the good stuff

uganda is now reality. most likely, if the Lord wills, i will be spending the majority of may in bolova, uganda. the Lord is good and faithful to those who love Him and follow His commands. i am praying for continued guidence about some other important issues concerning uganda. i know the Lord is on my side, and that whatever He wants is what will happen. praise Him for that.

i went to my first RUF last night. it was a really awesome experience. it is awesome how much it took me back to eastwood chapels. i sorta miss those. we talked about when abraham buried sarah in genisis. it was strangely ironic because i just finished writing a paper about death, and loosing a lost one.
it is amazing the things you can still learn years after an experience like mine with mamaw. it was so hard to lose her, and i still struggle with remembering that she is not here. one thing i always loved about the holidays was seeing her and being with her. it is only the second time to have the holiday season without her. once again, the only one to carry me through this is the Lord. i know with out a doubt that mamaw is with Him. thankfully i know that i will indeed see her again. however, this does not allow me the comfort it should.

i am thankful today for the friends i have made so far here at auburn. these girls will always be some of my closest and dearest friends. whether they are adpi's or not, i have met some amazingly beautiful young women of God. i am thankful that the Lord has put these people in my life to challenge and spur me onward to a closer relationship with God. they are awesome, and they are my sisters... some more than others. <> ha

and so, i am getting mentally prepared for this rather joyful homecoming. there are so many wonderful things about coming home. i am pumped to the extreme. God is going to show up and show off this week at home. family is so important and i get to have a large dose of it this week. i am so BLESSED.

ok so christmas is coming. yes indeed it is only a few weeks away. so here is to paige... i am singing you a christmas song...

joy to the world, the Lord is come, let earth recieve her King. Let every heart prepare Him room and heaven and nature sing, and heaven and nature sing, and heavn heaven and nature sing.
He rules the world with truth and grace and makes the nations prove. the glories of his righteousness, and wonders of His love, and wonders of His love, and wonders wonders of His love.

this is the good stuff, the stuff God gave me, the life i am privilaged to live. praise Him forever.
