The Perfect Weekend


Vintage lunch: yummy quiche and salad, talked about Spiritual friendships, truly a place of great rest

Give a year meeting: 3rd one of the school year, talked about dying to our expectations and selves when it comes to missions

Black rock summit hike: rock scramble at the top, first outdoors club adventure, two cars one got lost, 0.5 mile hike, beautiful sunset, laughing at sam for wearing shorts and a tshirt in 50 degree weather with wind, building character, lost keys for a hot second but ended up being in the trunk, sam was nice and dropped me off downtown real mvp.

Hockey game: first and possibly last because someone bought the rink, sad because it was really fun to watch, I got really into it (no surprise there), we won 7-1 go hoos, hayley/jenny/sam all came to watch, fun mini house outing

Worship night at 120: harley’s cg organized it and we stopped by for an hour before leaving, ate a chocolate chip cookie, nothing quite like ending the night worshiping Jesus ❤


Hidden Rocks (climbing): Got off the waitlist for this adventure when I was at the hockey game, met at echols at 8am to drive with two other guys to Hidden Rocks out near Harrisonburg, beautiful drive and weather, saw people using a buggy, got lost a couple of times, talked about how climbing is the best, walked 20 min to get to the rock formation and my oh my was it beautiful, it had been so long since I had climbed outside and my soul was singing the entire time, Tristan anchored all of the 4 climbs and was so patient with us even though he forgot his climbing shoes (sad face), never have i met such a mature first year in my life, completed 2/4 climbs and headed back to cville.

Lied out on my yoga mat on my front porch when I got back home because the weather was just too nice to stay inside, the outdoors has honestly been the cure to my sickness. I’ve never healed faster in my life.


Church: talked about realtionships… classic

Hotcakes with Emily: got our free tea and caught up on life

IX Park and popsicles: lying out on blankets in the sun with good company is the best

NICU: shadowed a nicu nurse for 4 hours and LOVED it.

If every weekend was like this, I would die happy. I came to the realization that I need to move to a place with warmer weather and a great outdoors life. Thank you God for such a blessed weekend!


Psalm 27

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation;
    whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
    of whom shall I be afraid?

When evildoers assail me
    to eat up my flesh,
my adversaries and foes,
    it is they who stumble and fall.

Though an army encamp against me,
    my heart shall not fear;
though war arise against me,
    yet I will be confident.

One thing have I asked of the Lord,
    that will I seek after:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
    and to inquire in his temple.

For he will hide me in his shelter
    in the day of trouble;
he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
    he will lift me high upon a rock.

And now my head shall be lifted up
    above my enemies all around me,
and I will offer in his tent
    sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make melody to the Lord.

Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;
    be gracious to me and answer me!
You have said, “Seek my face.”
My heart says to you,
    “Your face, Lord, do I seek.”
    Hide not your face from me.
Turn not your servant away in anger,
    O you who have been my help.
Cast me not off; forsake me not,
    O God of my salvation!
10 For my father and my mother have forsaken me,
    but the Lord will take me in.

11 Teach me your way, O Lord,
    and lead me on a level path
    because of my enemies.
12 Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;
    for false witnesses have risen against me,
    and they breathe out violence.

13 I believe that I shall lookf]”>[f] upon the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living!
14 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong, and let your heart take courage;
    wait for the Lord!
