I love Fall!

I love Fall and the cold weather that it brings. The only thing that I miss about this year is the leaves are not turning colors.

I'm smiling because I'm happy, and I'm going to spend the majority of my day outside! This always makes me excited.

Life has been busy lately. I'm a little concerned how I'm going to get everything done and paid for but my Dad reassured me that everything will work out the way its suppose to. In the mean time I'm going to rely on God's strength and I will get through this crazy part of the semester.

Tonight is Teen Power and I'm excited about this. I love spending time with these teens. These teens are special to me. I know God has a plan for them and what an impact they can be. I know they have given me a different outlook on ministry and for that I'm grateful.


According to the dictionary busy means:

  • actively and attentively engaged in work or a pastime
  • not at leisure; otherwise engaged
  • full of or characterized by activity
I think this accurately describes my life presently.

I know personally I'm ready for Thanksgiving break. Ready for a few days of R&R

Monday started out to be just another Monday. When I woke up I wanted to go back to sleep, but made myself get up and go to classes. When I was finished my plans were to go take an hour nap and then spend the afternoon doing homework. Of course we all know that plans don't go as planned. At lunch Joshua said that he had to go home to register to vote. I also needed to go to the court house for an absentee form so I rode along.

Monday was the first day that you could actually start voting. So I voted instead of getting a form, and the hassle with that. I also was able to spend some time at home. It had been awhile since I had been home, and it felt good to be there. I spent the afternoon baking cookies, and doing some homework. That evening, my parents and I went down to Snappy's Pizza and had an awesome meal.

I must say that going home, even though it was very short time, was worth it. I can tell the difference in my week. I've been able to get up on time this week, I've gotten a lot accomplished that I probably wouldn't have, and there are a few more things. I'm thankfully that I was able to go home and just spend time with my Momma and Dad.

It been a great week so far, but I am greatly looking forward to this weekend!

This week has been busy, but I am hoping that it quickly comes to an end. Two things had me stressed out, one is over with, and the other will be before nine in the morning! I had to write seven poems for my children's literature class, and I was quite surprised how they turned out. Once I picked a topic the words came with little struggle. I have my first test tomorrow, but with the help of classmates to study with and a good review I'm hoping to do well.

I intend to blog about some of the things that has happened this week but I can't promise. I'm very excited the weekend is coming up and I will have a few extra hours to catch up on the sleep that I have been losing.

God is amazing! He answers prayers and supplies the needs far more than I ever imagined possible. I've been reminded lately by two different people on the subject of prayer. I had a professor say today that he'd rather us take a grade cut in one of his classes than to miss the most important part of our day, prayer and devotion. Pastor Chip recently spoke on prayer and how we don't take it as serious as we should. We need to be persistent in praying and ask God to do great things for us. We tend to ask for small things, but we serve an Almighty God, we need to learn to ask for bigger things. I'm glad that I personally know this God and that my love and desire to know Him deeper is growing with everyday.
