[ How's everyone doing out there? Well, I hope. I am playing HEAT this Friday so it would be great if some folks could come out to it. Even if I wasn't DJing it's a great time to just meet with God. Hopefully James will have my business cards done soon.

Sean came over yesterday afternoon; I haven't seen him in ages. It was good to chat.

I need to buy some new shoes. I think when I get some time I am going to go "shoe shopping" with Alyne...it's been a while since we hung out: It'll be good. Besides, I need new shoes anyway. My feet are starting to hurt.

Youth is tonight. I haven't heard anything from Jeremy about it so I guess it's safe to assume that I should bring my equipment as normal. I am really tired tonight, though, and have got a minor head cold. Not fun. Especially when you don't get enough sleep at night! ]

[ " Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. " - Matthew 4:1

Even Jesus was lead into the desert by the Spirit before he could be sent out in the power of the Spirit - that is so comforting... Lord, confirm my convictions and bring me certainty.

[ No time to write the happenings of the past while... sorry :( I really want to though, so hopefully I will get some time in the near future. I am at work right now and am really tired - still feeling a little under the weather. We'll talk soon... ]

[ ... speaking of late nights: I was up until 5:30am last night (this morning) talking with Megan - Casey's sister. How does that happen? Anyway, we had a good, deep conversation. It was worth having to get up at 8:00am this morning for our Scotland trip fundraiser.

Oh yeah, by the way, I forgot to mention I am going on a Scotaland Missions trip this summer with Youth for Christ. We leave July 17th and return August 3rd.

Long day, I am tired, and I'm going to go watch the Basketball Diaries before I pass out... ]

[ I was too tired to write last night. I guess it was the accumulation of late nights, early mornings, and an In Medias Res show!

Stabilo Boss played before IMR instead of after. Now, on it's own that small morsel of fact means next to nothing, however, this was an all ages show - meaning I had youth there that had a curfew (not mentioning any names) - so we had to leave by a certain time that evening. Long story short: we would have seen the whole IMR show and walked for Stabilo - as usual, hehehe - but we ended up seeing a long, drawn out Stabilo show, and walking out on IMR to make curfew. The last song I got was "Annadonia" though, so it was totally worth it - no hard feelings [insert youth member with curfew here].

On a totally related note: IMR's new CD is absolutely beautiful. In fact it is has the album ranking for music that Requiem for a Dream has for film... coming from me that is the top of the chart. Honestly. It has the ability to move me quite emotionally and is very intense. I don't really know how to explain it but I'll put it this way: I had to turn off the CD while I was listening today while driving deliveries because I was getting so emotional I couldn't control myself! I don't know what else to say... it's brilliant and there is something about the lyrics and melodies that hit me even on a spiritual level. I am precariously perplexed... ]

[ I just got home from watching Catch Me If You Can with James, Stephanie, and some other WPBC students. It was a pretty good film, actually. Didn't really know what to expect, but it was worth watching.

Tomorrow is IMR's CD release party! I'll be there... will you? ]

[ Drama was tonight... I didn't really know what to expect, but I guess practice was in order - so that's what we did; or rather, that's what they did. I proceeded to observe.

Very awkward state of consciousness: nebulous consciousness. That brings back memories... Can't put my finger on things, seems too unreal and too surreal. Better stick to truth and consequence. "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

Agape love: love in action, love in deed, love unconditionally.

Keep praying, stay disciplined, remain patient, continue to persevere... I have so much to learn. ]

[ I forgot to mention: I posted 3 photos in the media section that Stephanie took at the In Media Res show at Ethical Addictions in Langley. Check 'em out! ]

[ I saw X2 last night with a bunch of people and it was pretty rad. I have to say, through it all, just as I expected, Nightcrawler was the best! I didn't see the Gambit cameo I read about, all we got was a quick glimpse of his name on a computer screen: Remy LeBeau. I did see Dr. Hank McKoy, though he wasn't blue yet. Anyway, all said and done it was a good night.

I ended up talking with James about my relational issues on the way home and ended up feeling really somber afterwards. I didn't want to, but maybe it was due time. It seems to come in waves - it's really hard to practice disengaing your thoughts from something that hurt you so much and focus on the Lord. It sure helps to read the Word though.

Peace, be still... ]
