Good news!

My thesis has been approved!! Woo hoo! It is such a relief and I am one step closer to graduating!

The academic standards committee met today to go over my petition and I will hopefully hear the results tomorrow. I have literally been waiting months on this! Either way though, everything will be ok.

I have 1 tests and 3 finals left until freedom! I can't believe how fast this year has gone by! I can't wait to start student teaching next year, it's going to be so much fun...

End of an Era

I'm beginning to think that I might just need to make a new blog with the gmail address that I know. I will let yall know if i do.

This is the end of an era for me... And it's a very sad/happy time. Today was my last Sunday at work, and I was holding back tears all morning long. I really really loved my job and the people I worked with, especially Kelly. We have become extremely close over the past year, and I'm going to be sad to not get to walk into the office every other day and discuss life with her. I know that the decision I made is the right one, and I look forward to what God has in store for me in the future, it was still hard to say goodbye and leave such a good thing.

My roommate is moving back to little rock in a little over a week. While we have had our rough moments, I absolutely could have not gotten through this past year without her. She was always there to go get coffee or icecream with when I was having a particularly rough day. She dealt with all of my weird quirks, and we have had so many amazing late night conversations on God and just life in general. I will miss her so much when she leaves.

As graduation nears, I realize that I'm at a place in my life I never dreamed I would be. I am happy and content. I look forward to the plans God has for me in the future, but i am enjoying the present. I know that where I am is exactly where God has placed me and that there is so much to look forward to in the future. The door is wide open for me to follow my dreams, wherever they may lead me. I'm excited to see where my mission field may lay... I want to make a difference and lead others to Christ in any way I can. I would never be at this place in my life if I hadn't gone through the trials that I've faced this past year. Some days are still filled with tears, and the ever present pain in my leg is a very physical reminder of where I have been, but God is refining me through the fire. Praise the Lord His love endures forever.

To answer the question...

Yes, I am still locked out of my gmail account. What's a girl to do?
I have been praying for focus because I knew that I would have a really stressful and busy month, well I think God gave me a little too much focus and I've been the energizer bunny lately! Seriously, this dedication to my schoolwork has come out of nowhere and it's amazing!! I don't know how I could have ever gotten everything done these past several weeks. Proof of Gods amazing goodness!
I seriously need prayers for my petitions that I am waiting on. They will determine whether or not I have a super crazy summer or just a crazy summer. The committee is meeting on April 28th so if you think of me then, I'd really appreciate the extra prayers.
I'm sick right now so that's a major bummer, and I'm taking my Praxis 2 on Saturday so I will be in the library all day tomorrow studying for it. Wish me luck:)
Love you all, sorry for such a boring post.

Thursday Tidbits

I am currently loving my new spring candles that make my apartment smell like an island paradise.

Somehow, my birthday always turns into a multi-day event. It began today with bliss cupcakes from the ladies I work for. Yummm...

Typically I don't stray from my lavender vanilla bubble bath, but I found a new sent that smells like oranges and it is simply wonderful.

Yes I am still locked out of my gmail account.

I love my girlfriends and especially nights like tonight. Low key, dinner and a great chick flick. I'm going to miss them so much next year.

Steph and I walked lake Fayetteville yesterday and almost stepped on a copperhead snake.

I have the WHOLE month of may off. I haven't had this kind of break since my senior year of high school!

Several of my friends are getting married, one is pregnant, one has a beautiful baby girl, and one has been searching for her dream job. Wow. Did we grow up already?

I love the fact that my future is wide open...

It's a good thing that I love all my friends' husbands/fiancées and they don't mind setting an extra place at the dinner table.

I love driving around with my sunroof open.

My parents and sister are
Coming up this weekend!

I ordered new furniture for my apartment, and I can't wait for it to get here so I can
Decorate! Wow I sound old...

That's all!



I know I have been MIA lately, and the truth is that I have been locked out of my gmail account (which I post on my blog from) due to the fact that I forgot what my username is. Haha. That's pretty typical of me. So in the meantime, I am posting from my phone. How great technology is. I will post at a later date all that has happened since spring break, but here are a few highlights:

I got accepted into my masters program!!!! Praise Jesus! I am so so so happy and excited and GRATEFUL that I am not having to look for a job right now :)

I am out of the boot from my surgery and I got my stitches removed last Friday. I'm so glad, they were so annoying! My leg feels great, my ankle is just really weak so I've been really trying to stengthen those muscles.

I am so thankful for renewed, restored, and new friendships that God has brought into my life. Having such a great support system makes the hard times not so hard....

We just began the 2nd part of our Daniel study by Beth Moore and it is amazing! The book of Daniel is just overflowing with prophecy and really intertwined with the book of revelation. It is really neat getting to learn about all the different theology concerning heaven, hell and the endtimes.

It was different being away from my family for Easter this year, but I loved getting to see all my kids at church and spending the afternoon with some amazing girlfriends. I have been reminded so much these past several weeks of the sacrifice Jesus made for us, and when we repeatedly sin it is like we are throwing that sacrifice in His face.

That's all for now! Love you all :)
