One more down.

Another skill test down.

Cannot say how relieving a circle around pass is.

Worn out. Trying not to be Sick. And Happy.

God's grace is sufficient even in my weakness.

Today is a Gift

I like to plan. I like to know what's coming ahead to think about the days after school. But the simple and beautiful truth is that I have no idea. The blessing is that it teaches me to depend upon the One who does know and does see what I cannot, and it also helps me to focus on the present.

Life is often like a race. Today that race is preparing for exams. Pharmacology and physical exams. Fun stuff!

In the midst of that I must learn to recognize grace, recognize the gift of being able to learn, the gift of today...not looking forward to a future work, but embracing the life that God has given me now.

Just a Blip on Nursing School

I laughed almost the whole drive home today though it was just me in the car. That's how it goes after an all day GI lab;)

I have the most fantastic instructors.

And, I learn alot from a scenario that I think is real. 

I Got a Text ...

...A Happy Birthday text from Africa this week. Thank you, Memere! I love you too. (I hope you will see this soon;)

This is a Comment...

...that wouldn't fit in a comment box.

Because saying a sister is a gift is too generic.

She's one of heaven's BEST gifts.

Bri, I'm ever so thankful for every mountain climbed with you, for every moment that you would linger in the bathroom to listen and give your ever-so-matter-of-fact advice, for all the prayers we've prayed together, for the grand times sledding (even if it was at 2AM), the quiet moments under stars together whether walking to the house from the barn, or sitting on the beach, or speed walking from the bus stop to school before sunrise (when we learned that we couldn't just forgo the season sticker on our bus passes), for all the peaches and apricots we stuffed ourselves with, for the dishes we've deliberated over, for the bunnies and chickens we've shared, for the sermon prep sessions, the wandering airport boutiques to find honey sticks, and planting seeds ...memories are forever.
And memories ARE gifts.

Thank you.

But you've given me more than memories.

You've taught me so much about happiness, about joy in everyday, about contentment, about trusting when you can't see, about surrendering when it doesn't make sense, about living a life of constant giving, about loving no matter what.

Thank you.

I can hardly wait till you get home.  :)
