The Chronicles of The Best They Ever Had

Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. -Acts 2:43-47

The After-Christmas Lull

All these BIG sales going on...and I can't buy anything. I can't buy anything until after my birthday because I don't know what I am getting for my birthday. Besides, I don't have any money, so I guess I have to wait until my birthday anyways in hopes of get few Benjamins--uh, I mean, Georges. Aside from all that, all the Christmas decorations have come down, except for the icicles lights on the front porch because they are still layered with ice from the last bought of wintry weather.

Last year I had a hard time comprehending the fact that I was turning 18. Where did all the time go? Now that I am finally used to 18, I only have 4 days of it left, because as of January 2, 2005, I will be 19 and entering my last year of adolescence. At this rate I will probably faint on my 20th birthday out of sheer mental exhaustion. I am such a twit--well, that's what my mama calls me anyways. She also says that I would lose my butt if it wasn't tied on, but I don't know how it could come untied, so I don't know how seriously to take the woman.

Brooke comes in 3 days. I can't wait! I have all sorts of ideas of things for us to do, like color in my new coloring book, play my guitar and make up songs, giggle in my bed at night, and most of all, I am making Brooke eat only fruit because there are some life experiences she is yet to have. I get to ring in the New Year with someone other than my brother for once!

Merry 4th Day of Christmas

I have the flu

Somehow, I got the flu. Right now I feel alright, but I had a pretty constant fever from Monday night until this morning. I might still have one right now, but I'm not having chills anymore, so whatever. When Mom made the diagnosis, she said "Merry Christmas."

By the by, all these 'jordan's and I have no idea which one you are talking about. Well, some of them I can figure out, but others I am not so sure about. And, sign your posts...I get lost sometimes.

Only 3 days until Christmas!

Wanna help me out?

Should i work at camp this summer? Also, should i change my major? If you could tell me who to marry that would be nice too.



Just got back from the camp reunion. Can't wait for camp now. I miss all of you so much already. I'm sorry Jordan, I cannot come to your house this weekend. Thats about all for the moment. I'm done with school and so excited

Friday, December 17, 2004


The staff reunion is tomorrow, and I can't go. I have to go to a family function. Sigh. I really miss you kids. :/ Tell everyone that I said hello, Merry Christmas, I love you....and give Steve Smith a pat on the back for me. I will be thinking of you all!

I still haven't gotten a lot of feed back from you guys about whether or not you can come to my house. I know that Stephen can't come, and Luke most likely can't come. And I have some maybes from some of you. I need a number in the next week, so if you guys could post here, or email me ( or or IM me, that would be fantastic. I just need to know, so I know what to tell my parents.

And Allen, if that was you that posted on my post about 'partay at my place'--if it helps any, Allison and Amy Bailey might be coming.

By the way, Luke, Aaron Forsyth goes to's a big place but I wonder if Heather Ray has met him? How cool (although unlikely) that would be.

love you kids lots
Jordan M


SO, yesterday i went up to visit the old school of science and math. I dont really care about visiting there that much, but this was for Imago Dei so thats different. PLUS, the coolest guy i know was there--Aaron Forsyth. None of you know him, but he lead bible study with me last year, and he's the coolest guy i know. So i got to see some cool kids up there, as well as Aaron, the coolest guy i know. Afterwards i went to dinner with the coolest guy i know and his girlfriend, Ashley, and his sister-in-law. I had met Ashley but never hung out with her before, and i must say she is one cool girl. I think they should both transfer to State so i can hang out with them more. But its crazy--they've been dating since like 8th or 9th grade. They're both very godly folk and have a good relationship and plan on marriage. ANYWHO, the coolest guy i know told me that there is a free supertones concert in greensboro sunday night. This detail aroused great excitement, only to be shot down when my parents told me i needed somebody to drive there with. I havent really looked too hard yet, but i dont know if i'm gonna be able to find anyone. I could ask my brother, but that bum's still asleep. I dont know if he'd really wanna go, but i guess i shall find out. I was gonna make you go with me Petra, but i think you're still in school. I think you should come Stephen, you dont have anything to do. Jordan too, both of ya. And Brooke. You guys can meet the coolest guy i know (which says a lot about a guy, considering i can place him above a pinnacle man such as myself).

