Random funny: One of the captions at the top of the Crimson White today says "Saban will pay off." However, if someone just glanced at it, it might look like it says "Satan will pay off." Just maybe. Not that I thought that or anything...
This week got gradually better. I dropped a class at the urging of the head of the marriage and family department. I'm much happier with life. My car is in the shop until Monday, and I'm driving a rental (which is interesting... a PT Cruiser.)
I also got free coffee today .... a grande caramel macchiato, at that! And it's Friday. I have class tonight and tomorrow, though. Blah.
Yeah, pretty much don't have anything too exciting to say. Just figured I would update for kicks. Hope anyone that reads this has a grand weekend!
God above all the world in motion God above all my hopes and fears I don't care what the world throws at me now It's gonna be alright!
'Cause I know my God saved the day And I know His word never fails And I know my God made a way for me
It's gonna be alright!
I'm really, amazingly glad it's Friday. I need some down time just to process, get my thoughts in order, spend some time with Jesus. This has been an emotionally exhausting week, and I would appreciate prayers.
Happy things from this week: -Girly movie nights with Tiffany -Harassing my newest roommate -My new iPod toy (external speakers) -Wednesday night and hanging out w/ Rob and others from church -Wheelchair basketball and building a sense of community
Not so happy things from this week: -Being caught in the middle -Landlord issues -A certain conversation and the emotional roller coaster that followed -Headaches, among other things
My satisfaction is in HIM alone. And HE gives me peace and joy to make it through these days. It's going to be alright.
This one will probably be a random compilation of all the thoughts that are running through my head from the past 3 weeks or so, but I will try to keep it brief and not completely nonsensical...
I went home for Christmas, and it was good. Spent lots of time with the family, got some fun Christmas presents (an iTrip and Gilmore Girls DVDs were some of the faves).
I went to Shreveport with my dad for the Independence Bowl. It was interesting. We had some good conversations, and I actually was glad that I went. We also at some good, Cajun seafood. Alabama lost, but it was a good game. We almost saw a brawl in the stadium (as it was, we saw a guy get tackled by about 4 security guards).
Keke and I went to Passion Jan. 1-4, and it was amazing, of course. I don't think I can sum it up in a blog post. The worship was great. The speakers were fantastic. I'm in love with Christy Nockels (even more than before). Tim Hughes and John Piper were probably my favorites.
Back in T-Town
And, finally, I made it back to T-town on Jan. 4. It's nice to be home. I've been spending some time with Rob (I missed him while I was out of town!). We went and saw a movie the other night - Children of Men, it was really good. I also got to hang out with Holly and Ashley Friday night, which was really great. Yummy Italian food! I started back to work today, and I can definitely tell that I have been gone for a few weeks! I've got a lot of stuff to work on!
So, that's the very brief update. I think I'm cooking for Rob tonight. The rest of the week will pretty much be consumed by work and classes starting back up. Ashley's birthday is Saturday; I need to get her a present. We are supposed to go out for margaritas because it's her 21st, and we all loooooooove Los Tarascos. I'm also excited about my birthday coming up in a few weeks. :)
