Sooooooooooo...I just woke up at 8:45...i presumably was going to attend class at 8:30...
Cause and Effect would tell you: I unknowingly turned off my alarm, overslept, and considered it useless to get ready in five minutes only to be 30 minutes late for class. I have already done that once this semester for the same class, and I think that one really shows my devotion so that my teacher won't expect it again? Right? Luckily this is a teach that I have had 6/8 semesters since I have been in college. He constantly rips on me for being from WV and I play along so that it will lead him to another long tangent/story. Genius, and what a servant I am to my class: to be the butt of all jokes just so we get less done, have lower expectations, and are more entertained during class.
Sorry Mom and Dad.
In other news...We had a great small group last night. I met with 5 high school ladies to begin the all church journey small group. What I absolutely LOVED about this was not being the group leader. Amy is officially hosting, but the way that the group is designed by the series creators there really is no one person who is the leader. They insert funny reasons why certain people in the group should take on the host role at different times during the group...i.e. closest person to the door read this, nearest birthday person do this.
I will be the first to admit that I truly deprive myself of fellowship that I know I need because I am not in a small group or Bible study that I am not also leading. I meet with girls Sunday nights, lead campaigners on Mondays and then the rest of the week I am typically meeting one on one with girls. I am striving not to be the reverberating voice in this group. These girls hear me talk talk talk all the time, so I want to back off some and let them learn from each other as I really learn from them. Molly and Katie, two girls who have really rebelled against YoungLife stuff in the past are fervently coming to campaigners, meeting with me regularly, and totally excited about this group. I gave Katie her own Bible last night and Molly is feverishly underlinging and taking notes during study. They are both looking for answers for some of their doubts and I pray that the Lord reveals himself in ways that they could never imagine!
"Look at the nations and watch—
and be utterly amazed.
For I am going to do something in your days
that you would not believe,
even if you were told. (Habakkuk 1:5)
