I had hoped that I would be able to post some pictures today, but sadly my computer is not yet hooked up in my room. I am currently posting from the library, or as the message taped to the monitor says "primarily doing theological research." Not much to report from this end except later today we start a two day silent retreat. AHHHHHHHHHH!
All of you who know me well, know that keeping silent and free from distraction is not my style. I imagine it will be quiet the challenge, no talking, no phone, no electronics, no computer, no music for two days! The world today is filled with so many distractions and so much activity. I can't imagine a moment in my life when it has ever been truly still. I suppose in two days I will be able to. I am little worried I will be like an addict going through withdrawal. In the end I am excited to have a chance to center myself and focus on what is most important, my relationship with God. It is crazy how busy we make ourselves in life. Every day at Trinity seemed to fly by as I ran from place to place, pulling projects together, printing papers, talking with others, hiding from Yrag, talking on two cell phones at once, feeding bellringer, burying bellringer, buying a new bellringer and burying bellringer. I imagine if I asked most of you, you would agree. In fact how fast did this summer fly by? How is the new school year already starting? Wasn't it just yesterday you were a freshmen? Life is crazy like that sometimes, we spend all of our time running and never stop to sit, listen and experience God's presence.
I will see you all in two days!
p.s. I am eager to hear how things are going with all of you (another year at Trinity, moving into College, or returning to college).
