college students make me happy

It has been a very hard, tiring week. However, two days ago I woke up feeling a bit better. A bit more hopeful. I had a bit more spring in my step. Praise the Lord! It was a scary time for me, stressing at work and realizing my dad is not immortal. But I've been praying a lot and I feel the Lord bringing me peace in the midst of chaos. Which is so funny, because that's exactly what we talked about two weeks ago at our advent night. The second candle was "Peace". Peace in the mist of chaos.

Wednesday night was our last college group meeting for the year. We always end the fall with a Christmas Banquet. Everyone gets all dolled up, we have dinner, play games, and end the night with a white elephant gift exchange. Even though things have been stressful at work, these students remind me why I love what I do. I love them and enjoy them so much. Here are my highlights from the gift exchange:
