Oh how I love Fridays! Even on days like today when I have to work it's still great because I work 8 hours instead of 9, which makes the day seem to go by much quicker and I have the whole weekend ahead of me.

I'm thinking this weekend is going to fly by. Tonight we are cooking out a friends house then heading to an LCA football game. Tomorrow from 8-12 I have a review course for the PE exam. A 4 hour class on Saturday mornings is kind of rough, especially when you work all week, but the class is totally worth it. It has been so helpful in remembering how to do all this stuff I learned in college but haven't done since. And there is only one class left after tomorrow. But I still have so much to study, so once class is over I need to start waking up early on Saturdays and spending that 4 hours actually studying.

The rest of the weekend will be spent babysitting. Kind of. I say kind of because its really just making sure the kids get fed and go to sleep at some point. One of the boys is in 8th grade, the other is in 5th or 6th. So they should be pretty easy. They really just need someone who can take them where they need to go and make sure they eat and sleep. So its really just hanging out with them. Their older brother is a senior at LCA so we'll probably get to hangout with him and his friends too (all of whom we are pretty close to) which will be fun. I'm looking forward to it.

Besides that I will probably spend the rest of the weekend studying. I know, my life is so exciting. But it will all be worth it when I pass this test and never have to take a test again!

Also, on a completely unrelated note, there was a really good post on Stuff Christians Like this week. Its about having a near life experience. Its not long, so I really recommend clicking over and reading it real quick. You won't regret it. Promise.

You know how Jesus says whoever loses their life will gain it, but whoever saves their life will lose it? The post talks about how rather than completely losing our life we hold onto it, and because of that never really live. Its about not surrendering everything. I think God has been convicting me a lot of that recently. Really been opening my eyes to some idols and things that I still hold onto. I am trying to let those go, and praying he would keep revealing them to me, so I can let them go. I haven't written a post on it yet, because honestly I haven't had the time to sit down and process it all and put it into words. But hopefully I will soon. Until then, go read that post and ask God to show you if you're having a near life experience.

Ok, that's all for today. Hope you have a great weekend! I'll be back to report on the babysitting experience :)

I totally hear you on the "keeping the house sanitary" business. It actually really frustrated me for a long time until Josiah said that we spend the majority of our day away from our home and then when we are there, we're living in it, not cleaning it 24/7. I guess I see his point, but I do wish I could have more time to really clean now and then!

And I will certainly pray for your test! What is this test for?
