I took a trip up to PA with a friend to see Jonah at Sight and Sound a second time. It was excellent and, as before, turned my gaze upward (Deuteronomy 9). We stopped at Friendly's for dinner and enjoyed delicious sandwiches and ice cream sundaes. Above my head, there was a photograph of a covered bridge with a gigantic hamburger inside. O_o? hehe it was fun! We returned to DC in time for church on Sunday and that evening I went to see a production of White Christmas with my roommates. The music and dancing was very fun! As always, the conflict and drama in such stories stressed me out a little, but there was a happy ending :) Monday evening, my small group met for an evening of snacks and socializing. It was fun to enjoy some relaxed time with them. Wednesday evening I made veggies sandwiches for my roommates for dinner and then packed my bags. Yesterday was a dark, rainy day, but I went to hear Handel's Messiah for the first time with two sisters in Christ. It was beautiful and the third part (a meditation on the resurrection) was so very encouraging.
