Band Seniors

So my life in marching band is now over. In a way, I’m actually quite sad. Never again will I be able to play on the field again. Sure, things were tough sometimes and unloading and loading the truck was a pain. But I really enjoyed it. The picture you see above is all of the seniors for 2006. I may not know all of them quite as well as I might like, but there is some sort of bond between us, even with me only participating in band for the short time of two years. I will say this much, if I attend any Samford games next year, which I most likely will if I live in the area, it will be a very odd feeling. It won’t quite feel the same actually sitting in the stands watching as opposed to playing. I can’t quite fathom that feeling yet…

The infamous Donaldson project(s) still loom over my head. I really have been working hard on this project, but it’s honestly going nowhere. I have some sort of bug in my code that I can’t quite track down… and it’s driving me crazy! I’m sure it’s something small and stupid, but I can’t find it. I honestly don’t know what I’m going to do if I can’t find/finish it by this next Tuesday. My only other hope is that no one else in the class has finished the project either and Donaldson will postpone the project again.

I also had a good talk with someone today. I honestly wish I could do more for people than just pray for them, but I honestly don’t know what I can do. I know God has given me a passion to help people, sometimes I just don’t know how. I know I need prayer myself, I am by no means a perfect person. But I pray that God will always provide to me a cheerful spirit that I can at least always be encouraging to others.

Ultimately, my goal is to strive to be like Him daily, and to grow closer in my relationship to Him. Sure, I have my own wants and needs in life, but it’s amazing how simple those seem when I really do focus on Him. It’s just disappointing that my human nature limits me sometimes to what kind of capacity God would provide if I truly had a heart for him 24/7. I know God will provide for me, I trust that He will provide for me. I truly and honestly believe that; I just need the patience to wait for His guidance.
