I turned 20 on Thursday. Yup. Most people on their 20th birthday do grown up, classy things, like go to dinner, or have a nice party. Me? Well, I went to work to find my desk covered in Care Bear wrapping paper, with a cake, princess plates and napkins, and a sash that said "Birthday Princess" on it. After work/the festivities that went along with it, Stephen and I went to the mall and enjoyed shopping (even though I was in the dressing room most of the time :]).
At around 6, a bunch of us met and went to the beach, where we played volleyball, leapfrog, and made a human pyramid. Later, we went to the eternal flame and made s'mores then had a little worship and prayer session. It was really nice! :]
So maybe I didn't have the most "adult" birthday, but it was nice to see that even though I'm not a "kid" anymore, I still have a young, fun spirit!
This weekend I AD'd Index of a Madman. This independent film was produced and directed by a group of Regent freshman. They rented all their equipment and pulled the shoot off quite well. My only complaint is that no one knew protocol. It's tough running a set when no one knows the proper way to act on set! But either way, it was a fun experience. We shot in an abandoned insane asylum!! I am SO tired though.

I got asked out today by a guy. At Wawa.
Who asks people out while they are pumping gas?
This is the story: Christen pulls into Wawa parking lot. She starts pumping gas. Boy looks at her. Walks inside Wawa. Boy comes out of Wawa, notices my New Jersey license plate. Tells me he's from New York. We talk briefly about school. He asked if I had a boyfriend. I said no. Then realized I should have said yes. He proceeded to ask me out. I said "Dude, I don't know you." He replied with "Well we could get to know each other." I said. "I'm flattered, but no thank you." He respectfully went to his car. I went toward my car. I stopped, turned around, then told the boy that even though I was not interested, I still appreciated the fact that he had the courage to ask a girl out because a lot of boys just don't do that anymore."
Then I drove to New Jersey.

I've seen a pattern in my reading over the past few weeks.
GOD'S PROMISES WILL BE FULFILLED.
"Has God forgotten to be merciful?
Has he in anger withheld his compassion?
Then I thought, "To this I will appeal;
the years of the right hand of THE
MOST HIGH. I will remember the deeds
of the Lord; yes, I will remember your
miracles of long ago. I will meditate on all
your works and consider all your mighty deeds."
-Psalm 76: 10-12
I think I just forget. I get busy and caught up in school and work and life that I disregard the fact that GOD. IS. STILL. GOD. Despite my films, my friendships, my good days, my bad days; in it all He is still sovereign, He is still in control.
"I sought the Lord and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears."
If I do not SEEK the Lord, how can I expect Him to move, to keep His promises?
"BUT THE LORD STOOD AT MY SIDE
and gave me strength, so that through
me the message might be fully proclaimed
AND ALL THE GENTILES MIGHT HEAR IT"
-2 Timothy 4:17
When it comes down to it, it's not about me. It's not about you, your mom, your grandpa. It's about HIM. I am FULLY CONFIDENT that the Lord will stay true to the promises He claims, but unless we trust Him with everything else, should He really keep His word?
