It’s the last day of August. It just hit me. September is coming, which means cooler weather will be on it’s way with bonfires, hot tea, and fall attire. These are a few of my favorite things. (The Sound of Music reference is for my mom.) A lot has happened in the past month.
School: It’s going great, I enjoy most of my classes, well, when I say most I mean 3 of the 6. But what I have really enjoyed is the fellowship and community that has continued to grow. I live off campus in a cool house with some great guys and it has made the stress of school far less severe.
Church: Wiregrass is still great, I’m thankful God has given me a place to serve and grow while I’m at school. I’m now helping with an 8th grade guys small group with my roommate Daniel and they are a handful, but a lot of fun to work with.
Work: I enjoy being back at work, even the days I don’t feel like going, like yesterday. I got to see an incredible thing last night. A woman I work with who doesn’t have a very clear understanding of God reached out to a woman in need and showed compassion to a lady and her family by buying her food. It’s incredible to see ‘non-churchgoers’ doing things like this. My friend Chelsea and I were able to have a cool conversation with her afterwards. God is good.
Life: The hardest thing for me right now is how much I miss the people of Beaches Chapel. God really blessed me with incredible people there. I think about them constantly and often wish I was at home to be apart of their lives. But I have come to an understanding that God has me here at school for a reason and I must be faithful to where I am now. And though I may be separated geographically from them, technology has allowed me to stay in touch. Plus I’ll be at home this weekend and get to see them a lot. It will be a blessing.
If you’ve gotten this far, thanks for reading my ramblings. I hope you are having a good end of summer/beginning of fall. Be blessed.
