1 down 1 to go

well on Sunday night i started getting a massive headache almost migraine like while i was studying for my biology exam that i did today so i continued to study popped so ibuprofen still wouldn't go away so i just decided to go to sleep... haha took me a while to fall asleep because i was thinking of doing a 40 day solitude in the wilderness because the pastor on Sunday said something about Jesus and his 40 day fast in the wilderness( don't think i can fast for that long)
well anyways i woke up at like 10 in the morning cause my exam only started at like 12:30 and i thought that my headache was gone but half an hour after i woke up it came back just as i was ready to go to school to do some last minute studying. so i was sitting in my exam praying that my headache would go away, it resides a bit but is still there.
so i finished my exam and now am getting ready to study for my Law exam tomorrow yay then im done this semester.

my verses of the day are

Hebrews 12:1-3 NIV

God Disciplines His Sons
1Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. 2Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

music that inspires me

this is some music that has inspired and continues to inspire me, music is one of my favorite forms of expression

one of my favorites by the band the reception
Quieting (words and music by Jon Rash)

a lesson in simplicity / instruction on the stormy seas / of life and death and in-betweens / and i can't understand these things / i'm sick of overthinking / and i / am tired of giving up hope / but You / are there / beside me / You're comforting me / You're quieting me / a lesson in simplicity / as overwhelmed as it may seem / beleaguered and we've been besieged / but i know what i'm seeking / the calm that quiets everything / it passes understanding / and You are there beside me / You're comforting me, You're quieting me / and i am a child in Your arms

one by matt epp
Faith The Bow

Written by: Matt Epp

We must read the Word
Really hear what we haven't heard
See what we haven't seen
Find out how we're now who we will be

We must take stand
Be informed, decided, and planned
Well endowed and allowed to grow
Into feeling what we know

Knowledge the arrow, faith the bow
Knowledge the arrow, faith the bow

We must study love
To learn and teach
And live to give of ourselves
And to preach Narnia's nails
And then tell them the Lion's been released
From three days in hell

The King has prevailed
Our King has prevailed

Knowledge the arrow, faith the bow
Knowledge the arrow, faith the bow
Knowledge the fiddle, faith the bow
Knowledge the arrow, faith the bow

and another great band: means

become so free to live.
for and against, im dead inbetween these rescued and quite, to me this is everything, we walk like a phantom, our voices like a whisper, running with angels, can you play me a song Friend, in the winds and thought the trees, Immanuel you breath in me, you tear my heart as i admire, when i fall down you are my fire, i become so free to live, i become a child of your blood, your body, and blood

good times

well today i had a staff party for beaver creek and it was awesome, first we got there and skated for a couple hours it was pretty fun, only fell a couple times
then we went to the old spaghetti factory, Earl and Ramona were there so that was awesome, ordered the veal parmigiana it was good, had a sprite that was pretty gross, had some laughs, had some good times, had some deep moments, saw some friends i hadn't seen in too long, saw some family, saw some ldcers
today definitely brought back memories of camp, the kids in my cabin who decided to follow Christ, that's what its all about.
god shows himself in these kind of days

God is good

the terror is back

epp is planning on start filming again this spring and i might have a decent size part in it

my calves still hurt a bunch but epp gave me advice on how to help them feel good, not sure if its working yet haha

im kinda mad at boston pizza right now they only gave me one shift this week and its on saturday, its kinda funny that thats the reason kurtis quit there because he only got like 1 or 2 shifts a week and they were on weekend, i guess i dont deserve to have a good week of work because i didnt work at all during the holidays

cleaning out my room, almost have half a garbage bag full of garbage, haha, i like it when my room is clean it looks nice

im excited for the bcbc staff reunion this sunday

grace and peace

praise the lord!

ramona is one step closer to surgery you can read about it Here

*edit* the way i wrote this it seems like its a small step closer but it really is a leap
god is good

in other random news yesterday i decided that i wanted to run on my parents treadmill haha today i am paying for it, ran almost 15 minutes straight at a good speed, but i wasnt wearing shoes so today i have blisters on my toes and my calfs hurt alot when i walk, i dont think i got rid of the lactic acid or whatever its called haha

i have been in a very spiritually encouraged mood the last week or so and it has been great, im learning alot about myself and god. found out that i like reading the bible in a more romantic setting haha candles have become a favorite.

this past week or so havent been very productful in my school life though, its coming down to the last couple weeks and i dont feel ambitious about doing these last few assignments and tests

what ive been listening to http://www.myspace.com/mattepp song- family farm

Tuesday, January 16, 2007


well as some of you may know earl and ramona are flying to toronto today for a consultation to see if surgery is a option, so today is a good time to pray for that.
i am fasting today and encourage others to fast and pray cause i think it is a good experience, define your terms and do it thats all that god cares about
well thats all for now
