Seeing all the couples around the campus
Trying to make new friends
Whenever there’s ice cream at the cafeteria
When your professor starts moving on to quickly
Writing a research paper
When a cute guy/girl talks about trying to find a girl/boyfriend at college
When people come into your room without knocking
Trying to get to bed whenever everyone else is still awake
All the boys who give hugs without asking
Trying to be a good student while your friends don’t do any of their homework until an hour before the due date
When your professor goes overtime
Having a crush on that guy/girl you pass everyday on the way to class but never speak to
Wanting to do fun things but also trying to save money
When the professor asks a question that he says is important to know for the test but you don’t know the answer to it
Trying to psych yourself up before a test
Leaving the classroom after taking a test
Checking your grades and getting a better one then you expected
Listening to your professor’s lecture in your last class on Friday
Today I’m going to talk about those silly little critters called people. Surprised you, didn’t I? You thought I was going to talk about dogs. Sorry. Nope : ) Don’t even have a dog. But if you looked at this post hoping to read about dogs, keep reading. It’s a good post.
Anyway, I’ve had a bit of a thought brewing in my mind which, like many of my thoughts, spawned from annoyance with a common human characteristic: what is it, I ask, with people and underdogs?
Allow me to qualify my question. People have a natural attraction to glory, honor, and accomplishment. That’s because people are meant to love God, and there is no greater epicenter of glory, honor, and accomplishment than the Godhead. I understand why people revel when long odds are overcome. But if you look closely at the underdog infatuation, I believe you will discover something…

A wonderful post from my cousin.
As I sit here reflecting on God’s grace and mercy I am blown away. I go to shake my head in disbelief at the thought that He would love a repeated sinner like me… but He does, and my head must stop its shaking and believe.
This week I was able to share my story of God’s grace in my life these past 21 years. In brief: He saved me from hell, but He went beyond that act of love to save me from myself. At one point I chose a path for my life that was a fool’s path – one of heartache, depression, broken promises, deceit, and false dreams. It was even leading me to physical death. But God, who is rich in mercy, reached down into my tiny life and saved me. He wrapped His loving arm around my gasping heart and calmed it. Thank you Jesus!

Isn’t my brother just the best guy ever? “Yes, you are jealous. Admit it. Too bad, [He’s] mine.] Best. [Brother.] Ever.”
My wife pretty much rocks the world.
Yesterday we had some steak for Memorial Day (just so you know, the steak was given to us, we’re too poor to buy steak ; ). She wanted to marinade it. Good idea. How was she going to marinade it? No idea. She was just going to make something up. So she did.
So after they soaked for awhile, she cooked them up in a panini maker. The result was the best steak I have ever had. Cooked in a panini maker. After marinating in a marinade my wife just made up. Off the top of her head.
After dinner my wife gnawed on the bones.
Yes, you are jealous. Admit it. Too bad, she’s mine.
Best. Wife. Ever.
Since I posted this https://boswelling.wordpress.com/2014/04/22/1065/ a little while ago I wanted to give you all a little update. 🙂
My sister was wonderful to me and sent my letter to Paul on his Facebook page for me since I don’t have Facebook.
Guess what she showed me a few days later when she checked her email?
He actually replied back! I honestly never expected that! It made me so very, very happy! I think I’m going to print this out and put it on my wall. 🙂
Honestly, there are few things happier then knowing that someone who is famous and who you look up to actually knows you exist.
I really would rather not do this. Up to now, this blog has been a largely pleasurable experience. I may have made people mad, but no one has responded with anger in the comments section. I’m afraid that, today, I’m going to cross the line. I’m going to speak out against homosexuality.
Please try not to be upset. Please try to think clearly about what I have to say. Please don’t assume I hate gay people. I don’t. I love gay people so much! I feel so, so bad for the way they are caught in eternally destructive behavior. I feel bad for liars, thieves, murderers, and adulterers. I feel bad for a lot of people. I wish they would be saved and be happy. But I know they are not.
I wish I had gay acquaintances. I want to meet a gay person, tell them about Jesus, and…
