I read this today and smiled. I think that Archbishop, Oscar Romero, was onto something when he wrote this... pictures of my trip to Virginia/the District to come later!

This is what we are about:
We plant seeds that one day will grow.
We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise.
We lay foundations that will need further development.
We provide yeast that produces effects beyond our capabilities.

We may never see the end results,
but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker.
We are workers, not master builders,
ministers, not messiahs.

Someone mentioned this week that my blog portrays my life as perfect.

To clarify: that's far from the truth.

I enjoy writing about the highlights of my life on this lovely little blog, and I tend to keep the lowlights in my journal.

So, in case you were wondering... I am far from perfection. Well, truth be told, perfection isn't even something I strive for anymore. When you're covered by the blood of perfection, it transforms you. It can't help but change you.

The Lord is up to something. And I have a hunch that it is bigger than I or Briauna or Amanda could even imagine. He's on the move and He's coming. Do you know Him? Are you following Him? He's the only treasure that will ever treasure you back and he's worth more than life.

Done :)

For weeks now, it seemed as if the end was near, but never in sight. This morning, I tell you the truth, my Senior 1 semester is officially over :)

The semester didn't end, however, before a little adventure... down to Tucson for the ASU vs UofA game!

Mike and Adrienne.

We boarded the bus on the eve of our largest final in the history of Nursing School, and studied-ish most of the way there :)

Gold was grossly out-numbered. *Note the cluster of Gold in the section across the field :)

I kind of like them. Nope, that's a lie. I like them a lot.

Ahh! End of the 4th quater and we were TIED! The game went into double overtime! && we won :) with a blocked field goal nonetheless!

Mike definitely taught me about offsides and false start!

We finally made it home; 2 hours later than we were anticipating, slept for 5 hours... and then showed up for our 100 question-combination-final!

After moving out of the Macs, taking a nap, and a shower... I celebrated my new-found freedom with these lovely people :)

5 couples from church + Ben and Jesse and I :) we all got together, and cooked dinner and shared a meal together... and laughs, and drinks, and games and good times too.

I adore her.

Davide and Mallory hosted the dinner... and kicked butt in cards ;)

I kind of love her. And so does he.

Soo yummy. Yay for married/engaged/dating friends who are cool enough to include us :) Can't wait for our Bible-study to start!

Mmk, off to clean and organize and hopefully hike!
