Memories...

Last Thursday was the last day of classes--I can hardly believe that we only have our week of finals left! Then, we are done!

As I was reflecting on this past school year, I was so blessed to be able to think that I can be here at Weimar. I have been here for a year and a half already--and I would have never traded this experience with anything else. I remember my first semester....I was so scared! Coming from homeschool, I didn't know what to expect--but being here, I have been challenged spiritually and academically. I am so blessed to be able to go to a school that puts an emphasis on school combined with physical labor, and also with health. I have been so blessed to know each student here, and to be able to be involved with the outreach here--helping our community in practical ways so they may see Jesus!

This past semester has been busy, yet so much fun! A few quick updates...A couple Sabbaths ago, the college had outdoor church on a lake--so beautiful!....Dr. Nedley has officially moved to Weimar....And last Thursday, we had our memories night, where we ate supper together, and shared memories of the past year. Here are a few pictures of that:

And I think a good end to the school week was Sabbath--we had some students over to our house for lunch, and then several of us went on a hike!

Stacey, Emory, Brenna, Kelly, and I



An amazing view! The river you see down there is the American River--by running some of the way, we eventually made it down there!



At the river. The water was ice cold--I think I will wait till summer to get in. :)

Stacey contemplating jumping in--she eventually did! Everyone braved the cold water except me. ;)

One week of tests to go! Please pray for everyone here as we go into finals week.

Here is a thought I will close with:

"Thy mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O Lord, thou preservest man and beast. How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house;
and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. For with thee is the fountain of life:
in thy light shall we see light. O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart." Psalms 36:5-10
