First two weeks in the books

These past two weeks have been blurs of activity in a pool of eternity.
Fast and forever at the same time. I wish I could scroll through my
journal and skim detailed entrys on these days, but my journal is looking
skimpy and stripey lately: Bold headlines, followed by thin stripes of
single-sentence summaries of each day.
I flew in to Pensacola the Saturday before last, and from Saturday to
Wednesday I was mostly alone, getting settled, registering for classes, or
working. By Thursday, I had gotten to know a few people and settled in
and classes began. My classes are: World History, English and
Composition, Speech, Biology, New Testament, and Physical Fitness. I have
some great teachers. My history teacher is awesome - captivating. My
english teacher was forgiving when I was late for class, both times. Mr.
Pirkle, my biology professor, is a humorous old man and he integrates the
Bible into our studies a lot. As far as physical fitness goes... my
muscles have been killing me.
I definitely see how God has been carrying me through these past days:
finishing homework assignments, settling into college, making good
friends, etc. When I get some time, I want to introduce you to some of my
college friends.

More details in the future. Thank you for all of your prayers.

P.S. Flying into Pensacola, I came through some awesome clouds. The scene
was Majestic. Truly awesome. I prayed that God would seal it in my
memory. To me that scene was a gift from God. As I have scrambled
through my days here, sometimes wondering how I am going to live up to
what God requires of me, the clouds have been a constant witness that my
God is with me.

"Who layeth the beams of His chambers in the waters: Who maketh the clouds
His chariot: Who walketh upon the wings of the wind..." Psalm 104:3
