February 2007

Along came February
so wet and cold,
still winter it was,
twas getting quite old.

February rolled around with it sparkling blandness. I did a few outings here and there, but nothing too amazingly spectacular. My mom and I drove to Eugene to see my cousin, a EBC student, on her birthday. My dad and I enjoyed a wonderful father-daughter dinner with my graduating class.

And we chipped away in rehearsals for A Midsummer Night's Dream, the director sweating admist trying to spend time with each member of the cast to better their parts. We sure worked hard on that play. Sometimes cast members would be on vacation, and we all had to scramble to rehearse the scene regardless. Or someone would forget it was rehearsal day, and we had to endure the stressful atmosphere that exists when impatience rules the stage. But we pulled it off, and practices paid off.

And that was February in a chestnut shell. March, April, May coming soon. And soon will the Journey of 2007 get deeper.
Farewell friends.

Introduction: January 2007

So I was thinking it'd be interesting just to have a blog to update everyday and post what God has been showing me. I graduated in June 2007 from high school, and have been taking a year off just working and seeking the Lord. It's definently been a journey and a trying adventure. And since its that time of year, I'll fill this weeks posts with a 'breakdown of the year', sort of like a newsletter.

Here it goes.....starting with January.

The year 2007 began as my family and I were at church listening to our church's annual 'Prophecy Update', a lowdown of the years adventures, specifically pertaining to Biblical prophecy. It is amazing how so many things are happening that God predicted would happen. It is just another sign that He is real.

Thus, January 2007 rolled around, and with it, the last half of my senior year of high school. Also with it came my favorite school subject- Shakespeare's Greatest Hits, otherwise known as SGH, a homeschool drama program that spans over three months. And as it began, the week that followed was filled with auditions. This year, we performed Midsummer Night's Dream and Othello, two of Shakespeare's great masterpieces. I was exceedingly joyful when I was cast in my favorite role yet-Nick Bottom the weaver! God was so awesome to allow me to get me that role. And as January drew to a close, I began rehearsals with 16 of my castmates for Midsummer Night's Dream.
