So I got an incredible gift for Valentine's Day from Steph.  She bought
me a web cam!  It's awesome!  I can sit and talk to Steph or whoever
else has one, as if they were sitting across the room from me.  I've
also been messing around with Windows Movie Maker.  I'm getting the
hang of it and I like it so far.  I might post up some stupid stuff
that I've been working on so far.  We'll see how that goes.  Just
having some fun with effects.  If anyone knows of any free legally
downloadable good video editing software, then let me know.  I'm kinda
having fun with it.  That's about all right now.  I just wanted to say
thanks to my beautiful girlfriend for the awesome gift.

On a more serious note youth group has really been
pushing for revival, and I am lovin every minute of it.  Our youth
group has such a passion for God, and we have just had service after
service of the goodness of the Holy Spirit.  This past Wednesday was
another crazy service, and God did a lot in it.  People were shouting
and flowing in the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the Lord moved.  It was
kinda weird though.  I felt like I was forcing it.  Like I was trying
to hard to do something that the Lord was supposed to build in me.  I
put myself in check and prayed off in a corner, and at first I thought
that I was just Spiritually flat at the moment and didn't have any more
praise in me, but I've been thinking about it a lot and maybe that's
not it.  The Bible is all about making a joyful noise, and raising your
voice and singing and shouting unto God, but there is also a verse that
I've heard a million times that I've never really thought about
seriously til now, because it's really never applied.  Psalms 46:10
says "Be still, and know that I am God."  Sometimes you don't have to
always be screaming at the top of your lungs to give God praise.  I'm
loud all of the time, so maybe my sacrifice of praise is to just be
quiet.  Correct me if I'm wrong...
