Late, Short, & Sweet

Pepperdine University sits loftily above the coast of the Pacific looking over Malibu, Ca. Glorious. Truly, it is. The buildings are cream colored stucco with terracotta tile roofs. The entrance is lined with palms and orange flowers. Outdoor furniture beckons you to rest a moment longer in the breeze-filled sunlit path. Julia asked a contestant from Spain if he was considering attending Pepperdine. He chuckled and said he couldn't; he would be too distracted.

The recital hall where the competition will take place tomorrow (Julia will play at 11:35 Ca. time for the first round) is acoustically divine. What a sound! This should be a total blast. Julia is pretty psyched and is really enjoying meeting everyone. Tomorrow Christpher Parkening will personally greet them all as he awards them each a medal for participating. She is quite excited, to say the least.

The family here is wonderful. We feel adopted and absolutely at home. I think that we may make this an annual vacation spot (well, you can't blame me for dreaming, can you?) But God's provision has been bounteous. Isn't it always?

Will post with competition results as soon as we return home tomorrow evening. God is certainly doing a good work. We simply need to sit back and see what it will look like!

I'm so excited for Julia! I've been thinking of/praying for her off and on today. I keep checking the competition website for an update on the top five. I was hoping to know before going in to work this afternoon. I guess I'll have to wait until tonight. :/

You all are such an inspiration!
