The power of Christ compels you

hear it in the stairwell:U2-Joshua Tree

I couldn’t blog this weekend…the server was down every time I tried. So I’m going to make up for it now. Not too many exciting things happened for me this weekend. Friday we saw Last Samurai and, much to my surprise, I liked it. It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed two or so hours of Tom Cruises’ unitooth. So once I stopped staring at the one tooth centered in the top row of his teeth, I was able to sit back and enjoy the Japanese goodness.

And after my 9a.m. final on Saturday (that I aced) I convinced the guys I hung out with that evening to watch The Exorcist! They were all a bit hesitant, not wanting to wet their pants in front of each other. The movie never ceases to shock/scare/disgust/intrigue me but it wasn’t until I arrived home that I realized how freaked out I was. I’m walking up to the hotel (aka my apartment building) around 3a.m. and there are no lights on anywhere in the building. I turn my key in the lock of the front door and as I slowly begin to open the door this horrible screeching noise comes from inside-immediately I stop. Now at this point I have two options: one, I can continue to open the door and greet the demon possessed girl I KNOW is waiting for me on the other side of the door or two, I can run screaming until one of my equally creepy neibors comes to my rescue. I picture my neibor Bruce running out of his apartment in his boxers and I continue to open the door. The screeching continues until the door is open about half way and the BOOOOOM! I wasn’t sure what had happened until I got up the nerve to open the door completely and saw the hinge the keeps the door from swinging completely open dangling in front of the doorway. It’s still dangling there. Every time enter or leave my apartment building I dodge it. I only have a few more weeks in The Hotel anyways, I got my NEW KEY for my NEW PLACE last night:) Anyone want to help me move?? Contact me-possible massage compensations involved:)

Oh, and Kristi…the pictures I keep posting, such as this one: Are of Ryan from the band Guster. I like him….a lot…maybe too much:)

Ok, I’ll leave you all with this:

“Handing everything over to Christ does not, of course, mean that you stop trying. To trust Him means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way. Not doing these things in order to be saved, but because He has begun to save you already.”-C.S. Lewis

Everyone have a wonderful Monday and check out Stephen’s site. His self confidence needs the support:) (Kidding Stephen, I do like your site. Especially Joe’s part)
