". . . to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to comfort all who mourn,
and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord
for the display of his splendor." Isaiah 61

The College Life: A Tale of Poor Decisions and Great Fun
This is sun. In Kirksville. In the winter! It's really a miracle. And, on a Sunday afternoon, there is no way a group of crazy college kids wouldn't take advantage of such a miracle. The idea to play ultimate frisbee was had. So we did.
This sun was very deceptive though. . .
Because (although you see Alexander wearing shorts here), it was a cold, cold, cold day. Very cold.
Liz and Shandra were ready! Which lasted about 5 minutes.
I was official photographer and guardian of the stuff. Cell phones, ID cards, and keys are the staples of a college student.
Unfortunately, this official photographer discovered that
her hands stayed much warmer inside her pockets. So there aren't many action shots. :)
Yes. Yes, he is wet and muddy. Fun, huh?
This is Jason. Poor guy - he was so close!
Jason after the fact.
So yes. This is how we, as college students in Kirksville, spend our January afternoons. As they say, "Make hay while they sun shines (even if it's still freezing cold)."
