Life As Of Late

{1} I am obsessed with Oswald Chamber's My Utmost For His Highest. It challenges me every day and it's awesome.

{2} Y'all know how much I love music. And I have a new love. The Museum. While they repeatedly take my boyfriend away from me (because he works for them), I do not hold it against them and absolutely love their new CD. You should all go buy it. :) No, really. Do it. I promise you won't regret it. Do it now.

{3} My family went to St. Simon's last week for vacation. Cosbie came down after we got there and we got to spend some time with Coach, Jessica, and the boys. It was an awesome week... and I didn't take any pictures. I have no idea who I even am. Please don't kill me, Linds.

{4} School starts in 2 weeks. I'm sorry, what? so not ready for that. but it is my last semester of classes. ever. the only things standing between me and graduation are 1 semester of classes and my student teaching... and all the work that goes along with both.

{5} I got a letter from Catharine, the little Kenyan girl I sponsor through Compassion, this weekend. I love her so much. I am so humbled every time she tells me that she prays for me. She has nothing and yet she is so grateful for me and prays for me. She amazes me. I also love that she is not a very good student, like me. She gets ok grades, but hates school. A girl after my own heart. And she always asks me about the wild animals in America. She really likes animals.

{6} Yesterday was Noonday's first Sunday without a pastor. I was apprehensive about the situation in general, but excited because Shad was preaching (and I seriously think he's the greatest youth pastor ever). I may be slightly biased because I think he's that awesome, but he brought the Word for sure. His message was entitled "What Now?" (the question we're all asking) He challenged us to do 2 things: love God and love people. It is such a simple concept that isn't always so easy. It felt like our church was waking up again yesterday and I am so excited to see what God is going to do with us during this season.


  1. I might be a little biased, too...but I thought Sunday was wonderful...my toes even got stepped on.

    So happy that you are almost done with school...ahhhh, the light at the end of the tunnel! :)

  2. I definitely got my toes stepped on too- in a very good way.

    I can't believe I'm almost done. so scary but so good! :)
