Sleepy because...

I'm starting to feel really drowsy. I thought, at first, that the cause was due to these late nights I have been having. Or else, it could be these Australian government policies I have been reading all afternoon... No, I think it's the tasty turkey hoagie I had for lunch. No, chemicals of sleepiness! I fight you with tea!


This morning at Romans study, we learned about Sanctification. Big word with a simple meaning. It means to grow and be made pure in love, righteousness, and hope. This can only come about when one turns away from the old way of living, dying to death, to live for life. The Law shows us that no one can become perfect by trying to follow the rules. It's by Grace that we gain righteous standing and then by faith that we grow to become righteous.

John 17:17 - "Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth."

Romans 6:4 - "...we also should walk in newness of life."


Does anyone have any familiarity with records management applications (RMA)? I need to learn about how these work before the last week of class to write my paper... Ah well, I will just research more. I can't wait for a vacation from school.

Last night I dreampt, among other things, that I stood behind a monument at Gettysburg where there were about 4 or 6 people making large glass suns. I am not sure what they were going to do with these, but they poured excess materials into tea kettles in the form of molasses. Hmm, weird. I had another, darker dream, and it came to me only later in the day and troubled me. I am not sure what happened. Something about a storm that was silent and black and at the window.

On another note, my mind keeps flickering about with curious ideas.

In a ball of yarn.

My heart is tugging at my mind. Megan, Megan!
Meanwhile, my mind is balancing. I don't want to cause more harm than good.
