Im sitting here in the bookstore bored and thought that I would blog. Last night I got to spend the night at Kins house which for most people that know me, they would know that I hate spending the night at other people's home. We were exhausted and went to straight to bed once we got to her house, but laying in bed, reflecting on my friendship with her, I appreciate her in so many ways. She has become a great friend these past few years. Her life is a reflection of Christ's and challenges me spiritually in so many different levels. I enjoy the deep conversations that leaves me questioning things and making me think, which is something I have missed for so long. I've become tired of the shallow and meaningless conversations that I can never find here at CBU. Friendships even fall into this category at times. But never the less Kins always comes through to challenge me on some area of my life, whether she realizes it or not. I love our story times, soaking up the sun, beach trips, and of course our one time Yogurtland excursion... LoL.

I look forward to this next year, Lord willing we work together, of growing closer and sharing life together.

God's Gift

I look at this past year and see it as a growing period. A growing period for the both of us. I've learned so much about myself and have learned so much about God through these hard times. It's not til we get out of the storm that we truely see God's hand over our life and so is the case here. As I still work through things, I have re-learning who I am away from the illness and have become more dependant on God and less on myself and others. I see the same in your life. You have grown and allowed God to use you in ways that amaze me. Seeing God use you this past year from afar in directing young men towards HIM is just one of the many characteristics I admire about you. It's funny how God works things out in the end. I'm filled with excitement and joy at the wonderful gift God has blessed me with. God truely desires to see His people happy. And while I struggle with the fact of just being content and joyful in our heavenly father, I see the joy that you bring out of me or should I say the joy that God has brought out of me through you.

I'm excited to see where God takes us this next year together. Although miles apart, I know that with our eyes focused on HIM, our journey together will be that much closer. So while I sit here and try not to think about the future of physical seperation, I will embrace the times we have together of laughter and our lunch walks :)

Made it... Alive and Healthy!

I made it! I graduated through college alive and healthy. It wasn’t easy, but to say that I did it means more than anything to me. Academically I don’t see much to it, but to look through the obstacles I overcame makes me stand in awh at my heavenly father and wonder how people face their giants without HIM standing right besides them. Walking down the isle during graduation this morning I couldn’t stop thanking God for allowing me to see that moment, which a year ago I never thought I would be able to experience. I continue to pray that my life will never again be taken for granite like it once was. Now I’m on to face the world of wherever HE will take me… whether it’s here at CBU or else where and then on to nursing. Yay for more schooling! Haha. New events and rekindled relationships are unfolding in my life, which is exciting and scary at the same time. A heart that has finally been restored is hesitant to be brought back out. I guess it’s one day at a time and I know God will lead us both as we seek HIM first in all we do.

I pray the Lord will lead me into paths that will bring HIM the most glory and will further HIS kingdom.
