Thought For the Day:
No one enjoys failure. Most of use tend to aviod it if at all possible. We take precautions ranging from having a rigidly formated schedule for the day to avoiding any situation that bears the possiblity of achieving less than success. However, "the focus of the Christian life should be on Christ, not on self-imposed regulations. Our experience of Christ's lordship is dependent on our moment-by-moment attention to His instruction, not on our own regimented schedule."*

*Quote from The Search For Significance by Robert McGee

Here's something to give you a laugh. :)
Saturday nights around 10:30 a group of people get together to set-up for church the following morning. While in the midst of taking a break from duct taping some sound cords to the gym floor, I chose to wing a nearly spent roll of tape at Jamie, Apex's sound guru. Naturally, it was a direct hit. :) This later proved to be a catalyst to my demise. A short while later Jamie in turn flung the roll of duct tape at me,but missined by a foot or so. This was a warning shot...or so he claims. With what I assumed to be Jamie's attempt at retaliation having passed, I went about my merry business. After the cables running beneath the folding chairs were secured I moved on to those running beneath the platform. This hollow platform measures about 3 feet high by 7 feet wide and stands in two halves so the cables can be run between them. While under one half of the platform taping the cords, I began to wonder if Jamie would take it upon himself to close up the platform. Just as I began to entertain this thought, the gap between the platform halves rapidly began to shrink. Before I realized what was happening, I was sitting in a very dark pressboard prison. Thankfully Kristine and Julie came to my rescue. After escaping the void beneath the platform, I discovered not only had Ian, the powerpoint engineer, participated in this act, but had also orchestrated the plot. Debauchery! Nevertheless.....the time will come when both Jamie and Ian are repayed in full. Bwa ha ha!

Cair Paravel is a castle in the mythical country of Narnia, created by C.S. Lewis. It was a place of incredible beauty; likened to "a great star resting on the seashore." When the children Lucy, Edmund, Peter and Susan are crowned there by Aslan, it was a time of celebration for all. What a celebration there will be when we, as children of God, are taken to heaven!

Hoorah! Wright State University was closed today! And what do college students do on a snow day? Why hurl themselves down snow covered hills in everything from laundry baskets to folding chairs, of course!

Thanks to the assistance of Sir Ian my blog is now functional. Henceforth I shall attempt to post on a more regular basis.

Now that I am sitting before my computer screen faced with the decision of what to write, my mind draws a blank. I could relate to you the events surrounding the death of my roomate's iridescent shark or perhaps the thrilling venture from the dorms to church this morning. For the moment I shall leave you to wonder if the death of Bermuda, the shark, was indeed premeditated and exactly how many individuals thought BethAnn and I were legally insane to even consider braving the snowy highway. Upon glancing at the clock, which now reads 1:00 a.m., I have decided to clarify the title of my blog sometime in the near future rather than tonight.

Alas! Tomorrow's classes have yet to be canceled. It is going to be a long day.

Well ladies and gentlemen, my blog is still under some heavy construction at the moment due to the thick layer of dust that lies on any knowledge I once had of HTML editing. Hopefully I shall be able to effectively unearth what I once knew sometime tomorrow evening. Have a lovely day!
