Spring Semester Starts Here.


Hey guys, today marks my last first day of classes. Except, appropriately enough, I don't have Monday classes. #gradschool. I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow to end the longest break of my life (seriously, I haven't done anything since December 7.) Although, can I just say that this past weekend was the most perfect Cville weekend ever, and the best way to end the break with a bang? New friends, old friends, a little wine-tasting (twice), some Blue Ridge Parkway hiking (above) followed by a little Blue Mountain Brewery, and some Downton Abbey to top it off? Perfection.

Anyway. In light of the final stretch of school, which in turns makes me think about Making Big Life Decisions and words like Vocation, I wanted to share this passage by Kevin DeYoung that I like a lot (so much so that I wrote it in my journal once and rediscovered it this morning):

"God doesn't care where you go to school or where you live or what job you take...
God certainly cares about these decisions insofar as her cares for us and every detail 
of our lives. But in another sense...these are not the most important issues in God's 
book. The most important issues for God are moral purity, theological fidelity,
 compassion, joy, our witness, faithfulness, hospitality, love, worship and faith.
...We should spend more time trying to figure out how to act justly, love mercy 
and walk humbly with God as a doctor or lawyer and less time worrying about 
whether God wants us to be a doctor or lawyer."
- from Just Do Something by Kevin DeYoung

Happy Back-to-class day, everyone! (Well, everyone minus me.)
