For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
~1 Corinthians 1:18

The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him; we have not obeyed the Lord our God or kept the laws he have us through his servants the prophets.
~Daniel 9:9-10

Thoroughly Modern Millie

Painting the set.....
Hotel Priscilla.......
Speakeasy door.....

Thoroughly Modern Millie :
Last chance - tonight at 7pm! :-) It's great!

It's about a lady (Millie) coming to New York to find a wealthy boss to marry. But then she meets a man (Jimmy) and shortly falls in love with him. While that continues, there is another story going on about two Chinese people working for the manager of "The hotel Priscilla" (the hotel that Millie stays in), and the manager kidnaps young actresses to a person named Buddha. The Chinese people are working for her because they need the money to get her mother to America form China.

Answers to Feb. 2 and 3rd Riddles

Feb. 2:
Tommy's Tumble - He lived in France
SH! - Sure
Name The Poodle - There was no question mark at the end of the sentence; therefore, it's name is 'What'.
What's The Number? - One

Feb. 3:
Snowball Sentence - The daughter spoke a snowball sentence.
Horse Jingle -
One was a racehorse.
Two was one too.
One won one race.
Two won one, too.

"A snowball sentence," said Mr. Jaones to his daughter, " is on in which each word is one letter longer tan the preceding word. Do you think you can construct such a sentence?"
The daughter thought for several minutes before she finally said, " I am not that smart, father."
Can you prove that the daughter was smarter than she said she was?

1 was a racehorse.
2 was 12.
111 race.

Can you make sense of this poem?

THE MATTHEWS (for now...)

Matthew 4 : 4

' Man does not live on bread alone,
but on every word that comes from the
mouth of God. '

Matthew 17 : 20

'I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed,
you can say to this mountain ' Move from here to there'
and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.'

Brrr! It's cold! school! For us, that's good and bad. Good because, well, sleeping in I guess :-), and bad because we are performing our middle school musical to some elementary schools, and CMS tomorrow!
Anyway... here's another bible verse:

PHILIPPIANS 2 : 10 - 11
that at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.'

And here's a riddle:

Little Tommy fell off his tricycle and bumped his head so hard that he was knocked unconscious. When he came to, he spoke perfect French. How come?

Is there another common English word, aside from SUGAR, in which S, as the first letter, is pronounced SH? Can you name it?

What is the name of Mrs. Letterman's poodle.

The word FORTY is the only number-word with its letters in alphabetical order. What number-word has its letters in reverse alphabetical order? Hint : It's less than fifty.

hey... :-)

Wow!!! Its kinda cold outside dont you think? :-)

I was reading the Bible the other day, and I like this Psalm. Its about thankfulness, which sometimes we forget. :-/ I will bold and italic the verses that I think are the most important...

' Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures
his faithfulness continues through all

As you see...I did bold and underline all of these verses. :-) Talk to you soon!

The Play, Dwarf Hamsters, and Fun Facts

Hi! :-)

So...Moriah, Brooke and me, all had an audition for a play called "Modern Millie" for a school play on Monday afternoon. We had to sing a song and read a script, not to hard, but I was really nervous!
Luckily, we all made it in! We are all 'Female Moderns'...

So last weekend, we (that's Brooke, Marijke and me) went to PET SMART and got "Fancy Dwarf Hamsters".
Moriah got a "Chinese Dwarf Hamster" at TONI'S TROPICAL PETS..her name is MayFlower. May for short. She acts normal.
Then, Brooke's is MaryGold (Probably Mary for short). She is so calm!
Marijke's is Lou...Lou for short. :-) She acts normal too.
Next comes Skitts. Mine. Skitts is normal...ish. She is so wild! Anyway, 'Skitts' is short for SKITTLES. Yumm! :-) Don't worry, I won't eat her.

* A 'neologist' is someone who makes up new word or expressions.
* Camels have 3 eyelids to protect their eyes from blowing sand.
* Golf balls were originally made from wood. Later, they were made of leather and stuffed with feathers.
* When glass breaks, the cracks can move faster than 3,000 miles per 5,000 km per hour ( I think that's pretty fast)
* "Rhythm" is the longest English word without a vowel.
