J-E-S-U-S!!!

Your love is extravagant.
Your friendship, it is intimate.
I feel like moving to the rhythm of Your grace.
Your fragrance is intoxicated in our secret place.
Your love is extravagant.

Spread wide in the arms of Christ
is a love that conquers sin.
No greater love have I ever known,
You consider me a friend.
You've captured my heart again.


I've had that song stuck in my head since before Search this past weekend! Now you can all get it stuck in yours... if you know it :P

Oh, and I heard this really cool Bible verse today.
"the LORD will fight for you, you need only be still." Ex. 14:14

Word of the day: well, it's actually a phrase. "Veni Sanctae Spiritus," which means "Come Holy Spirit" (or at least, that's what it means if I spelled everything correctly :S)

Dejavu (I don't know if that is really spelled right...)

So yeah, I was real bored and decided to do this survey too... enjoy!

1. What did you do in 2005 that you’d never done before? Got a speeding ticket, man that wasn't cool at all! I also worked two jobs all summer trying to save up money so that I can go to Rome for spring break, and then I had to spend $79 of that money to pay for the stupid ticket!
2. Did you keep your New Year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year? Like Judit I didn't really make a new years resolution last year, but for this year I haven't decided, which I should do b/c we actually have already started this new year... I probably won't make one... again
3. Did anyone close to you give birth? Not that I can think of... my sister did, but that was in 2004, but it was almost 2005! And I know that some people close to me will be expecting in a while, I had lots of friends get married/engaged this year!
4. Did anyone close to you die? No, Thankfully!!
5. What countries did you visit? None this year, unless like Judit I can now count states as countries... I visited Maryland and I guess North Dakota (I techincally lived there) and I will be visiting Italy... I paid for that trip all in 2005, so ya... :P
6. What would you like to have in 2006 that you lacked in 2005? Stronger faith, closer relationships with friends, and more money -- I hate money but you gotta have it... grrr

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year? Working all summer and saving most of the money for my trip to Rome!
9. What was your biggest failure? Having to drop a class 2 weeks before semester so that it woudln't pull my GPA down. Letting down my parents.
10. Did you suffer illness or injury? well since Judit said no, I feel like I got nothing, but I had my gall bladder out and that wasn't cool.

16. Compare to this time last year, are you:a. happier or sadder? um... overall prob about the same, maybe a little more happy b. thinner or fatter? again, about the same c. Richer or poorer? well... it depends if you are talking about money, to which the answer would be: yet again about the same, I did have lots of monies for a while, but they all went away. But if you ask "theoretically" about life, then i would say richer!
