Be contented. Be cheerful. Do not have a murmuring spirit. But give thanks for all the blessings in your life so that God can bless you more. Have a humble spirit, so that God can exalt you. Do not seek earthly things that will perish but seek the true treasures that will last and give fulfillment
and the Lord will answer you in your times of need. Seek the Lord on your knees and pray. Worship Him in truth and in spirit.

college life

So i am set and have adjusted to my new home. :)
Orientation for college started last friday and man did they keep us busy!! It started friday and ended monday and let me tell you, I am so grateful i went to that because it has really helped me with the transition from high school to college. We did a lot of really fun stuff along with bible studies and i got to know a few people. :) They would have stuff for us to do from 8 in the morning to midnight! isn't that insane or what lol, but thats college for you. :)
One night there was an ice cream social at midnight for the freshman and they tried to great the longest banana split and we all had to stand side by side to eat it. It was funny!! Another night we had Karachi at the schools church or you could call it the BSM building. That stands for the Baptist Student Ministry. We had worship in there earlier that morning, then it turned into a restaurant type thing, (thats ware we ate dinner), then it turned into a pretty sweet coffee house for Karachi. it didn't even look the same on the inside.
But anyways i have met a few cool people and i can't wait to meet more!

Here is something funny for you... lol So last night i went to work out and when i was going back to my dorm one of the girls staying in my dorm was leaving. We began talking when we realized we were living in the same place and i asked ware she was going. She said Walmart and i needed to go there so i went with her. lol I just thought it was funny because i never met her before and here i am going to walmart with her. :) it makes me laugh!! she is pretty cool and we exchanged numbers so if we ever get board we can hang out.

Here is something else that is funny.. Chrisann (the girl i went to walmart with) and I were pulling back into the school parking lot and she told me that I had to lessen to this amazing song so we sat in the car and lessened to it. It was so powerful and it just gave me the goose bumps all over. It is called "how he loves" by Kim Walker. It was so beautiful!! We got out of the car and it was extremely windy along with lightning and it was so peaceful we just stood out there for a few minutes just enjoying the weather. :) sigh.....

Ok now onto a crazy thing... Today was Chapel and I sat by myself because i didn't feel like trying to find the people i new but the service was so powerful! The worship was so amazing and can you guess what song they sang last?? It was the song "how he loves", the same song Chrisann and i lessened to the night before!! How awesome is that!?!?!? I got the goose bumps during the whole time of worship. It was awesome!!

Well i guess thats enough for now, because this post is getting to be long. lol but if anyone has any questions for me just ask. =)

See Ya latter!!!!

I love that song too Tay! An amazing friend of mine shared it with me for my birthday. I'm glad you heard it. my favorite part is the very beginning with the he loves like a hurricane i am a tree bending beneath the weight of wind and mercy...
I'm glad God is taking care of you. It's weird that you're in a different place, but at the same time crazy awesome. It's like a whole new window is opening!
