Ah, Friday!

It's been a pretty slow week here. Chris and I are on Spring Break from the college. Nevertheless, there is plenty to do at home!
I have several assignments due in English next week, so I've been working on them. In the next few weeks I'll be getting mid-term grades, so I am anxiously awaiting those!
Graduation is coming up fast, so I've been looking at things pertaining to that. I've decided on invitations and I'm working towards starting a scrapbook. I'll be taking senior pictures in the next couple of weeks.
My graduation ceremony is May 17, I'll be graduating with a home school group. I'm not sure about the exact number of graduates, but it won't be more than 10-15. So it'll be nice and small and SHORT! I enjoy the smaller graduations, they are a lot more personal.

This weekend I'm going shopping, trying to find some things for graduation and maybe some summer clothes? It was HOT today!! The high was 80! That's pretty warm considering I was wearing a jacket and sweater last weekend.

I'm so glad its Friday, even if it does bring me close to the beginning of another week. I like school, but I'm particularly anxious for finals to come and graduation!
Tonight I went out to dinner with a bunch of friends. It was great catching up with people I haven't seen forever. I love those girls!
This year is so different, people I saw all the time last year, I never see! Instead I'm out of the house more and come in contact with so many different people. Mostly, very different from friends and adults I grew up around. I'm learning a lot. My relationship with God has grown, I have had to hold His Hand tighter. Being around non-Christians wasn't something I did much when I was younger. Now, I'm always seeking God's will on how I may be light to those who are walking this earth without the knowledge of Jesus Christ. I'm am continually reminded of the grace of God in my life! How precious the Cross is to me!

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

See from his head, his hands, his feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did ever such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown

O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live
O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
All who gather here by grace draw near and bless
Your name


Love always,
Adrienne Renea

you are welcome for the little markers... i realized that my name was not on that one, so i just had to leave it. :) which is probably really obnoxious!

as i said before, it's pretty cool to see you 2 weekends in a row. record setting... yessss.

ahhh, graduation. it's kind of weird. very surreal. things are changing, and it kind of feels like they are changing but the rest of the time it doesn't. it never seems like what you thought it would be. so it's really confusing and weird... and i didn't even have any graduation celebration to plan! here comes the token encouragement: everything is going to be ok. you will like your graduation. even the inviations you finally decide on. =p
