something meaningful

"Our hope in Christ for the future is the mainspring and the mainstay of our joy here. It will animate our hearts to think often of heaven, for all that we can desire is promised there. Here we are weary and toil worn, but yonder is the land of rest where the sweat of labour shall no more bedew the workers brow, and fatigue shall be forever banished. To those who are weary and spent, the word of "rest" is full of heaven. We are always in the field of battle; we are so tempted within, that we have little or no peace; but in heaven we shall enjoy the victory, where the banner shall be waved aloft in triumph, and the shword shall be shetatehd, and we shal hera our Captain say, "Well done, good and faithful servant." We have sufferd bereavement...but we are going to the land of the immortal where graves are unknown things. Here sin is a constant grief to us, but there we shall be perfectly holy, for there shall by no means enter into that kingdom anything which defileth. Oh! is it not joy, that you are not to be in banishment for ever, that you are not to dwell eternally in this wilderness, but shall soon inhereit Canaan? Nevertheless let it be never said of us, that we are dreaming about the future and forgetting the present, let the future sanctify the present to hightest uses. Through the Spirit of God the hope of heaven is the most potent force for the product of virtue; it is a fountain of joyous effort, it is the corner stone of cheerful holiness. "

A most encouraging blog I must say. Mr. Spurgeon certainly was a godly fellow.

This may be your first blog without any "haha's". Is "haha" your favorite thing to say? Or is it dyslexia at the point of discovery saying, "Ah Ha!"?

Did you know "LOL" is a cyber phrase that is at least 10 years old? Do you know what it means? How about ROTFL? or LMAO?

You may want to start using LOL, since it is what you do a lot when you are blogging to hosers...

Why are Canadians hosers anyway?

LOL

Charles Haddon is certainly always quotable.

Canadians are hosers because of a movie from the 70's or 80's called Strange Brew. It's pretty much about a couple of Canadians and beer. They talk with EXTREME canadian accents and call each other hosers. Extremely stupid, so I don't highly recommend it, but that's where it comes from as far back as I know.

I love how infrequently and randomly you post on mr. significo. hahaha.

Brittany said...

LOL means laughing out loud.

joel sczebel said...

So?

I don't use those things.

Why would you say "laugh out loud" anyway?

Why not just laugh. hahahahahahaha. see? it just works well.
