All moved in!

Well, I'm all moved in at Northwestern. I love it here so much! It's AMAZING. I knew God put me here for a reason. Anyways, I don't have much time right now, but I'll put pictures and updates on other things going on. Orientation has been fun and long!

Answered Prayers

So I've been stressed lately, including my mom. I've been worrying so much about fixing my car and how I would get money to fix the brakes and roders, but it's all taken care of. I've also been stressing about moving to school in less than a week, and getting everything together. My mom recently today just found out amazing news! For about the past week I've been asking God to give her comfort, and He did that today! He heard all our prayers.

Matthew 6:34 "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

We've forgotten how we only need to worry about one day at a time. My prayers have been answered including my moms! What an amazing God we have?! :) Even when times aren't good, I will still praise you, Father.

God's awsomeness

This past two weeks I've been worrying way too much. I know I shouldn't, but I just can't help it. It's really hard sometime to not worry about the future. God is so good, and He has given me comfort, especially this morning when I came across these words in Pslam 32:7

"You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance."

I'll be moving two weeks from today. I've been so worried about getting my car fixed, paying bills, and worrying about family things. But God has comforted me. I have no clue how I would handle things if it wasn't for her His unfailing love. His love is priceless. I'm not sure about what will happen in the future, but I do now that my great and awsome God is always with me.

A little sad, but greatful for AMAZING people.

Tonight I am reminiscing all my friends at Crossroads. I'm excited about going to Northwestern, it's just going to be hard at first. Only because I made such amazing friends, that I will miss dearly. Right now I'm just going to say a few things about a few girls that have touched my life at Crossroads.
Melanie, you know me so good. You know my quirks and yet you still love me. I love you so much, and had an amazing year at Crossroads getting to know you. I hope you know that you became one of my best friends at school. I hope that we will be able to stay in touch throughout this year and our lives. You have touched my life so much. We are so different, but God did bring us together. I'm so glad that you were right across the hall from me. Love you, Mel.

Julie Wethington, you are an amazing person! It was so nice getting to know you the beginning of the year. You brought out a really good, mature side to myself. Thank you for being there for me when times were tough for me. I'm really glad that I got to have you apart of my life the beginning of my first time away from home. I loved the times that we got to watch Bing Crosby together:) and laugh, and run to Wal-Mart at 10:30 at night to get Capri-Sun. Thank you for being genuine and loving. You are an amazing person.

Hannah Winters, you are so much like myself. You make me laugh, and I'm pretty sure I make you laugh. I loved going to the "Y" with you and swimming afterwards. LOL, I will always remember the time when I couldn't control myself with laughter in the pool, and people were staring, but I didn't care :) I also love the time when we were angels together. I think Jesus's birth brought us together, because it really did. If it wasn't for the Nativity, I don't know if we would have been able to be such good friends. Thanks for being funny. I love that about you. I also love that we got to become friends second semester. You make me laugh. I wonder what God thinks when we cannot control our laughter? Anyways, I love you Hanney!

Hannah Montana, you are intelligent and have been a really cool person to live with and watch movies late at night with. I loved that we sporadically decided to put twilight all over our walls in honor of the dvd release. It was fun laughing with you late at night. I'm going to miss you during this school year. You gave me so much knowledge by living with you. Thanks for being a loving person and giving me a fun year at school!

There are many other people that have touched my life this past year that I will miss a lot. God knows what He's doing in my life and I will trust in Him.

Almost done with school!

Well, I have about two weeks left of school. I will be moving home for the summer, and working at my old job, Crosby SuperValu. I'm pretty excited to be working there again. School has been a lot of fun. I've made many amazing friends. I've also learned so much throughout this school year. Mostly growing more closer to God, and learning so much more from the Professors here. I am so thankful for everything that I have been blessed with here at Crossroads.
I'm still confused about what I want to do this fall. The thought crossed my mind about staying at Crossroads another year, but it just doesn't really make any sense concerning my decision on my major. I've decided that I want to major in art. Maybe art illustration. I've been accepted to Northwestern College and Bethel University. I've decided to go with Northwestern. After visiting the colleges, I felt that NW was much more personal. I'm really excited, but also sad to leave my friends here at Crossroads. I know that it will be for the best, and I am so excited for the future. Many times I have been unsure about if an art major would be appropriate with finding a job, etc. I feel that God has gifted me with a talent, and I want that to be what I do for the rest of my life.
