dirty ice ice baby [Jan. 29th, 2005|06:41 pm]

[mood |cheerfulcheerful]

dirty ice ice baby...dundundundadadundun..yeah that is what it is in athens...i want it to stay here til monday!!!!!!!!!!

im glad i understand spanish..seeing how everytime i go to the livejournal website on ll's computer it comes up in espanol. gosh its so retarded. not that im bitter from being inside all day bc of the ice on our cars, driveway, and huge steep hill we live at the bottom of...or from working on spanish lit for almost 2 hours and reading barely 2 pages...because i have to look up every word. it is super hard to get excited about themes and writing style when you can barely comprehend the and follow the plot.

ahhh sorry! so negative!!! i am actually not bitter, had a fun time scraping ice off the cars with ll and sliding down our road when mandy, ll, and i went up the huge hill to get the mail (yes it took all 3 of us to get our 1 letter...that was mine and had money in it...praise the Lord!). and yes, secretly i do like reading in spanish even though it truly is hard. today i read some my spanish bible which was cool because a few years ago when i first got it i couldnt read it at all, but now i understand a good bit. maybe thats because i read the english bible a whole lot more now than i did a few years ago. or even last year.

yeah so speaking of the bible. it rocks. you should read it sometime. there is this guy names jesus in there who is actually not a guy at all. hes God. yeah and he changed my life. check it out.

anyway, after an amazing day of laying around (which i probably needed) and no starbux (which i probably needed too...not to have it i mean), sludging through spanish, and eating a lot of rainbow sherbert and reeses icecream (on sale at kroger..the sherbert was 10 for $10..dont worry, we only got 3...)..i must go eat din din w the roomies..not that we are going anywhere...but mad cranium party tonight at 255B pineview...yay!!

im so bored of little gods
while standing on the edge of
something large
what a glorious day
what a wonderful day today

i love me some crowder

honestly concert w bain mattox next friday the 4th at the roxy!! join my sis and me!

peace up dirty ice rain down

[music |nada, im in katies room..of course hello..i dont have a comp]

hey yall, its been awhile...and i would love to catch you up, but i have not been motivated to write the longest entry ever, which it would probably be if i did...so i just wanted to quickly share my heart and challenge you, anyone who reads this, to do this as well as pass it on...i know it seems like a lot of hype these last few weeks, but the tsunami was a big, i mean BIG deal. thousands and thousands of people in malasia, india, sumatra, thailand, indonesia, sri lanka, bangladesh, the maldives, etc, etc, have died and more are dying each day because of disease and displacement. yall, i know it is so much to take in, but please consider helping out financially...we have SO MUCH, and it really does help. i would do it not only now, but maybe in a month or two if you remember, donate again because by then the hype will be over, but the destruction will only be beginning. i mean, yall, these people's LIVES are destroyed...and so many loved ones have been lost, please please please, dont even think of giving as a big deal at all, think of it as foregoing that new pair of shoes or whatever to give people clean water and doctors (and more than that, if it is to a church or ministry, you are spreading the gospel to these people who seemingly have no hope. God is giving us an "in" to asia!! that is crazy that it is through this tragedy, but what a blessing)...since i know you are all itching to know HOW to give...i have listed below some reputable organizations, although there are many many more....so get to it!!!

www.worldvision.org
www.gfa.org/gfa/gospelforasia
www.redcross.org/donate/donation-form.asp
www.doctorswithoutborders.org
www.unicefusa.org/tsunami
www.crossinternational.org

thanks for listening, this really isnt any kind of political statement, i just pray that God will give you compassion for these people, so that we would give not because we feel sorry for them, but because we truly do love them and want their needs to be met. awesome!

later, ayns

[mood |optimisticoptimistic]
[music |none...it is late!]

