Summer and Tea Parties

It is getting to be the end of the school year. YAY!!!!! This means last minute paper writings/finishings/editings, prepping for finals, seeking out opportunities for extra credit, and trying to hold onto my sanity. The past few weeks have been slightly eventful and more than a little frustrating. I have shed my fair share of angry tears, and taken off more time from work than I would like in order to complete things. I have been in a constant state of negativity, but my Father has preserved me and given me strength to make it through the most trying of days. Now it is down to finals week. Two days, two extra credit assignments, and four finals. That is all that stands between me and a summer of freedom.

To celebrate my upcoming free time, I'm in the processes of obtaining a Pinterest account. I really don't know a whole bunch about it, but I've heard nothing but wonderful things about it, so I'm quite excited. =)

On a different note, I hosted a tea party yesterday for the junior high girls at my church. We had an overabundance of food (I'm pretty sure the two of us that planned it were overcompensating for a dismal tea party we went to last summer...), seven types of teas, and six adorable girls. It was probably the greatest tea party ever. We totally played Just Dance 3 and hung my mom's good silver spoons from our noses. One of the girls accidentally stuck her face into a bowl of soup in one of her fits of giggles. Despite our attempts to make it semi-fancy, it was...not quite there. But that doesn't even matter because each of the girls had a blast, and that is what we were going for.

Here's to a happy summer!!!

Ephesians 3:14-19 NIV
For this reason I kneel before the Father from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth drives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power though his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
