Now done with 7/10 weeks of winter term, technically 10 1/2 if you count finals (which thank God were not pushed back because of this dreadful wintry weather... is it spring yet?!?!).
Feeling a little heartbroken right now, not only because both the US men's and women's hockey teams fell short of gold in Sochi for however many times too many, but even more so that one of the older members from my church congregation has gone home to meet the Lord only last week or so.
Our church is having a memorial service next weekend, and Dad and I spent some time tonight picking songs to give the family some more choices for the service. The man was in pretty bad shape and it was only a matter of time. Where he is now, his body has been fully restored to better than any time he was in his prime here on Earth. I couldn't hold back while we were picking songs because he liked me a lot, and got real joy from my singing in the praise band. I'd be crazy to not come back from college for the service next weekend.
I really can't let all my insane homework get the better of me when family is more important. I know sometimes that schoolwork has consumed virtually all of my time, and my parents did remind me, with good reason, that sometimes you just have to put that stuff aside. I really hope I don't forget that, especially with just how much a biology major demands of my time and effort.
On a lesser note, I have finally been able to return to coloring in cells for the next batch of 'Clans' pages. I hope to have about half a dozen done and ready to update by spring break, with the last half dozen pages of the chapter in by the beginning of summer.
I've taken a lengthy break from coursework this evening, so I better get back on track. Feel free to offer up your prayers if you feel so led-- but even more importantly pray for the family as they get ready for the service. I greatly appreciate your support, both as fans and as a community.
