It seems like for the last two weeks I have been really preoccupied with progression. Right now I kind of feel stagnant as far as responsibilites and relationships are concerned. It's like God has been giving me a big stop/wait sign with a few of my big personal concerns now, and being obedient in this way is not as easy as it sounds. Having a fairly time consuming class load keeps me distracted enough most of the time, but I've had quite a bit of introspection time lately. Allowing God to just scour and reveal all the dirty feelings I've harbored toward people I really like. Though they're not pretty, I really feel much better now that I know what they are and have given them to God. In addition to this, I just got back from the Belle Aire Men's Conference w/ Vance Pittman, and I've had a similar smack in the face/relief type of experience. In reference to John 15:16 he said that God's purpose is being accomplished in my life as I'm living it now, and he later asked "When was the last time we thanked God for putting us were we are?" At this time I honestly thought that the only way that the message could be more personal was for Vance to insert my name somewhere in it. I guess I'm just really thankful right now that I serve a God who is able to be so intimate with me.
On a lighter note, I sadly won't be participating in the costume contest at the post-homecoming party tomorrow (unless someone can magically supply me with a trip to Party City . . . J/K). I wasn't able to find what I needed at the Wal-Mart to become the Phantom.
But no worries! We're playing Lousiana-Lafayette tomorrow, who apparently is significantly worse (rankings wise) at football than we are. So GO RAIDERS!!!!!!

Okay everyone, enjoy the pictures!
At their world premire performance these guys were known as Apprehensive Identity because they didn't have a name yet. I'm now referring to them as Damascus Road, b/c thats what I've been told is the name that's sticking right now. If all else fails I'll just call them the artists formerly known as Apprehensive Identity. J/k, but in all seriousness they did great for a first performance. We'll just have to see what the future holds for them.

I don't know about you guys, but fall break has been rolling by pretty quick for me. I've passed almost all of my time by sleeping and tagging along (my life story) with my sister wherever she goes. We went to the mall on Saturday where I browsed for clothes I have no cash for, and I saw the girl who lied to me about having a date for the Fall dance freshman year in High School. But I'm not bitter :) My family did have some bad news though. My uncle's (mother's sister's husband) mother died. She'd been in and out of the hospital for a couple of months with lung cancer, and a few other problems. The family seems to be dealing okay with it so far. We spent a few hours with them on Sunday. I guess that's it for now. I have to go pick up my pictures anyway, which will promptly be up on Phusebox as soon as I get back to my scanner.

We've been together for over 2 years now, but tomorrow we have to go our separate ways. It's okay. It's for the best. And it's only for a little while. You're not feeling well now, literally falling apart. We need some space for a while. I know a great place back home were they can make you all better. Please forgive me, but I have to do this. I hope to see you soon, when you're feeling better.

You are Ephesians.
Which book of the Bible are you?

Okay, now can anyone guess the book of the Bible I've been pouring through for the past 25 days? Yeah, Ephesians! And in all honesty, the message inside rings pretty true in my life too. This is my cool moment for the day.
