I have been away from the 'blogosphere' for quite some time. I apologize to anyone who came along expecting to see a new post.
I had a fantastic summer with my family and I fully enjoyed life for those two months. I admit, that like many other kids out there, I was disappointed to see my summer take it's departure. I take courage knowing that it will return next year, God willing.
I am ready for this fall and all that it has to bring. I started classes today and I will (sadly) pack away my t-shirts and flip-flops to pick up boots and books. I find that things go a lot smoother when you simply wrap your mind around it, remembering why it needs to be done and what will come of it.
I read a quote on Facebook today that read, "You can be who you choose to be. It's an act of discipline, but it can be done." I have resolved that I will work to a point where I can be pleased with my efforts to do what needs to be done. There is nothing that I can't do when God is on my side (Phil. 4:13).
Summer is just about over and it feels like it's talking a piece of me with it, for more reasons that the obvious. I'm happy though, knowing that all's well that ends well. I'm ready for whatever is ahead.
Enjoy your day and may the joy of the Lord be your strength!
