May 1st...

-That means: 10 days until I go home.... 10 days until I have completed my freshman year of college!

Today as I woke up and was getting ready for church, I looked out the window and saw it was raining.  I wish that the weather was gloomy yesterday- I have a lot to do today! 

Church was good today. I was sitting there thinking how blessed we are to be able to truly worship freely. I think we take that privilege for granted way more than we should. I am so thankful that I can go to church each week and share about my relationship with Christ with others without having to worry about the consequences that some people have to deal with. We are certainly blessed.  

So thankful that I brewed a quick cup of coffee on my way out the door this morning. The k-kup I randomly picked up from the drawer without even looking was Wake-Up Call.  I chuckled as I realized just how fitting this little cup of coffee was for my day today. The gloom and rain outside certainly made me want to jump back into bed.  

My friend Jessie sent me a text message this morning as she usually does containing a Bible verse and a short note.  This really encouraged me this morning as the stresses of finals are quickly approaching.  I thought I would share what she sent me. 

"Listen, my son, and be wise.  Keep your heart on the right path." Proverbs 23:19 
--God calls us as His children to fix our hearts not on things of this world.  

Thanks Jessie for that reminder this morning! 

Happy Sunday, I am off to study for the rest of the day listening to the thunder and hearing the raindrops touch my window. More coffee please!!! :)
