Tuesday Talk: 14 Dec. 2021

When we woke up this morning, the song going through my head was Charlie Brown’s “Christmas Time is Here”… except with different lyrics.

Finals week is here
Anxiety and fear
Coffee for all that students call
That dreaded time of year

Stress is in the air
Flash cards everywhere
Conjugate verbs and learn the words
For dog and horse and hair

Fatigue is in the air
Papers everywhere
Studying while we’re stuck inside
And cups of coffee there

Finals week is here
Students drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
This tenacity through the year

Fatigue is in the air
Papers everywhere
Studying while we’re stuck inside
And cups of coffee there

Finals week is here
Students drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
This tenacity through the year

Pray for Allen, me, and the other students as we wrap up our semester and prepare for Christmas break. Everyone (except our family) will be leaving campus and traveling, so pray for safety and smooth border crossings.

We are thankful for a successful semester learning French and growing in relationships and we’re excited to see what God does next in our family. But first, we have some finals, papers, and presentations to wrap up!
