The JLA (Jen, Lou, Art) Visit to Minneapolis

I am almost convinced that I don't want visitors here in Minnesota. It's emotionally easier when I visit over there. I think if anyone I know visits me here it will end with me in tears. I was weeping for Joy when my Jennifer, Lou, and Art left today. I was amazed at the love of God that he would give such great friends. It is such a blessing to laugh like I used to when I was back home. I didn't wash my dishes once because these guys were all over it. I miss them already. I can still hear their voices around here, but it's only in my head. I got home after dropping them off and the room was totally silent. I can't stand that. God used my friends to show me the glory in his Love. In return, I worshiped him all the more!

Anyway, here are some pictures of the homies and our grace-filled weekend:

This was @ the scruptuous Famous Dave's in the Mall of America

Us waiting in the front of the line for the doors of the conference to open.

Walking around the city on our Lunch break.

(what is Art looking at?)

On Sunday evening we went out and watched an awesome concert at the Varsity Theater

At the conference, we also saw Pastor Alex and Tita Carol! That was blessing too because I don't think that I have seen them for the past year or so. Anyway, all this to say I had a great time this weekend.

TBI classes

I am back in the groove of school again but these classes are super intense. I love how much I am learning right now. God is much more glorious that I can imagine! I have a pretty wild imagination but God is Super Duper Amazing!!! I believe the angels call it Holy, Holy Holy! He is in a category of his own. I am not a great reader or a fast reader but the richness of what I am reading makes me want to read all day long. I understand why these scholars do it now. To know God more. To know the word more is the aim of my life. Please brothers and sisters, seek God in the Word knowing that is the all-satisfying mission in life.

John Wesley said this way: "I have thought I am a creature of a day, passing through life as an arrow through the air. I am a spirit come from God, and returning to God, just hovering over the great gulf, till a few moments hence, I am no more seen; I drop into an unchangeable eternity! I want to know one thing-the way to heaven, how to land safe on that happy shore. God himself has condescended to teach the way; for this very end he came from heaven. He has written it down in a book. O give me that Book at any price, give me the book of God."
