      So i applied for this course called a 'Graduate Teacher Program'. It is for Primary schools. Specifically ages 5 to 9.

      Well i finally got a letter through in the post and i passed the interview stage. Now i have to apply to schools and it is certainly not a formality. With 41 applicants for 27 places. So 14 people are going to be disappointed.

      I really and just trusting God because he spoke to me and told me that this was his will for my life. I'm really quite excited really.

      Isn't it amazing how God speaks to you and all the things you thought you were gonna do are just overtaking by his amazing plan. I could have never imagined what he planned for my life.

      I'd appreciate some prayer for the final stage of contacting and applying for schools.

      Hello Strangers, what can i say, i missed you all too much.

      I may need to remind you all who i am.

      ABEUS IS IN DA HOUSE


      Life Update

      So the last few month have been hard, especially since i'm in my last year at University. I'm applying for a Primary teaching course (Age 5-11). I'm expecting to know in the next couple of weeks the outcome of that. It is an actual job. I will be paid smiley0.gif

      I'm still with my girlfriend Lauren as i have been for 10 months now. I'm still at my Church and fully trusting in God to guide my path.

      I don't know if you have heard of Rascal Flatts but i came across them and now i am like their biggest fan in England.

      Will you all give me a short update on your lives for the past few months. I'd be really interested to know. I won't be going back and reading everyones journals but i will be starting watching people again and i'll keep up as much as i can. I'm only gonna add people to watch who i remember and who comment on this with an update.

      Here are a couple of pictures for you:

      Indeed the day is coming where i will travel down to London to see one of the greatest Christian bands EVER!

      Casting Crowns

      Website

      Video of Casting Crowns new album - The Altar Door

      You need to hear these guys, their songs are so true. The lead singer is a Youth Pastor and he speaks in his songs about his past experiences. They have some Awesome stuff and i believe that there are songs for everyone's tastes too.

      I will be away all weekend and on Sunday evening the night will finally come! Woo!

      Church Sermons

      I am currently listing to a series on the Fruits of the Spirit and it is really challenging and blessing me. I really recommend you listen to it because it is really God centered.

      Fruits of the Spirit

      London 2012 Olympics

      One final thing... London won the bid to host the 2012 Olympics a while back. They recently released the logo they plan to use. They paid £500,000 ($1m) for this thing...

      2007-06-04T153749Z_01_NOOTR_RTRIDSP_2_OU

      How Awful is that. It comes in other wacky colors too. Well i took half an hour out an designed my own and it is below.

      London2012copy.jpg

      My design is simple but joins the rings into the text. I just think that if i can do something like that in half an hour (£3.00 average wages) then surely someone getting paid £500k could do better.

      since my last journal.

      I want to come back a bit so i might try and post a journal a week or something.

      Anyway i'll update you, all you people who decided to stick with me while i was gone. I have no idea how many watchers i have because i lost my sponsorship but i hope some people are still there.

      I got a good response on the pictures i posted today, i've already had 3 or 4 comments on each, thanks for that guys. Go check them out.

      The past 4 months

      My last Journal was about Switchfoot and i went to see them, they were Awesome, there is a picture below. There is a better picture in my inages.

      The Crowd at Abundant Life

      I also went and saw a band called Third Day who are Awesome, The concert was great and i flew to Belfast in Northern Ireland to go and see them. We didn't get to meet the lead singer at the concert and we were a little disappointed. In the morning we went to get the plane and we were in the duty free and some guy said nice teeshirt, i looked up and the lead singer - Mac Powell himself was standing in front of me!!! How cool is that. Pictures below
      Mac Powell in light
      The Band
      Mac Powell getting into it
      Me with Mac Powell

      In April i went with 2 of my friends, Mark (mah_9) and Ben to Spring Harvest, this was brilliant, we had a great time and we learnt so much and it really helped our friendships and our walk with God. Picture of Ben, Mark and Me below.
      Ben, Mark and Me

      I have also been to 2 touring car races this year, Rockingham (Indy car type circuit) and Croft. These were brilliant, you can sample my excellent pics below.

      I think the most major development in my life is my Girlfriend Lauren. I thank God for her as she is such a blessing in my life. She is so Beautiful, sweet, kind, clever and like me! It's like i've waited forever but now i realised why. i prayed alot about this and i really hope it lasts.

      What is up with putting pictures in your journals, it never seems to let you put many in? Anyway i hope you check out the links.

      Hope you all stick with me, i've had a tough time at Uni over the past few months so i'm thankful for those of you who still watch me.

    • Lost Planet Review

      12 years ago

      abeus

      After playing gears of war it kinda put a downer on this game from the start. It is hard to get fully immersed in the game play due to it being 3rd player.
      A snow pirate on the alien world of EDN III â€" a hostile and inhospitable planet that humans in the future attempt to colonize to escape the overcrowded and polluted Earth. The game begins with you witnessing the death of your father at the tendrils of a giant akrid (the native alien species) called Green Eye. A long and boring cut scene follows, the first of far too many in this game, telling a completely impenetrable story about evil corporations, weird scientific experiments and terraforming. None of it makes any sense, and it’s best dispensed with.

      COME ON GUYS smiley11.gifsmiley11.gifsmiley11.gif
      We want action not cut scenes.

