Do you ever feel some days that the world just loses its luster? We struggle each day to get through this life, and it never seems to go anywhere. You know what I think? I think I'm ready to go home. I don't mean Milton Tenessee, I don't mean my family, I don't mean my friends, I mean Home. This world was so beautiful today, the snow was the more picturesque here than I had ever seen. I was in love with life, and I was in love with this world. Then, in one quick slap in the face, the world was real to me again. It was not a place of happiness or love, instead it was the place of Christ's rejection, and Satan's acceptance. We live in Satan's domain, whether we like to think about it or not. Pray for the kingdom to come, pray for me, but most of all pray for the thing that I learned of earlier. You don't need to know what it is, just pray. There can never be enough prayer, and when we do it we are no longer in this earth, but in Christ's hands. Please, above all, pray. Let Christ fill you, and bring it to the world around you. Heaven knows the world needs it!
Love In Christ,
P.S. I didn't mean that I didn't want to come back home to all of you, I just meant that to go Home would be so much greater, and to see all of you there will be amazing. I hope you are all coming with me. This world may not seem to contain Him, but He is here, and He is yours as well as mine. Please, let yourself be borne home by Him in the end!

Why are we so afraid to learn? We sit in class, and we close off our ears to the things that could actually serve to help us. I know that there are many things we never seem to have a use for, but they expand our horizons none the less. It is not so much this that I have a problem with, but the problem is when we let this carry over into our spiritual life. Everytime we start to learn something we seem to be in a situation that we can't help but let slap us in the face. It's almost like God has to crush our spirits to get us to listen to Him. Don't you know He hates having to do that? Think about the way He tries to speak to us every day. We cut Him off and tell Him that we will have time for him tommorow. The problem is, tommorrow never comes. This is today, we can't live in tommorrow, and nothing will ever happen as long as God asks us nicely. We are not promised another day. Jesus admonishes those who brag about what they will do tommorrow. So why does He slap us in the face? Because we are idiotic humans. If we would only listen, our lives would be as He would want them to be, and He wouldn't have to do something He hates to do. Punish us.

Riddle me this; What is home? Answer: Home is a place of acceptance, of love, of guidance, truth, honesty, humility. Home is where you know your place. Home is where the heart is. So where is home? "Home is anywhere I'm on my knees." So, everyone, this I say to you. Go home.

What do ya'll think of this?
(28% dark, 30% spontaneous, 15% vulgar)
your humor style:
CLEAN | COMPLEX | LIGHT
Your humor has an intellectual, even conceptual slant to it. You're not pretentious, but you're not into what some would call 'low humor' either. You'll laugh at a good dirty joke, but you definitely prefer something clever to something moist.
You probably like well-thought-out pranks and/or spoofs and it's highly likely you've tried one of these things yourself. In a lot of ways, yours is the most entertaining type of humor because it's smart without being mean-spirited.

Sorry about that post I left yesterday. Satan was really having a field day with my emotions. I know that this is where I belong. I'm still not fully sure why, but this is the place that God wants me. Believe me, if it were up to me I would come back home, but the simple fact is that it is not, and of that I am eternally greatfull.
Classes are going well. I made a 100 on a test that most everyone else made between an 80 and a 90 on. And that was my honors class, all honors students have to take it. I know what you're thinking, it's because I'm at Martin and there are no truly intelligent people here. Think again. I have found more brilliance in my classmates here than anywhere in the past. That is, more people who are brilliant. Anyway, I hope that I am able to keep up the trend, and I hope that all of you guys are doing well also.
I miss ya'll. I'll be sure to talk to you later. Oh, and please keep me in your prayers, I have a feeling Satan isn't done with me yet.

Yes, I know I haven't updated in a while. I guess it just kinda gets discouraging when I get no replys. Whatever. I am doing well. I have really been enjoying my classes and stuff up here so far. I have made some good friends and started going to the BCM (Baptist Collegiate Ministry) and that has been awesome. I still miss all of you guys, but I am beggining to get used to it. Not that I'll ever be used to it completely, and not that I won't still miss ya'll, just that God has been preparing me to trust in His path. Anyway, I suppose that's all I have. I'll talk to you guys later.
P.S. Please pray that I start to make a difference in the lives around me. There are many people here that need some guidance.

