The temps are officially on the rise here in Chapel Hill but last week was a different story. I actually love the fact that it was freezing because I SO appreciate these higher temps. Vitamin D is good for the soul and I haven’t been outside in what feels like months. I love the crazy weather here, but year round 70 degrees would not be too shabby. I have to share that I am having a little bit of anxiety because David starts applying for fellowships in July – like, WHAT?! How are we already at this stage? You know how when you were younger you had a plan for your life? My sister actually cracked me up when we were at our family farm in Mississippi saying: “whelp, I’ve had a kid.. this is all I had mapped out for my life plan.. now I don’t know what to do” hahaha I totally understood what she meant. Maybe I’m not making sense but I definitely don’t have a life plan from here on out – I’m just living day to day. Which I guess is great since life’s a journey and not a destination. #blessed #framedQuote haha but seriously.. I got nothing. People have been asking us if we want to stay in North Carolina or if we are going to move back to Mississippi or if we are going to head further North and I’m like… ummmmmmmmmmmmm don’t we have to decide that in 5 years? NOPE, JULY.
Anyway, while I’m on a sharing life kick which I usually don’t do. I have to share something I heard on Sunday. David and I were listening to a Tim Keller sermon and he talked about how nobody’s life is perfect. Everyone has their struggles, challenges, disappointments and heartbreaks. And how your character is determined by what you do during those hard times. How, if you look to God during those pressure points of life, you grow in wisdom and mature and expand as a person. And if you don’t look to him you shrink and can feel bitter, isolated, and alone. It was just such a good reminder to always look to Him in every situation of life – especially the hurdles.
Anyway, hope you have a fabulous Wednesday and thank you so much for reading!
