I had the best time I've had in a while last week...I was asked to go to Visalia CA with two other girls from the school, to judge in a Fine Arts competition. Of course, I agreed. I am SO glad I did. We left campus on Monday afternoon and were gone until Wednesday night. The church we went to, provided gas money and a hotel room, as well as all of our meals.
The trip up was beautiful. It was nice to see GREEN again! :)
The girls kept laughing at me, because I insisted on taking lots of pictures. But now they're glad I did; because we made so many awesome memories.
This was our hotel room. I went out and bought popcorn and gummy worms from the dollar tree. Man, we had a party. :)
Sarah and I went to breakfast each morning at the hotel. I'm so glad I got to know this girl! She's amazing and we had such a good time together. :)
The three of us are on the right, then two more judges; oddly enough I know their brother, so it was a small world. :) And across from us are three girls from the school I went to my freshman year! So I knew all of them as well! We had so much fun judging together. It was amazing.
Those are really all of the pictures that I took. However, I've got so many memories from that trip in my mind! The church we went to was smaller and so homey and friendly...reminded me of where I want to serve God someday. I helped judge the instrumental music; that was so much fun! There were a lot of really talented kids...
I won't soon forget that trip...or the wonderful friendships that developed as a result. Thursday morning, I was definitely not ready to start classes again...:)
Happy Easter everyone! I'm so excited about the services here; I know that they will be amazing.
Hope everyone has a great time with family and friends today and that you all acknowledge that the real reason for "Easter" Sunday is not a bunny, or eggs, or candy, or even honeyed ham (yum!)...but it is all about Jesus Christ who rose from the grave, thus proving He is the only God. :D
Have a wonderful day!
