70 degrees

Happy Thursday!

I woke up this morning to the sun shining through the blinds. A promising day filled with sunshine was right before me! Right now, I am sitting by the lake enjoying the 70-degree weather. After a week of clouds, mist and chilly weather, the warm wind is a welcome sight!

My dorm is without electricity from 9-5 today. I guess there is a major electrical issue or something going on. They had to shut down all electricity to fix it. I walked back to my room today and the hall way was PITCH dark! It was a tad freaky. I guess I expected some emergency light or something! Thank goodness for the illumination app on my phone!

Anyway, I woke up this morning knowing the electricity was going to be shut off soon, so I turned on my brand new flat iron (as of less than a month ago) and found that it wouldn’t turn on! I tried every outlet in my dorm, even the kitchen! I couldn’t get it to work. I was certainly bummed out, but also my hair was a mess and the power was going to shut off at any moment! Haha… I quickly turned on my curling iron and all was well, but still! I remembered where I put the receipt and called my mom since I bought it at home… she was able to find it and is going to send it to me! It’ll be a little bit of a hassle to return it, but it’ll be nice to have it again!

I can’t believe that it is already Thursday afternoon. This week has seemed to go by slower than most, but I am happy it is almost the weekend. I have a lot to get done, but that’s the beauty of a weekend- there is time to get it done!

The other day in when I was reading my scripture verses for the day, I came across this verse and I just had to share. It is such an encouragement to me and I have it posted in my car!

Psalm 97:11-12- “Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart. Rejoice in the Lord, you who are righteous and praise HIS holy name.”

I just love that we have a reason to rejoice. I have been working on being more conscious on how I approach each situation. I’ve found that it helps to look at each situation with a good attitude- the outcome will be what God wants it to be… It is my job to follow HIS will. Just a little something that I have been thinking about.

I love that we have the freedom to read the Bible. It is something that is taken so easily for granted. Each evening when I read, I can instantly see a chance in my attitude!
