Thoughts and Happenings…

Albert from Chicago….

So yes I know I said I would post soon so here it is….. The past week was kind of busy but I got through it. I am pretty sure i have a few things to take care of this week that are a grade, so I probably will have to study and even more busy. But this past weekend my friend Allison came into town to visit myself and a few other people here in nashville. We had a great time.

 

Allison and I went on tour together like 4 or 5 times. I was her director on those YC tours. I probably could not tlel you where all of them went but I know they were all great. Well it has been like almost 2 years since we have seen each other and she decided to come hang out. We got to do a lot of things with my friends whom she loved getting to know. We even went to Hollywood Disco which I am sure I will post some pictures from that soon.

 

Nothing really other to report from this weekend. I can tell you that y shoulder is finally feeling better so maybe I will be able to start doing stuff soon. Oh and there is a small chance that our cheer squad will be on MTV for some TV show but we will see about that.

Where to Begin?…

Ok so this past weekend actually was pretty awesome. I got to Azusa, CA on Friday night trying to figure out what I was going to do then finally decided to rent a movie. But I got a call from my friend Sarah and they wanted me to come eat with them at Cocos so of course I will come eat, I mean how can I pass up food right. So needless to say it was a fun time eating with Sarah her mom and Bethany or so called (BF) from Sarah. Well after we eat they head to some Book extravaganza where they are releasing a new book and I go home to watch my movie.

Something I need to tell you before the next part is, I have been having trouble for about a year with my car. You see my taillights and brake lights were going out a lot and I kept getting pulled over because I would be missing one or the other side, you know what I mean. Well about 2 weeks ago this weird electrical problem started to take over my car right and now I would have Taillights as brake lights during the day (which are dim) and at night when I turned on my lights I would loose both Taillights and brake lights so I had nothing on my back of my car.

Ok so after you knowing that I am driving home and every person that drives by me both ways was waving at me yelling at me and honking that I don’t have lights. Of course I know this that is why I try not to drive at night. Well after watching my movie (Vantage Point) that night I try to get rest and plan on trying to take it in the next day to get fixed. So the next morning rolls around and I have band practice but afterward I take my car to a couple different places to see if they could tell me what is wrong, and guess what NOTHING. They were all like you have to take it to a dealer and leave it with them. Of course I am out here in CA and I have no time to take my car and leave it. So I decide just to wait and pray right. But after all the excitement of trying to fix my car which i didn’t, I went out by the pool and chilled there for the rest of the afternoon, WHICH WAS AMAZING!!!!! Sarah and I had a new friend come over to hang with us (Lauren), She was really cool and liked to have fun.

That evening we went over to Jake’s house (Bethany’s BF) and watched 21 and ate Cookies (MY FAVORITE) It was a nice relaxing evening and then after we got home I went out with a friend to chill and it became a late night before I knew it.

i know this is getting really long but hey your the one reading it. So Sunday rolled around and I was pretty tired but you know what, the sermon that the Pastor preached was just what I needed to hear. You see there had been some stuff in my life that I needed to confess but I hadn’t and that is kind of what he preached on. So yes i confessed them On Sunday and now I feel so much better. It is hard for us as humans not to dwell on our pasts, and wonder how God doesn’t do the same. But I can assure you He does not. He forgives and Forgets!

Sunday afternoon was one of just sitting at Sarah’s house just resting and watching the Incredibles! So yeah it was nice then I had to drive back home to my place. So yeah that is the weekend and I will post another post about the past two days…..

Father’s Day…

This past weekend was actually a really great weekend. I got to go home and spend the weekend with my Dad for Father’s Day and it was awesome. I mean we really didn’t do anything spectacular it was just good to see him and spend a little more time with him since i don’t get to much anymore.

My Dad is incredible though. He is my Hero! Not necessarily you know like Superman, by flying or running through walls or anything like that but just by being himself and by being such a example. You see, when I was younger he would always play with my brother and I football games outside in our yard, always coach our soccer team and would be involved in any other sport we would play. He of course would get onto us and spank us just to make us understand things we thought were right but weren’t at the time. He would most importantly each us the Word of God, not only like by words but by his actions. what a great example for my brother and I to follow. I hope to be a father like he is someday. If I could be like him I would be satisfied.

So I got to spend time with him and the rest  of the family back in AL. I go tot go to my church WORD ALIVE international outreach. It was exactly what I needed to hear. It was about How God can bless us even when we don’t deserve it cause He is God and He can do what he wants, and how He can turn nothing into something in our lives. AWESOME SERVICE!

My family came back with me to Nashville on Sunday so that I could take them and show them around my office I work at. They loved it! My Dad turned back into a little kid it seemed like asking people all kinds of questions and such. My boss was so nice to answer them. I go to take them to the movie set as well which they loved. So now they can say they have been to a movie set. After, we met my new Roomies at the new house for my parents to see. It is an amazing house! I am so excited to move in and it is like not even a mile away from school, so needless to say Nathan will be sleeping in probably a lot. I hope many of you can come visit, you will love it!

Never Know Who You’re Talking Too…

 

I am trying to think of something to tell you, but you know what nothing is really coming to mind. Well actually I did have a crazy encounter last night. You see my friend and I, Erin, were going by McDonalds to rent a Red Box DVD well when we got there, there was what I thought was a homeless man there just standing waiting for someone to give him money. Well we started to look at the movies and he was talking to us but I really wasn’t paying that much attention. Well we picked our DVD and then this guy and I started to have this conversation about his life.

Have you ever talked to someone and at the same time you start talking to them you start to feel that you are not worthy to talk to them. I don’t know it is a weird feeling, it is like there is something about them that is different and makes you feel like you need to confess stuff in your life but then again the feeling talking to them is so joyful and incredible its like you just want to keep talking to them. I don’t know who this guy was but there was something special about him.

His name was Will but he told me that his friends call him “Doc”. He didn’t look like anything special, you know dirty older man who has lived his life all over the country so he said, looked kind of just worn down by life. He did say he was going through some rough times but has a job. So you know I gave a couple dollars so he could get some food. Well after that something interesting happened. I was climbing into my car and I just told him to have a blessed night. Right before I rolled up my window he said “you don’t happen to be a believer do you?” I said yes I am a follower and believer of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Well right after that he just said “hey man do you think you could pray for me cause I am going through a really tough time right now and I know I just need to get right with God” so of course I was like YEAH. But the cool thing was right before I started to pray he just kneeled down before me and started praying out loud. So I placed my hand on him and at that moment something came over me and it was such a funny feeling I can’t describe. I don’t know just so many things started to pop up in my mind about my life, it was weird and when he was done praing I started to pray for him and it was hard. usually God just gives me words to speak and to pray over someone this time it was different. But I finally finished and he thanked me and ws very grateful for the couple dollars and was about to walk into McDonalds to get food when he stopped me again when I was rolling up my window. He yelled out to me and said “Hey maybe I will see you again, you never know who your talkin too!” 

I know I am rambling on but to be honest, before he said that to me, even earlier in our conversation I was thinking to myself who is this man. He was different, but kind of brushed it off. But after he said that it made me think and I wanted to jump out of the car and ask him a question. I bet some of you already know the question I would ask too, and if you don’t comment me and I will tell you, but i decided not too b/c he had already gone.

I am sure maybe you have had some encounters like this one, where the question in your head is the same one in mine now, the answer is we may never know but the cool thing is, God sets up divine appointments for all of us, to encourage and bless us in so many different ways….
