It's funny how life works out sometimes. For instance, with all the trouble that I've been having with girls and stuff, I just started talking to two this weekend and it's great. I mean sure, I just started talking with them, but they already want to go out, which is really cool.

I guess the best thing learned from this is that if God doesn't seem like He's working right now, it may be because he is storing up something really good for you in the future. I know it's hard to wait, and I'm sure I'll grumble again when things aren't going good again, but I think I will have a deeper understanding of why things happen and that they will get better. Wow. Thank you God for your wonderful gift of life and your merciful grace that keeps me with you at all times, no matter what I do.

You know, it's funny. I went back and read the few past postings that I put on here and it's quite interesting. Some of the postings are just like "I wrote that??" and others are like, yeah, I remember feeling that. It's interesting to watch the curve of what was going on in my life at the time. At some points, it was just crazy and at others, it was totally awesome. It is funny sometimes how God uses the bad in life to exploit the good things He brings. I don't know how to explain it, but from the bad comes good somehow down the road, which is what we must look for if we are to be happy. However hard it may be, we have to look for that. That is the joy we have. That is God's grace.

It has been a really long time since I posed here and it seems as if I was kinda mad last time and as I remember, I was. But it has been so cool what God has shown me through the many things that I have come through and yet he continues to teach me every day.

For example, yesterday I learned the peace that surpasses all understanding. Something bad had happened with one of my friends... well, actually two of them were involved. I was literally livid about it. I almost couldn't see straight. Well, the next day I woke up and I was a little shaken still, but not too bad. And by the end of that night, I felt at peace. I don't know why. Nothing had really changed, but I felt better. Perhaps it was just me playing it out in my mind, but I'm pretty sure that God had to do a lot with it. The feeling was awesome.

Well, today things are going good. I have quite a lot of work to do, but that's OK. When do I not have a lot of work to do? I like my job. It's fun.

Well, tonight, I'm going out with friends and probably playing D&D tonight. Who knows exactly, though. We always just do what we want to do, which is fine with me because I'm up for that spontaneous stuff. Well, I'd love to put some more stuff here, but I do have to get back to work. Hopefully, I will post again soon!