Found out today that First Baptist Martin is trying to form a college Praise Band. I talked to the guy in charge of putting it together, and he souded enthused that I offered my services to help. Please pray for that. I don't want to jump into that if it's not where God wants me to go. Though I have always felt a calling to praise and worship, and it was pretty cool how it was brought up on my first visit to any church so far.
I would like to thank you guys for your remarks on my site. Esp. Michael, it feels good to be loved. In the most heterosexual way possible, of course, lol.
Speaking of Praise Bands, I really miss my electric and my acoustic-electric guitars. Maybe I'll have an excuse for bringing them up here soon. I could fit them in this tiny dorm, just barely.
Hope all of you have a great week this week.

Anyway, to sum up this past week, God is showing me that this is where I need to be. The funny thing is, as of yet I have absolutely no clue why. It just feels right. Thus far I've been fairly bored, outsid of class anyway. I have made a good friend in my sweet-mate Josh, though. That has been the furthest upside. Other than that, I haven't really had much to do. I am really enjoying my proffesors. They all seem to be extremely intelligent, great teachers, and best of all as far as I can tell none of them are full of themselves. They seem to be here because they care about us, not becaus they feel it's their duty to impart to us their "immesurable knowledge," if you know what I mean. Anyway, as I have said in the past, feel free to E-mail me anytime. It would be more of a blessing to me than you could possibly understand. I really miss you guys, and I'm not just saying that. And if you don't think I'm talking about you specifficaly, you're probbably wrong. I look forward to hearing from all of you.

The first week up here was better than I expected it to be. Turns out that my roomate is a pretty cool guy, and pretty layed back as well (kinda like me). Anyway, it seems that my classes are going to be pretty awesome. I am excited about all of my proffesors, and THAT'S saying something. I am looking forward to this year, though I do really miss you guys. I was able to come home this weekend so the first week didn't really seem as crazy as I imagine it will now, at least as far as missing people, but I am beggining to make a few friends here, so that is good. I don't think I'll ever achieve the kind of support up here that I had from you guys though. Oh, well; it's all in God's hands. Pretty awesome, huh. It's amazing how you can tell that God is working even when you're not seeing any results.
Anyway, as I said I will try to keep you guys posted on how things are up here as much as possible. Once again, I miss each and every one of you *thinks* well maybe not EVERY one of you..... just kidding! Anyway, as always I wish for ya'll to seek Christ first. That way I don't have to worry about any of ya'll making any dumb mistakes, lol.

okay, so, sort of. I submitted an application to Kroger yesterday. The guy told me he didn't think they were hiring so I didn't make much of it, but low and behold an hour and a half after I submitted it, while I was killing time before I went to eat lunch with Ashley, there was a message left on my machine at home. So, I called them back today, and they said they had one position open from 10 o'clock at night to 6:45 in the morning. Needless to say, I don't intend on accepting. Hopefully my parents won't make me take it, and I don't think they will. So, it looks like I probbably won't have a job this summer after all, considering I've looked almost everywhere I could think of. To be honest, it doesn't really bother me. I have enough left over from graduation to last me at Martin for a year, esp considering I'm going to have a meal plan for all of my meals up there. Anyway, I guess I'll talk to you guys later, nothing else exciting has really been happening. You know me, drab and boring. At least I can get online every once in a while now.

That's right, I am online and making an entry on a website!!! Isn't that cool.... don't you think.... anybody....well, I guess since I never posted on anything else no one is expecting me to post on this. But get this, in two months I will be at UTM with unlimited internet access and I will KEEP YOU POSTED, believe it or not. This makes me happy. I will be able to stay in contact with you guys even while I'm gone. YAAAY!!! Anyway, I will be sure to talk to you guys later. Maybe this time you'll see I'm serious about my postin'. Oh, yeah!!
Love In Christ,
