Hey All,
I'm not gonna lie, this week has stunk for sure! So many things seem to be going wrong all at once and I cannot do anything about it. I hate feeling so helpless, like my world is spinning out of control. Why do bad things happen in bunches? I know all things work for good but still! It stinks to be stuck in the middle of this yuckiness. Please be praying for my family and me during this difficult time.

It looks like I might be able to make a trip to Brownsville, TX this summer to visit the school I want to attend and also make a quick trip to Mexico maybe. I'm SO excited!!! Things with the language school are still at a stand still at the moment. I have yet to hear back from them but God's timing is perfect!

Here are a few pictures of my friend Jacquie and me. She came over and spent the night Sunday and we had a blast. We got the camera and made silly faces, ate fortune cookies, popcorn, and 8 day old brownies (don't worry, we're perfectly fine!) and danced to loud music until Mom made us be quiet. Ah, the joys of being a teenager! Although I'm thinkin' even when I'm not anymore, I'll still do stuff like this! All in all, it was an amazing night. We made memories that I will treasure forever!

In other news, I have been learning more and more Spanish. Today I tried to knock out the future tense. I already know present, imperfect, and preterit and need to know future. So many times I wanna say stuff but can't because I don't know it. Hopefully I'll be able to retain things. Another fun thing about this 501 verb book is that it has Spanish proverbs! One of my favorites is: "Comer para vivir y no vivir para comer" (Eat to live and not live to eat!) Don't know why that strikes me as funny but it does :P

I found a verse in Malachi that I used to comfort someone this week. It's Malachi 4:2 and says "To you who fear My name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; and you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves." I love how it says 'with healing in His wings'. Such a descriptive phrase!

Anyway, I hope you all are having a blessed night. Thanks for listening to the random ramblings of a crazy gringa. Dios te bendiga mucho hoy! Cuidate hermanos.


  1. Thanks so much for sharing that verse. What a comfort to think of the compassion of the God we serve! He is so good!
    Love you :)

  2. Dont worry you can have nights like these for the rest of your life. ;) I love to act silly and crazy with my daughter and she loves it to.
