Sanity!

90+ degrees! It's getting hot. The only airconditioning is in the basement, so we have students and staff sitting in every corner. Some people went tubing today. I stayed back and my friend Ellie and I worked on homework and played Nintendo. There are some days where you just can't do everything.
I got a book this summer from a dear friend of mine called Surrender (by Nancy DeMoss). It and the Biography of Amy Charmichael have been my sanity. I am learning that there is just something about reading that time must be taken for it.
Lamentations 3 continues to come to my mind quite often, especially when repeated in chapel, etc. His mercies are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness! Wow.


"There will likely be a time in our Christian jouneys when, like Jacob, we will wrestle with God all night long. ... But there must eventually come a dawn when we say, "OK, God, You win. ... Not my will but Thine be done."
-Gary Thomas

    I am glad to find out that you have a blog!
    It would be great if you would check out my blog. It isn't very good, but I just started it.
    I hope to stay in touch!
