I'll be home for Christmas

What an exciting time. I am on break and home for the holidays. I have only been home for a little over a day and already I am reminded of what I miss about home so much.... no... there's no snow on the ground right now, but I'm sure there will be before Christmas comes. What I'm talking about is more than that, the family, the friends, the laughs and memories you create when you are around those you love. That is what I miss about home. Not to take away from the memories I create at school, they are just as important and precious to me, but once memories are created with someone, there is always that longing to create more. So, rather than sit here and write about it more, I think I'm going to go make some memories.

It's been a long time

WOW! Life has been crazy. I don't think I've posted since before Thanksgiving break. I'm no longer in two bands... for the time being. We'll see how things go. If there's one thing I have learned about bands is that I have to be flexible. I'm grateful to only be in one band right now as we prepare for Gauntlet, having to play in two bands during that time would be a lot. Work is less crazy now that classes are over for the semester, which is good. We've got just enough time to reset and make sure everything is working before the new Januaries come in after break. The life of Production Team members is quite busy during Gauntlet.
Ministry Team is back on campus, which means my family from last year has had a chance to reunite. It has been so good to see them and catch up. They are a group of people that we can not see each other for months, and pick up right where we left off.
I've recorded a couple of songs in the studio now, I'm really excited about finally getting one done that I've been working on for a long time. I've got to mention here, that I could not have made this recording without the help of two of my roommates from last year - so THANKS A TON (you know who you are)!
I'm so looking forward to going home for Christmas. I didn't get to see a bunch of people at Thanksgiving time, like I had hoped, so looking forward to seeing them.
I've been going through a lot of life changes recently. The Lord is calling out a lot of stuff in life, that to some, may be insignificant, but to Him, and to me - if I want to live completely sold out to Him, it means a lot more. I'm learning a lot about obedience in the small things.
I'd better get back to something important looking. :)
