Jump Tomorrow

So today was the opposite of lazy. Accomplishments abounded around every corner. Yes, I got up, took a shower, and headed to the library.
Yea, this is where some of the magic (studying) took place. But, what I would like to focus on is the fact that it did in deed take place; studying that is. Yep, I studied till about 6pm. Then I went over to Ryan's house. Twas a good thing. We (Ryan, Nate, and I) chilled for a bit, then eventually headed over to the local Cinema Center where we watched Jump Tomorrow. The three of us didn't really know what to expect. We walked into the Cinema Center not even knowing what was playing, but then saw this sign I read about 6 or 7 sentences from a piece of paper telling about the film, and well we all unanimously knew it was the movie for us. And to make things even better. Apparently on Saturdays movies only cost $2. The movie was really fun. It was a cheesy, awkward love story. It is just one of those independent movie that I just really appreciate. It was really good. But, even better to enjoy with my friends.
A Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon,
Where there is doubt, faith,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grand that I may
not so much seek to be consoled,
as to console;

To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we
It is in pardoning that we are
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

good words to live by, if indeed you truly mean to live by them.. all of them, for everyone...everyone

I truly mean to live by them. . . all of them. BUT, doesn't mean I will. I, just like all humans am weak and selfish. My heart desires to live by all of them, but my flesh is very weak. It is the desire that is important. The most important commandment says to love God, and the second is to love people. I love God with all my heart, but I am not perfect, nor will I ever be. So, it is impossible to love everyone, all the time. Ya know?
