WELL... It has been a super long time since I have updated this thing.  This site is really looking good : )

God is so good.  I am liking New York more than ever. I am really starting to feel at home here... which is sort of a strange thing.
God is working in such an awesome way on my campus, and it is such a privilege to witness it all. 

I am still really enjoying school as well.  It is so demanding.  But I have really learned so much already.  What a blessing to get to do what you love.

art school....

September 06 2005
art school is so much fun. it is not real school at all. not saying it's not difficult... just in it's own way. it's fun difficult. i am so thankful for getting to come to school and get to do what i love all the time. ... and that it is considered work.
getting to see everyone sprawled out all over campus working on artwork of various kinds is really beautiful and inspiring.
yippeee for art school.

Regarding the last entry....

August 28 2005
No, I was not sad at all. Actually I could barely contain my laughter because my roommate was very upset. Is that bad? The funny thing is that the day before we thought that the frog was dying... but apparently the fish sacrificed his life... and now the frog is fine.

Today I visited The Four One One. I really liked it. And Jason liked it too.... although he didn't spare me the many complaints on how long it took to get there because the weekend G train is slow. But the awesome thing is that he actually went. So I will take all his complaining... it just means God is at work. And that is Amazing. I think Im going to go back there next week and then try and visit two other churches.... dont know. We will see. Please pray for Jason if he crosses your mind.

I got to tell my roommate about Jesus the other night. God is so good. She was SO interested. She doesn't really know anything about Him and her heart is very open. And she really wants to know all she can about it. I am so excited. GOD is so faithful. There are so many opportunities here to witness.... just pray that I will take advantage of every single one.

Also... if you think about it. Pray that if it is God's will, I will find a good Christian friend here on campus. It is so hard being without that support. But in a way I think God is teaching me how to stand on my own... well actually not on my own at all... But to rely on Him and stand in Him alone. But my legs are beginning to feel a bit wobbley. When I am weak, then He is strong. HE IS FAITHFUL!

I love you guys. I miss you! and Im praying for you.
I have my first SIX hour art class tomorrow from 9- 4. uuuuuuuhhhhhhh.

Good bye Mr. Fish....

Please excuse me if i have a breakdown...

August 16 2005
I have this pit in my stomach.... which i think is fear and of course anticipation. The fear part all began this morning when my mom informed me that i cannot come home for both Thanksgiving and Christmas... I have to pick one. So obviously I am going to pick Christmas. But STILL. That is SEVENTEEN weeks away. Oh I love having no money. It is amazing.
So now... I think i'll go sit in a corner and cry. not really....
but maybe.................
I dont want to go to New York anymore.
Ok... YES I do.
I know that God is going to work it all out. It is just so weird.... not being with your family for Thanksgiving?
I am so frustrated.

My New Roomie

July 10 2005
My new roommate called! Her name is Caitlyn and she is from Seattle... oooooh.... ahhhh....
She sounds very sweet. She isnt a Christian, but when I told her I was she sounded interested and said that she even "envies" people who "have religion." It was such a simple statement, but WOW! I cant wait to see what God is going to do in her life. It seems like he is already working and preparing her heart to hear about him. He is so good.
I also got to talk to Jason about Jesus tonight and I really believe that God is beginning to soften his heart.
It is so wonderful how God is always working and planting seeds and preparing the way even when we dont realize it. Sometimes its at the most unlikely time or in the most unlikely situation that he will give us the perfect way to share Him. He is so good. I cant say it enough.

Psalm 138

June 17 2005
When I called, you answered me;
you made me bold and stouthearted...
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve my life;
you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes,
with your right hand you save me.
The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me;
your love, O LORD, endures forever—
do not abandon the works of your hands.

Psalm 138: 3, 7, 8

What a wonderful promise.


June 13 2005
Today is the first day since summer started that I have been alone. I have worked 8- 5 every weekday, and at night and on the weekends everyone is at the house. Im not really complaining, because i always have something to do, but everyone NEEDs to be alone once in a while. And I really need to work on my artwork before school starts. When people are around I cannot concentrate, so I have really been neglecting it lately. Not a good thing when Im sapposed to be preparing for art school. Im getting scared that I will fall behind. I get the next two weeks off, so hopefully I will get a few days to relax and get stuff done.
Im starting to freak out a little about moving to New York. I know that God has so much planned for me up there, and all I want to do is be available for Him to use me. BUT, the fact that I am leaving everything I know is starting to become more and more real. Yet, I am sure that everyone feels this way at some point or another. God is so good and I know He will take care of me. When has he not?
BTW- I really like phusebox because only one person I know is going to read this. super.
