Well friends, Ro and I are back at school-a day late, but not a dollar short. On Tuedsday afternoon, we were rearended by a car, and subsequently spent about 3 hours in the hospital with whiplash. Very unpleasent, but nothing serious. WE ARE BOTH OK! I just want everyone to know that we aprreciate your concern, and prayers. I know that though it is somewhat painful, God is in controll. After all, when it is all said and done, we will probably both get some sort of insurance settlement, which light of recent events concerning my job, will probably turn out to be a good thing.
Anyhow, classes start tomorrow. I am excited about a frest start, and to see what God has in store for me this semester. Though my youth class that I was so excited about has been canceled, I was able to get into another interesting class called Paul and Spirituality, which sounds like a lot of fun also.
Well, that is about all of the excitment for now, I will leave you with a joke before signing off.
