The Done

Alright folks, I know that a few of you are still engaged heavily in the studies of the final variety, but I just had to jump on my Mountain and scream that I AM DONE!!! Done with papers, presentations, groups, professors, grammar, schedules, 8am’s, morning run’s (well, I’ll keep those), but it is out the window. So, with this in mind, I reflect on what I accomplished. As usually, I feel that I could have done a better job and could have been less distracted. This is the usual, but if I search deeper, I know that I did not include someone who wanted in on my entire semester at Aurora, God.

It was with great amounts of sadness that I reflect and realize that I did not bring Him into the equation NEARLY enough as I should have. My relationship with Him is worth more than any other relationship that I have ever received. This is why I should include Him more in everything I do, walking out the door, pray, driving in the car, pray, walking into class, pray, working on homework, pray. Do this NOT ONLY when you have a test or hard assignment. INCLUDE HIM! This is what I know I should have done better this year.

I can not say enough how excited I am to be done with everything this year had to hold. I want to see you people more often now. Love to all of you and Merry Christmas. See you all soon.

Way to go, Eric! I'm so glad for you. I realize your concern for feeling as though God was not included in your everyday, but It was. Just because you are not praying as regularly as you would like, God is still always with you. Always in your everything. As George Lucas once said vicariously through a character in one of the greatest films ever made, "It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together." They just had the wrong name for the correct concept.

Thanks for that Dave. I like that connection with Star Wars, ha. I miss you. I hope you have a nice break in OH. What are your plans?
