Yesterday was a loverly day. No, seriously it was.

The weather was beautiful, cool yet not cold, warm yet not hot, the sky was perfectly clear, and when the sky is clear it is normally blue--which was the color that this sky possessed; a perfect endless expanse of Carolina blue. I was bored so I went outside and wandered around. Then I went in the woods and tried to avoid the poison ivy that blanketed the ground--I think I did a good job of picking my way around it but we shall see I suppose. =P

Also, I got a book, it fills me with great joy. Yes, I am a nerd.

Also, Cornerstone updated, that fills me with great joy as well.

Also, the word also fills me with great joy because you can just use it over and over and over again.

Also, haha no I'm kidding, but seriously, I don't care if you don't like Andrew Peterson's voice--his lyrics are incredible. He writes alot of stories into his songs, and I dearly love stories. =)

High this mountain, broad this sea
Still, my sin ran deeper
Grave offense my soul did wreak
Against creation's keeper
But see what power so fell and fair
Has stayed his holy justice
God Himself all hell did bear
How great his love for us is
Andrew Peterson - Serve Hymn / Holy Is The Lord

I am done with A&P lectures! I finished the last test this morning. Now, if I can just get a passing grade I'll be good...No, wait I'd be good without a passing grade cause God is that amazingly good--nonetheless though a passing grade would be nice. An A would be even nicer but yeah. =P

Please pray that I did ok though...

It's beautiful outside again today, and I'm heading to the office in a second because we are having a lunch or something.

Ok kids [and those adults over 18], I need a good book to read, preferably a story, a good biography would be fine as well though. The thicker and bigger the better, but it has to be interesting.

Oh ho! I found something to read, I need to go get it I'll talk to you all in sometime later.

[nonetheless if you guys have any good books that you know of, please let me know. =)]

=) I love spring, I love warmth, I love rain.

Rain Down your love on us
Rain down your love
rain down your greatness
o and cover me
rain down your love on us
o rain down your love
rain down your peace

It's raining outside--hard.
It makes me happy. =)

Rain is amazingness. God made rain. I refuse to use Christianese in the this moment. I'm just thankful for rain and life in general. =)

My parents are back from the mountains. It's good to have them home, but gone is the silence that comes from not having two younger brother running around. =P

Frisbee yesterday was alot of fun.

Ok guys, this is kind of rediculous but I'm going to be honest here, I haven't been writing a ton because I...haha, I don't even know why, but partly because I think mundane details of my day will bore everyone, but you know what this is kind of like my journal so I'm just going to write like it [at least in part.] Right now, I can't exactly remember the small details of my weekend so you're fortunate. =P

Other news I'm almost almost done with this semester [I also have a tendency to use words twice.], and that makes me very happy. =)

It's beautiful, although cloudy out.
I don't have anything deep to say...
So yes.
Life is good.

Doesn't that make you just happy looking at that. =)

My God is so good.
He is so Big
He is so Strong
He is so Mighty
There is nothing that He can't do.

Worry implies that we don't quite trust that God is big enough, powerful enough, or loving enough to take care of what's happening in our lives.
Stress says that the things we are involved in are important enough to merit our impatience, our lack of grace towards others, or our tight grip of control.
Basically, these two behaviors communicate that it's okay to sin and not trust God because the stuff in my life is somehow exceptional. Both worry and stress reek of arrogance.

It looks to be a promisingly warm day today. Which makes me happy. I'm not particularly fond of the cold especially in April.

I need to get on this whole graduation thing...such as find pictures and other assorted things. Yeah, I need to get on it...

Spring seriously does make me happy--that and not failing my Biology lab test. Oh and of course the fact that I am loved by and eternal, unchanging, unstoppable God. That's comforting. Incredibly so.

Oh life.

I realized we were doing good things, it's not as if we weren't doing good things. It's just sometimes I wondered why we were doing the things we were doing. And it started to hit me though as I read the Bible over and over and over again. That we're more than a people that just do good things; we're a people that model who God is to the world. I didn't want to settle for nice programs, nice people, nice place. I wanted a group of people that really lived out Jesus Christ to this world.
Todd Nighswonger

To me that's an awesome yet terribly frightening thought. I think it's awesome in the fact that God has entrusted us with this. Yet I'm also really scared with the fact that Christ has entrusted us with this. Because I know that me myself and I fall short of it so so often.

