Done done done done

My semester is done! I finished this morning at 3 AM. Once my Confessions paper was done, all my work was complete. I had 2 classes today and that was it. All exams and papers are done! Yeah!
That being said, I can now do some blogging and catch up with other bloggers.

Fri. morning we'll leave PA to spend Christmas with my daughter and granddaughter. We'll see friends as well. I've really been looking forward to this trip. That part of the country is home for me and I've been a bit homesick this semester, especially missing my kids.

After our time in NY, we'll go to New England to spend time with friends and family there. I'm looking forward to that as well. I'll have a chance to preach at my home church Jan. 3.

After the break, there'll be a couple of days before I go for my J-term cultural immersion experience in Appalachia. Four of us will be going to different places, shadowing pastors. We'll be there for 2 weeks/3 Sundays. After that time it will be back to seminary and time for the Spring semester to begin. At this point, I'm halfway through my academic studies. Next year will be internship and it seems like everything now is happening so quickly.

Blessings to you all.

Thanks Beth and Steve. All of us are pretty fried and are more than ready for a break. I have to admit I will miss this community while we're away though. Hope you both have great Christmases. I know it will be a busy season for you Beth. When will be at the sem next?

Take care you two.
