Its been a while

Hello friends. 
It has been a while since I posted on here, there has been a lot going on in the past couple weeks. 
My roommate and her sister are both back for a couple months from being on the mission field. What brings them home is a sad occasion though, they lost their brother in a motorcycle accident. Katie is working in East Asia and Sammie is working in Australia. It has been great getting to see them and spend time with them, I am actually having dinner with them and one of the other roomies tonight- cant wait! 

School has been crazy, I am doing alright it is just like pulling teeth to finish. The end is in sight though and that is encouraging! 

My niece, Ally, is spending the week with me. It has been interesting thus far, but I think she is having a good time. She is the one that has been taking me leaving the hardest, ive tried to explain it but I dont think she gets it yet. One day. I am taking lots of pictures and then ill make her a little scrap book of this week and give it to her before I go so she can having something from our time this week. She has always stayed a day or two with me during the summer, but never an entire week! 

To commemorate all of the people listed above- photos of each! Enjoy!*
*Disclaimer: I said I wouldn't put these on facebook.... i said nothing about not putting them on my blog!

Scared Stiff

I was at work today, and one of the admissions counselors came up and was asking me about Germany and I realized that I am scared stiff. I dont know how it will be done, God is going to have to step in because I can not do this alone! My roommate said yesterday that the summer was half over and then I realized how much there is to do before I leave. It is so scary! 

Quote for today: To often we are scared, scared of what me might not be able to do. Scared of what we can do. Scared of what people will think if we tried. We let our fears stand in the way of our hopes. Why? There's really no time to be afraid. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Everything!

The Power of God

These past few days on the beach have been absolutely breath taking and humbling. The might and power of God. Just to take it all in. Each piece of sand, each star in the sky is His, and so am I. The thought is just mind blowing.

Bored in the Valley

So these pictures are a result of me being bored in the valley a few weeks ago. I was just playing with slow shutter speeds and low exposures. 

I got a letter in the mail today- ANOTHER donation!!!! This was a $1000 donation from a family at my dads church!!!! I nearly started to cry when i opened the letter! So praise God for that!!!

I am about to leave on a family vacation to Pensacola, FL so there should be some fun family pics up the next couple of days.
