It was so fun to all get together to celebrate Courtney's birthday. Sisters and mexican food, it doesn't get much better than that. So glad to be home for a weekend and see everyone, except mom and day, but including the puppies, who by the way, got into a little fight with two other dogs, when I took them for a run on Sunday morning. All is well though. 

School is school. And I am just counting down the days till' summer arrives, shorts, sun, snow cones, and sunscreen! I really am ecstatic. I am liking most of my classes, and I love my chemistry teacher. He is a very bold christian and is just the sweetest old man who is very reminiscent of a grandfather figure. 

As hard as a time I have been having with this new adjustment I have never felt so much peace. I know their is a purpose for my being here and whether it is revealed now or never I know God is fully with me while here at TWU, and quite frankly that is all I need in this life. He has been so loud here to me. I feel Him speaking so clearly and comforting me as I miss you guys. 

If you get a chance listen to God of Justice by Tim Hughes and May Our Praise by Leeland. Those are my two theme songs for this semester. 

What is going on with yall? How is work, school, and everything else? 
I love yall so very much and hope yall know that.

FInally Back

I am finally back to denton and to this blogging thing. Even though I am still in denton it feels strange to be in this new room and school. It still feels far away from everything else and like a very different world. The people are nice and I have been trying to get out and meet new people. 

This past weekend at disciple now we talked a lot about being a light in this world and even as I was teaching I knew God had orchestrated me to so He could teach me just as much that weekend. I really needed that refocusing of what my true purpose is for the Here & Now. I needed to remember why I am here, at this school, in this world.  My main verse for this semester is going to Matthew 5:16-"In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in Heaven." As well as John 14:15-18, John 14:27, and Luke 9:23-24. 

I met several girls on the floor today as I went door to door. Three actually came to my room tonight to talk and stayed over for thirty minutes. It was exciting, but I was a nervous wreck, I have not done anything like that since I don't know when, but I hope this semester I will be able to show them God's love. 

Please pray for me as this semester brings so many changes that may seem small, but make everything feel so different. It is a hard change to not come home every night to a friendly face to who I can tell my day about. I know there is a reason to be here at TWU and I know God will do good things if I stay willing. What can I pray for you about sisters?
