Great weekend..

Well, I finally got to have a summer this past weekend. All summer I have been working and finishing my summer classes. This past weekend I went to visit my aunt in Columbus, MS. Its a long 4 hour drive, but I have drove it many times before. Friday we ate at Pepper's, one of my favorite places. Saturday, we did some shopping in dowtown Columbus. I purchased some new clothes and some new shoes. Sunday I went to church with my aunt. Sometimes you just need a small vacation to clear your mind of things.

Now that I have my degree, the fun part is finding a job. I know that the Lord has a job out there for me. I just have to trust him. Today, I get to see two of my favorite people. I have coffee with April and get to see David. It has been two weeks since I last saw him. I sure have missed him. This week since I will be home more, I am going to get my room back to normal. This summer I have other things that came before my room.

I hope that everyone is having a great week. The following verse helps me get through things right now: "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4

Starting a new chapter...

It's hard to believe sometimes that I have finished school. It feels like just yesterday that I was in high school. Time goes by so fast. The older you get the more responsibilities that you have.

Starting a new chapter in my life is exciting. I am looking forward to starting something. Hopefully having a job that makes me enjoy going to work everyday. My sister will be starting college this year. I don't feel she is old enough to go to college. I know that she will do great and will make lots of friends. She is moving away and I have moved back in to my parents house.

I don't know what the future holds for me tomorrow. I know that the Lord will provide for all of my needs. Yesterday at church, I sang "Keep me in your will." It talks about how sometimes we think we are in control.. It goes on to say "Put me where you want to, not where I want to be.. If I should ask for things I want, just give me what I need.." That is something that can be hard for me sometimes. I want to do things my way, when sometimes I just need to trust that he knows what is best no matter what.

So, this week I am going to allow God to lead me and trust that he already knows what is best. I am going to pray more and learn to listen to his still small voice. This week I challenge you to seek the Lord and will direct your paths.

A man that will never be forgotten..

I know it's been a while since my last post. I have been busy this week. I will try to write more. Yesterday was my birthday, I turned 22. To me it was just another day. I don't feel any older. I had breakfast with David before he left to go home to Georgia. Then, I had supper with the family at Godfather's Pizza. It was a great day!

Today would have been my grandpa's birthday. I miss him very much. I always thought it was cool that his birthday was after mine. I always called him and sang happy birthday to him. This year I didn't get to do that. Sometimes I can still hear his voice. He always knew how to make me smile. He would be so proud to know that I have finished college now and on my way to the workforce.

We will never understand some things until we get to heaven. We just have to have faith that God always knows best and knows what he is doing. He was so proud of allhis children and grandchildren. I remember one day when I was at Grandma's house while he was in the hospital that I almost lost it. For years I had always seen all the pictures he had all around the house of all the graduates and everyone in the family. I saw them all the time, but that day it hit me. I realize that he was so proud of all of us and he would not trade us for anything. He will always have a special place in my heart. He was the best grandpa and the only one that I had growing up.
