Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h

Learners Permit

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to send a post to tell everyone that I got my learners permit on Friday, (6-28-13)!  I took the test and was so very thankful that I passed, missing only three of the 46 or something like that questions!
I could hardly believe it...I was doing drivers Ed and felt pretty confident about the info at the time being but then I finished it and we made an appointment to take the test but we didn't end up going in until like two weeks. So on Monday I looked at my drivers Ed practice test and realized that I couldn't remember most of it and I felt really discouraged. (They ask really hard question, even my mom was like, what?)  And so of course all week I was like great I am going to mess up and have to take the test again and again. (My mom tried to encourage me by saying that she had to take it three times :)
I studied really hard that week and especially Thursday.  I spent most of the time reading the book-let, (You can ask Ethan about that).  And my head really hurt that night.  And so Thursday night I felt like I knew a lot of the info but I still kept thinking of failing and all the disappointments.
I had prayed all week that God would prepare my heart, I prayed that I would pass but if I did fail I prayed that He would allow me to trust Him knowing that He has a plan for everything in my life.
My mom knew how I was filling and she encourage me a lot and my dad was confident in me the whole time! :)
So by Friday I was nervous but I felt God comforting me.
The DMV is crazy and I had never been in there before.  We had to wait in line to get a number before we were even helped.  And the whole time I am freaking out because I am dreading the test part. And then I had to wait in line to get my picture taken!  So finally an hour and ten minutes later I was taking the test.
Those questions were really hard, each option was so similar that I kept doubting myself.  My head started hurting and I was just done so I went in line to get my results, sure that I was going to fail.  (I need to learn not to doubt all the time)
I couldn't believe that I only got three wrong!  I am so excited!  And nervous.
I have not driven yet, I can't start driving until I have had six hours of driving with an instructor.  But my dad said he is going to take me out before so that I know what I am doing before I go with someone I don't know!
But anyways, Thank you to those who were praying for me!  I know I could not have done any of it without the Lords strength! 


  1. This is so crazy, I cannot believe you're a driver now (almost) :) how exciting!! Congratulaions! Be careful out there!
