II Corinthians 12

I will not boast about myself except in my weaknesses. Verse 5

Hm. I don't do that very often. 

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions. For when I am weak, then I am strong. Verses 9 and 10

Perfect in weakness. Weak, then I'm strong. The Christian life is full of oxymorons. Unfortunately, sometimes morons as well. But the thing is, we're all morons. We've mocked God whether we know it or not. Whether we admit it or not. It's truth. We boast constantly of all of our own accomplishments which is nothing compared to what God has done. How often do we talk about our weaknesses? And brag about them? I certainly don't. But it's only when we come before God, knowing we are nothing, that we realize (granted, only partially) what he has done for us. If God gave us what we deserve, it would be hell. Yeah, I said it. H-E-double toothpicks. That's what we deserve. But it isn't what God offers us. He offers us redemption when we least deserve it. I don't claim to understand it. And I don't claim I ever will. I don't understand alot of what He does. Wow. What did I do to deserve such a saving power in my life? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Yes, a post.

So...I've been thinking for some time that I should blog. But I figure that if The Simple Life has activity once again, that's my cue to login to blogger once again. Not alot happening lately. Its pretty quiet on campus. I know of four other girls in my dorm; and there is generally three other students in the cafeteria when I eat there. But I kind of really like it. :) Towards the end of the school year, I tend to just get sick of people. 

I miss the prairie. The beautiful, never ending prairie. Sad fact is that it does end. And replaced by concrete. Boring, disgustingly gray concrete. And this boring disgustingly gray concrete gets even worse when it is road construction season. 

However, despite the lack of prairie, I have been uber happy today. You see I'm planning this awesome surprise for one of my friends. So that randomly gets me to smile. Alot. Oh, David tends to make me smile too. :)

In other news, my mum is coming here this weekend! I get to see her Friday. So we'll get to hang out. :) Saturday night is Jessie's graduation party. Then my birthday is Sunday. We'll go to my church -- it's just David and me singing. I'll move into Riverwoods on Monday night. I'll have my computer because I'm the media/logistics person. So I might be able to update ya'll. Probably just on the weekends though. Well until then...

Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Colossians 3:12-14

For mum

I think it cut some of it off. And the voice and video doesn't match up. Oh well. You get the point. HAPPY EARLY MOTHER'S DAY!!

My first flowers

Presented by David Wehr.

I like horticulture.

Ah summer...

Well, classes all done. Ok, that's a lie. I am doing may-term. But it is only one class for three weeks. I'm kind of excited actually. I did make it through my art history final. It was a crazy couple hours actually taking the tests but we made it through. :) But science. My first and last college science class. :) I am able to stay in my dorm. I wasn't sure if I would ahve to move across campus, but I don't!! So excited. I would hate having to move across campus for three weeks. And then packing all over again. Well today, we had our 3.5 hour lecture. The prof. gave us a break at 30 mins and then every hour. And for the last two hours we went outside! And for our two hour lab we just went outside and identified some plants/animals. So, here's some pictures of last times with friends before they left...

They're crazy, but cute. :)

More crazy. 

Commanding the water.

I will crash soon.

So I have an art history test 5.5 hours. I have had two monsters. Still many slides to get through.
Hopefully I don't fall asleep. Eight hours staying awake and then I can completely crash. Then I will be done with school. For a weekend at least. Then may term... But for now. Art history.

Prayers appreciated.
