As your road trip routes through the college dorms, successful navigation means apprehending your destination and enjoying some scenery along the way. There’s a balance between pleasure and purpose. Or, to go a step farther, the pleasure serves the purpose by giving healthy outlets to be refueled and refreshed.

David describes this trusted system as managing your inventory of agreements with yourself. This is one of the gauges on your personal management dashboard. Taking control of your time will help you manage your health, possessions, money and career. Failing to take control of your time can lead to breakdown or chaos in every other area of your life.

All of this is really great. It really is, but I feel distracted. I remember a blog post about a road and a book project and I feel detoured. Then God reminds me that my map of the road ahead is just slowly lining up with His. This detour will not deter me from my plans and His plans. The old is becoming new. Crumbling old shingles are being ripped off and beautiful new high quality materials are being installed on the roof...and on my life...and maybe on yours...

My dorm floor at North Central Bible College had a prayer room, Christian friends, and a Resident Advisor who challenged us to grow as men of God. Campus life at UWSP was more like Reed College.

The launch doesn’t mean that you never come back to your parents’ home. The launch doesn’t mean your childhood home is any less special or personal. Home becomes even more precious when you realize that it’s no longer yours, not in the same way.

This was Thursday morning, April 25th! (8 months til Christmas) It was the storm before the calm. By Friday after work we were in the 70's and breezy with no snow in sight! I had some nice help and personally worked 40 hours between Friday night through the weekend and through Tuesday night.

Having big sis there was more of a comfort than I would have ever admitted. Sheri and her roomie, Tonilee from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, had a great room location on second floor Miller Hall right next to the skyway to the chapel. She got a really long cord for her little piano phone—Sheri and Toni were music majors—and we would pull it all the way out through the dorm hallway and into the main hallway to call home.

Did you see? I picked up my roofing permit today. The big roofing weekend is not until May 4/5 but Wade and I are going to tackle the garage and small entry roofs this weekend. I've got friends bringing a pile of equipment by over the next two days. The permit is posted in the front door window. It is ON like Donkey Kong!
