You lose control when you hold too tight

It’s amazing how true that has held to my life lately.

Week eight is almost done and I’m still not quite sure how I got here or how I got here so quickly, but I’m here. The times when I try to hold too tight to my schedule and getting all of my work done, I lose control of everything. Sometimes, the best thing that I can do is just force myself to go to bed instead of staying up to do work. Oh well.

The retreat last weekend was sweet. I enjoyed the time with my girls, the boys enjoyed their time in the wilderness, the small group enjoyed being leadership-free for the weekend. All seems to still be rolling along quite well, however.

And, now, issue 5 of the Voice is ready to be put together, which is still so strange. It’s become such an incredible, regular part of my routine. It’s always such a delight to see what people are writing and then be able to put together the whole package.

I’m really ready to be done with school. I feel like it’s just taking time away from other things I could be doing, and though I want to quit (honestly), I’ll still finish and hopefully, finish strong. It just takes a lot of motivation sometimes.

Anyway, I’m here to drop off some more pictures from Lauren and Greg’s wedding and issue 4 of the Voice, in case you’re wondering what went into it. My story about women wanting to be traditional that I wrote last spring made it in, in its entirety. It’s an article that I put a lot of work into, so that’s exciting.

Here you go…

The reason for the occasion, Lauren and Greg. She’s so pretty.

My best friend, Laura, and her husband, Andy. They got married a month after Lauren and Greg.

Chris and I at the wedding. I’m not quite sure what my face is doing, but it’s weird.

Much better. You can barely see me at all. 🙂

And Issue #4 of The Student Voice!
