this weekend was absolutely exhausting. starting thursday night and continuing until saturday night, our family was going crazy trying to everything for my brother’s graduation. we were constantly moving and cleaning and cooking and a million other things. needless to say, by the time sunday morning rolled around, i was sleepy. if it wouldn’t have been for oak leaf church, i probably wouldn’t have gotten out of bed at all…in fact, i’m pretty sure no one else in my family went anywhere.
i am convinced that i go to the best church ever. i’m not trying to brag or anything, but i honestly believe that God is doing AMAZING things through our church, and i can’t wait to see them all happen 🙂 it is so refreshing to be a part of a real church that wants to impact the surrounding community. i love it. i’m so glad that i am done with school and that i can become more involved in my church and in our community. i can’t wait 🙂
so, sunday (after church), several of our friends got together, because we all wanted to be together and hang out as a group one more time before bekah leaves for romania. i can’t believe that she’ll be leaving in less than a week now for ten weeks. i’m not sure exactly how i will survive. seeing bekah get emotional last night was absolutely heartbreaking. tracy and i got emotional just seeing her cry. this is going to be hard, and i know that the end of this week is going to be an emotional one, but at least i have time to prepare for it. the truth is, i couldn’t be more proud of my friend. she is one of the bravest people i know, and i know that she is going to make a huge impact in the lives of those children. i can’t wait to see God work through her over there, but here, i will be missing her. missing her and praying for her and waiting to hear from her 🙂 i have amazing friends with amazing hearts, and this is just one example.
i’m thinking that my dad was wanting to play cards tonight, so i’m going to go see if that’s the case or if he’s already asleep on the couch…which is also possible.
currently listening to: a colbie caillat song that i bought on iTunes – “dreams collide”…i love her voice.
