Numbers 22:21-35

Numbers 22:21-35...21Balaam got up in the morning, saddled his donkey and went with the princes of Moab. 22But God was very angry when he went, and the angel of the LORD stood in the road to oppose him. Balaam was riding on his donkey, and his two servants were with him.

23When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand, she turned off the road into a field. Balaam beat her to get her back on the road. 24Then the angel of the LORD stood in a narrow path between two vineyards, with walls on both sides. 25When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD, she pressed close to the wall, crushing Balaam's foot against it. So he beat her again. 26Then the angel of the LORD moved on ahead and stood in a narrow place where there was no room to turn, either to the right or to the left. 27When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD, she lay down under Balaam, and he was angry and beat her with his staff. 28Then the LORD opened the donkey's mouth, and she said to Balaam, "What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?" 29Balaam answered the donkey, "You have made a fool of me! If I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now." 30The donkey said to Balaam, "Am I not your own donkey, which you have always ridden, to this day? Have I been in the habit of doing this to you?" "No," he said. 31Then the LORD opened Balaam's eyes, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the road with his sword drawn. So he bowed low and fell facedown. 32The angel of the LORD asked him, "Why have you beaten your donkey these three times? I have come here to oppose you because your path is a reckless one before me. 33The donkey saw me and turned away from me these three times. If she had not turned away, I would certainly have killed you by now, but I would have spared her." 34Balaam said to the angel of the LORD, "I have sinned. I did not realize you were standing in the road to oppose me. Now if you are displeased, I will go back. 35The angel of the LORD said to Balaam, "Go with the men, but speak only what I tell you." So Balaam went with the princes to Balak.

I really enjoy reading your daily posts. They are always inspirational, meaningful with beautiful pictures to top them off.
I'm still having problems with my videos. I can't seem to get them to stay on my blog. I'm still working on it.
My friend goals23 and I are wondering what is the difference between the players that are listed as "summer graduates" and the ones on the plain "graduate" list. Would you happen to know the difference? I figured if anyone would know, besides the captains of course, it would be you.Thanks!

Hebrews 13:2 said...

Thank you again for the compliment...Let's see if I can answer your question about the "Graduates" and the "Summer Graduates"...As I understand it, the "Graduates" were basically the SBISD librarians and a few others that were given the opportunity to complete the "23 Things" during the Spring Semester of last year...The "Summer Graduates" are those of us that elected to complete the "23 Things" between June 5th and August 5th which you did in record time...You're going to be a great bilingual teacher!

Now, let's see if I can help you with your video problem...This is the way I do it:
1. Open a video you want on YouTube.
2. Find the code on the right side of the video as it is playing.
3. Left click on the code...It will turn blue...Then, right click on the same code and "Copy" it.
4. Open your "Dashboard" on your blog.
5. Open the "Layout".
6. Click on "Add A Page Element"...Be careful to pick the location of where you want to place it.
7. After the box opens, look at the left side and scroll down to the 6th item (HTML/JavaScript)...Left click on "Add To Blog".
8. After the box opens, type in the title you want...Now, move your cursor into the bottom box...Now, right click and this will paste the YouTube code into that area.
9. And, click on the orange "Save" button...You're done.
10. If you chose to add it to your side bar (the right side under your Avatar), it will be too big...I have another secret for you.
11. Go back into your "Layout" into the YouTube code that you pasted into the HTML/JavaScript area...Look at the code closely...You will see two sets of numbers...You will see 425 twice and you will see 344 twice...Here's the trick...Carefully place your cursor behind the 5 in 425 and "backspace" 3 times to remove the 425...Now, type in 213...Do it again for the other 425...Now, place your cursor behind the last 4 in 344...Now, "backspace" 3 times to remove the 344...Now, type in 172...Do this again for the other 344.
12. Now, "Save" it...That will bring you back to the "Add and Arrange Page Elements"...Click the orange "Save" at top of this page also.

That's how I do it...You have to play with the numbers in the YouTube code...Let me know how it goes...I'll check in on you from time to time.

Have a great evening.
