I think of how overwhelmed I am by all the devasation from Hurricane Katrina, and then I realize that it hasn't even directly affected me. What about all of those thousands of people without a home, not even a home to go home to now that it's all over. It's overwhelming I'm sure. They are just living day to day, trying to decide how they are going to provide for their family. Houston has taken a huge amount of people that have escaped from the Hurricane. Tallowood is opening up a shelter. It's really neat to see the Body of Christ come together to do anything possible. Then there is also all those thousands of people who will be set up in the Astrodome. They must be so hungry, scared, tired, and weary. It will be truly amazing to see how this all pans out and how the people manage. I am addicted to the news. It's just like after 911. Only this time we are a little closer to the "ground 0" and we can do something. I only wish we could do more. I guess we can, just pray. Please join me in praying for the people who are suffering right now! Make this personal, find a way to get involved, donate money, clothes, or time! There is a way for you to make a difference!

Lack of Productivity

I find myself not wanting to get much done. I have a lot to get done, I just don't want to do it. Let's take a look at those things which I really need to get done:
1. Clean my apartment
-put away clothes
-wash clothes
-run the dishwasher
-general cleaning of the clutter
2. Get rid of the extra couch in my bedroom. Yes, i have a couch in my living room and in my bedroom, plus the loveseat in my bedroom. It's really crowded right now and I don't like it one bit. The cool part is that I got my new couch though!
3. Hang canvases that I painted for my bedroom.
4. Rehang shelf on living room wall that doesn't look good anymore because of the placement of the new couch.
5. Get eyes checked. A few weeks back I had some problems with my contacts and I've been wearing my glasses ever since because I don't have time to go to the dr. Not to mention it's time for a new prescription anyways.
6. Read a whole book and write a paper for Systematic Theology.
7. Read for all my other classes.
8. Work out/ go running.
9. Go to the grocery store.
...and that's not even getting into my list of things to get done at work. I won't go into that! Anyways, I just don't want to get started on anything! I need motivation, all of these things need to get done, the truth is I'd rather just not do anything so list just keeps getting longer! Maybe writing this will make me realize how much I have to get done and get me movin', but it's doubtful! I'll let you know how it goes! (Yes, I realize I have an overuse of exclamation points!!!)

Ugh...yes, I'm enjoying classes, but it's hard to read ahead of time and now I'm too exhausted to stay up and read it all. I've done most of it, just not all, and some of what I did do was just skimming, I hope that's enough. Anyhow, it's been a long day, went to see the play, "Anne of Green Gables" it was good, but is the reason I'm still reading for class right now. Anyhow, it's 11:00 and I'm heading to bed because 6:30 will come sooner rather than later :(!

less is more

I'm finding that life is completly unpredictable. That's really all I wanted to say...

No 2 days the same...

Well, I've decided that as we all know, there are no 2 days the same in this life. I mean, really let's think about it. My excitement for today was that my couch, that was suppposed to be here over a month ago, finally got delivered today!! Hooray!! But in comparison, the excitement yesterday was that my nephew, Blake Andrew Boatwright was born yesterday!! He's precious, and I promise once I figure out how, I'll add a pic of him!! It just seems like each day is so full and all together it's almost overwhelming. I'm sure you all (all 2 of you that are actually reading this) know already that I'm working as the Preschool Associate at Tallowood Baptist Church in Houston. Anyhow, things are great here, and it's really cool how God brought me here and has affirmed that this is right where He wants me right now, but it's been a huge adjustment, and like I said, almost overwhelming. Life in the real world verses life at Baylor is so drastically different, I've decided that there's nothing really that can prepare you for it, you just have to be thrust into it, ready or not! Anyways, I've been in seminary now for one week almost officially. It's pretty great. A lot of reading, but interesting reading at least! The biggest bummer about taking classes is that I am taking a class that only meets for 3 weekends, which is cool, except for the fact that one of those weekends is Baylor Homecoming, which means I have to miss my first Baylor Homecoming and a lot of my friends are going to be there, literally from all across the US!!! AHHHH, makes me sick! Okay, this enought rambling for tonight...more to come I'm sure, probably the next time I'm trying to avoid reading for class!! Till then.
