The work of the secret Master of Ceremonies

In the midst of deadlines and sleep deprivation, many things these past couple weeks have felt asymptotically close to perfection. One of these is my "randomly assigned" roommate.

To steal a line from Sherlock, she raises the IQ of the whole cohort. She provides me with the perfect excuse to procrastinate on homework by being an excellent (and continually surprising) conversationalist.

And she brings so much laughter into my life. SO MUCH. Guys, this picture is never going to not be funny.

[for the record, it's coffee grounds]
In friendship...we think we have chosen our peers. In reality a few years' difference in the dates of our births, a few more miles between certain houses, the choice of one university instead of another...the accident of a topic being raised or not raised at a first meeting--any of these chances might have kept us apart. But, for a Christian, there are, strictly speaking no chances. A secret master of ceremonies has been at work. Christ, who said to the disciples, "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you," can truly say to every group of Christian friends, "Ye have not chosen one another but I have chosen you for one another." The friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another out. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.  [C.S. Lewis]
I am amazed, all the time, at the quality and beauty of the friends who God has brought into my life.  My heart is brim-full of joy... and this is only a taste of what's to come.
