happy thursday

1. It's RUSH WEEK.

2. I'm not in charge!

I wonder about 67 times a day how Em and I did this last year; if I had to do it today, I don't think I could. I have no explanation except that God makes everything beautiful in its own time (Ecclesiastes 3:11). Needless to say, these next couple of days are busy ones. I'm excited for Bid Day but I'm really excited for next week, when the fall celebration will really kick in full swing.

In other news, enjoy this "Hey Jude" flowchart. Whoever made this is a genius.

Longer letter later. (Did anyone else read that book when we were in middle school??)

do you remember...

Also. September is an excellent month, and the roommates and I are celebrating as often as possible by firing up Katherine's karaoke machine and dancing around the kitchen to the following. September 21 itself is Wednesday night, start the countdown!

Enjoy. :)

a little bit of this, a little bit of that

The past few weeks have been ones for the books, which means that this next week needs to be one in the books. In case any of you were wondering, Senioritis is real. It is interesting balancing classes, law school applications, thesis, and work when it’s starting to be that good fall weather and I just want to hang out with friends from morning until night. So much of this semester has been beautiful so far; here are some highlights in no particular order.

Labor Day was an incredible blessing even though the long weekend was filled with rain from the tropical storm in the Gulf. You know what else was filled with rain? The Brick House kitchen cabinets...

Dave Barnes was in Starkville the other Tuesday night, which meant I was in Starkville the other Tuesday night. Left Oxford at 5:30, got back at 2, had a Spanish test the next morning at 10. Slightly chaotic and sleep-depriving, but Dave Barnes was amazing live. All of this reaffirms my growing conviction that live music, while almost never convenient, is almost always worth it.

I have already caved and skipped my first class. The weather was so perfect and Anna and I got to have Grove time and it was totally a good decision even though it was only the third week of school and most people try to hold out a little longer than that...whatever. Carpe diem.

Various conversations (most of them late-night, of course) throughout the past weeks have made me realize more and more fully that the group of friends that I have been blessed with are going to change the world, and that is awesome.

College is the greatest.

throne room

Last February I had the privilege to attend Statewide and worship with Kristian Stanfill for an entire weekend. Last Thursday, as a part of the Ole Miss Wesley Foundation, I had the privilege to worship with him here on campus. Being a Wesley Foundation intern is awesome for countless reasons, one of which is the time I got to spend meeting and hanging out with Kristian and Matt and Joe and Tim. These guys are amazing. They are not "worship leaders" in title alone; they truly do lead worship. It's not about them, and they make that so obvious in every word they speak or sing.

One of my favorite things about Kristian from Statewide was the Scripture that he shared in between his music, and he brought a message of truth again Thursday night. He speaks from the Word, and it is so powerful! This time he shared Psalm 3, and I've been going over the verses in my head constantly ever since then. I love Kristian and his band, and I say all of this not to bring praise to them (I have a feeling they'd never go for that...) but to bring praise to the God to whom they sing. It's always hard to adequately describe such beautiful worship experiences, but the best description I've heard so far goes to my friend who said he felt as if he was physically in the throne room. I think that pretty much sums it up!

One of the best parts about all of this? They're coming back! Passion is coming to 12 college campuses across the country this fall for a special University Tour, and Ole Miss is one of those lucky schools! Get your ticket here and do it quickly. I am not sure what Thursday October 6 holds for us, but I know it is going to be amazing so go ahead and get ready! God is transforming my generation; I believe that with all of my heart, and I cannot wait to see what is in store for us.
