Crazy week, crazy weekend

It's been an insane week. Between College and Careers starting up again for the fall, my courseload and work I haven't had a whole lot of extra time. However that has taught me to be more efficient with the time I do find in between and I have made some progress on a few things I've been working on...

Website updates
The appearance of the MAD website was getting old, so I changed some stuff up. Added new photos. Fixed the station listings to ensure accuracy. Added links. Take a look at

Room changes
A few months ago I changed up some stuff in my room, added an extra cupboard for storage, etc. Well this weekend I finished stage one of the decorating process. Nothing fancy though. Added a few framed photos to the walls. Put up more bumper-stickers in my ever growing collection (long story). And finally went through a stack of papers that has been building up for way too long. Good to see some progress.

Gym Membership
Before my surgery last October I was a 5 time a week gym goer, so I'd be lying if I said that hasn't be a routine that I've missed. I wanted to join up again in June when I was given the all clear, but couldn't afford it. Well, thankfully the Lord has provided me with the money (actually he has provided me with someone who wanted to pay for my membership- score!) so this week I started up again.

The gym is in a building close to my house that actually used to be a catholic church. Even though it's kind of sad that the church closed, the gym did an amazing job restoring it- they even left in the stained glassed windows. Beautiful.

College and Careers
Well C&C started up again this week for the new school year. It was great to see everyone again and to have a chance to re-connect after the summer. This week to kick things off, I lead a study on using the gifts that we have been given, whether that is time, money, our abilities, etc. It's funny because I had a completely different study prepared, but on Tuesday night I really felt that it wasn't the study I was supposed to be doing. So at the last minute I scrambled to put together something new that God had laid on my heart and it was amazing how God used the message to speak to me and the others there. He is so good!

A quote to leave you with:

"Just do whatever Jesus calls you to do the moment it is clear to you. Do not procrastinate; do not hesitate; do not deviate from whatever course of action He calls you to." Erwin McManus

That was an awesome quote from Erwin McManus. Which book of his did you take it from?

That one comes from "The Barbarian Way"