woo hoo! finally an update...oh wait..of course in ll's room, where else? my computer=gay. anyway, SO much has been going on lately. i dont even remember what the last thing i wrote about was. i think it was right after i quit younglife. since then, it has been really awesome. just last weekend i went to good ole americus, ga (you have to say that with an extreme southern accent) for a retreat with prince ave baptist(the southern ga hub in athens haha). it was tons of fun with lots of bugs. no im jk, but really i was excited to meet people, even though we wore name tags all weekend and now i feel like no one knows my name (its like "hey...you..." haha whatever), and i met some cool girls that i really want to be friends with. boys, whatev. and honestly, the coolest part was God showing up and being all over that place. saturday night was amazing and i found myself wanting to run out of the chapel we were in to this big field and just be sitting with Him. so i did. anyway, it was cool. the whole weekend was about being a revolutionary v. being regular. i am convinced that there is more to this "christian life" that we havent even tapped into. i mean, do we do things one way because it is the only way or because that is the way we have been doing it our entire lives? not to say its all bad and im bashing traditional christianity, because im not. but my friend kim and i always are talking about it, and its like, come on there has to be more. a fuller life that we arent living, and i think its because we dont ask, or because we sometimes dont want it. we just want to be comfortable and liked and accepted. i am included in that. but anyway, it is a question that i am wondering about so let me know what you think. also, the hot topic right now is predestination...you know, whether predestined to be Christians or whatnot. so if you have an opinion on that too i would be interested. im not going to start a debate, and i dont have enough info to give a solid answer.. all i know is that the bible says we are chosen (Eph. 1:4) and that only by his grace that we have been saved (eph 2:8) but also says he wants everyone to come to a knowledge of him in 1 tim 2:4. but anyway. that is just a few things that i have been learning and talking about lately.

i know all i do is talk about God in this thing, but it is hard for me not to. i think that, for me, it is honestly the only thing worth writing about since i want that to consume all parts of my life. this includes fun too! aka living with mandy, lori leigh and charmaine. welcome to our lives: watching boy meets world and full house (to learn our "lesson" of the day) all the time, taco nights, your mama jokes, triple-mooning charmaine because she hates it, taking stupid pictures with our disposable camera, leg warmers, running every, err..every other, er..sometimes, breaking out into disney/oldies/any song while cooking or really while doing anything, me and ll being late a lot and charmaine, well charmaine is always early haha.. and it goes on and on. so excited that we all get along and have TONS of fun. it makes my life good.

i also am SO psyched about the 2 small groups im in with prince and campus outreach, and the fact that the prayer hub for athens is coming up on nov. 1...God is so good and i know he will bring people to pray for our campus. i was at north campus field where the gathering will be, and this verse jumped out

the plans of the lord stand firm forever,
the purposes of his heart through all generations
ps 33:11

how cool is that? the purposes of HIS heart through ALL generations...i really want him to be sovereign on this campus. i really want people to pray, because prayer is powerful (because HE is powerful) and it changes things. it changes people. ok, enough plugging the prayer hub. not like anyone who reads this even goes to uga. haha. but really it is always on my heart so pray for your campus no matter where you go.

speaking of other places, i miss lville and my family and those who might as well be my family like kr and jack and aaron and kimberly and their kids of course. i am comin home soon. maybe next weekend i will skip tenn/ga game...i miss it that bad! and if you leave me a comment please leave me more than a short one to this paragraph..tell me about how you are doing, if i can pray for you in any specific way, whatever. please. that would be awesome. ok it is late, and i have to wake up at like 645..get excited! yayuh.

peace out

oh the things i should be doing... [Sep. 9th, 2004|11:04 pm]
shmayns10_40
[mood |lovedloved]
[music |lori leighs random mix that was alreading playing]

lets just recount what i SHOULD be doing...reading and writing a history reaction paper due every friday, but thats ok..i always do them at midnight on thursday night...or i could be writing a journal entry for spanish--yeah behind in that too.. or i could be emailing the ba-jillion people i need to email. but that is ok. im feeling ok about that. anyway, it has been quite a while, and i dont really know why--i have been reading everyone elses but even that has been few and far between. it could be beause my computer doesnt have internet STILL. so yet again i am in lori leighs room on her computer like i am every day. she probably is just used to seeing me her every single time she walks in. but on to things of substance.

