Chain emails

I got a chain email from someone from my church the other day, and I've been thinking about it for about three days. The email was about how all of these famous people said that they didn't need Jesus and they died in horrible ways. I think that people take the famous too seriously as it is already, so I don't need some deaths of these people to prove the power of God. Secondly, I am much more worried about the 2/3rds of people in Northwest Georgia who are unchurched and going to Hell, horrible death or not. The final thing that is peeving me about this email is that at the end of it, of course there was the prerequisite "send to X people and you'll receive a miracle in three days!" This is what probably got me most worked up. It makes people who are not necessarily strong in their faith yet depend on something other than God. It's like, "If I send this to eight people, God has to send me money!" The emphasis needs to be on prayer to God rather than the dependence of an outside source. (If we wanted that, we'd all still be Catholic, right?)

Anyway, had to get that out of my head...more later.



Don't you have it when you have to wait for something? I don't mean Christmas this time. I took my two finals this week on Monday and Wednesday. Usually, it takes my professors about a day to put my grades in for posting. This semester, though, it took until sometime this afternoon! I was on pins and needles waiting for my grades, especially for my American Philosophy class since it is so paramount to my graduating in May (it's one of the main requirements for American History majors). I didn't really doubt that I would make anything below a B in my other class, African-American Music, but I ended up with an A! With American Philosophy, I constantly received Cs or Ds on pretty much everything save one paper. I ended up getting a B in the class. I still am not sure how I didn't pull a C, but I'm not complaining!

Another thing that happened is that I worked all three graduation ceremonies this year. Since I'm working in Events right now, I get the joy of working any of these major events until May. Amazingly enough, things went off without a hitch (other than the marshal almost forgetting the mace for the first ceremony!). Nothing like working 15 hours in two days (being that one was a 10 hour day, and we didn't get home until 9:30.

Tonight Tasha and I are going back down to Kennesaw to go to the Development Christmas party...I'm looking forward to this weekend so I can relax a bit.

More later! :D
