EVER THE ROAD GOES ON

Living the questions and trying to think theologically... and practically. Learning that these things are more synonymous than I once thought.

Um, Hello...if anyone is still there.....

I know. I stink, but my computer bit the dust, and how's a girl to blog? Anyways, I miss you all. The infrequent internet access makes me feel so disconnected from so many folks. So much has been going on, I don't even know where to begin. Well, maybe with the biggest and best bit of news.... I GOT A JOB! I'm working for a ministry in South Dallas. We do day camps and after school programs for kids in inner city neighborhoods, and we bring in college students to work with them. It's designed to help revitalize churches in declining neighborhoods by giving them a presence among youth, and help college students with leadership and discernment. Yes, I do think it is sooo right for me, and the people I'm working with are top-notch. I start on Monday and I can't wait. I'm glad I'll be in Texas a little longer. I'm in the process of trying to find a new place to live around here. If you hear of anything, or know anyone who is looking for a roommate, let me know.

Being home in Mississippi for the holidays was the same as always, nice to see family, nice change of pace, and then good to come back to the city. I've missed Waco lately. I hope I can come down at least for a Sunday really soon. I'm about to get a new cell number and a new address, so I'll send contact update info as soon as I have it.

Last night, I had some of my friends over for the first time we'd all seen each other after the holidays. Some one asked April how she was doing, to which she replied, " It's 2007. I'm great! How else would I be?" My sentiments exactly.

Yipeeee!!! Congragulations! I'm so happy for you. I know that's a huge load off.

And glad to have you blogging again. You are one of my "Check every other day" blogs, but were close to the "once a week" rotation. You saved yourself.

I'll ask around about roommates.

Wonderful! I knew you were bound to be in texas a little while longer. I miss you lady--and do you think you could e-mail me your address...that is if you aren't moving too soon.

Hellooooooo! I'm glad you are going to stick around in Texas. I'm hoping to move back this summer...hopefully to Austin. Congrats on the job! I wanted to send you an e-mail the other day but I'm not sure I have a current one, what is your e-mail address?

Hey lady. JUST saw your comment on my Xanga. Sorry it has taken me a while to respond, but I just didn't see it!

Totally forgot you are in Dallas. We should get a drink sometime. It'd be nice to see a UBC face.
