Now we are Six children

Since Mum has released us to share the good news, here it is:

Unconformed isn't the only one having an addition to her family. We are too!!! We shall no longer be five. We shall now be six.
When I was One,
I had just begun.

When I was Two,
I was nearly new.

When I was Three,
I was hardly me.

When I was Four,
I was not much more.

When I was Five,
I was just alive.

But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever.
So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.
A. A. Milne
That is, unless God gives us another one.

The Quote of Wednesday

Posted by Picasa

Maximum - Minimum Value Existence Theorem:

If f is continuous on the closed interval [a,b], then f has a maximum value M and a minimum value m on the interval [a,b].

Ok, so I was studying a lot of math. In fact I've just gotten over my nervous energy high from my AP exam. I suppose you all want something you can understand. Well, I'm too tired to find something, so you'll have to wait 'till next week. Untill then you can pull out your calculus books and look this theorem up.

Psalm 66 - Memorization

Next week I'll be starting Psalm 5, but for this week I'm going to post the whole of Psalm 66. It solidifies the verses more firmly in one's head if you write them out a couple of times from memory.

Psalm 66

To the chief musician. A song. A psalm.
"Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth!
Sing out the honor of His name; Make His praise glorious.
Say to God,'How awesome are Your works!
Through the greatness of Your power
Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.
All the earth shall worship You
And sing praises to You;
They shall sing praises to Your name.' Selah

"Come and see the works of God;
He is awesome in His doing toward the sons of men.
He turned the sea into dry land;
They went through the river on foot.
There we will rejoice in Him.
He rules by His power forever;
His eyes observe the nations;
Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah

"Oh, bless our God, all you peoples!
And make the voice of His praise to be heard.
Who keeps our soul among the living
And does not allow our feet to be moved.
For You, O God, have tested us;
You have refined us as silver is refined.
You have brought us into the net;
You laid affliction on our backs.
You have men to ride over our heads;
We went through fire and through water;
But You brought us out to rich fulfillment.

"I will go into Your house with burnt offerings;
I will pay You my vows,
Which my lips have uttered
And my mouth has spoken when I was in trouble.
I will offer You burnt sacrifices of fat animals,
With the sweet aroma of rams;
I will offer bulls with goats. Selah

"Come and hear, all you who fear God,
And I will declare what He has done for my soul.
I cried to Him with my mouth,
And He was extolled with my tongue.
If I regard iniquity in my heart,
The Lord will not hear.
But certainly God has heard me;
He has attended to the voice of my prayer.

"Blessed be God,
Who has not turned away my prayer,
Nor His mercy from me!"

Binding of the Blade

Yes! It's out! The third book is out!
Shadows of the Deep, the third in the Binding of the Blade series is out. And a fourth is to come in eleven months, according to the Jollyblogger.
We've got four anxious readers in our family, so we'll be getting two copies.
Beyond the Summerland is the first in this series. Jo and I actually read the second book first, but you should really start with this one. There are just enough strange names to let you know you are reading of some other world, but not so much as to leave you hopelessly lost. It is serious and exciting with out the intensity of The Lord of the Rings (my eight year old brother has read both books).
Bringer of Storms is the second book. This one switches alot in viewpoint, but it is pretty clear when it happens (unlike some books I've read).
So as I can't think what else to say, I'll let Jo post her two cents.
