For the record, and quite obviously might I add,
HAVING THE FLU SUCKS!!!!!!!
I've never been so miserable in my entire life. Thank goodness for antivirals, sleep, Sprite, and prayers!!

I can't even begin to describe the amazing, amazing change that God has afftected in my life. I am a brand-new person, just as God promises to do when you take Him into your heart (again, in my case), and I am loving the person that I am examining myself to be. I hate to sound preachy or to have that holier-than-thou attitude that so many people do when they talk about their faith, but I have never felt such overwhelming joy or such overflowing peace before- ever. I've found true happiness, and I understand what it means for God to fill up the voids that are inevitable in who we are as human beings. I've really been able to see something so pivotally important recently- when you live your life in the world, you base who you are in material things: cars, money, iPods, books, houses, the people around you. But the thing about that is, those things fail. Always. Over time, upgrades come out, the economy gets flushed, ink fades, people change and relationships crumble. No matter what it is, everything in this world will eventually, in some way or another, fail. And that is why it is so so important to define who you are in God- because God is unshakeable, and no matter how many steps you take in the wrong direction, God is always there. And it is so indescribably FABULOUS to have these things be so real to me. That's the amazing thing about faith- you can't see it or touch it or grab it or smell it, but for those people who reach out and take hold of that gift that God holds out to us all, faith is REAL. Nothing else matters, except that God is real. From sunrise to sunset, every day. :)
