Kimberly and I went and got our permits today and will start driving on Saturday.

We've been taking Driver's Ed. classes in the evenings since Monday.

The car in this picture is what Mom and Dad used to announce to me on my birthday (March 12th) that I could finally take Driver's Ed.  (So yes, they gave me a CAR for my 18th birthday.  :-) )

First Day of Spring!

 March 20, 2010 has arrived, and with it brought along the official beginning of spring.  Would you guess what we found when we awoke this morning?  You got it - SNOW!

After a wonderful week of beautiful spring weather (like 60s) and being out in it almost every day, today is in the 30s with wet snow coming down.  Thankfully, we're supposed to get right back into the upper 50s in just a couple days here, that is, if the weathermen are actually right.  I do love snow, but not once I've had a taste of spring!  :-)

So, what's it like on your first day of spring?  :-)

I was listening to some music as I studied this evening (it helps cover up all the innumerable other noises that distract me easily) and one line just really caught my ear and full attention.  The song ended,

"Lord, whatever it takes to be more like You,
that's what I'll be willing to do."

That just kind of grabbed hold of me.  Could I honestly make that very same statement?  That's some food for thought.  How important is it to me that I be like Christ?  Am I willing to do, or perhaps go through whatever it takes to be more like Christ?

Well, that's all I had to share just now and I need to get back to studying, but let me encourage you to think on that statement too.  After all, the Christian life is all about being changed into the image of Christ.  Should we not be willing for whatever it takes?
