so it's been like 5 months since i last posted...how odd.
college. what can i say? lots of work, lots of fun.
i love my new church family at castleberry. they are an amazing group of people.
i have been surprised by so many things lately that i'm not sure what to think anymore (haha).
life is full of surprises.
so how has your life been going? i'm always on facebook so if you're ever on just message me or leave me a comment or something. i usually write back pretty quickly. it's like my number one procrastination tool (haha).
ok well it's late and i have a weight training class in the morning so maybe i'll write more soon (in less than 5 months!).
It's been like 4 months since I last posted. A lot's been going on but I don't think all of you want to read a huge paragraph about what I've been doing...I'm on Facebook all the time though, so if you ever wanna know anything you could just get on there and ask.
But pretty much I'm getting ready to graduate next Friday...Yeah, everything's winding down for the year (and for good). I'm not sure how I feel completely. It's really a mixed emotions kinda thing.
I look back on the last four years and it sounds cliche'd but I'm like "where did it go?" I just can't believe that I'm almost done with high school and getting ready to move 4 hours away. But I'm really excited about the new opportunities that are going to open up, and I can't wait to meet my new church family.
In a way, this is kinda like a reset of my life. New 'home', new friends, new church...And to be honest, there are a few negative things in Baytown I'm VERY glad to be leaving behind. I won't have to worry about them anymore because I won't be around to worry about them, and that's actually a relief to me. But I'm definitely going to miss all the positives, like my friends (both at school AND church) and of course my family. But we'll just have to promise to stay in touch, okay? ^_^
So pretty much that's it for now. I get on pleonast a lot and read everyone's posts but I rarely make posts of my own anymore. But I decided that this would be an appropriate time to do this since this is a new beginning for me. If any of y'all wanna come to graduation feel free to get the info from me.
Rom 8:28: And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

So the very last semester of highschool has just begun, and I'm still busy...
Actually I don't think there will ever be a time that I'm not busy. *haha*
But it's really starting to hit me that I'm about to graduate, move out of my house, go live with a stranger, and start college. I won't be going to Eastside. I won't get to see the people I normally see, or sit in the highschool class. And although I'm super excited about started this new section of my life, I'm definitely going to miss my home-church of 10 years.
I can tell that my posts for the next 5 months are going to follow the nostalgic trend...*sigh*
But life, even with all of the up's and down's lately, is grand. I'm trying to love every minute of it.
In good news, it wasn't as cold today as it has been. That was nice. I parked in the back of the school parking lot just so I'd have farther to walk. ^_^
I'm really craving Taco Bell, but they closed down the one by my house *saaaad*
Please pray for my...friend? I guess you could say. This person is a Christian, but is falling away from God. I care about this person so much, much more than they know, and so I'm super worried about the condition of their soul. So the prayers would be VERY appreciated. Thanks.
Today: smile at a stranger, give someone a random compliment, tell someone you love how you feel, pray to your Father, help someone out, read the Bible. I guarantee you, they're great pick-me-ups. ♥
It's been a while...I don't have much to say anymore.
All I know is that I find myself needing God more and more every day. He's pretty much the only "person" I can always depend on. He's never going to get tired of me bawling my eyes out and pouring out all of my feelings. He's never going to tell my secrets. If I hurt Him and ask for forgiveness, he won't hesitate to give it to me. He is my life, my all. Without Him, I don't even want to think about where I'd be right now. I'm not gonna lie, life has been kinda hard recently. And I haven't been the most joyful person. But I really am trying my best. I'm just not handling this very well. *sigh*
Ps 66:2 Sing forth the glory of his name: Make his praise glorious. But how can I sing for the glory of His name if I'm sad all the time? Exactly. So for all of y'all who just can't seem to get happy (myself included), remember this verse. In this morning's sermon, Mr. Emerson said something like, "It only takes people 2 minutes to see if you are truly passionate about God and what He can do for you." I wonder how many people have looked at me and thought, "She says she's a Christian, so why is she so unhappy? This whole God thing must not be that great or she'd be happier." I can't stop thinking about it. I'm going to try to be better, not only for others, but for myself as well.
Rom. 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is revealed a righteousness of God from faith unto faith: as it is written, But the righteous shall live by faith."
