man…i don’t even know where to begin. there’s been LOTS of hurricane katrina coverage on television, and quite honestly…the damage there is heartbreaking. i honestly could not imagine losing EVERYTHING…including my family and/or friends in the span of a few hours. there have been lots of issues dealing with the whole situation…concerns about how the media has portrayed blacks and how long it has taken the federal government to administer aid, and if that is a racist issue too. while i have a lot of my own thoughts on this…and i do feel like some valid concerns have been brought up, i feel that there’s no time to bicker over the politics of the situation. bottom line is- the hurricane katrina victims need help NOW…and people need to come together and help out our fellow americans. hopefully i can join the efforts and head down to louisiana and/or mississippi next week, or at least participate in some local efforts.

on another note, school is going well…i turned in my first assignment on monday night and i have my first test on tuesday. i’m a little nervous about it, but i’m claiming the victory on it in JESUS name. so i’m studying to show myself approved (that 2 timothy 2:15)…and…i’ve got an interview TOMORROW for this really tight assistantship on campus. i’m so excited! thank GOD for the opportunity

more and more i’m realizing that you’ve got to be careful who you let into your life and the effect that can have. sometimes being by yourself is good (i’ve realized this over the past few weeks of being in athens)…and at the same time it’s good to have someone there that cares for you and looks out for you. praise GOD for my friends who have been there for me and have been praying for me. at any rate, i’m excited about the things that are to come…

quotes that i’m feeling…courtesy of some friends:

“You’re still a mystery
But there’s something so easy
How you’re sweet to me
I feel completed
Like you’re
Something I needed
For this heart…of…mine”
~peter salett (thanks elizabeth!)

“my prayers are answered, i’m just waiting on the LORD”
