The day finally is here...

Yesterday was the day that I have been waiting on for four years now. The day that I finished my last college class!! It has been a long summer, because I have been taking 3 classes this summer. It feels like such an accomplishment to be finished! All those night of studying for finals are all over now. At least for now, unless I decide to get my master's. Right now though I am going to enjoy my life. It was so nice today not having to worry about studying.

I plan on having a huge chochlate cake somewhere. I may even treat myself to a pedicure. Now, it's on to bigger things. What they are, I am not sure of yet. I just have to trust that the Lord will provide me with a job and he already has something great in store for me. I just have to keep trusting him. This weekend, a few of my Faulkner girls are getting together. We are going to spend some time together. Some of us have not seen each other in about a year. It will be a great reunion. I can't wait! I hope that everyone has a great weekend!

Christian Worldview class..

I know it has been I while since my last blog. This past week I started my last summer class. I have class for 2 hours everyday and lots of reading every night.

I have been reading a book called Think Like Jesus by George Barna. Think Like Jesus is one of the three books that I have to read. I have been learning new things. It has opened my eyes to just how busy I think I am that I don't take time daily to spend with my savior. He knows me better than anyone else. A lot of times we live our life day by day and we sometimes don't stop and realize that this is the day that the Lord has made.

What would happen if as Christians we started thinking like Jesus. For one thing we would spend less time worrying about what we are going to wear tomorrow and spend more time building friendships and helping others. I am very guilty of just letting the day go by and not stopping and counting my blessings. I have a wonderful family that loves me. I have friends that are there for me when I need time. I can go on and on.

One last thing I wanted mention about the book I am reading. As Christians we need to be able to understand why we believe what we believe. Know scriptures that support why we believe the way we do.

This upcoming week I am going to try to spend more time with my savior.

Half the year is gone..

It's hard to believe that it's already July already. Times goes by so fast. I feel the older that I get the faster time goes. To watch my cousins grow up is amazing. So far this year as been full with tears of joy, happiness, sorrow, and life changes. It's hard to imagine that I will be recieving my degree this August. It seems like just yesterday that I was still in high school.

Since half the year is gone, have you been doing your new year's resolutions? It's ok, I have to admit that I have not been keeping any of mine. I said that I would start walking and exercising more.. That has not happened yet. Maybe I will start working on them..

This year is not over yet. I am going to enjoy it. Cherish all the memories that I make. Because one you lose someone that you love, the memories are what you will always have to cherish. This weekend will be the 4th of July. I am so thankful for all those who are in the military now and those those soldiers that have gone on. It's becuase of them that we are able to live in the land of the free. I am so proud of my boyfriend. I hope you all have a great holiday!
