Guys I'm super dumbed. My best friend here at Calvin is leaving. Ever since my very first night here on campus we were tight as could be. We just clicked and told each other our whole life story. Unfortunately he partied too much and didn't go to his classes. So now he failed out of school and is flying back to Minnesota on friday. Ugh I'm gonna miss this kid. He had such a good heart.

Well my soccer season is over for this year so now I have to find something else to fill my time. Hopefully I can fill part of it with the Bible because honestly, it got some dust on the cover. I want to find some new non soccer friends too. Don't get me wrong I love my teammates but I don't want them to be my only friends. So I guess my next goal is to open up and spend my nights in the word. College has shown me it would help to have my roots deeper.

So naturally on this cold and rainy day I made some tea and it was delicious. But something was missing...Honey. So I put some honey in and it was even better. Then I got sad because every time I drink tea I think about sitting at Camden's house with Mel and Maddie. And Camden of course but that was implied. I miss my tea buddies

Thanks be to God

Listen to the Lord because he wants you to prosper. Take 5 to 10 minutes after you read this to sit and thank God for being with us even when we aren't there for him. If we seek him even when we don't feel him he's gunna reward us for that. But seriously, even if ur doing homework or something else take time to thank God for loving us and wanting the best for us. Guys God is so good and not one day should go by that we aren't praising him :)

have you ever felt like you were drifting away from God? Have you ever read the screwtape letters? If not its about a demon that tries to pull a guy away from God. The best success he has is when he distracts the guy in really minor ways. It doesnt happen all at once but the devil tries to slowly drag you away from God so once you start to realize whats happening God seems out of reach. Dont let the devil even start to drag you away. Show him what ur made of and if life is dragging you down you must be doing something right.

Im such a dork

So last night I went to my first college party. Of course I didn't drink or anything but seriously, it was a ton of fun. Peer pressure is so over rated, saying no was easier than counting to 3 but I guess thats just me. But I met some sweet people and everyone loved me by the end of the night. I felt really out of place in the beginning but it turned out to be a fun night and a good learning experience.
