Here's what's been going on lately. . .
We went to a Matt Maher concert at the end of January. He has a lot of songs that I love like Lord, I Need You and Because He Lives and Your Grace is Enough and well, I could go on and on. That concert was exactly what we needed at that moment. When he put the guitar down and sat at the piano and played and sang by himself I could hardly hold back the tears. So many confirmations from Scripture and in the lyrics from his songs to put our minds and hearts at rest in what was and is a very stressful time for us.
Valentine's weekend: We finally used the movie tickets I got for my 40th birthday and went to see The Finest Hours. We had a breakfast date and got some good chocolate at Whole Foods. We also used a coupon for a free pay-per-view from Dish and watched Everest. Nothing like climbing the world's tallest mountain and freezing to death.
Three more weeks to go and then I get a week off before my next class starts. Next up is Teaching Reading in the Content Areas. After that I have 3 classes to register for in the summer, graduation to apply for, and a job to hopefully get for the fall.
I've been working pretty much every day with the exception of President's Day. This whole week I'll be in kindergarten and with my friends at Fruit Valley.
I feel all I write about anymore is school and work, but really, that about sums up my life at this point. I mean, I still have a few Christmas things that haven't been put away yet, like my Willow Tree Nativity and a few printables that never got changed to the ones for Valentine's Day. Maybe someday my blog will be exciting again. Until next time.
