It has been several days since I posted last. I guess I have just been really busy. I moved into a new apartment. I went to two weddings. I am getting ready for school to start in a couple of days. Overall, it is an exciting and changing time.
I am sitting in a little room on campus. It has large arm-chairs, tables, and a piano. I was looking through a little notebook I have to see if there were any random thoughts that I could build on to make a post. I found the very first pages in the little book were written on my very first day of college three and a half years ago. The funny thing is that I was sitting in this very same room and waiting nervously for my first class. I was so excited that I hardly knew what to do with myself. Alot has changed since then. As I prepare in a couple of days to begin my last semester here, I am filled with a different sort of anticipation. This is the excited anticipation of something coming soon. In some ways it is the same anticipation one has when waiting for a friend to return after a long absence. The soonness makes all the difference.
Sometimes I wonder why, although I know that Christ is returning soon and I look forward to it, I don't have that same enthusiasm always for it or that feeling of soonness in anticipation.
