I awoke Sunday morning to my wonderful alarm clock to get up and go to the 9:00 service at ChristWay Community Church in Ootewah, TN (hilarious, yes?). I was sitting by myself when I noticed that my Residential Director (Todd) and his wife (Michelle) sat down up front. So I went and sat with them the whole service. Of all churches the could go to, the go to one about 20 or so minutes from Cleveland. So they offered my rides to church on Sundays.
After getting back and eating an okay lunch, a group of us went cliff diving. And that was it….”wait, did he just say ‘cliff diving’?” YES! We went about 30 minutes up close to Athens, TN around a paper mill on the Chattahoochee and to some cliffs right over the river. It was pretty high up. I jumped off the high cliff and the lower cliff and it was freakin’ sweet. It took your stomach like crazy. After two jumps I was bushed and let everyone do the swing. So it was pretty extreme and fun.
After wearing ourselves out, we raced for dinner and then chapel service which was the best so far. I started to feel God’s presence more as these past few weeks have been rough. The music was amazing as a girl sang “Sing to the King” and the “Majesty”. So the weekend was pretty eventful and fun. Now to homework!!!!!
Did I mention I lived on Spooner St.? Yeah, you get used to random people spooning you. Just kidding!

A nice view of one of the smaller cliffs we jumped off of into the “Hoochee”.