4 more days

4 more days until staff reunion. Can't be more excited. Other than that, I'm basically done in all of my classes other than physics. I will be more than overjoyed next monday when I am done with that exam. It may result in several different types of dances. In response to earlier comments on the journal I wrote, basically what im doing lately is trying to make my faith more personal to myself. It seems almost learned, and I want it to be deeper. If this doesn't make sense, I dont really know how to define it...its just something that is happening to me. However, it is moving me to great things. My life has made some amazing changes in the last few weeks.

party at my place

Attention members of this website:

New Year's weekend (Friday, 12/31/04 to Sunday 1/2/05) is open for a partay for my birthday. You can come one night or both. If you come on Friday, then we can watch Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year! It will be a change from every other New Year's of my life because I have always watched it with my brother.

Please let me know ASAP. You hear that? ASAP. ;)

We're Better Than You

As of 9:30 AM this morning, Luke and Jordan M are better than you. They finished their last exams of the semester, and have no school for 1 month. Take that. They win. You don't. Deal with it. Happy Holidays, losers.

Thursday, December 09, 2004


So yesterday was one of the most excellent days ever. Not only did I get to celebrate a victory over calculus 2 (ok, so it took two tries to beat it...), I was offered a job as an RA!

I applied about a month ago for a spring position, and I interviewed in a dorm on the other side of campus, but I didn't get the job. I would have taken it if I had gotten it, but when I found out that I didn't get it, I was actually quite relieved. I didn't have to move all my stuff home over Christmas break and then move it back in January...I didn't have to get used to a new dorm and completely new people...and most importantly I didn't have to leave my suite. I'm really close to the girls in my suite--God really blessed me with a great living situation. They are really strong Christian girls and it's so great to have that support. That was about 3 or 4 weeks ago.

WELL, two days ago, I got a voicemail saying that the RD wanted to ask me about my application for the fall (I had requested to keep my application open for Fall 2005). I thought that maybe there was something wrong with my application or something. The next day, before I could get up with the guy, my RA (who lives in my suite) came in my room to give something back to me and then proceeded to tell me that she won't be back next semester as an RA and that the RD who had called me was going to offer me her job!!!!! As in, I am only moving over one room, staying in the same suite, with the same girls. I will have a room to myself, which is actually bigger than the room I am in right now with a roommate. I had a little mini interview about an hour ago with the RD over the phone, just to go through the formality of it, but he is putting the contract together right now for me to pick up this afternoon and fill out and return before I go home for break. AHH! it's so great. My parents are excited because I already have a scholarship covering tuition, and now as compensation for the RA position, I have free room and board (meal plan). Yes, kids, that equals a free ride plus a stipend of about $600 for the semester (which will cover my books if need be). Of course, I have to work--I will have to be on duty, work at the 24-hr desk, stay later on breaks and come back earlier from breaks. But hey, it's worth it.

God really surprises me. This was out of the blue, and man, he is so unfair sometimes (but it's a good unfair). God really blessed me with this. Who woulda thunk it?

woot woot

So I checked my grades last night to see if anything had been been posted by my professors. The only grade that is up right now is calculus--I almost had trouble going to sleep last night!!!! Guess who got a 99 on the final exam and an A+ in the class. WOOT WOOT. I just finished my psychology exam about half an hour ago, so that means only 1 more exam left! Writing essays Friday morning doesn't sound like much fun to me, but hey, it's all I have left to do before I am free for the semester.

Hope you kids are having a great week.

GAH plus questions

First I must comment by saying "GAHHH" physics teacher is about to drive me up a wall...if it werent for the fact that I have 9 days left...i think i might die. But after that fact, I have a couple questions for you guys. We were reading paradise lost in english and it arroused some spiritual questions for me - maybe you guys could answer them (as you are all-knowing)

1) If God knows everything in advance, and knows that we will not use our free-will to choose his path, why would he create people to give into corruption?

2) God must have known the devil was going to rebel, why didn't he confront the devil before the devil solidified his plans?

3) This seems sorta blasphemous, and im sorta embarrassed to put it in here...but why did God make it so we must worship, almost like a tyranny, instead of putting us on "friends" terms? I know this seems like a childish and weird question...and im not searching for the answer, like "he is greater"...or "he is our friend" something more...but i dont know what (dont quite understand this myself, but it came up in my head)

4) It seems like the devil wasn't that evil, it seems like he just wanted power...much like any other human (not saying I would worship him)...but in the bible does it portray his personality as the ultimate evil? (I know the true evil comes in his corrupting everybody else...dont really know why im asking this question)

5) Somewhere in the bible it says that the lord will not give you what you cannot handle, but then why do we have christians who convert during hard circumstances?

