After being away at Link Year for three months it was nice to sleep in my own bed. Right when I arrived in San Diego, my dad, sister, brother and mom were wating to pick me up and took be straight to my favorite taco shop Robertos. It had been to long since I had divulged into a delicious California Burrito but man, did I savor that taste.
The next day, the 23rd, was my brother Jordans birthday and also the last day I'd have with my eldest brother Patrick before he and his wife took off for Dallas for Christmas. It was a good day hanging out with them and having our own little sibling Christmas before they left. Christmas Eve it is has been a tradtion of my extended family on my moms side to get together which is always a good time with good food. It is also a tradtion to take a walk on the beach on Christmas evening. Now believe be when I tell you that this sunset was one of the best sunsets I have ever seen and I've seen so beautiful ones. Here's some proof...
As I am planning on attending Balor Unisversity next fall it was exciting to hear that they were going to be playing in the Holiday Bowl in San Diego on Dec. 27th against UCLA. Because I was going to be in San Diego, I wanted to go. Fortunetly, my family got tickets through my brother and we all got to go! Baylor beat down on UCLA 49-26. It was a fun game to be at, especially being a Baylor fan. On the 26th, the day before the game we had the privlage of eating at the Baylor UCLA Bridgepoint Education Luncheon. This was a neat experience but my one regret was not getting a picture with all of the Baylor cheerleaders. Don't judge.
And on the 29th I was able to support my good friend at his mother's funeral. Although it is a sad time and I didn't know his mom I was super encouraged by what was shared and from what I heard, Christ is living in this woman!
I am currently in the Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport waiting for a friend to pick me up to go to snatch some lunch and then off to Passion 2013. I am so excited for this conference and meeting new people. I'm sure I'll have plenty to say after. Stay tuned.
Until next time.
