What a Weird Day

That is all I can think to say about this day. It was a super crappy day with bookends of awesomeness. I had my last final this morning and it went absolutely perfectly (meaning that I got an A). Then I talked with both Katie and Emma on the phone and that was lovely. I finished packing up and my mom and sister came to get me for a movie before I headed up the hill. As we were walking through Wal Mart (where we stopped before the movie) I received a call from one of the girlies at school. She was sobbing. She had been accused by one of our teachers of plagiarizing a paper. I know for certain that she did not cheat so I dropped my mom and sister off at Taco Bell and I rushed back to school to try to talk with the teacher and set her straight (in a nice way). She had already left when I got there so I sent her an email and we will see what happens there. I am praying my heart out that everything turns out well!

After I did all of this, I went back to Taco Bell and my sister had received some very bad news. I am not going to share the news but suffice it to say, we were both crying. I because of the plagiarizing incident and my sister because of her bad news. We all decided that it would be best to just get up to Hume as fast as we could so the movie was out. We went to the grocery store (which was actually a pretty fun trip) and then we headed up the mountain. When we got here we unloaded the groceries and relaxed for a few minutes.

My brother is speaking for Outdoor Ed this week so I went over to the chapel to listen to him speak. I was very early and had some awesome and encouraging conversations with Evan and some old friends. Then there was some excellent worship and finally my brother took the stage. I may be a little biased but I really do think that he did a wonderful job. It was decision night which means he shared the Gospel message. Whenever I hear the Gospel I am always reminded of what Tim Holzel told us in Joshua (ever single week). He used to say that Christians need the Gospel preached into their lives every day because we forget. When he said this to us I thought it was a load of Bull S*** but now when I reflect back on it I realize that Tim was absolutely right. I need to hear about how much God loves me and be reminded that Christ died for me every single day! I really needed it tonight and I had the pleasure of hearing it from one of my very favorite people who I respect above almost anyone else.

So, it was a very long and bizzar day, but it is over now. God is good. He is in control, He knows what is best, and He loves me. How could I possibly ask for more.
