As most of you have already heard, there was a tragic car accident last night at Taylor University. 4 students and 1 faculty memeber were killed, leaving 4 or 5 others injured. Please be praying for Taylor's campus, students, the families, loved ones, roommates, and friends for those who were in the tragic accident.

Sometimes we don't always understand why things happen the way they do, but we must know that the Lord has the almighty power and we must run to Him with open arms. Find your rest and peace within his never ending love.

Praying for Taylor Univeristy. God Bless.

P.S. Think about how your actions and words are going to effect someone's feelings. If you mean what you say, prove that to people by acting out what you say. Don't live a double-sided life, people find out. Have integrity, walk the walk, don't talk the talk, spread Christ through your actions. If you're fake, people can see right through you.

The week is over! Thank Goodness.
List of good/bad of my week:

  • Had a "mid-semester" break down
  • Cried
  • Realized that I asked God to challange me this year...and He is.
  • Started serisouly thinking about mission work
  • Feel deeper in love with Jesus
  • Tutored the greatest 5th grader ever!
  • Ordered t-shirts for the amazing CoRe OnE!!
  • Spent three hours making a blasted bulletin board

Well...enough of that random list. This weekend shall be grand. Going to homecoming tonight. Tomorrow night is the play. I hope and pray that next week is better. I am playing tennis this afternoon with Ron Kopicko. How great is that?

I am learning to be content in every circumstance, espically being single.

So...sorry for the lack of updating. I have been real busy as of late. I should be sleepng right now...but that's obviously not happening.

Last weekend I went to TU with the family. Hung out with ma, pa, bro, his g/f, cuz bryan and the soon-to-be-cuz claire, and saw Kristen Long! It was a grand time and real nice to get away from campus.

Today was the first offical day I ever had a professor send me into tears for an hour. I couldnt beleive how hurt I was and still am from this prof. We will leave it at that. There is no reason why any professor should make one of their students cry for an hour.

Besides that, things have been going alright. This shcool year is SO much harder then the past two. I don't know if I want to go into teaching, my classes are not encouraging me at all to want to be a teacher(espically when your prof makes you cry), but I have an amzing Core group!!!! Yeah Core One!

Welp...it's that time. Goodnight homes.

I guess it's time for an update eh? I've been super busy as of late. My classes have so much work. I don't want the semester to go, because its not going to get easier. I have two methods classes, which require A LOT out of you. I have to do a crazy amount of observation hours.

One thing that I don't like about Spring Arbor, is it makes it really hard to be single here. There are so many people all around me with serious boyfriend or fiences. I'm really content in my singleness right now, but it's just so hard. I really want to find my true happiness from the Lord, not from having a guy persue me. Too often I've allowed my happiness come from other people or things. I feel like I'm falling in love all over again...but with the Lord. I just want to wait for Him and wait for His timing.

This weekend Amanda came to visit...and it was grand! I've missed her soooo much. This was a great weekend. :) Hung out with many people I haven't spent time with in awhile.

Hope all is going well for everyone.

Since Facebook has hit The Arbor it has been the talk of campus. I think LJ and Myspace have been taken over, I'm sad to admit. I would also like to admit that I am officaly addicted to Facebook. There has been some tenison in VillageF about who has more friends, comments on their wall and who is in the greater amount of groups. Core 1 officaly has their own group! Facebook seems to have taken over SAU's student body. I am addicted just as much as everyone else.

So moral of the story...if you haven't added me or written on my wall...you must do so now.

Core One is back safe and sound (with the expection of some trips to the hopsital) from Cedar Bend. This weekend was a huge test of faith and challange for me. I think Core One is the most amazing group of kids I've seen! We pulled together and had a great time, through the good and the bad! I think my core group is every PA's dream! :) You guys are great!!! :)

Besides that things are going okay I guess. I was real sick all weekend and still am. Whenever I talk or laugh I burst into this coughing fit that seems to never end. Maybe if I don't feel better soon I'll go to the docs. Yeah. I wish I could describe how I'm feeling about certain situations. I just don't understand things and ugh...I just was freakin' answers. UGH!!!!! I'm trying to hide my frustration and hope that it will turn into contentment. blah. this sucks.

I'm gonna go to bed. Goodnight.
