I have to update before Spring Break. Last weekend was a great balanced weekend. Friday night I went see “Hitch” It was so funny. It was one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. I went with a freshman in my floor and three freshman boys she knew. Huge deal for me to go out with people I don’t know. Then Saturday was my missions car wash. I am going to the Check Republic this summer. The carwash was a huge success. We made over $400. Then later that night I went study at Starbucks. I invited Jen and Kevin. I knew Jen would keep us on task and it was nice to see Kevin in a setting other than the cafeteria. Monday I did another thing that I have never done… I asked a boy out. OK so this is not as huge of a deal since it is only Image Banquet and I am not romantically interested in this boy. Nevertheless it was still hard. I was supposed to ask him at dinner, but yes I chickened out. Gosh, why am I such an idiot when it comes to boys? I don’t know; I just hope I grow out of it. So anyway I called him later that night and he said yes. I went skiing in Colorado with him last year and sorta got to know him. He is a great guy and I know I will have fun with him.
In other news I get to go home for Spring Break. First Colorado, oh yea baby we are going skiing in the Rockies, and we will be back on Wednesday March the 16(my birthday by the way). Then on Thursday morning I will drive to Louisiana. Rumor has it that my dad is planning a mini vacation. I guess I am down for whatever. I guess the best thing I can say right now is that God is good. I know that sounds so corny, but it is how I feel. I am learning to deal with such a variety of people; needy, cynical, argumentative. I used to get so angry with those people who have all the knowledge of God, but then would miss the simplicity of His love and sharing His love with others. Over the last two years God has placed all of the above people in my life. I am now dealing with these people on a daily basis! I cannot explain the changes I am going through. I feel what God feels for these people and others. I appreciate all the things that have happened in my life because they are why I have the hunger that I have now to know His word and Him more intimately. My life is heading in directions for which I have never planned. That is truly scary for me. One thing I know for sure it that although my future will be different that I expected I also know it will be better than anything I could ever hope for.
Much love folks,Jessie Berzas
