Friday I went to Tom's house with Lauren and some other friends and man, we laughed. Well, Lauren and I did anyway. Hilariousness ensues when the two of us get together... "scruffy faces". Seriously, if I laughed like that all the time I'd be so skinny, burning so many calories. Thats it Lauren, I need to spend more time with you so I can lose weight. haha!
Saturday we went way down south...ish. To Thorold, to Garrett's place. I'm not sure if that's how you spell his name-but I did learn how to pronounce his full name, and he doesn't have a middle name. I also know Peter, Mike, Amanda, Miriam, and Lauren's middle names. I'm crazy like that, what can I say?
Oh and before our Saturday evening adventures, we had Bible study at my house in the morning. It was good. So good. We read Titus and discussed the traits of elder's, women, and Christians in general-a very high standard. We also digressed, a lot, as is usual. Good talks though, I value my time with these wonderful women. We always finish our prayer with the song "Sanctuary", this week we did it holding hands (as usual) around a heater (not as usual, as most other peoples' homes are not igloos). I also learned a new method of prayer: ACTS (Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication). Cool.
Then today was church which was awesome. A number of times this week God has given me the same message in different ways...
Yesterday with the girls we discussed how at Chapel @ RUC, the speaker/pastor/guy spoke about Onesimus in the book of Philemon and the relation to slaves and masters. This morning our pastor spoke about Onesimus as well. A very random story in a little book-twice in one weekend.
This whole semester our teacher Mrs. Ivanchenko has spoken about "Lessons from the Geese", in relation to teamwork, which is kinda neat (and incredibly random) in itself. Last Tuesday was our last lesson. (for lessons go here) THEN...on Wednesday at Life Together, completely unprovoked and totally aside from our regular study, the host of our group played a CD that outlined the exact same story. Weird!
God is good. SO good.
In other totally non-spiritual or uplifting news, my home is an igloo. Seriously. My hands are ice blocks and my legs are icicles. I've been drinking coffee to a) stay awake to do homework and b) to TRY to warm up. Not doing so well...maybe it's time for bed?
Finally though, as tired as I am from life, I've been getting extra bursts of energy for things that matter-I AM COMING/Human Trafficking, love, good friends, investment in good friends, family, God, informing people about things that matter, getting involved, being real, love!!! (by the way, that was in no way listed in importance, just a bunch of random things coming out all at once). Kudos to my good friend Lauren for her encouragement and inspiration...although she doesn't think she's very inspirational, I think she is and really isn't mine opinion the one that matters? JOKES! But seriously, her passion is contagious.
I want to post pictures but I don't like the way blogger is working and not letting my cut and paste stuff...so another day, dear friends.
