Only seventeen more calendar days of classes left! I'm simultaneously thrilled and terrified by that. I will be so happy to be done with going to class, writing pointless papers and working unnecessarily hard on "group" projects but at the same time part of me isn't sure if I'm ready to be done. Is it really time for me to move on? Did I do all of the things I was hoping to do? Ah!
While thinking about the aforementioned changes in life and also thinking about some of the things that have been happening in my personal life I came across this quote on another blog and it hit home with me.
God expects you to have enough faith, determination, and trust in Him to keep moving, keep living, keep rejoicing. He expects you not simply to face the future; He expects you to embrace and shape the future—to love it, rejoice in it, and delight in your opportunities.
God is eagerly waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as He always has. But He can’t if you don’t pray, and He can’t if you don’t dream. In short, He can’t if you don’t believe. - Jeffrey R. Holland
So, as cliché as it sounds, I'm working on rejoicing, delighting, dreaming and believing. (That sounds even more cliché than I thought it would!) I promise I'll be back soon, with pictures even! Wooo!
