"I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service, even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent aggressor Yet I was shown mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief; and the grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus. It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all. Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in Him for eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. "

- 1 Timothy 1:12-17
two down, several more to go

yesterday marked the end of my second semester of seminary and i've now accumulated one semester's worth of hours! ha

it's a little weird being a student again, i must say. and as i think i've mentioned before, i used to say "i never have to ______ again" with reference to studying for exams/quizzes/etc. , doing homework, papers and the like. famous last words, of course.

in a couple of my classes there were guys graduating this semester. kudos to them. i can't even imagine being that close to finishing.

"one [semester] at a time, sweet Jesus"

I said those exact words to someone the other day: I thought I was done with exams and finals. But... never say never. I have taken 3 finals so far with one more on Friday. Yikes!! I'm ready for a break already. Hope your semester went well. Who would have thought... after 10 years, we are back in the same town, still friends and both in school again. Crazy.
