Last night I saw the David Crowder Band for the first time. It was a really cool worship experience. I don't really know how to describe the band personally, but in looking at reviews, other some other person suggested Dave Matthews + Incubus. They added in some pretty funky stuff with a d.j./violinist. However they're described, I'm sold. ;) I picked up their cd Illuminate.
Things are going fairly well for me but I'm extremely busy. The next two weeks look pretty insane:
- 3 exams
- 1 major project (learning new programming language for this one)
- 1 major research paper (very behind in the reading in this class)
- at least three other assignments
which all adds up to two crazy weeks before spring break. Then I'm off to Panama City Beach.
Discipleship group is going pretty well. We had a really large group this past Monday -- 11, I think. I hope we're not getting so big that we're keeping people from talking. It might impact the environment we meet in. We went to Starbuck's before; I'm just not sure how good it is for communication in such a large group, in a place like that. As much as I'd like to go to Coldstone or Starbuck's every week, if we have such a large group, we may have to find a place where it's easier for a large group to talk!
Not the worst problem in the world to have, though, of course. ;)
We as people really struggle with facing reality sometimes. We often find it easier to run from issues in our lives than dealing with them. Then that comes back to haunt both us and those around us.
Maria, happy 5th birthday, tomorrow!
Everyone - Happy Leap Day, tomorrow!
