New Layout

Yes, I changed the layout again. Yes, I'm actually writing! What a concept-- I write in my blog.
For those of you that know me well you may be confused as to why my background is books. Well, I am going to college next year so therefore I'm going to be doing a lot of reading whether I like it or not! And I have made a college decision -- I will be going to LaGrange College in the fall. It is a small, Methodist college in (what do ya know...) LaGrange, GA (South West GA). I am very excited about that. In about a month I will be going to Orientation which I am so excited about!

In response to my last post, I have learned that my decisions are a lot easier if I stop thinking about what I am going to do. Instead, I need to think about what God needs to do and how I fit into that plan. My plan was Berry. His plan is LaGrange and I can already see how that is a better choice for me. Don't get me wrong, Berry is a great school. It's just not for me. I have learned so much other stuff since I last updated. God, even though I didn't notice at the time, has been teaching me all sorts of things about growing up, letting go and remembering that God is #1 on my priority list.

Please pray for me that I continue to stay true to God and His plan -- not my plan. Clearly, his plan is far superior to mine.

Go 'head girl :) I'm so proud of you. I wish I had known at 19 that I could rest in the knowledge that God's always had my best in mind and that God's best is WAY better than my best. I can't wait to see all the places God is going to take you. Love you <3

From the perspective of hindsight, you are so fortunate to actually have a relationship with Christ as you enter into your collage years.

It will be your hedge of protection, your strong tower your plumb line and your pillar of fire to guide you as you enter into life.

God's word is never wrong!

The psalm I am working on memorizing next is PS 121: 3-4
But the whole things is very applicable for you as you step out into the world!

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Love
R
