If a blog falls in the woods and nobody is around…

Hey faithful blog readers (I see you, Mark),

I’m here again. Sometimes I wonder why I took the assignment to write blogs for Grace.  It’s not that I don’t think that this is a cool idea or that it can be used to give a deeper perspective on Grace student’s lives.  I just wonder if it is reaching the eyes of anyone outside of the admissions office. Ha… Okay, in all honesty, that is likely my damaged self-esteem talking there.  I’m a human, people. Anyway… I digress.

The past few weeks have been crazy.  I mean like troop of bears wielding chainsaws and marching into Suriname crazy (It’s a country… I’m quite sure. Thank you, global perspectives).  Amidst finishing a two part final and delivering a speech on ministering to Muslims to finish up that course, I have been running around like a lizard with its tail cut off.  Not as dramatic as the headless chicken, but hey… there’s a place for drama, and it’s not this blog.  It’s on the stage. 

We finally opened All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten on Friday.  What a rush! I absolutely LOVE acting.  It is something that I could honestly see myself doing my life long.  Had I known this, I might have directed my life towards it at a younger age, but God opens doors where He wills.  My digression continues.  This show is so unique, so poignant that I hope everyone gets a chance to see it sometime in their life.  Just go in with an open mind and a heart that is willing to learn.  If you are reading this before the 18, 19 and 20th, you have chances to see it here at Grace on those dates.  And I hope you do. 

If you are still reading this, I have a request of you.  Since you have spent a few minutes hearing about the personal parts of my life, I would hope to burden you with two more.  Pray first for Grace College.  Pray that its students (and prospective students) will have hearts that reflect Christ.  Pray that the men and women of God who are educated here will go forth and do amazing things for God’s glory.  The second that I would ask of you is to pray for me.  Ask that I would hear God and do His will.  I don’t know what direction my life will take after college, and it is unsettling.  But I know that God has something for me to do.  Of this, I am certain.  Thank you so much.  There, that wasn’t too hard, was it? 

See you soon, oh faithful ones.
