Well.....It has been way too long since my last post and I have really wanted to sit down and do it many times and have actually sat down to do it but have been interrupted by different things. FOr example on Sunday I went to the Caf for brunch and while I was eating I got my lovely computer out and started to type and then it started raining so I obviously had to protect my computer so I put it away. But enough excuses, this is quite possibly the busiest time of the year for me and on the eve of possibly the busiest day of the year I still find the time to sit back relax and write to all of my faithful readers. This time is so incredibly busy that I barely have time to eat (well I obviously have time to eat but I do find myself sometimes getting to the end of the day and realizing I either skipped lunch or skipped dinner simply because I was moving at a rapid pace.) Tommorrow starts the beginning of New Student Orientation at CBU. It is a really exciting time here and the campus just comes to life. Students are moving in, saying goodbye to their parents, and then it gets crazy with the retreat and everything else that we have planned for this next wek leading up to the beginning of school. But during these long work days and very long work nights, I have come to realize that amidst all of this hustle and bustle and business and anxiousness, I find myself unusually calm. I know some of you are laughing now because you have seen me the last week and (thanks to my Jolt Gum) I do not appear calm. But I am not referring to physically being calm but rather spiritually and mentally calm or maybe just at peace. My mind is continually racing about things I need to get done and how to please everyone sometimes excluding myself, but during this I find that I cannot help but just exhale and see God's grace, mercy, LOVE, KINDNESS, and all sorts of other adjectives. Every morning I have been going to Wanda's and enjoying an Iced Latte while I read out of the Bible and this starts my day off better than any other way I could think of and it is not because of the Latte but rather the peace that I find in Him and the joy that I am able to find in all that I do. This verse is one of my favorite verses in the Bible because I am constantly needing reminding of it. "Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10. So if you see me tommorrow or the next day or the next week, please kindly remind me of this verse and of God's complete control over our lives and his perfect plan for our lives. Thanks for listening and I will try and be back sooner than last time.

In the Fam!

Well.....I know what everyone is thinking, It's about time. Yes I know it has been way too long since my last post. I have wanted to tell everyone about everything and there is so much to tell but have just been lazy in my blogging. First and foremost I am now a part of the loving and ever growing Steve Jobs/Mac family. I recently purchased a beautiful white Macbook. It is my new love, my fling in the summer, my wild and crazy impulse buy. Well.. it wasn't really an impulse buy because I had been contemplating the purchase for a very long time. And now I can say that a little tiny void that was in my computing life has been fulfilled, oh what a great day.

In other news, my younger brother started his football career last week. Yep! He is following in his older brothers footsteps, and he will begin his hard hitting experience with his first game action later next week. It is very exciting for me to see him learn something new and develop what I hope is a love for the game. Well I will be back shortly with another post about a few upcoming releases that I am very excited about as well as praise for the Greatest Trilogy Ever Made! Until next time this is my life......My Confessions.
