"Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom." Psalms 90:19
A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.
C. S. Lewis
Well I am currently procrastinating the completion of a presentation due in an hour and some change. It is a good one, just i need a break from it.
This is really odd, but I have for some time now, had a fear of having a door opened and it hitting my feet and breaking my toes or ripping off my toe nails. I always wear chacos so it is always a possibility.
I am so close to camp that I can taste it. I just have a test, two finals, a presentation, and three papers away. That and packing, moving and playing in a concert as well. I am ready. God is gonna be huge.
God is in control, and I know that all the things in life that we face are usually way smaller than we make them out to be…1 Thes. 5:16-18
Procrastination. DUBSTEP. No Sleep. Starbucks. = Exam Week First Aid Kit.
So you see, we have to take our clothes off to have a good time.
Anyways that’s over.
I am starting to become stressed. I have so much on my plate right now and I have many more things in my life that partially disgusts me about myself. I really need to figure myself out before I explode. I know that I need to make a decision but at the rate I am going I know that if I do not figure myself out it will be the wrong one and will lead nowhere. I am really tired of not moving forward in hardly anything that I am pursuing. I am becoming a workaholic and that is going to change in the next week, I am just going to relax and not work so much. I am going to slow down and breathe and enjoy life and try to get ahead in this race without taking short cuts and not sleeping. Decisions are going to be made soon.
Less than 15 hours of sleep
1 all nighter and another hanging in the fringes
1 midterm that i probably bombed
1 paper that i am in no mood to finish tonight
1 extremely sore neck from who knows what
1 amazing night of dodgeball with my community group
4 week nights of work
2 days at Hargis to look forward to
1 car that still doesn’t work
2 really nice bike rides
9 dead batteries in my phone in the first half of the week
and last but not least
countless minutes of hanging out with people that are totally(totes) awesome
Thank you for being there. you are the one person who probably knows about as much as I do about myself. You are such a wise, smart, and gracious person who I am beyond thankful to have in my life. I am glad that I do not have to hide or feel ashamed of telling you things, and that is how it always has been ever since we met and became friends. I am never afraid of bringing you my baggage and crap that consumes my life and you rejecting me or telling me you do not care. You are more to me than you even and I probably even realize. Thank You.
Two nights in host homes, two nights of shooting pool, and two trips to Twistee Treat.
My first host home was your sterotypical elderly coulple(their words not mine when I asked if they drank coffee). They loved, like all grandparents, to talk about their kids and grandkids. They loved animals and by the pictures loved to travel. They were from Winter Park Baptist Church, in a small suburb outside of Orlando.
Yesterday morning led worship at WPBC, and it went really well. After an anazing lunch we went to Park Ave. and killed a little time. Park Ave. is a lot like SOHO, small shops and resturants. It was cool. After that we went on to meet our host families for last night. They were awesome, a family from Britian who moved here 7 years ago.
They were great, and super hospitible. We went to Twistee Treat. The first thing I said to their daughter was that she was a terrible cook. strictly by accident, but it was a humorous accident and nothing was taken as a deliberate insult. Their house was really cool, as were all the others in the neighborhood. they all had pools (almost) and the houses that did have pools were all screened in. I thought it was really cool.
The trip is over and has been but overall it was a fantastic trip and a great way to start my spring break
Thank you to the Delaney and the Burns families who were awesome and super hospitable to Garrett and me the nights we were with ya’ll.
After a great night in host homes,
