Celebrating our dearly loved Jennifer's birthday was a nice break from the blasted week of studying I've just come from. Chandra and I arrived a little late due to work but there was still tons of pizza and s'mores left. We're not fans of the cold pizza so leave it to Craig to cook up some fire roasted pizza in the most literal way. Sooo good!
As finals are soon approaching, I'm studying like a mad woman, palming through all my notes and vigorously reading through the chapters of my text book. This mostly makes me happy but also makes me sad. When I'm reminded how widely accepted abortion is here my heart breaks over and over.
"Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what it wants."
My sister is such a beautiful young woman, if only she knew that. I guess that's how God views us through the blood of Christ. We must all remember our true identity and not believe the lies of the prowling lion.
I'm blessed to have such a great family; instead of one dad and one mom, I have multiple. Steve has worked hard for our family to enjoy living the "high life." He also allows me to live at home, he calls it something like "failure to launch," but I'm not really sure what he means by that. ;)
P.S. - My mom got him this awesome tequila shooter.
I ran out of dissecting gloves last week and forgot to purchase more over the weekend so I decided to steal a pair of food service gloves from work. A little too big but definitely worth it. I dissected this brain 4 weeks ago... it's very ripe and squishy but the worst part is since it's easy to handle it's also easy to forget not to bring it too close to your face; the smell isn't pleasant.
My beautiful sister is growing up! I can't believe that she is becoming a real person; she has her own thoughts, ideas, and goals! It's amazing to see her being shaped! My prayer is that she would become who she is, and that truth is found only in the Lord. I love her more than I could ever express. Happy Birthday little dude!
