Talk about a Proverbs 31 woman, y'all. I couldn't be happier that she's mine and Will's mama. We love her to bits. So proud of her.
Otherwise, I'm just having a time of sweet refreshing before I go back to studying hard and getting back on my school/work schedule. I'm in a coffee shop again. Don't laugh.
Here are a couple of tidbits for you to give you a little overview of what my life is like at Covenant:
- I work facilities to help pay for school, which means that 15 hours a week, I clean one of the buildings on campus. I love my job! Cleaning toilets and windows isn't so bad when you work with awesome friends and are filled with laughter, even at 7am. Plus, my boss is such a light and frequently invites us into her office for a chat and some chocolate-covered coffee beans.
- I'm an English major with a minor in education. For my introduction to teaching class, I get to go off campus three hours a week and student-teach English at a public high school. I can't give any detail for confidentiality reasons, but I adore it. I am so aware that teaching is my calling, and I get so excited every time I go. Plus, I get to dress professionally, which y'all know I love.
- My friends are so solid. I'm on a pretty regular schedule, and so I always know who I'm going to eat with for each meal depending on the day, and there's always someone up for hanging out at night, be it for deep conversations or laugh-fests. I love them all so much, and they make me feel so normal! Everyone has issues and we're all just making it by with the Lord's help. What a blessing they are to me, especially after being so lonely for the past two years.
- I've found a wonderful church home and I'm planning on getting more involved as time goes on, and I'll probably transfer my membership there at some point. The church is like the one I grew up attending in a lot of ways, but it's also a bit different and I just knew that it was my place. It was immediate. I had prayed for a while that the Lord would make it a clear decision, and almost as soon as I walked in the door, I knew. I get excited to go to church every Sunday, and I can't wait to go back next week!
- I have three lovely, hilarious, and sweet roommates. I might do a post on them one day if they don't mind, but they're dolls. It's not easy to get four girls to get along well, but we've conquered the tension and have been smooth sailing for a while now. Love those ladies.
- I cut hair now! I cut one friend's hair, and then a roommate's, and then suddenly I had several other people asking me to do the same, even a guy friend. It's so much fun and it relaxes me a lot. It helps broke college kids, and I love doing it. Tell your friends. ;)
I'm a busy, busy bee, and I love it. When I'm busy and when I'm surrounded by a body of believers, I flourish. I'm so happy at my school, and I owe it all to the Lord. How blessed I am! I don't deserve a lick of it.
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope."
