be a ra... say it three times fast.


today, all the ra's wore these hats to encourage others to 
"be a ra."
[really funny to say outloud]

I stuck to wearing the hat backwards...
one guy even told me I looked "funky."
[I'm assuming compliment, no need to correct me.]

I would show you what I look like with the hat facing forwards,
but no...
it's too good for the blogosphere.



this is what my hair looks like after wearing the hat for a while...
super nice.



today:

-reading
-counseling practice
-meeting for all the ra's
[where we talk about how awesome we look in our hats]
-watching some sister wives with a beautiful lady
-and loving this:

I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten-
the great locust and the young locust,
the other locusts and the locust swarm-
my great army that I sent among you.
You will have plenty to eat, until you are full,
and you will praise the name of the Lord your God,
who has worked wonders for you;
never again will my people be shamed.
Joel 2:25-26


I love that God has redeemed even the time I've spent 
going my own way. 
His mercy is so great.

snow.

I know I'm like... the only one,
but I hate snow.





so right this second I'm cuddling into a pile of fresh-out-the-dryer laundry
and watching an episode of bones.

[will I fold it eventually? who knows?]




here's to hot chocolate, books, hot laundry...
anything I can enjoy inside today.

super nice.





I have a dream schedule for this semester. 

This morning, 
I woke up on my own
[meaning no alarm needed, what!?]
read my Bible
went for a run
ate strawberries and a cheesestick
and have ample time now for research, writing,
and getting ready for class.



Tonight:
I'm taking my first apologetics course, 
and the verse that keeps running through my head is

Lord, I believe! Help my unbelief!
Mark 9:24


so we'll see how it goes!

back at school




painted some door decorations for my girls. 

I love the blank slate feeling of a new semester.
Might be even more excited if I had actually bought some school supplies.

oops.


Maybe this will be the semester I bring my laptop to class and actually take notes.
[yeah...right.]

just so thankful



1. that God loves me. and I can know him.
2. that Greg wants to marry me. 
[blown away]



also, I'm eating hummus and carrots,
looking at the ocean,
and plugging away at my thesis
in an aqua bedroom.



so blessed.
