[ mood | anxious ]

Finally! Spring break has arrived. And i am loving it. Stay up late, sleep in, do a whole bunch of nothing. Its wonderful. Close to college lol. Tonight is dinner with the girls and then me and mir are having our traditional weekly night of American Idol, one of the best shows ever and we finally get to see the guys sing!! holla!! Tomorrow is bens goodbye thing at church and i can't wait, its gonna be great. Sad, but great. Its been a fun past 5 years and so many memories have been made. It will be sad to see him go. But it will be exciting to get someone new. Theres a time for everything.  Anyways. i'm loving spring break but at the same time i can't wait to get back to school. not for work but i already miss everyone up there and hanging out and such.

[ mood | contemplative ]

So this past week has been Missions Emphasis week.  And can i just say it has been absolutly amazing!!! God is doing some crazy things around the world right now and it is just unbeleivable.  There has been some intense persecution as well but that just means we got the Devil on the defense. lol. It amazes me how God chooses to use us to reach the world with the Gospel. How many other ways there must be for Him to do so.  And there are so many oppurtunities for missions around the globe.  I have been so touched this week with the speakers that have come and shared their lives with us.  Steve Saint came and his dad was one of the 5 men that were killed (one of which was Jim Elliot) and he talked about how he often is asked how he could forgive these people. He said growing up he had never really thought about, he figured that if his dad died for these people (he had guns he could have killed them) and his "aunt" (mrs. elliot) went back to live with them, and his mother returning as well, that these must be some kind of special people and he couldn't wait to meet them.  He said it was not so much his forgiveness of the people, but their forgiveness of him, because since they killed his father, in their culture he then had the right and practically duty to avenge his fathers death and kill the murderers when he grew up.  So in a logic they should have killed steve, but instead one of the men that had killed his father adopted him practically into his family and was as a father to him. To hear him tell this story was simply amazing.  It seems that all these missionaries that spoke, all the ones whose ministry in foregn countires were prospering and whose lives had truly impacted others had to go through great sacrifices at first. Steve saint lost his father, Gracia lost her husband being rescued from prison and still these people go on serving. It simply amazes me. God really taught me alot through this whole week, i no where as involved as i need to be, i am going to campus serve this weeke,d as a minor start, i'm not sure what i'm going to do but i'm going.  I really also feel like whatever i am going to do with my life/what i'm going to major in/whatever, God wants me to use it to serve him in missions, What that will entails i don't know. But i really felt that tug at my heart so i told God to use my life however he saw fit. Its kinda weird becuase i still dont' know what i want to do so that makes it intersting to dedicate to God's service, but He knows and that's all that matters. For now all i need to do is make sure i am right with God in my own life and growing in knowledge and love of Him and that i'm doing all i can where i am at Liberty. Peace Out.

Classes which mean work! [18 Jan 2006|01:48pm]
[ mood | optimistic ]

Today begins my life for the next several months. So far so good. My sociology class i love. The teacher is hilarious and i already love him. Hes from Columbia and so he has an accent and he kinda reminds my of cheech and chong just with some of the things he says and the expression he uses. HA. Anyways, my gned class is obvioiusly good again cause i got the same teacher:) This afternoon at 3:50 i have english-BLAH-untill about 5. Then it off later to Kris' house for a lil AMERICAN IDOL!!!!! Last night was wonderful. I forgot how obsessed i get over that show. There was that horribly ugly girl that looked like a slut and her mom wasn't to far from looking like it eiether. Then of course there were the two sets of twins who i simply adored. They were wonderful. Oh gee. I could go on and on. The funniest though was the guy who dressed like the statue of liberty and sung like two notes before simon was like thank you no. And the jumping barefoot guy that made it, haha hes hilarious. Mis liked him, but not his singin so much. Then there was the medley at the end of everyone singing lady marmalade. I think they must have asked those people to sing that song, no way they all chose it, plus some of them sang other songs to begin with lol. Thats prolly enough about that though. We got tv on our internet at school and it is fantastic.  This morning i watched regis and kelly. I was gonna watch rosanne but that station was out. . . . lol. but anyways, i'm gonna go now and see whats on. peace out.