last i wrote, i was really annoyed and in a hard place when it came to younglife...but i am not stressed about it any more because..duh duh duuuun..im no longer a leader. man it was a hard decision--i seriously labored over it in prayer, and labored is a good word because it really drained me, but it was such a good time with God! he showed me that i have to do what he is telling me to, no matter what. and that is hard, and it has been hard because i am a people-pleaser who is trying to turn into a God-pleaser. i was already anticipating what other people would say about me, or whatever the case may be, but it was just me and my pride and once i really listened to what God was trying to tell me all along, it was cool and i have such a peace about it. i mean, he is going to glorify himself through the ministry anyway with or without me there, but it is more a question of where to i glorify him the most?? so as of now i am involved mostly with prince avenue baptist, but also a little with campus outreach. and i am also working on a prayer gathering at uga--based off the student nexus at 268generation.com...i am SO excited about that! it is going to be on monday, november 1 at 7 am-the national day of prayer. yay! my goal is to bring all the ministries and get them all involved. what an exciting time for all the christians to really pray over the campus! i am so psyched if you couldnt tell.

other than that, it has been hard. hard to adjust to real life (aka athens as opposed to slovakia) and not hard in the sense that i knew it was hard, but hard in the sense that there was a gradual desensitization to Gods spirit and prayer and things that i was so accustomed to doing because it literally was every moment of my life this summer. i was baby-ed with awesome spiritual conversation all the time and people daily asking me how i was doing. which none of it i regret or resent, it is just something i knew would happen when i got back but even with knowing, it is something i fell into. and even knowing that and asking God to bring it on and test me (which, by the way, dont ask God to test you if you dont want to be tested! haha no really..), when it did happen and i was in a desert if you will, i would turn away--not away from my relationship with God but almost an unconscious (but still conscious...dont you love how we like to explain it away?) complacency. but wait...it doesnt end there--do you know why? because it NEVER ends there! that is the good news. i love in matt redmonds song- blessed be your name-because it talks about blessed be the name of the Lord when all is good and when you are in a desert place..but the line that really sticks out for me is this:

"God you give and take away,
you give and take away,
but my heart will choose to say,
Lord blessed be your name."

my heart will CHOOSE to say. man, what a statement. we are not always going to "feel" God. i think it is an important part and definitely i feel God a lot and thats important, but when im having a bad day or i have a crappy attitude or whatever, my desire is to be faithful. to be joyous. and that is something i struggle with, im not gonna lie. but it something that brings me joy even in searching for it. and over all of this God shows me his providence and that he is totally capable and in control. i like to hold on tightly to things. but even in this choice that i have, there is His grace that says--this is enough for you and it is only in my grace that you can be faithful anyway. hm...that is a big thing to wrap your mind around. im sorry if you read this thinking that i would be talking about those poncho sweaters again. its just that im realizing more and more, and God is telling me more and more (probably more of the second one and the first one is because of the second) what is important in life. i love having fun, i love having friends, i love having roommates--i love taco night and waffle thursdays and mooning mandy (one of my roommates), and i love "doing" stuff for God and small group and middle and high school kids and making signs for kids i dont even know who run crosscountry, and listening to great sermons--but over all that is christ. he is the core. lord help me live a life with no regret. a life that is in itself a testimony to you. because in the end--and there is an end--there is jesus, and he is the way, the truth, the light--and he takes everything on me that is jagged and crappy and rough and dirty and makes it all beautiful--because he is life.

yay for sermons aka livejournals...next time i will try to be more shallow. haha jk...but really that makes me so excited. next time i will tackle the issue of wonder...on my friend jonas's livejournal he wrote about it and it really made me think..i think we have lost our wonder. but that is for another time, another place, and when i have another paper due in 9 hours! yayuh. yall i love you and will talk to you soon. dont hate because i write novels in my lj...

'cause i got nothin of my own to give to you
but this light that shines on me
shines on you
and makes everything beautiful
again

peace, love, and go dawgs (jk..but i did go to my first uga game sat!! more lata!)

still a war eagle