I know some of these may seem childish, or blasphemous. But they are not meant to be that way...just curiousities that were aroused in my heart, and i really want answers. So, if you could try to answer, I would be very greatful. Lately, I am really trying to solidify my faith, and I am trying to work out all the "kinks" in order to get there.

The Chronicles of The Best They Ever Had

ACCEPTED!!!! WOOT!!! Yea it isn't hard to get into, but not only did I get in, but I was accepted into the honors program as well!! Good stuff I say chaps and chapases. Alrighty ttyl.

When God Answers

Part of growing up in Christ is overcoming one hindrance to being more Christlike after another...and another....

Well, I overcame the hindrance of being shy about sharing my faith and sharing the Good News. I have become very outspoken about it--not just to my friends that I know are Christians, but to those that I know are not Christians also. It's a big hurdle that I jumped, and it has made me a lot more solid in what I believe and a lot more knowledgeable about what I believe. Lots of praise to the Big Guy.

BUT in the process of become more outspoken, I have become self-righteous. Jesus had the harshest words for those that were self-righteous. Me being self-righteous means that I am not loving the people around me. I am so eager to tell everyone that Jesus is right and that they are not living right, that I have bypassed one of Jesus' biggest commandments: Love your neighbor. So I went to God, and prayed about it--I was so ashamed that all along I thought that I had become more Christlike, that I had come just an inch closer to the goal, when really, I slid a full 2 feet back.

God answered with one word: Objectivity. What a random word, I know, but it applies to well to me. Objectivity is defined as "the state or quality of being objective (uninfluenced by emotions or personal prejudices)." Just think, if we left behind all our personal prejudices, then we could really do some loving of our neighbors. It's hard to be self-righteous when you leave all your personal prejudices.

Jesus said, "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." John 13:34-35

Did anyone see that movie last night called "The Five People you Meet in Heaven"?
What'd you think about it? I thought it was many beliefs put together, and there were things I agreed with and some I didn't agree with but all in al it was a decent movie. Let me know.

CLASSES ARE OVER FOR THE SEMESTER!!! I have 3 finals next week: Calc 2 (Monday), Psychology (Wednesday), and Contemporary World Lit (Friday). Then it's home for my mom's and brother's birthdays on the 10th. Second semester starts January 10th--that means a month at home. So much is going on during that month! Tyler is turning 17, Mom is turning...young, my parents celebrate 23 years together, Dad's silly Christmas Eve Eve (yes, December 23rd) presents, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at my Grandparents' house, New Year's, MY 19th BIRTHDAY (think 9 Ladies Dancing)....and hopefully some hang time with my camp buddies (it's a work in progress!).

Oh! and the countdown is on to Spring Break: 92 days til LONDON!

And on a completely different topic, I have been revisiting the Audio Adrenaline cds the last few days. I hadn't listened to the fellas in a while, and man, it was like a rediscovery of just how good their lyrics are. Por ejemplo:
Just like Peter I want to go farther
tread on the sea and walk on the water
step where he steps and go where he goes
side by side when the sea billows roll
I'll be alright when the wind comes
I'll be alright when the waves come crashing
I'm not afraid for this is my Father's world
("Walk On Water", from their album Bloom)

And, if you want to know just how old school they are, go to and watch their music videos. It's a good time, I promise, especially when you watch "Big House." It is very obvious that it was the early 90s.

Have a great weekend

Alrighty, been to the campus loved it. Know I can do good there. Now waiting for answer. Onsite admissions in a few days. Don't know why I'm worrying I should get into ECU without trouble, I mean Jordan did...J/K.. Bid thing is though is big scholarship come on Teaching Fellows! Talk to you guys later.

Dan Rather is crazy and insane. This is a story i saw on

'Mystical Kingdom'?
Outgoing CBS News Anchor Dan Rather (search) says he considers CBS a "magical, mystical kingdom — our version of Camelot."
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter conducted last year and reprinted today, Rather also reports an unusual relationship with deceased CBS News legend Edward R. Murrow (search).
Rather says, "Ed Murrow's ghost is here. I've seen him and talked to him on the third floor of this building many times late at night. And I can tell you that he's watching over us."

What in the heck??? I'm glad i never watched his news.
