i know it's been forever, but you're just going to have to wait a little longer for an in-depth update on my life. in the meantime, thought i'd give you the nut-shell version . . .

school - FINISHED!

graduation - 2 weeks away

currently - packing up apartment

plans - move across town, stay in columbia, get a job

in case you haven't heard - i am not going to iraq in the fall. lots went into my decision not to go,
but i do feel confident that this was the right choice. i am not saying "no" to the opportunity
for forever, but just for now. i know some of you may be disappointed at this news, but rest
assured that this was not a rash decision and much agonizing prayer went into it. i will update
you more thoroughly whenever i get the chance.

pray for - the job interview i have on wednesday (May 2) at a children's home

much love to all :-)