      The graphics it has to be said are very good, which does help the game out and the levels that you play are really well designed and that makes it fun. Also the weapons that you get at your disposal are real beasties.
      All of this makes the multilayer an experience not too miss.

      There are a few problems, firstly the control of the character is not great and kind of put me off. Also the cut scenes take up about half your life and they contribute to a story that would actually kill you if you tried to figure it out. It is crazy.

    • Gears of War Review

      12 years ago

      abeus

      Hi guys, i got Gears of War for the Xbox 360 and i just want to do a review so you buy it smiley11.gif

      Ok, you start off the game as a guy who is taken out of jail to help fight a war against some nasty alien dudes that are content on taking over the Earth. Anyway, it takes you straight to the action and it feels like the real think.

      I think what makes this games is the realism of the characters. I got so involved in the fighting and got hooked on the game. It always feels better shooting up alien dudes than people. You take out more aggression on them and cheer when they are all dead. Or that just may be me smiley10.gifsmiley10.gifsmiley10.gif

      I like the fact they have made the game so that to achieve the gamer points you have to go through the game several times. Collection all the COW tags and playing on multilayer as Dom are fun. Especially since you'll be with your mate shooting the hell out of aliens smiley11.gif

      The battles get harder throughout the game but you know it's a good game when your heart is actually beating with fear because some big drone is running at you full pelt and you only have that split second to dive out of the way. Or when you have some flesh eating little monkey things attacking you and you just go crazy with your gun. It is so fun.

      Obviously this game is not just a killing frenzy, There is lots of different things you have to do through the game which turn it into a bit of a strategy game too. This especially becomes more important on two player

      I would really recommend that you purchase this game if you have an Xbox 360 as it is something to keep you going while you wait for Halo 3. I would give this game an 8.5/10 as it could have some improvements with the Online multiplayer.

      Well it seems a while. I'm sorry i haven't comment on anyone much recently. I'm just about to get to that though. So if you think i don't love you and that makes you not want to comment here then don't worry because i am coming to comment very soon.

      I've been really and i mean really busy these past few weeks. I've had 5 assignments to do and they are finally finished. I thought I'd get a journal in before my 2 exams coming up this month.

      I've had a bit of a weird month. Up an down but mainly up i feel for some reason. I'm having trouble with a few of my friends but i really feel God is at work with that now and it's only making me stronger for him. Realizing that although my friends aren't always there, he is.

      smiley9.gif Hats off to Switchfoot who have produced a brilliant album called Oh! Gravity. Less than a month before i go and see them now. Oh if anyone can do the clapping that they do on the track 4:12 - You my friend are a LEGEND.

      Please keep in contact with me, i will be on here but not all the time. I have msn if you want to chat with me.

      I'm gonna sign off now but i pray that God will protect and be with you all. smiley1.gif

      G'day all ya pucker people.

      music_note.jpgFor those of you who don't know, i write songs. It has always being the case of i have no one to write the chords or sing them. I have the tune but i am a rubbish singer.
      So i have finally decided to kick myself up the butt and get it sorted, so i have 3 songs on cd sung by yours truly. Ha. Anyway i'm taking it to play to a couple of people in the Worship team. So hopefully they will like them and will soon be played in Church.

      007logo.gif I went to see Bond on Tuesday night and i think it is the best one i have seen. I was very impressed with Daniel Craig, he really made the part his own. He had the same phone as me too so that was also a bonus.

    • RazersEdge

      11 years ago

      Oh and in regards to the second song in my journal, I haven't chorded it yet, I don't have an acoustic guitar at home or a piano anymore... so it is tough to chord with a bass lol. I'll probably chord it within a month and a half though and when I do I'll repost it. I'll be at School of Ministry and so I'll be able to steal somebody's guitar and get it down on paper. I am going to the Worship module so during that time one of my assignments is to write 3 original worship songs lol. I've got a dozen or so that just need to be chorded haha.

    • RazersEdge

      11 years ago

      Coulda sworn it was one of yours, along with this one. The song I sent earlier doesnt match up with anything in my songwriting book, and I'll usually have a song scribbled down in 2 or 3 places before it ends up on my PC

      Precious Jesus

      Verse


      When I’m falling apart


      And there’s too much on my Heart


      Broken, Sad and Lonely


      Only one place I can turn


      Cos he has got it all


      And I lay it unto he


      Chorus


      Jesus, Saviour, Precious Jesus


      I come to you oh Lord of Majesty


      Jesus, Saviour, Precious Jesus


      You fill me with your Joy and you bless me


      Jesus, Saviour, Precious Jesus


      Every problem I have you take away

      Verse

      I look unto my Lord
      Because he will guide my path
      He always lifts me up
      Protects me from the evil one
      With my Heart I’ll seek him
      Because I Love him so much

      I have a song in one of my folders here and it looks like my rythm styles but I am not sure if it is one of yours or one of mine since it is dated from back when you and I used to exchange songs back and forth (back in 2006) can you tell me if this is your song?

      Theres always a reason to try
      If not so we don't cry

      This hope I feel welling inside
      Springing from your wounded side

      Pain redefined
      For people now refined

      Send a fire to us
      To allow refinement so deep
      Bring in us a feeling of love

      Luke 2:1-20

      And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

      Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.â€Â
      And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
      “ Glory to God in the highest,
      And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!â€Â

      So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.†And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. Now when they had seen Him, they made widely[d] known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.
