(Second Life snapshot)

I found this little cottage,
right outside of Moon Village,
in the virtual world of Second Life.

"I had rather be shut up
in a very modest cottage with my books,
my family and a few old friends,
dining on simple bacon,
and letting the world roll on as it liked,
than to occupy the most splendid post,
which any human power can give."

- Thomas Jefferson

keep you longer than you want to stay,
and cost you more than you want to pay."

Cyber Church...

(Second Life snapshot)

This last Sunday, after attending my
in real life church, I attended
a cyber church on Second Life.
This is on every Sunday at 2:00 PM EST.

Both messages were very well done.

"Revivals begin with God's own people;
the Holy Spirit touches their heart anew,
and gives them new fervor and compassion,
and zeal, new light and life,
and when He has thus come to you,
He next goes forth to the valley of dry bones...
Oh, what responsibility this lays on the Church of God!
If you grieve Him away from yourselves,
or hinder His visit,
then the poor perishing world suffers sorely!"

- Andrew Bonar

The decisions we make today
determine the story we tell tomorrow.

"Decisions become easier
when your will to please God
outweighs your will
to please the world
[and your earthly self]."

fall equinox...

Fall Equinox
(Second Life snapshot)

"Just after the death of the flowers,
And before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season,
When nature is all aglow—
Aglow with a mystical spendour
That rivals the brightness of spring,
Aglow with a beauty more tender
Than aught which fair summer could bring...."

- Emeline B. Smith
"Indian Summer"

tranquility within ourselves,
it is useless to seek it elsewhere."

"To love means loving the unlovable.
To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable.
Faith means believing the unbelievable.
Hope means hoping
when everything seems hopeless."
