This is an amazing school. I have some amazing classes. I have some amazing professors. I am learning some amazing things.
My History of Design II class is absolutely amazing. My life will never be the same because of that class. This is perhaps the best learning experience I’ve ever had, and possibly ever have. The things I read about in that class are so brilliant and about exactly what I thought life could and should be. Learning about how the world was and what has gone wrong with our society and how our society has gone wrong, has given me so much hope to make a difference someday. I can’t wait to get out there and do something to this world. I’m not sure I could make any greater sin than to continue living as if I did not have the knowledge I have now. Professor Miller has been such a blessing to my life.
But in combination with that, and the artistic and spiritual inspiration I get from Professor Carl, and the historical insight I get from Dr. Halverson that I can relate to my life, and the joy of spending time outdoors golfing from Professor Jenkins, are so much a gift from God that I’m astounded by almost beyond words. I’m so busy this semester, but I’m so blessed with what I’m busy doing. Golf class is over, but I used to spend two hours, two days a week outside hitting a golf ball, basking in the glory of the outdoors God created. I spend three hours, two days a week painting. I hate painting. But I get to spend three hours exploring the creativity that God gave me, and potential meanings of putting a brush in paint and putting it on a canvas. I may be terrible at painting, but that doesn’t have to hinder me from the revelations that God can give me through just obeying what He has for me to do. And with Professor Carl emphasizing God through our art and life, it is difficult to not see God while spreading oils mixed with a medium on some kind of surface. The words he reads, the words he speaks are invaluable to my life. The God he shows us is such an amazing God, and I’m so blessed to have an intructor who desires to display that to me.
