See that post with the dog? The one where he's dressed like Pooh?
I had a dream about him last night.
First, one of my oldest friends gave him to me to watch. She’s a very easy-going person. In the dream, the dog’s name was Scooby, but I know it was the same dog. Why? It was just one of those things.
We had Scooby in our high-rise apartment in a city somewhere. We lived there for a long time. Somehow Scooby got out, and we had to look for him everywhere. But no matter where we looked, we couldn’t find Scooby.
and when it all was said and done, we went back to Elly to tell her that we had lost her dog, and it wasn’t her dog after all, but another friend of mine’s dog. Turns out this friend is, in real life, actually pretty mad at me, for reasons unknown. She screamed at me for losing her dog, and I’m pretty sure there was some verbal abuse in there. She screamed unto the point that I woke up.
It’s gross outside today. Kind of cold, and rainy.
The last few weeks have been really awesome. God answered my prayer to be more sociable and love with a love that is on fire with the holy spirit, and that definitely happened. But now I find myself attempting to fit back into the real world, and it’s not happening very easily.
On monday, when I tried to tell my friends about my weekend (Boiler Awakening) they definitely weren’t interested. My first clue was when I would mention something about the weekend, they would be absolutely silent. They wouldn’t even try to respond. I understand that they don’t believe in God, but I didn’t think my words would be offensive.
I feel like this is an example of how my life has always been. I live in the secular world, yet I cannot have that many close friends if I live a life with Christ in it. And if I had to choose, I’d choose Christ again and again. Because honestly, when the day is done, the secular world isn’t always going to be there for you, and you’ll feel empty and lost.
This summer promises awesomeness. I’ll be keeping busy, that’s for sure.
How can one look at the world and think that there is no God? It blows my mind. The beauty in everything is so overwhelming.
Matt Maher made a point tonight, in which he said that there are about 2 billion Christians around the world. He also said that Jesus Christ was the only guy to really say, “I am God.” Buddha never did it, nor did Confucius or Mohammed. and if Jesus was lying, then he would have told the biggest lie in the world. It takes something pretty powerful to get 2 billion people to follow you.
my Catholic upbringing. Every time something happens to me that’s even a little bit questionable, I freak out and I have to back it up with my values, it’s something Catholic. If that makes any sense at all.
I listen to Dave, I’m reminded of home, and I miss it so much. I can’t say that I’ve found as much culture in West Lafayette as I’m used to at home. It’s a little weird, actually.
Story: Two girls were walking through my hall, and they were holding hands, fingers linked, and at first I thought nothing of it, and then I did a double take. and honestly, gay people aren’t a weird sight for me. I’ve grown up with them my whole life. I did a double take because honestly, the people I’ve met so far at Purdue, I feel would look at them either with judgment or disgust. and that’s sad.
I’d really like to meet some people that aren’t that way. I’ve been craving culture for a long time. it’s just sometimes Bloomington is too much, that’s why I have to get a little bit at a time.
This summer is going to be awesome. I can’t wait to be back here.
