Well, we got the girls moved in. It was a lot of fun, and now we’re getting ready for the arena speeches and then the freshman reception… the first chance we’re gonna get a chance to really meet the freshman and the parents. I’m excited!
Whelp, today is the big day… in a couple more hours the freshman will be pouring in and I’ll have to be at the top of my game, but I’m so excited. This is what I’ve been spending an entire summer and semester previous working in…
There’s a passage that we all know that really stood out to me this morning as I was thinking and preparing:
The Armor of God
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
Especially that last part. This week (and every week, y’know how that is) I want to be able to have God use me and have His glory be seen in the heart of every freshman I meet today. I want them to see the God in me.
I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready. Game time.
Well, yes. It’s time for me to stop saying “Wednesday is the day”… Wednesday is today, surprisingly. And as such, I’m here at school.
It’s been fairly boring after unpacking. My friend John and I have been looking up and down campus, and later tonite Travis will be back and we’ll rock out hardcore, and I’m gonna see Rachel sometime.
Tomorrow it’s getting my major changed, followed by OB responsibilities, and then out with Nancy to do some Mentor Group work. I looked at all the pictures of my mentor group… I’m very excited. =)
I’ll write more later, but hey… glad to be back!
That’s what I said. Meh. Thanks go out to Jen Rose for helping me add one more word
Today I’ve got to try to get my homework done today. I’ve got probably 15 pages left, and when you notice I’ve done 35 or so already, it doesn’t seem too bad.
It’s an exercise in futility – I’m no longer and English/Secondary Ed major (Business is calling my name now… and I must answer), but so many people skip out on their responsibilities, and I, for one, don’t really want to say “well, I observed a classroom for a week, switched majors, and then didn’t do a work”… sounds shady, eh?
So, I do the drudgery.
After that though, it’s smooth sailing till I get back on Wednesday. Shopping Friday, out with the grandparents Saturday, Church and friends on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday will be packing and tying up loose ends, then Wednesday… well, we all now know what Wednesday is. Save Elizabeth and Aby (well, Aby is ALWAYS in school… GO NEOUCOM!) I’m the first to go. That’s not bad though – I’m one of the first out too. =)
Well, hopefully I’ll give you all a “Yo” when I get done with all this work.
Peace, Love, Popcorn
I almost decided not to write and entry today, but you know, I’ve done so well lately, and I really don’t want to stop the momentum. SOOOO…
I wanted to do something different. I’ve had a book for awhile entitled “The Book Of Questions” by Gregory Stock. It contains 217 thought provoking questions. It’s great for just thinking, and that ever-important intervis “Oh man the movie I wanted isn’t on the network” emergency.
But, since I don’t really have much to talk about, I figure “why not put a question up, answer it, and see if anyone comments?”
Does the fact that you have never done something before increase or decrease its appeal to you?
Increase. I’m always up for something new and to try some sort of adventure. New almost always equals exciting.
Thursday I might not be able to get away after all… but I’m not upset. In leiu of disappearing I might go out with the guys again before we all go back to school. Many of them I’ve only seen once or twice, so I’d like to see them one more time.
I need a picture for my LJ, but I just haven’t found the right one yet. I wanted to use my buddy icon of late (the king… he’s nifty!) but it won’t fit. Baby Bob might be a good selection too, but I don’t know if that’ll fit either.
Oh well… endless rambling, you see.
Tomorrow I’m going to get more of that homework done. 25 pages? Na… we’ll go for 30.
Catch you all sooner or later… and please, if you feel like it, post a comment!
I just finished day one of my homework (of 5):
2 hours… 15 pages.
Bring it on.
