Spring Semester is Underway!

"We shall never find happiness by looking at our prayers, our doings, or our feelings; IT IS WHAT JESUS IS, not what we are, that gives rest to the soul." — Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Before the semester began, I found myself in a coffee shop downton and was able to do some reading and journaling. Sometimes it's good to "come away and rest" as you re-group and prepare for another semester.

So thankful for the soul-rest that only Christ can provide in the busyness of studying, practicing, quizzes, tests, and just general college life. While it certainly is satisying getting good grades and progressing in musical pursuits, true happiness is found in Christ and that is what I need to continually be reminded of.

Mmm, looks like a yummy treat! I hope the semester goes well for you, Cheri. It is nice to have some time to re-group and prepare for the tasks ahead.

Thanks, Laura! The first week (though essentially not quite a full one) went well and I'm anticipating a really good semester.
