Interesting Article

A college student is suspended over things on Facebook and the fact that he refused to follow disciplinary action by the school. However, shouldn't there maybe have been a little more grace in the situation? After all, it's a Private Christian Higher Education institution. You'd think we'd maybe behave a little better than this: http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2009/02/calvin_college_expels_student.html.

I have struggled lately with the feeling of being alone in this life. That I no longer have someone to share things with and that no one is left who understands me. how wrong I often am, but it is a daily struggle to get up each day when your closest friends are far away and you live by yourself and have no one left to get a cup of coffee with on a regular basis.

I wish I didn't feel this way; that just facing the day would be okay and that I would start seeing all of the wonderful things that actually do surround me. I am blessed, but it's hard right now. By no means do I want pity, I am not pathetic...just tired of how things are right now.

"Thy Will Be Done"

Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. This is my daily reminder that the outcome in all situations that I should be praying for and asking for is not my own, but in fact is God's. He has a purpose for why things turn out the way they do. I have knots still, but I know that God has a plan for this; for me and for everyone else in this world that I know and do not know.

Can I Has Cat?

I have a cat and his name is Winslow. He's a grey tabby cat tom who's 2 years old and adorable as any cat I've ever seen. He runs my parent's cat a pretty close race, but Boots wins out because she's older and has boots. :-)

He is quite good looking and talkative...love him to death already and I've only had him for a few short days...not even a week!

I'll have to make myself a LOLCAT soon...
