I have to give thanks to Jesus!
I finished my math yesterday!
I have a few papers to write, and take one more final.
My first year of school will be finished!
I could not have done it without Him!
Praise to my Lord and Savior!
More coming soon.

How do we show love today?
What does it mean to love?
Is it giving a man on the corner with a sign ten-dollars? Is it saying prayers with your child before bedtime?
Could it be a teacher going way above and behond the call of duty to help their student?
Of course the answer is all of the above.
My math professor's name is Dr. Judy Taylor. She teaches my college algebra class.
Patience of a saint this woman.
We speak of Job's patience and how he suffered however, he never had to teach older students how to factor.
She's the only reason I haven't.
Love you Dr. Judy

I have a confession to make.
I have really blown it this year.
Between school, life, and my own recalcitrant nature, I have completely let my recovery fall by the wayside like a hitch-hiker dissapating in the rearview mirror.
Lack of program + not being a part of something greater than myself has left me bailing water from a cardboard boat in the middle of some giant rapids.
My reaction to life in most cases is panic. And I have found myself hiding from me and my God in an attempt to somehow make it right. Of course this does nothing but worsen the problem.
Life is hidden with rocky shoals and I have done nothing less than chunked my paddle overboard. My knuckles seem to be permanently white.
I have finally recognized this and am taking steps (get it "steps") to rectify where I have gone wrong.
Anyone have a tow-rope?
I know who does.

If I close my eyes for a moment I can stir a childhood memory.
Spinning music, an opening song and Speed Racer racing around the track in the venerable Mach Five. Other racers try to take him out but only succeed in flipping themselves over the guard rail and into oblivion.
Speed contended with such enemies as the car acrobatic team, the mammoth car made of gold, and some nasty arabs in the great desert race.
I remember every function and sound effect as if I were watching it right now.
How cool is this? They made it into a movie. Here is a link to the trailer.
This is going to be a good summer to eat a lot of popcorn I think.
Not only do we have the Speed Racer movie to look forward to but: Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, Forbidden City, starring Jackie Chan and Jet Li: Batman-The Dark Knight, Ironman, and last but not least the new Ben Stiller Movie Tropical Thunder.
Escapism seems to be the rule this summer. If we can afford to drive to the theatre.
