You’ve probably been wondering if Jenny and I have forgotten all about this blog or not, and yes, I’m sorry… but I promise we haven’t forgotten! 🙂 The truth is, that as things are now, I’ve been back to school. College and I have had an interesting regard for each other throughout the years.
It used to be that I wanted to go to University for the Arts, and then maybe college for some artistic occupation; yet when going to school for that medium, it can be hard to find a course without compromise. It lead to nothing and I felt God was asking me to let go of the idea… so I did. Then I started praying about an internment opportunity for high-school students taking up the pro-life cause, learning how to be an activist and changing people’s minds…. then that needed to be let go too. But wasn’t it a worthy cause?! I eventually began to think that college wasn’t meant for me, I wanted nothing to do with it. I also figured that as a woman, wasn’t my role as a keeper at home? Now this is true, but when things started coming up and God was leading them… what could I say when one of those was college?!
Throughout this past year my idea of what life was going to be like, seemed to be twirled around and then upside-down. I never dreamed I’d go to Ellerslie for 5 weeks, I never dreamed that I’d be part of a pro-life organization team online, and I never would have guessed that I’d find myself in college this fall, much less in the health-field.
God has taught me some truths and changed my heart, my life although may not look too different is really turned on it’s head! I’ve learned that I must be willing in a most practical way, to sacrifcice all that I wanted, planned or figured on. I delighted in Jesus more than anything else and learned that wherever the path may lead, if I follow Him I am safe and I am living as the Lord intended. My relationship with God is much more intimate now than it was a year ago, and He is truly my first devotion, my first desire and first love. I am bursting with joy when I speak or think of Him.
I could go on and on, but I would love to talk to you girls. Let me know what you think or if you have any questions and I’ll go from there. 🙂
with love, In Christ
