In 2010 ..

Dear 2010 you have brought me much to remember ..
  • I graduated with my Master's in Public Health
  • I moved out of New York and back to Texas
  • I moved in with my parents, hopefully only temporarily
  • I took a class to improve my science gpa so I can apply to med school
  • I interviewed for a full time job
  • I was in a friends wedding
  • I attended many, many weddings
  • I went to a Texas Tech football game as an alumni
  • I started going to a wonderful young adult ministry on Friday nights that has taught me more than I could ever imagine learning in 6 months
  • I started going to a new church
  • I ended the year about 10 pounds heavier than my heaviest
  • I spent Thanksgiving with my family after 2 years somewhere else
  • I bought my first car
  • I started working full time
  • I stood in line at Walmart for black Friday
  • I went 365 days without ice cream (and I have already bought some to eat at 12:01 tonight)
  • I learned about myself and what I really see in the future
  • I learned that if you are going to pray there is no use in worrying and if you are going to worry not to pray
  • I learned about myself and the importance of a season of singleness
  • I got to attend my brother's football and basketball games
  • I saw how syrup is made
2010 has had sooo many positives for me and so many changes. I know that 2011 is a year where many of my prayers will be answered and I am thankful in advance. I hope your 2010 has been great and I pray that the Lord keeps you into 2011 and for many more years to come. The best is yet to come!

Oh how He loves us

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realise just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

I just get tears in my eyes when I hear this song and actually listen to the words.

He is jealous for me.
