senses of me

here are some things i realized instead of studying for my biology final thats in 44 minutes.

my favorite smell is honeysuckles.
my favorite sound is thunder.
my favorite sight is the appalachian mountains.
my favorite feeling is my bed after a long day.
my favorite taste is dark chocolate.

there's no point to this blog at all. but it thundered and i stole some of kelsey's dove dark chocolate and my mind wanted to think about anything but photophosphorylation and heterozygote advantages.

on the 1st of May

ok this one might be controversial.. but that's alright. It's true so I'm puttin it out there. Disclaimer: I love America. I love our troops. k here we go. Tonight we got news that Osama bin Laden was killed in Pakistan. He wasn't hiding out in the hills like everyone thought. No. He was in a million dollar mansion, living in the lap of luxury possibly planning and scheming for more attacks on this country I love. It makes me cringe. By the average American's standards, Osama was a horrible person who deserved nothing less than the death he got. He caused so much pain to our country and to so many people 10 years ago. No doubt, he's done some truly despicable things, but here's something I got to thinking about as I saw the hate tweets roll in.. He is definitely in hell right now. I just saw a tweet that said by now Osama has stood before the Creator of the universe that he so adamantly resisted and has proclaimed him Lord of all. It's true and wonderful to think that the Lord is being known throughout this, but it gave me a wakeup call. Without Jesus, I'm in no better standing than Osama bin Laden. He is an absolutely horrible sinner by the world's standards, but the truth is every person is a sinner by the only standards that matter. Everyone deserves death. Romans 3:10 says "There is no one righteous. No not one." The difference lies in whether you choose to follow Jesus Christ is spite of your sinful self or not.
