i don't like bus rides

lets see...10 hours by car, or let the greyhound peoples mess up the schedule and it will take 17 hours. you decide.
but other than that my break totally rocked. i got to see my guys come back from marine basic and buds. those three are way so much more man than a lot of other guys i know. it was kewl to see them agian. got to go to wrestling practise and show off for some of the little tykes. wrestle-ball was a blast. got to ride my motorbike as pastor king calls it. got to see him too. being home was kinda weird. i used to hate high school and everything so much. i kind of saw why i hated it cuase i got to see it from the outside looking in, but i kinda miss it now. i guess it wasn't so bad after all. the older i get i'm realizing that the the things i dislike in life can just as easily be ignored as they can be hated, but ignoring them is a much better way to deal with it. i got to see allie a lot. it was nice to see her after being away for 3 months. it was nice to see all the friends i got to see. maybe indiana isn't such a bad state. i have a lot of friends there. i got to shoot bottle rockets and roman candles....and i'll stop there. even got to play airsoft some. at christmas i wanna get a bunch of guys to play somewhere...maybe like school...that would be so much fun. hope i'll get to ride some over christmas break. we'll see. i doubt it. best of all i'll get to see my parents over christmas break. my mom is the best cook ever and she's a lot of fun to talk to. and my dad, as goofy and weird as he can be sometimes, really has great advice. he can see my side but he also see's the big picture as well. he tries to help me make the best decision over the long run, not what is easiest for now. and then there's my bro...a kewl guy who is a great friend to me and to a lot of other people. he's a great example, but he can be a lot of fun too. (like with bottle rockets and roman candles) and when all 4 of us get together, its a blast. i never really took the time to think about my family and what i love about them, but the 17 hour bus trip kinda gave a few spare moments to cogitate on such things. i can't wait for christmas break, but this time its for a diff reason. for thanksgiving break i wanted to jsut get out of here. and i did and i enjoyed myself. but now i want break to come so i can spend time with the people i care about. cause that's what holidays are really all about. its not to get off work or out of school - its to be with those you love. that's the way to have a good holiday.

john 4:34

"Jesus said unto them, 'My meat is to do the will of Him who sent me, to finish His work.'"

i saw this verse during a service i went to on sunday night. i kinda caught my eye cause i was hungry. but then it sunk it:
to do the will of Him who sent me.
that should be what drives me on. what sustains me. i shouldn't need the support of other people or good friends or recognition for what i do. if i'm doing what's right, that should be all i need. i have found a lot of encouragement in that. i hope you can too.
