There is something so weird about being 20, almost 21. It’s scary. It’s nerve wrecking. I will graduate college in one year or a year and six months (decisions decisions) and then I’m what, an adult? Every Sunday and Wednesday when I walk into The Grove I still feel like a 7th grader. and yet, I’m a junior in college who hopes to become a therapist one day. And, that day is coming quicker than I ever imagined. Anxiety is quick to fill my mind. I feel like there is a huge realm of possibility for the next years of life. It could be filled with worry, and yet, I have the decision to not allow it to. I have the ability to go to the Lord daily in supplication and prayer. And yet, I don’t. I tell myself I will. Just like exercise. But I don’t, and then I ask myself “how come I’m still anxious?” To be honest this next year has the potential to be very stressful. And to be honest, I get stressed out quite quickly. But, I know something that is bigger than stress. and I must remember that. That for generations people have graduated colleges, gotten married, excelled in their careers, and more than that had tribulation and affliction. and yet, the Lord is steadfast. I must remember this. I must meditate on this, because I am prone to wander. 

So, here’s to the anxiety filled days that don’t have to be so filled with so much anxiety.

Welcome to our family, little one!

Welcome to our family, little one!

It’s already 8:48 and I’m mad.
Everyone (so we thought) slept on the lawn for Midnight Maddness Tshirts.
I got 3 hours of sleep.
I went back to sleep for one more hour.
I overslept for two more.
I missed a group project.
I nearly missed it last time, too.
I hate group projects.
I am a perfectionist who hates failing.
I failed.
I now have a glow-in-the-dark tshirt but with 50 less points.
My roommate traveled out to the lawn at 8am this morning, she got a tshirt.
No waiting.

Here goes to you friday.
and my ranting.
and college life of accidently sleeping through your classes.


I best hope to win a ipad to tonight

Beks. Orange Groves. Sweet lovin’!

In the New Testament the Greek word for beauty is kosmos, alluding to the harmony in which the earth works with the universe so there may be life. True beauty is about creating life through harmony and unfading magnificence. It’s about accepting a power that stems from the unconditional love of God given to us before we exist and look any sort of way. This love creates what we really desire—validation. But as always, we must receive this love, let it nestle a home in our hearts—pulsing out to every part of our beings.

This next summer is so endless. 
6 weeks. Somewhere. Overseas. I am giddy and anxious all in one!

12 I am writing to you, little children,
because your sins are forgiven for his name’s sake.
13 I am writing to you, fathers,
because you know him who is from the beginning.
I am writing to you, young men,
because you have overcome the evil one.
I write to you, children,
because you know the Father.
14 I write to you, fathers,
because you know him who is from the beginning.
I write to you, young men,
because you are strong,
and the word of God abides in you,
and you have overcome the evil one.
