Nanonono. 1035 words. I should have double that by now.
Sleep is more important.
People are more important still.

Interesting how the word rest is in the word restore.
I’ve never noticed that before.

Hebrews 4

A Sabbath-Rest for the People of God

1Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. 2For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard did not combine it with faith.[a] 3Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said,
“So I declared on oath in my anger,
‘They shall never enter my rest.’ “[b] And yet his work has been finished since the creation of the world. 4For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in these words: “And on the seventh day God rested from all his work.”[c] 5And again in the passage above he says, “They shall never enter my rest.”

6It still remains that some will enter that rest, and those who formerly had the gospel preached to them did not go in, because of their disobedience. 7Therefore God again set a certain day, calling it Today, when a long time later he spoke through David, as was said before:
“Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts.”[d] 8For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. 9There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; 10for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. 11Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience.

12For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Enter into rest. Present tense. Rest as an act of obedience?

Rest. I don’t do it well. I can’t remember if it was talked about as a spiritual discipline in class a few weeks back, I have a funny feeling it was.

A Sunday is not a Sabbath even if we go to church. Can a life be lived effectively with significant rest periods? The world will keep turning without our focussed input.

Rest. Take two is a scrabble game, can I take two hours out for rest, for God, for doing nothing but ‘resting’? Not sleeping. Resting.

Stopping. Existing. Living. Resting. Restore.

Take two.

Put a hole in my head and my brain would just drip out onto the keyboard.

Car wash this morning. Disorganised mayhem which had me on the brink of yelling at least three people if not more. Those kind people who gave off the apperence that they were doing something by holding a sponge and waving it didn’t (quite literally) help. There were way too many people on one car at a time. There was no organised system. The second hose was unusable and when usable lasted about ten minuites before breaking. I don’t know exactly how many car’s we did. It took a lot longer than it should have, and it cut into the start of class time. Some short bursts of waterfight type action, I got well and truly wet, but too much stuffing around. Jane has far more patience than I ever will.

I had too much sun, I forgot to bring water so aside from stealling most of Michael’s I have a headache. I can’t be stuffed walking the dog. I should be doing homework, I should be nano’ing. Fat chance. Seriously Michael has no clue when it comes to complimenting people, maybe just who he is, but dropping them left right and centre? I told him to mean it if he said it, didn’t quite work (ie: compliments lack value when overused, ha maybe I should have been more clear.) as he said he does mean them. *shrug*

Aside from that, I’m really quite cheerful. I have Caf tomorrow which means no more carwashing for me. It is wondefully warm. The homework is really not so bad. The nano will be quite enjoyable.

Lets go find drugs for the head and return to life as fully functioning human being.

And so Nanowrimo begins. I wrote 555 words last night – was pretty tired and the going was slowish, I think it’ll be faster next time I put fingers to keys. Much thanks to Dave whos typo gave the inspiration for a name. We shall see how this all goes. Why online and not writing right now? Well I intended to finish off some homework this morning – nothing stops the procrastination disease.

Carwash today. I’m getting to Tabor early, 11:30 or so. I believe we’re all going to end up quite wet. Jane deserves to put in a hall of fame or something.

Bought the Ignate CD off of Rowan yesterday. Had it on over breakfast to torture Emily, who after hearing less than a minute decided she hated it. I don’t blame her, it took a bit to grow on me, maybe that I’ve had it coupled with a few situations/incidents/God times that I like it more.

It is going to be fantastically warm today. This is the weather I was born for. Tomorrow even warmer.

Hello November. I like you already.
