Lately, I have been pondering what the future holds for me. Do I want to just settle for the common life? Or, am I going to take chances to have the life that I want to have. I only have one shot. One shot, to live the life that I want to live. I know that at the end I may have some regrets. However, I want to look back and be thankful that at least I went for my dreams.

I feel as though it has been forever! My life has been a turning wheel of events, due dates, projects, celebrations, and tragedies. For now it is in a timely state with a unbearable amount of school work that is yet to be done. I hope that after the beginning of October I will finally be able to breathe. As for the rest of it, things have been going smoothly. I am trying to keep myself in the view of shortness of life, so that I do not forget the gift that it truly is. My dear husband is overwhelmed with his work. I am so proud of the strong man that he is. I do hope that after May I will be able to find a job so that I can take the weight of providing for this family alone off his shoulders. I know that the openings for elementary teachers are scarce, however I must believe that God will grant me favor. My life may be a calendar full of events but I am truly the happiest I could ever be.

I am so ready to be done with this semester of school! I feel like I never have time to be crafty for the fun of it! There is always something due, to go to, or a house to be clean! So I am counting down the days till I can once again spend the day in a colorful sea of materials :0)

Sometimes I get so frustrated with this world. So frustrated with "Church." They just dont get it. Sometimes I feel like people forget the God, that we serve or "pretend" to serve. We act like the bible is just a bed time story. "Oh, dont you know that Jesus died for me and you?" That is not a lie, but how can we act like its a fairytale? Jesus died for us, it was not fake, he really died for us!! I look at my nieces and nephews and I think, how, how could God do that? Knowing the pain that he would suffer. The way he would be treated. How? Its because he loves us. Because he knew it was the only way. I think its about time we stop going around acting like the world is going to last forever, and start living the life that God wants us to live. Start overcoming this world that has destined people for death, with the everlasting life that God offers. Really showing people the true love of God. Living to his standards, and stop pretending like we have it all figured out. We dont, I know I dont. But what I do know, is that God gives us grace. Even if we dont deserve it. So why dont we begin to show that same grace to this world.
In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.
