Today I bought my tickets to go out to see Janice in California for Christmas and New Years. It is going to be an amazing experience, one that I am going to have to be very careful about. But, I am so excited.

This is the most organized childcare I have ever experienced. The lady who runs this is really good at what she does. The kids behavior shows just that too. You run a tight ship, and the kids will respond accordingly (for the most part, there are exceptions of course).
Once the kids' school started, I figured, "Well, since I am out by the airport, I might as well head over there and read my BSF notes for the week." It was a good decision, and I felt closer to Janice while I was going through the notes. I directly relate airplanes with Janice. I get a certain comfort from them now a days. I got to see 2 landings, and 1 take off. Nothing compared to some of the major airports, but for Fort Wayne, I suppose it is not too shabby. The notes were extremely good. I applied so much of them directly to my life, and I love it when the Holy Spirit challengs me. It is a good challenge.
The day ended with me going to the YMCA to work out. I love God, Janice, my Parents, George, and the fact that my car is still running the most today. These are the things that I am most thankful for on this specific day. :-)

Back to the day, the SUN-DAY. There was no actual sun that I can remember. But anyways, Dave Church was good, but it is not growing. What is God doing? I don't know, I am just going to keep doing what I can do though and be consistent. This is Tim. Tim has been coming to Bible Study and he is a real good guy. I was able to talk him into letting me shave his head. . . . Do you like it? He is going to wear his hair like this to school all week. I'm okay with that. :o)

An old man, going a lone highway,
Came at the evening, cold and gray,
To chasm, vast and deep and wide,
Though which was flowing a sullen tide.
The old man crossed in the twilight dim;
The sullen stream had no fears for him;
But he turned when safe on the other side,
And built a bridge to span the tide.
I will update later, but for now just enjoy this poem. . .
"Old man," said a fellow pilgrin near,
"You are wasting strength with building here;
Your journey will end with the ending day;
You never again must pass this way;
You have crossed the chasm, deep and wide--
Why build you thr bridge at the enentide?"
The builder lifted his old gray head:
"Good friend, in the path I have come." he said,
"There followeth after me today
A youth whose feet must pass this way.
This chasm that has been naught to me
To that fair-haired youth may a pit-fall be,
He, too, must cross in the twilight dim;
Good friend, I am building the bridge for him."

I also had a very good conversation with my friend Mike Gann from Arizona. We talked about life and this and that, and Janice, and Kaitlyn (his g/f) and God, and that, and this and I love conversation. I love it a whole lot. More than conversation, well I really like HONESTY! Darn do I like honesty.

I studied Ser & Estar for like 1.5 hours straight at the library. This shouldn't be that hard. WHY IS SPANISH SO HARD FOR ME? I want to learn it, I want to be able to remember things. But, for whatever reason, I can not remember even the simple things. I wish I knew how to study this stuff. Flash cards. . . no. Online quizing. . . no I am running out of ideas. I found this picture today. I really liked it. So, naturally I wanted to share it with you. Enjoy it, hate it, or feel nothing about it. But do please look at it.

But Janice is amazing, and she said she liked BSF pretty good. That excites me a whole lot.
I know God is still in control of Matt's situation. . . .I can't get over this bitterness. I do not have much Grace for the guy. . . . . i'm going to bed.

I had "my" first official YL meeting today. These are always inspirational for me because I know others are struggling through the same issues as me with kids. It is so healthy to be in a community that understands. I find real freedom in that. Just to be able to know and relate to others that are going through the same or similar situations as you is a very power tool to have under your belt.
Tonight's bible study with the guys felt really good. It felt good because I know God is doing a work in them even if they don't see it. It's encouraging to see how they react, the questions they ask, and the mind frame they take. Today was a good day.
I watched Gray's Anatomy with Janice today. This is the first time I've ever watched a full episode. I have to admit, I really liked it. It was hard though, hearing her reactions and not feel the body to react with them. I miss Janice a lot. She's so good to me, her love is real, although I can't physically feel her she makes her love known in special ways. :)

Finally I made it to the library. I read, and read and read for hours. I took notes, made flash cards, and just studied my butt off. Mostly without any large distractions. Janice had a crazy day of school from very early to very late, then work for many many hours. So, I couldn't allow for her to be my distraction (which was good and bad). So I worked, and worked. You would think I got a lot accomplished right? Well, for whatever reason, I don't feel that way.
Wow, ya know what I am thinking? I am thinking that PURITY is a very difficult thing. I mean purity in all things. Purity in spirituality, in my relationship with Janice, in how I view others; think of them, talk to them, treat them. Purity in work in school, in self-esteem. Purity needs to be in all aspects of life, but it is very difficult to keep all that in focus at times. I won't stop trying though. Never.
