yesterday i went to pick up my books for the upcoming semester. there are almost twice as many as last semester! yikes. this is going to a challenging spring. but also very good in so many ways. alex left her job, at least part of her job, the part that made her wake up at 4 am and work till 7 pm. not fun. we are so happy to have more time together, and we want to make it count. studying, praying, creating, cooking. it’s time we started acting like newlyweds. for all those starting new semesters, i pray you it will be challenging to the point of growth, not the point of insanity. johnathan edwards’s resolutions are great to read the get you going for the new year. just google it.
