Beautiful Things

Over the past two weeks, I have been very busy with studying. This Bible school is super intense - sometimes it seems like I'm in exam week of college over and over again! I've also been distracted with thoughts of what I'm doing after the school is over. But amidst the stress and craziness, I have enjoyed the beauty of little things.

Waking up to the sound of birds chirping
Enjoying a cup of steaming coffee surrounded by friends
Being still and soaking up the morning air
Finding new wisdom in a verse that before was incomprehensible
Folding warm laundry fresh out of the dryer
Going out for desserts with the girls
Jogging on a Saturday morning
Receiving encouraging words from friends

Sometimes my mind is overwhelmed with all the homework, and I just need time to soak it all in. In these little moments God gives me joy and peace about being here. Some days are great - I feel energized and ready to learn. And others I am just worn out. But I know that despite the ups and downs of life, everything will work out. For we know that God causes all things to work together for the good of those who love him, those who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

Here are some of the joyful moments I've had over the past two weeks:

Reuniting with my DTS family

Rooming with these amazing women!  
Dessert night with the girls

Life is good. Thanks for your prayers! :)
