playing on repeat...

Joe got this for me and it is such a great CD... very chill and, I find, good for studying... which I need to do more of now, so goodbye!

i'm not sure...

but, I think this is what it's all about...

I got a chance to go with a small group of folks from ULM to a children's home last week, and these are the pictures from that visit.

I feel selfish almost every time I go there, just because of how much I get from being around those kids. These sweet girls give of their love so freely and have so much of it to give, despite what I can only imagine they've been through...
Thank you God for bringing joy to our lives, no matter what.

the shack..

is a good book... I'm not quite through reading it, but today I read this and thought it was so good!! At this point in the story God (as portrayed by a 'large beaming African American woman' who goes by Papa)  is talking to a man named Mack and Papa says:

"All I want from you is to trust me with what little you can, and grow in loving people around you with the same love I share with you. It's not your job to change them, or to convince them. You are free to love without an agenda."

just listen...

I came across this video today (while I should have been studying)... the pictures are kind of strange, but it is one of my favorite songs, sung by one of my favorite singers, Sufjan Stevens...

surprise visits to BR..

Mom and I drove down to Baton Rouge yesterday because my little brother broke his scaphoid bone in his wrist last week.. in a bike accident... this bone needed surgery to fix, so he had the surgery today. It went great, and he's doing good now. And though I'm not happy about Mike's misfortune, I love getting to hang out with him and sweet Bec, and my family.

Mike showed me this really funny 'Smothers Brothers' clip, it's so worth watching!!

I should definitely be studying right now. Tomorrow I have the last of a series of about 7 test/projects that have been my life for the past week and a half... but I'm pretty much out of study gas... Plus I figured out how to make this cool thing called an iMix... these are just a few of my favorite songs right now, and you can sample them, or if you like buy the whole mix... I promise they are all great songs!
Fall break begins at 4 tomorrow... I am so excited I can barely contain myself...
