Well, finals has come and gone ... and true to my self-fulfilling non-prophecies about inevitable deep and pondering posts ... there were none. :)
And... I find myself at home. It's definitely good to be back. I drove back with my apartmentmate and good friend, Tim. Once we got on 101 to 85, it was a very familiar feeling of home :). Took an awesome hot shower, unpacked, and curled up to read LOTR again. I doubt I'll be able to finish before watching "Return of The King" on Wednesday, but I can hope.
Feeling a bit melancholy, I'm really stoked about break and everything ... but many things weighing on my heart. I've been saying that I've changed a lot in recent posts; it seems that home often reminds me how much I'm still the same. This is where the "new" Benson gets a bit refined and tested in the fire.
It can only be a good thing.
This break is going to be awesome ... beyond what I could ever ask or imagine ... it very well may bring the lowest of lows (not necessarily emotional ones), but set me up for the glorious highs. God, I got my shovel in one hand and my sword in the other. Let's do this.
You are the author of knowledge
You can redeem what's been done
You hold the present and all that's to come
Until your everlasting kingdom
Lord, I don't know where all this is going
Or how it all works out
Lead me to peace that is past understanding
A peace beyond all doubt -- Newsboys, "I Don't Know"
