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

can't i'm posting

It's currently well after midnight and i gotta get up at 8 tomorrow morning to drive to ncssm. Which is exciting cause i get to present king's park for their orientation, but that does not change the fact that i was so tired two and a half hours ago that i wanted to pass out in the middle of having a bunch of company at our house, yet i am still awake and facing very little sleep. I was so tired, but i started reading this extremely intriguing book that i finally got myself to put down a few minutes ago. But right as i tried to go to sleep i got a knock on the window from the RAs on duty asking me to check out a room in my suite that had obviously had alcohol. I checked it even though there really wasnt anything i could do since they had everything well hidden by that point. Really i probably shoulda just straight up asked them to hand the alcohol over, but oh well...i'll get them next time.
But here i am, now quite awake and setting myself up to be good and tired for my brother's wedding tomorrow. Matt and Katie are finally getting married tomorrow, after nearly seven years of dating. This is pretty awesome and i am glad for them and have enjoyed the festivities and time with my family, including some who flew in from nebraska and my brother and family from louisiana.
And oh yeah....about that book... I was in the brickyard today handing out drinks and info cards for ENCM so we could get some advertising out there. We saw a guy on the other side of the brickyard sit down with a suitecase and take out some books to hand to people. He was also an older gentleman with a small dog running around freely, so this man certainly intrigued us. We figured it was a good chance that he was handing out bibles or something, so i went over with a soda to give to him and see what he was doing. It turns out that he was a christian who was handing out bibles and other christian books, so i sat down and gave him the drink and talked to him for a while. His name was Peter and he was definitely a cool dude. He told me that he had demonic struggles his entire life until he was 50 years old, when he met a man who was able to help him find deliverance from those oppressions. Part of what he learned about deliverance came from one of the books he gave me called "Pigs in the Parlor". He also gave me a book called "Prison to Praise", which is the life story of a man who spent much of his life in the military and found Christ and great freedom through praise. His story is truly amazing, which is why i stayed up an extra hour and a half reading it before the crazy alcohol disturbance. Anyways, I really enjoyed meeting Peter and hope that he will be on campus again. You guys should all read "Prison to Praise" too. It's really beginning to stir up a challenge in faith for me. I hope you all are doing well, lemme know what's goin' on with ya!

I neglected to include this earlier when talking about the wedding...but, although this is something that girls typically care more about, i must admit that when it comes to wearing a tuxedo, i enjoy dressing up. What can i say? I just look good...
