I've decided that I like reading blogs much more than writing them. Here are two non-Xanga ones I read regularly:

Life at College

I will say, since I'm posting, that life is going great. I've been reading and enjoying the Chronicles of Narnia. Work is going fine. I released a fully-featured beta version of the AuthorTool yesterday, and since then have started working on a 2004 trial version of SOS. It's coming along quite nicely.

I'm taking next week off to be a counselor at AWANA Camp. It will be good to get away for a week, especially from the 105 degree weather. Pray for me that I would have a positive spiritual impact on the kids. Oh, and also pray that as a team captain I would be enthusiastic enough to make the week fun and exciting for the Red team. Go RED!! :)

Wow. I just got back from Sovereign Grace's college group Bible study. It was amazing. I have not been in an environment with that level of spiritual discussion since...well, PHC. I really enjoyed the worship, and the discussion of Revelation 3. We really dug deep into what Christ was saying to the church at Sardis. The key idea was to be totally centered on the gospel as a church. And not just the concept, to let it affect everything. Anyway, the people were great and I was really blessed. I'm disappointed that I won't be able to go to service on Sunday. But a weekend in San Diego won't be too bad. :)

I'm in one of those modes where I don't really want to blog. But I should because I have some interesting things to say.

I started attending Sovereign Grace Church in Gilbert on Sunday. The service was really good and I look forward to getting more involved this summer. I need to do some more study on the spiritual gifts, but I'm getting more comfortable with the way they practice them.

I finished The Four Loves, and really enjoyed the chapters on Friendship and Charity. Wow. It is definitely a must read. I was hit once again by the passage arguing for taking the risk of loving people. There is so much deep truth in that book; I will probably read it again. For the last couple of days, I've been spending my free time practicing the piano and tonight I studied some Latin. Work has been going well. I just got a couple new projects today, so I'm going to be busy enough.

I had a great holiday weekend. Yesterday I saw Shrek 2 with my family, after seeing the first one on Sunday for the first time. I was very impressed with the quality of both the animation, and the stories of these films. They were hilarious too. :) This weekend, my family is going to San Diego so my dad can run a marathon there.
