I have done some crazy things with my friends here. Food runs after curfew are a blast and so is man-sized Jenga in the wrestling loft. There’s so much for me to tell about my experience. Mine. But I forget that not everyone just wants to hear about me.
Recently, we’ve had a couple of chapels that have pointedly exposed my fallacy. We have what’s called Praise Chapel where students are encouraged to share what the Lord has been doing in their lives. And Student Leadership Chapel this morning was similar and equally encouraging. People stood up an talked about sharing their faith with strangers and proof of God’s providence in ways that got me excited! I fail to realize that God loves them and takes care of them just like He does for me.
I have been working on looking for God’s hand in my life, and I have definitely been able to see Him move in huge ways lately. But when I can sit in chapel and hear how He can do the same in others’ lives as well, I’m blown away.
So, it’s not just about my situation anymore. How has God been at work in you?

Dinner is one of my favorite times of the day. But I am a morning person - how can this be? It is at dinner that I get to spend time with my friends and laugh with them. It is also the time when I hear the most laughter.
Laughter is one of the most important aspects in a person’s life. I love to laugh and I love to hear my friends laugh whether it is at me or at something else. Laughter is one of my favorite parts of life.
Here at BBC I find myself surrounded by people who love to laugh and joke around. As usual there are times when things get a little out of hand. That is to be expected when you are having a good time with your friends.
Friendships are formed usually over a good laugh. And that is how many of the people here became some of my closest friends and most of those times of initial friendship was founded at the BBC cafeteria tables.
I pray that you have a lot of laughter in your life and a good number of friends to share that laughter with. I know I do.
