today was a good day! one of the better days i've had in awhile!!!
here it is wednesday though and i still have not gone to work yet...i was supposed to start monday, but each day i have gone there and something has happened that changes it....they say i will start tomorrow but i dont know...i guess we will see. (but if this is how it is going to be the whole time i need a different job, b/c i NEED a steady one!!!)
last night was our first winter guard rehersal we have 15 people, i am so excited because last year we only had 7 so we have doubled it! that's amazing! our first contest is supposedly feb. 3 but we are hopefully getting out of it! i dont want to go b/c we have so little time to prepare, that is not the reason we're not going though, its something to do with some kind of clinic being that day and all the directors are involved with it or something...anyway, we are also supposedly getting a new director to replace mr. morehead *God rest his soul* anyway so things are lookin good in the band world.
school has been entertaining these first 3 days back, 1. mrs. carnes has given an excesive amount of work *as usaual* but i am excited about this paper we are begining to write. its a satirical paper on one of the problems in our society (i am writing on abortion) and it sounds like it will be fun! i'll tell ya more about that later! 2. coach levertt has kept me very entertained begining our new class on government *which i am really excited about* 3. and mrs. mcelwain is gonna be kickin my butt here pretty soon on this trig stuff we working on. its kinda fun, but i can tell i'm gonna have to work really hard!
disciple now next weekend and i am getting pretty excited about it also! if any of you want to go just let me know and i'll get you all the details! i would so love to have you there!
oh yes, my last post i told you how my only "commetment" for the new year was to learn to love the way God loves and that everything else will fall into place right...well i've also made one goal to go along with it. i am reading the bible through in a year! i am so pumped over this, i have tried doing it before and always have failed miserably, but this year i got an awesome bible for christmas "life application study bible" and it breaks everything down so wonderfuly!!! i love it! anyway, so every post i'm going to start leaving you with something that i learned. i am beginning my reading in genesis. and i have read the first 4 chapters so far. in my bible it has the scripture at the top of the page and explanations at the bottom...well, at one point it gave this thought. "people (many of them christians) are too focused on 'how' the world came into existance, when what they should be doing is focusing on 'who' brought the world into existance." i loved this little thought because sometimes i find myself wondering 'how' but if God thought it was something i needed to know then he would have told me right...so i am now satisfied with just knowing 'who' did it! and just the fact that it says "and God said...." and it happened is enough for me, ya know
well, thats all for me, i think that is the longest post i've ever writen...it was fun though, i love just being able to tell about my life and have ppl read it...its cool. anyway, well i'm gonna go now! i love ya!
~love in Christ,
oh yeah...lol i am reading "pride and prejudice" by jane austen and i absolutely love it!!!!

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, itis not easily angered, it kepps no recordof wrongs. Love does not delight inevil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Our society confuses love and lust. Unlike lust, God's kind of love is directed ourward towards others, not inward toward ourselves. It is utterly unselfish. This kind of love goes against our natural inclinations. It is possible to practice this love only if God helps us set aside our own desires and instincts, so that we can give love while expecting nothing in return. Thus the more we become like Christ, the more love we will show to others.
*Everyone talks about what their New Year's commetments or resolutions are going to be...well, i feel that if i stive to be more like Christ, and allow God's love to flow through me in everything i do, then that is the only commentment i need to make. because i will want to be with God (in his word) and i'll want to honor him in everything i do (how i treat others)...so here i am...infront of all those in cyberspace that my come across my entry, i make a promise to keep this commetment! i know that it will not always be easy, but i know that God will help me! i challenge you to think through the things in your life and make a "commetment" also. I love you!

well, i've had an interesting couple of days...my last post stated that "love sucks" but i've changed my mind. Love does not suck! love is wonderful...its the consequeces that happen after u admit that your in love or after you finally open yourself up and are hurt...thats what sucks!
i have had one of the best christmas breaks ever...goin to oklahoma with zuzu was a blast. she, desi and i acted so stupid at times...lol
you know...things change...and there is nothing that we can do to change that! its weird actually...to think that *14 years from now i could be anywhere* (which was our conversation over lunch today w/ zuzu and her family...:) ) well, i dont really have anything important to say so i will just say good bye! i love ya'll...comments would be very nice! :)
yeah so i'm a blog"aholic" lol
