the time has come!

I'm going in for the kill!!!!!
Pray for me, sing a song for me, dance the hula, eat good food....do whatever it is that will help me get a good score on this painful GRE!
Tomorrow, FRIDAY from 12:30-4:30 I'll be using every bit of smartness that I have!

I'll be back to blogging on Monday.

Love you all!

(yay! Charles left me a comment!!!! So cool!)



My mom invited me over to her house for dinner tomorrow night!-----weird. I got invited home.

reflecting back

I came across something I wrote last year. I wrote this while I was living at L'Abri and working through my thoughts on God, or thoughts without God. I had tea with Prisca Sandri (Francis Schaeffer's daughter) every Monday and this was something I wrote after meeting with her.
It's interesting to read back on meaningful moments in your life. It's not theology or solid doctrine, but I'm so thankful for the way she expanded my thinking.

Tea with Prisca.
How do you overcome the ugliness that you see everywhere and the ugliness that you feel? How do you sit in that ugliness and KNOW that God is still good and that God still loves you?
I THINK I can say that bad things are not thrown by the hand of God. I think I can say now, that God USES bad things, but he doesn’t cause them in my life. Prisca told me to seek out the things that display the character of God. Look at the mountains. Look at the order in the world around me. Watch the sunset. Examine a flower or a vegetable garden. Watch love grow between people or the birds flying around and around. When life seems overwhelming and chaotic, NOTICE that God’s order still exists and goes on and on. God’s character is always displayed and I can notice it if I look behind the pain and confusion.

I think she has a good point. AND I don’t feel like this would be denying my pain. It is just choosing to keep my eyes on God.



this www.weffriddles.com is awesome and disgusting at the same time. my head is in pain and i'm terribly distracted.
somehow i have made it to level 16.


please don't ever overlook the wonder of a listening heart



I figured it was time to get serious. I've studied hard. I can only do my best. I am officially registered to take the GRE.
I'm freaked out!!!
I'm doomed!!!



cookie night

No Mom's allowed!!! No dinner, just cookie dough! Hide-and-Seek inside the house! --In the dark!
Dancing, dancing, dancing.
WAY too much laughter.
Sometimes the best moments in life are much more accessable than we think.

These are my girls. No more diapers....just much much MUCH more goofiness than imaginable!

My role has switched from "The Best Babysitter in the Whole World" to Friend. You girls remind me to chill out, to dance a little...well, okay...to dance A LOT!
You think I'm cool, which makes me feel awesome!

You're all grown up!!! And I think you're teaching me that I still need to grow up more...

...but not without a little choreography:)

You girls make up the better part of my life.
