We'll be...

... tired and happy

... a dancing generation

... full of God

... praying

All these things and more happened over the last couple of weeks.

Ignite 2005 was an amazing experience. More than ever before. I think God that we only had to rely on him to make the last week fantastic. Its great to see God moving in such a young generation.

Leaders will rise up from Ignite and God will be seen in all of the country, all of the time, not just in Denstone, Staffs for one week a year.

A highlight was seeing the Farmery's in the Incredibles outfits. A fitting tribute to how they have been to the church overthe last year. They are both incredible and it's very sad to see Charlie leave St Marys.

I'm praying for all the Ignite people and I'm sure that God will remain stronger than he has done.

I trust him fully. I can't give out any more, so I spent most of today receiving. Yeay for people who had sleep. Thank you for smiling and crying with me.

That's it, my final good bye to Luton.

I love you all...

Don't Joke

The Pub is great, I love working there. Today I learnt a very precious lesson...

Don't joke with the regulars before they've had a drink.

They were so sombre when they walked in. It was really quiet (that might also be because they turned the cricket off!). I didn't say a word and went back to my pint of water.

In the evening they are opinionated and happy to be that way, but not today. I went home very quickly.

Had a lovely Brendon in Billericay weekend. Learnt lots, cried some, got my heart broken. God does great things for us, I'm so glad he's with me all the time.

Final Mark

I decided to wait til the end of the week to write. A lot has happened though.

On Sunday I started handing out the letters for support. I will post it up, but I need the skill to change file names and post them. One good thing comes out of lots of talking and praying. The tithe-ing group at church gifted me £500 to start me off! Yeay, thanks Jesus.

Monday Liz came back and shared exciting news about her week away. You'll find out in time what this is. I'm not at liberty to share it.

Been working and shopping since. I also have been recruited to give blood at some point, but when is my decision!

I got my degree mark as well. Of course getting it included one phone call and several follow ups. Even after two weeks of waiting I still don't have my final transcript. The first one I receive will have that I didn't hand in my dissertation.

Yep, thats right. I rang up on Tuesday morning and asked where my results were. The lady at the other end told me I'd not got a mark as my dissertation second mark hadn't arrived.

Those who know me will know I strived for ages and would not take this as the answer! Eventually I got back through to the University and was told that the mark just hadn't been put into the system. Ha ha!

All that stress for nothing. I wasted 3 hours of my life worrying for no reason.

It was amended and in September I will graduate from the University of Luton with a lower second class Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminology and Psychology. Yeay! We had champagne to celebrate.

I've persevered with reading my Bible, I'm almost back on track. God's been really good to me this week. I can only thank Him. And advise you never to shop at debenhams online... thats another story.
