Your Love Never Fails

This song has been getting me through some pretty tough times here lately. So, whatever you're going through in life just remember His love never fails and He makes all things work together for your good!

"Your Love Never Fails"

Nothing can separate
Even if I ran away
Your love never fails

I know I still make mistakes
But You have new mercies for me everyday
Your love never fails

You stay the same through the ages
Your love never changes
There maybe pain in the night but joy comes in the morning

And when the oceans rage
I don't have to be afraid
Because I know that You love me
Your love never fails

The wind is strong and the water's deep
But I'm not alone in these open seas
Cause Your love never fails

The chasm is far too wide
I never thought I'd reach the other side
But Your love never fails

You make all things work together for my good

Grace and Peace,

Long time, no blog

It has been awhile once again! I just do not feel much like blogging when I get home from work or even on the weekends. So, my posts will probably be few and far between. Oh well!

Well, I thought I would recap my wonderful and restful spring break. Last week was spring break for most in the Houston-area and boy was it much needed! Rather than writing a long post about everything I did, I will list.

Over spring break, I...

got cavities filled (yuck!)

got my hair cut

had Ritter's with friends for the 1st time this year

got a mani and pedi

spent a day with my husband looking at cars and then just deciding to get his fixed

at my first snowcone of the year

randomly saw my good college friend/roommate, Hannah (in Waco of all places)

slept in late

ate a Might Fine burger AND a Round Rock donut (both in Round Rock)- OH MY GOODNESS!!

bought an early birthday gift for myself, another Coach purse
hung out with my mom, dad, and best friend in WaCo

All in all, I enjoyed my break and now I am counting down the days for my next break, SUMMER!!

Until we meet again,

From the desk of a 6th grade teacher...

Disclaimer: It's been awhile, I know. Just haven't felt much like blogging until today. I just have to share this funny story with you...

Currently, in my class, we are writing "how to" papers and many of my students are baking something as their examples. Well, one of my students is making brownies and the recipe yields 12 and we have 24 students in that class. He was worried about having enough for everyone, so I told him to double the recipe.

Teacher: "So, you will just double everything. Instead of 2 cups of flour, it will be 4 cups....."

Student: "Okay."

5 minutes later....

Student: "Mrs. Fast, since I am doubling everything, will I need to double the temperature too? To 650 degrees?"

Teacher: Laughing hysterically, "No, sweetheart, the oven doesn't even go up that high. Just double the ingredients and put them into two pans."

Student: "Okay....."

It's moments like this that make teaching SO much fun! I suppose it is a logical question. Gotta love 6th graders! :)

Baby, it's cold outside!

And it's going to get colder! The weatherman keeps talking about the "arctic blast" that is coming this way. Well, I personally like the cold and look forward to the colder weather. I, do, however have several musts for keeping myself warm during this article blast.

I must eat plenty of this simple taco soup for dinner.

After dinner, I must have a copious amount of Annalee's yummy hot cocoa!

And I must keep warm by wearing this adorable green and polka dot union suit from Target!

How are you staying warm in the coooooooold?

Spuriffic Weekend

This little Spurs fan went to her first game in San Antonio.

She got to see Ginobili and Bogans up close (and Bogans' autograph).

This little Spurs fan hooted and hollered for her favorite NBA team against the Pacers.

She got to see Duncan score the last winning point, giving them a 1 point lead. 100-99

This little Spurs fan enjoyed the beautiful lights on the river walk and sweet time with her husband and family.

A few of my favorite (Christmas) things:

These are just a few of my favorite things at Christmastime (besides the obvious- Jesus)...

1. Sufjan Stevens' Christmas album. It's full of tradition Christmas hymns Sufjan-style and a few of his own Christmas songs. It includes 5 disks of fun, and it's sure to put you in the holiday spirit!

2. "Elf". Who doesn't love this movie?!?! I mean "Elf" is becoming a classic Christmas movie. It's super funny, sweet, and heart-warming. I love breaking this movie out after Thanksgiving- it just gets me in the Christmas spirit!

3. The college bowl games! I know this happens after Christmas or on, but still, it's exciting!! One bowl I am especially excited about is the Independence Bowl! The reason why is because my favorite college team, the Georgia Bulldogs, are playing A & M Aggies, and I am going!!! I am thrilled to not only go to my first bowl game, but to my first Georgia game (maybe only). No offense to the Ags, but UGA has a pretty good chance of winning! Go Dawgs!!

4. All the parties and celebrations. Last night, Daniel and I went to his company's Christmas party. It was nice. Today, I went to a cookie decorating party that my cheerleaders hosted. Very fun! And tonight, Daniel and I, his parents, and our friends, Dennis and Alecia went to Houston's First Christmas celebration. It was complete with a flying Santa, an elephant, a camel that fell on people, and a wonderful representation of Jesus' life. It was pretty impressive and beautifully done. (I had a busy, but fun-filled weekend!)

5. A break from school!!! Need I say more?!?!

What are your favorite things at Christmas?
