My Brick

If you read my last post, you heard mentioned the fundraising effort at USF that involved "buying" bricks that they would engrave to your specifications. Here's what mine looks like: (If you were standing the the side of it, since I can't get the picture to load right side up)
They put it in yesterday. For those of you who aren't British sci-fi nerds, it's a reference to Doctor Who. In the first season of the show the main characters kept coming across the phrase "bad wolf" and *spoiler alert* we find out in the season finale that someone had scattered the phrase all over space and time as a warning to the good guys. The Bible verse, Ephesians 1:3-10, is a response to that really cool concept. It says:

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth."
