Happy Birthday to me!

I praise God for another year in my life. 26 years old is closer to the big 3-0 than 25. There are years that you don't feel older but I felt 26. I praise God for what he did for me in my 25th year in Christ. I love Jesus more than I did than when I was 24 going to 25. He is a fountain of blessing and pouring out an abundant stream of grace. Everyday there is new grace for me to partake in and I am indebted to Christ for that. How do you repay someone that you owe an eternal amount? You can't! To Christ, I raise my cup and ask for more grace and more blessing because he graciously reward those who seek him. For my 26th year, I will seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness that all of "these" things may be added to me. What are these these things? God knows... and he gives gifts that are good and perfect.

God has blessed me so far with friends out here. It was a good birthday! Here are some shots that I took of the God's blessing in my life:

Johnny and Angie, graciously made me a Pizookie!

Back for the next semester

I am excited for this coming semester. I had a great break in California and gained 10 pounds. I wish I was able to hang out with more people but I was glad to hang out with many of you. Thanks for a great time in Cali and please pray that God will continue to reveal himself to me. Pray that I would be faithful in studying God's word and balance it by not making it a textbook. Pray that I would be changed by the knowledge that he gives me through his word. See you guys in May.