What's really comforting though--is that God can use me despite that...I'm not going to screw up his plan.

That's really nice to know.

Two randomly cool things that happened at Passion

1. Ok, one of the two things I was praying for was answered that Saturday. =)
2. This is kind of silly and small, but for the last session of Passion I prayed going in, "Ok God, I'd like to get close seats since this is the last one. But...yet, I know this sounds silly but wherever you want us to sit...well have us sit there. If you want us wayyyy in the back then well have us sit way in the back." Ok, so Lauren and I go in and it was crazyyyy, people were literally like laying on seats. We were at the front of this line but when we got in there it was almost full on the floor. I was about ready to head up to the higher section when I decided to ask this group if they had two seats and they did. So we sat one row away from the front. I know I know it's silly but isn't God kind?

My Creator, Savior, and Rescuer is so kind. I'm almost done with Crazy Love. It's really really good.

I got a bunch of books at Passion [if you know anything about me you know I'm a book nerd. =P] as I was checking out the lady told me that it looked like I had a bunch of work to do. I'm sorry but reading books is not work to me. =P I was way to happy about getting them. lol

English today went well, we got out 2 hours early, it made me rejoice--even if it was a little cold out today.

You know, why is it so easy to lose sight of the things that really matter?

amazing video

Passion 08

I went into Passion with a way different mindset than I ever thought I would have. I didn't go in on an emotional high. I went in with a...I don't even know how to say it.

It was amazing though. Incredible.

I don't have time to type it all out though so here's a list.

  1. God is good and God is sovereign
  2. Crazy Love was there! Lauren said it wouldn't be but it was and it made me so happy
  3. Yes, I am a dork. =P
  4. I got it signed.
  5. DCB is amazing.
  6. Meeting some people from Cornerstone [they were so genuine and real, yet really godly]
  7. They played the guitar hero song!
  8. Worship was amazing and not just the music just the....I don't even know how to describe it.
  9. And God is so good.

One thing though that I talked about some with Lauren though is how it's kind of sad how at a Christian conference people were pretty much fighting for seats...=\

I'm so frustrated right now.
And I don't even really know why...
It's just a bunch of different things.
I'm so sick of materialism.
Yeah, that's the main reason.
I'm sick of stuff.
I'm sick of the way it pervades into our culture and weaves it way into everything.
I'm sick of getting caught in it.
I don't care if I sound weird, it's true.
Ack, why do I have to be like I am sometimes?
Standing on the battle line I fight for my mind aching to be free
From this war that I face as I long to embrace and be with my King
And this fire in my soul, deserve to be whole is deep within my bones
And I love to be near as I cast away my fear, running for your throne


Sorry, I just don't feel like being serious at this moment. =P
Life is to short to just be serious all the time.
I'm still a kid.

And I'm not going to college guys.
Why? Because it causes ugliness, premature aging and beard growth.
Ok so maybe it is just a hoax, but I'm not willing to risk it.

[Oh and I'm kidding. =P The video made me laugh though.]

My caregroup is amazing.
I love it.
It's true.
Also, making straw structures or ummm unique [not abstract] straw art is fun. lol

It's a beautiful dayyy. It's 70 and the sun is out!!!1!!
I've missed the sun.
I'm sitting here in the computer lab at school waiting for my classmates to show up...alas they aren't here. [Alas is a cool word. =P] I'm sitting here typing, listening to music, and my chair is squeaky. I'm sitting by a window and admiring the gorgeouness of how it looks outside.

I love God.
I love life.
I love my parents.
and I love my friends.
Lauren is amazing. =)

I'm sorry I know it's April fools but I couldn't think of a good joke. =P
Oh well. =)

I like taking close up pictures. =)

I'm very happy today, it's still dreary but it's nice out. It's not cold. =)

It's April. I love April. It sounds like spring. I love spring.

See how it works? =P
