Palm Sunday

"Lord, when you come into Your kingdom
Remember me..."

We sang this phrase three times to a simple melody, after which, we began to recite the Nicene Creed. Every word was heavy with meaning in a way it had never been before.

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God, begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.

Lord, remember me...

Wooo-Hooo! Quarter is Almost Over!

Just when I'm beginning to feel like a hermit, I see the light at the end of the tunnel. The end of this busy quarter is the middle of this week and the added surprise? I found that I had one day more than I thought! All Art assignments have to be in by Wednesday midnight, and I assumed that all Psychology assignments were due then, too - but, not so! Thursday is the deadline for them.

I thought that I was taking a heavy class and a light class, when I registered - but, quickly found that they were both heavy! The material has been absolutely wonderful, but the work load has been challenging! I've loved every minute of study and feel a bit cheated in having to complete a full course in only ten weeks.

It seems that in spite of trying to pace myself, there is still a lot to do before the quarter is over. This next few days will be intense. The good news is, my grades are still perfect - which totally amazes me, and believe me, I'm not bragging - I am in shock and very, very thankful.

What's next? Right now, it looks like I won't be taking classes Spring Quarter - no funds, as yet. So, I will turn my attention to Spring cleaning, Algebra review (so I can test into a higher level of math), Art (painting) and Photography. I also want to spend some much needed time with my daughter who has been a champion while I've been buried in my studies. (She makes a mean pizza!)

The Dove chocolate wrapper I opened tonight (celebrating the completion and submission of two assignments today!) read, "Keep moving forward; don't look back." Great timing for that one!

Well, that's about it for now - just wanted to let you know that I am alive and moving forward on a lot of fronts. Hope everyone has a good week and I'll try to jot a note sometime soon.

New Photo Blog

I've opened a new blog just for iPhotos that I take at
The photos on this new blog will consist of the spontaneous, unedited shots of the beauty I see everyday around me. I have been really enjoying the iPhone camera and thought it would be fun to keep a "journal" or "portfolio" in the form of a blog. That way, family, friends, and guests can enjoy them too.
Some of the shots you will recognize as ones I've posted on other blogs - but that will just be for a short while until I get caught up saving the photos I already have to the blog. Newer photos will appear at the same time - so watch for them ;)
See you there!
