What I Believe
QUOTE OF THE WEEK

Conscience is something, in a sense, apart from man. It has been put in him by God; it is a reminder of the voice of God within him, an inward monitor, and a man cannot really manipulate his conscience. He can go against it, but that is not manipulating it. It is possible, as this Apostle says again in writing to Timothy, for the conscience to be seared “with a hot iron”. But nevertheless it is true to say that the conscience is an independent witness.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones (God’s Sovereign Purpose)

National Handwriting Day

Today is National Handwriting Day! Yippee!

National Handwriting Day is an opportunity to reintroduce yourself to a pen or pencil and a piece of paper. In this day of computers, more and more information, notes, and letters are sent back and forth via a keyboard and cyberspace.

According to the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association (WIMA) website "The purpose of National Handwriting Day is to alert the public to the importance of handwriting. According to WIMA, National Handwriting Day is a chance for all of us to re-explore the purity and power of handwriting."

Today is the day to reveal your handwriting to the blogosphere! My challenge to you is this: write a brief note to your readers by hand, scan it and upload it to your blog. If you leave the link in the comments of this post, I will post it here.

I'll be adding an image of my own handwriting later today (this borrowing a computer stuff is for the birds!!). 

I hope you'll participate and invite your readers to participate as well!

Signing off until I can get my hands on another computer. . .

I wonder when that double a at the end of my name got there and how long I've been commenting as rebeccaa without noticing.
I hadn't noticed either!

Just saw this today - and I'm not even American, so kind of outside the "national" part :D - but I did it anyway. Here's mine:

This was fun, it's interesting to see handwriting, I think it expresses personality to some extent-just wish mine was more neat.
