My Series

I recently switched to the new version of Blogger. From your end, I’m sure it looks very much the same. On my end, that is for the most part true as well, but there are a few subtle changes. Most that I have come across are in the post editing options. I can edit the posting date, and individually set whether to allow your comments and backlinks, and to edit the post time. Another option that I quite like is the ability to add labels. Because it’s so new I don’t think I’ve really got the hang of it, but for now, I’ll explain the series I’ve started:

Harry Potter — Cultural Icon

It’s interesting how much Harry Potter — the fictional wizard boy that every kid has read about and made J.K. Rowling an instant millionaire — has become so much of our culture.

Isaiah 54

I’ve read this before, but I would have to say this passage of scripture is among my favourites.

For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

Isaiah 54:10, 17

The History of Blogs

I feel like I spend too much time on the internet, but every so often I do come across something interesting. Whether it’s interesting for you is something you’ll have to decide. I’ll probably post such web sites as I would want to some day come back to, or tell someone else to check out.
