What you see is what you get October 17, 2008

Do you know somebody that has this characteristic of “what you see is what you get?” A person that literally has no strings attached to their personality. Somebody with no falsehood, that they are who are they are simply because they can and chose to be. It’s like whatever happened in their past never really shaped them or hurt them, it’s like there’s nothing that could possibly bring them down, like an invisible cloak shields them from the wrong and pain of the world, simply making them the only true optimistic. It’s that person with so much humility that can talk about what’s wrong with themself, talk to you about what’s going on in your life, and never talk about anybody else for they know it is wrong to do so. A humbleness that never boasts, or mocks, or says anything coarse, its just always the right thing to say because it is the right thing to say. I do have the privilege of knowing someone like that.

One of my friends is coming home this weekend and I hope he’ll take a stop by at PBU to sit and chat for a while. This guys is truly a man after God’s own heart. It’s weird to be with someone like that, it’s not that I am jealous or angry of this persona of his, it’s more comforting. Comforting to know that a Christain can grow so vastly and so confident in such a short period of time. I hope and pray that God will spark some wild conversations and I hope that others can meet him as well.

Do you know someone that is such an encouragment to you? Someone who God established to be a wise and prudent man or woman that you can always look up to?


The Tenth/Done my first week August 31, 2008

Here I am sitting in my comfortable dorm room, having just waken up on a Saturday afternoon after my first week of classes. It has been an intriguing week to say the least. Some of my professors are just flat out awesome. And others… well, not so much. I plan on being involved in my classes, open with discussions, and prepared for anything that the profs throw my way. But not because I wish to be a good steward or student. In all honesty I just like to talk in class and have an atmosphere where I can make people laugh. Perhaps I am a bit quirky and a bit of a problem child, but hey, I have other issues to begin with.

Well with all this week has been, I better get started on my reading. I pretty much have to read several chapters of about five different books and read at least two books of the Bible every week. So it’s a lot. I look forward to it though, the geek in me likes the challenge.

Yet the thing I’m most looking forward to is being with my friends. God rox my sox and my shoes with all the blessings of relationships He has given me this past week. You all are probably pretty sick of hearing about how excited I am about my relationships. Oh well. I’ve probably said this in a past blog but being a friend is going to be my primary goal this year. I don’t want to pour out my menial problems on those who are actually suffering. But what about you? What are things that you want to with your friends? Or what goals do you have in mind with your relationships this year?

Well, tomorrow I head back to school. Pack everything in my jeep, head on over to Langhorne, and unpack everything into my comfortable room in Heritage Hall. I have to be honest, I AM STOKED! I hope and pray that I can make the best of this year. Looking back to last year, I was definitely a selfish friend. I took advantage of many people and made myself to be somebody I’m not, somebody I don’t want to be. I wish to apologize to all those I have either hurt, took advantage of, or simply annoyed and I hope I get that chance too. I’m also looking forward to the new friendships I have made and hope to continue making relationships. This year I wish to make an effort to be a friend, rather than have friends. I thank God for all that He has blessed me with this summer, in terms of my relationships (and everything else really), that He has continued to give me INCREDIBLE friends even after I have screwed things up.

So as summer winds down, all I can really think about is going back. I’m itching just to get out of the house again, out on my own (sort of). I think it’s going to be a good year and a year with a lot of pain as well. I hope I’m there to see the spiritual growth of my friends and they’re there to see mine.

On a side note, I got my tattoo Thursday. It’s a Bible reference, Deuteronomy 6:6-7, look it up and read the verse following it. I have it on my left forearm.

What about the rest of you guys, excited for school/fall/work?
