want to send to my dad that is very personal and very painful at the same time.  pray that it would be recieve in the the intention i desired and was move by the Spririt and pray that it would bring healing in our relationship. 

i have been so busy i felt like i have been having very little time for friends but my desire does not match that reality.  all the while i have been having great times at school and work with friends and co-workers.  its so exciting to be back at rennisance and west it makes going to school so much more rich and fufilling from a learning and social perspective.  this is not to say that kimberly is not a good place to learn or that there are no interesting people there its just his is better for me and really don’t have a good way to articulate that or am to apathetic to do that right now.  i love working at the pig, the enviroment is often postive and the people are great. 

God is amazing. 

tomorrow a poetter is coming to chruch to do a potery demonstration which should be pretty interesting.  as for know it is time to listen to the Lord of love. 

to all, peace and God bless,

Spencer

calm. everyday.
When the outlook is not good, we should not worry. We need a change of perspective to realize that God sees tomorrow more clearly than we see yesterday. The future is completely in his hands! Remember, worry will only tie us in knots. Prayer is the only way to cut short our worrying—to cut those knots of anxiety and care and grant us God’s peace instead (Philippians 4:7–8).

You Are 40% Angry
You’re occasionally angry, but it’s really not an issue.
While you may give in to your temper once and a while, you’re pretty mellow.
And as long as your anger doesn’t effect your relationships, then it’s probably in check.
You know that anger is a bad habit – and you don’t engage in it often.
