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

Beginning of Fall (2018) Semester

It's been a while.  A hot minute since I last posted.  There's something about starting school, getting back into the swing of things, and organizing things that make me want to sit down and actually write a post.  I've read three books in the last two weeks, it's been a while since I've done that.  And when I'm on a role with reading then I feel like I need to be on a role with posting on here and then also my book review blog.  But whenever I try to write a book review it never, ever comes out right.  I'm scared to share too much, but also not enough.  I'm a super private person.  Unless I'm with my family, then I'm probably considered a complainer with them.  But around other people it's hard for me to really open up, it takes a while to trust and I have to be good friends and really like them to be comfortable enough to share.  So writing a blog post on some, somewhat personal things can be intimating.  A little haunting.  Did I mention I also over think everything which is another reason I'm not SUPER big on social media thing.  I enjoy it, do it once in a while, but mostly I just spy on others.  I'm really good at that.  I see things, I notice.  I like to watch and read people.  I sometimes can feel other people's emotions, but also be completely drowned in them as well.  It's been a good few months to learn to love, forgive and see a lot of my own sin as I walk through this crazy life.  It's good to just live in the grace of today.  Not worrying about tomorrow, sufficient is today's troubles.

I start school this week. Yay.  NO, really this will be a good, but different year for me.  It's my first time EVER, taking a class on campus.  I'm excited, but also a bit nervous. I know it's good for me, but I'm just not sure how I will do learning in a class room setting, I don't think I'll do as well.  But it's a little hoorah for my last semester.  After these three(?) months I'll be done with school, that's the plan at least.  I'll have two certificates that will allow me to apply at other office managements or bookkeeping positions if I ever needed or wanted to.  I mean, I might take a class or two for fun with my sister, but I'm really planning on being done with school... forEVER.

To the beginning of my last semester
