It has been awhile since I've had a chance to sit down, write, and not feel guilty that I wasn't studying or working on something for school. 
So, time to play catch up. 
Starbucks is where I find myself on this warm, beautiful Saturday afternoon. A day of no work or school. Not sure I know what to do with myself.

I've waited awhile for this date. Thanks for joining me!

The last month of my life has been crazy!
My to-do lists usually helps me feel organized but my to-do list over the last month made me feel more overwhelmed than anything. ha

Thursday I finished my first semester of grad school! What a good feeling. Three weeks off of school and no homework and I couldn't be more thankful. Work has been good, some weeks busier than others and I'm continually learning so that's a good thing. I'm getting more of my own routine and I'm just thankful to have a good job. To add to the craziness, I was in the church's Christmas benefit concert that we did to raise money for the Salvation Army last weekend. Although the practice schedule was busy at times, I'm so glad I got to be home and a part of it. I love music, being at home with some of the people who have inspired me to love music like I do, and most importantly how cool it was to see all that God did through that in raising $5,500 for the Salvation Army. 

Part of me is feeling the effects of being 'out of college' in the fact that just cause its a break from school, work doesn't exactly follow that schedule. Welcome to the real world I guess. 

In relation to one of my recent posts where I expressed my heart and my struggle with my weight and self-image, (if you want to read that post or haven't check it out here) I have successfully put on about 5 pounds and maintained it since I've been back from Nashville. God really has helped me with this struggle and the encouragement I received after writing that blog really was confirmation that I was being obedient in writing it. Thanks for all the comments and encouragement and prayers. It means more to me than you know.

Tonight, I am going to a local church's Christmas play with my Dad and I'm excited to enjoy an evening off with my Dad. 

This Florida weather really isn't making it 'feel' like Christmas time, but I am so thankful for the season that we are in, for a break, a chance to catch my breath, and most importantly a time to thank God for sending His son to save me. 

I have some exciting things going on next week but thats for another post. 

What do you find yourself doing today??

  1. Bethany I so enjoy reading your blog! You have come a looonnggg way baby. It truly was a sacrifice of praise to give ourselves to the Christmas Benefit to help others. It was quite humbling when I was asked to dance. I felt so unworthy yet so honored to dance before the Lord. I have also been in a growing and adjusting phase at work yet it truly is a blessing from God.
