Prom!!!


Last night was CCA's prom. It was held at the local country club (which was a very nice place and it had good food). They had dinner and a dance, with a DJ. I went with a guy from Cornerstone named Kyle (just as friends). I was SOOOOOOO nervous about going because we didn't really know each other at all, we'd never talked for more than a couple minutes walking down the hallway so I was very concerned about the "awkwardness factor". But, as usual, it really wasn't as bad as I thought and I was glad that I went. I kind of went crazy with the pictures (especially after I started editing them) and couldn't decide which ones to post so I put nearly all of them: :)


And, as promised, a picture of me and Kyle:

I hadn't blogged or even journaled about prom until now and I'm really not sure why not. I can see how God grew me even through a silly dance! I had decided awhile ago that I wasn't going to the dance unless, of course, I was asked. I wasn't going to go again with a group of girls because it really was not fun (i did it last year). I had totally surrendered it to the Lord, and was content with not going. Yet, He chooses in His beautiful grace to bless His children and so I was thankful that He gave me the opportunity to go. It just goes to show that sometimes we need to step back and let Him do the work. So often I try to "help Him along" :) and it can mess things up!! So overall it was a great time of hanging out with friends, getting dressed up, taking pictures, and just having fun. I'm glad that I got to go, especailly since I won't be at Cornerstone at all next year, and that probably means that was my last high school dance!! Especially if I graduate next year.... more on that in my next post.

Wow,

I finally had a chance to see ALL of the prom pictures. You really look amazing and very grown up. It brought tears to my eyes. I'm so happy to hear you had a nice time.

PS: Your date looks terrific in his tux.

I love you pretty girl. Aunt Lulu
