100 Things for my 100th Post
It seems to be a tradition in blogland to share 100 secrets about yourself when you write your 100th post! I hope you find this even a little interesting because I have had so much fun writing it! Thank you for coming to visit though - I have really enjoyed my first few months in blogland. When I originally started this, it was to be more accountable as I worked on becoming more like the Proverbs 31 woman.

Considering you are scared to put your own photo up, you have given alot of yourself in this post.

But you really need to buy a camera and take pictures yourself, your car, and a veiw from the train. (You don't really own that VW Beatle.)

I really enjoyed this post:). When I got to the bit about the spiders I remembered that I have a huge one behind my curtain that I haven't yet worked out how to kill! It has been there since last night.

I am amazed that you commute so far. That must be extremely tiring.

I recently read "Getting Serious about Getting Married", and so have two of my friends! We all like it in some ways, as a lot of what it says seems very true to us. However, we are not sure about all her points.

Love your post. All of your 100 things really shows how important your relationship with God is to you.

Jonny - I have made sure that is stuff that really couldn't be Googled to find me unless you were a criminal mastermind! It's not like I have put my bank details up! ;-)

I really will have to get a digital camera and promise to take lots of pictures then. It was quite scary to see just how much I resemble that picture though...

Sadly, the Beetle is not mine, but I wish it was. Isn't it gorgeous?

Sherrin - how can you surf the internet knowing there is a giant spider in your room??? Are you not worried that it will come and get you???

I'm enjoying "Getting Serious about Getting Married". I agree that she has a lot of good points but sometimes goes too far. My personal favourite is when she asks her date, "What kind of eunuch are you?" Can you imagine asking anyone that?!?

Bride of Christ and Bernadine - thank you so much for visiting! I'm glad you enjoyed a list of random facts about a complete stranger and one of my most frivolous posts but that, by his mercy, God was glorified through it!

I liked reading this post.What is the reason your denomination only sings psalms in church?

 
At 15 December, 2006 21:12, Blogger Keziah said...

Robert - thanks for visiting!

We only sing psalms and paraphrases of the Bible because of the Regulative Principle. I don't know a huge amount about it, but the core is that only what God has specifically instituted is allowed in worship. This contrasts with the more common "Normative Principle", which allows anything that is not specifically prohibited in Scripture as long as there is general agreement in the Church.

I love singing the psalms for many reasons. They are words that have been sung by believers for thousands of years. They encapsulate every situation from rejoicing to devastation and abandonment, while remembering that God is mighty over all these things. Singing them is also a really good way to get to memorise a whole book of the Bible.

It's not to say that I don't like singing hymns but I think the psalms deserve a special place in worship, whereas more usually now they are often forgotten about.

Any other thoughts?
