Things that I've learned.. And relearned... And relearned.....

God has been working on my heart this year. He's showing me how to have a good attitude.

Last night I decided to think of all thing things that I'm looking forward to in the fall. I came up with a pretty big list. I've been so concerned with all the things that are hard, that I've been worrying about them. Worrying is not ok. So listing the happy things reminded me that there are good things coming. It's hard to transition for summer to fall for me. I get worried about school, "What will my teachers be like?" "Will I be able to deal with the homework load?" "What if I mess up!?!"

I ALWAYS do that. But God showed me that I should not be worrying. I should be grateful for the happy things and leave the worrisome things to God. He can handle them. He has it all planned out!!!

Now I shall list all of the happy things.

  • The colors of fall
  • Making new friends at school
  • Learning more about Jesus
  • My birthday!!!
  • Seeing Amelia every weekday!
  • Getting to wear coats and jeans all of the time because of the cold
  • New Challenges
  • New things to laugh about
  • Halloween!
  • Thanksgiving!
  • Mini holidays! (football games)
  • Driving to school!
  • Not paying for school!
  • Learning about Jesus' love
  • Seeing my brothers and sisters from CSA (Christian Student Association)
  • Learning new things!
  • Gray days!
  • Rain!
  • Fog
  • New cute fall clothes!
"...A man can receive only what has been given to him from heaven" John 3:27b Good and the bad, God has a plan. I look forward to seeing it unfold!

I still don't understand who in their right mind would drive 6 hours to watch a boring football game.

Ahahahaha, having to wear jeans and a coat everyday definaely qualifies as a SAD thing for me, but.. I'm glad you find it exciting. ;) Regardless of the fact that it's FREEZING COLD, Fall is still definately the most beautiful time of the year. The air is so crisp and cool and mmmm... :)
