So I’m studying away tonight, trying to wrap my brain around Christological concepts such as eternality, eternal generation, the virgin birth, impeccibility, etc, when I hear NOISE from somewhere in our dorm. Uproarious laughter. Shrieks. Giggles. Higher shrieks! I finally couldn’t stand it anymore (I need SILENCE to study big stuff) so went out to investigate. I had my suspicions as to who it was. It wasn’t! It was a SENIOR from last year who is visiting. She was in a room with two other girls, and they were doing the “throw a gummy worm at the ceiling and watch it stick” thing. I burst out laughing. This senior’s ceiling was covered in gummy bears last year. All I could do was LAUGH. Some things never change, apparently! A gummy worm fell off the ceiling and landed on the floor. They grabbed it and threw it back up. It stuck. Along with a clump of hair from the floor. I LAUGHED again. Maybe it’s not funny. Maybe it’s just my over-tired brain. I don’t know.
On to serious subjects. The virgin birth. People say it’s ridiculous and not possible for God to make His Son in the womb of a virgin. But hey, God made the first man, Adam, without a man OR a woman! Who’s to say He couldn’t do it again, this time with a little “help” from a woman?! COOL! (that was just to prove that yes, I AM learning something!)
