I did indeed survive the semester.
And my grades for the most part were good, all except my Calculus class. I could have done fine in there had it not been for the other classes. Specifically, my NETWORKING class.
It's nice to be relaxing at home. It has rained for ... 3 days straight it seems. I have unpacked my stuff, read, and played guitar. And slept a whole lot.
I've starting reading What's So Amazing about Grace by Philip Yancey. It wasn't really on my reading lists. I read a few of his books before and really liked them, so I did hope to read this book at some point, but it definitely wasn't a priority. However, I saw it in a used bookstore so I bought it and then started reading it. It's been a good read so far. "The atrocious math of grace" -- an interesting topic. Neat to see him talk about how unfair grace is. It's got me thinking about applications of grace in my life. What about forgiving those who don't ask for forgiveness? Can I forgive, and still be hurt, and not trust someone? I feel like I can. Is it elitist for me to tell someone I forgive them, when they haven't asked? Would that get us anywhere?
I do want to go back and finish Celebration of Discipline. Also, I want to take another look at the section on prayer. After discussions with Wes (http://engineer-ambassador.blogspot.com) and Ashlee (http://atoti.blogspot.com) I'm "re-realizing" that I need to be more disciplined about this.
Is it a bad thing when you go to the doctor's office, and his solution to your illness consists of two things: a knife and duct tape??? That worries me a bit. But I definitely was given that advice.
