Three years ago today, I met the love of my life. The girl of my dreams, and the woman I am going to marry five months from today.

Father God, thank you for blessing me with Jennifer. Thank you for bringing her into my otherwise geeky and lame life. Thank you for pulling me out of the crap I was in and giving me the one I will be spending the rest of my life with.

Psalm 91

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you make the Most High your dwelling— even the LORD, who is my refuge-
10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

That’s about how my quiz was just now in World Civ 2. Stimulating, huh?

So, how’s it going? So far so good on my end for summer classes. World Civ 2 is shaping up to be about as I expected: Boring. The teacher uses Powerpoint though, so it’s easier to take note than when I had Dr. Kyle for World Civ 1 last semester. World Music class is pretty fun in general. We’ve been studying the music of Africa so far, so we’ve spent the first 45 minutes of every class playing in a drum circle. Seriously. With drums. African drums. Or djembe, if you will.

Yesterday was kinda weird, though. Dr. Varner apparently noticed how well I was keeping up with a pretty complicated beat while playing one of these guys, so he had me sit in the center of the circle with a dude who was kicking butt on the djembe and had us lead the group. It was pretty fun! But then, we get back to the classroom, and in the middle of lecture, he calls me out because he thinks I’m “checkin’ out” on my laptop (his words, not mine). I had to resist the urge to step up to the front of the classroom with my laptop and shove the notes I was taking in his face. Totally ruined my morning when he did that.

But, I let that go, and afterward I was able to have some nice quality time with Jenn, like I’ve been fortunate to do nearly every day this week. We went for a swim for a second time this week, and the sunburn I got on Monday didn’t really like being out in the heat again. The cold water helped, though.

Oh, Jenn found her wedding dress! She went shopping with her mom, her aunt, Misty, and Misty’s mom on Tuesday, and she found “the one.” She’s going back today to get fitted for it, and it should be ready for her around October or November. That’s about all I can say about it, though, because I’m going out of my way to make sure I don’t know a thing about the dress until I see her walking down the aisle in it. I even asked her to get a new memory card for her camera, exclusively for the pictures she takes of the dress. That way, she can take that card out and put it away when not showing the pictures to someone, so I can use the camera without worrying about accidentally seeing the pictures. 🙂

Tomorrow is mine and Jenn’s -1 anniversary. 1 year until our wedding, WOO! Can’t wait to take her out for some fun. 🙂
