Slow it down

Because I don’t have enough time to do a long blog post, I figured a few rambles might be nice instead.

I decorated my plain jane clipboard last week. Don’t you love it?!

The Fab Five includes the SR team of girls along with the 2 girl operators. Katie, my roommate, and Kaylah are pretty much part of the SR team! Until Monday, Kaylah refused to let me take her picture…but I got one out of her after a little persuasion. Meet Kaylah.

In addition to many new friends, I have been relying and thriving here because of my faith and relationship with Christ. I can’t count the times in a day that I’m whispering a little prayer of thanks or petition to God. The serenity prayer is my favorite to go to when I’m frustrated and everything is out of my hands. Today, I would like you to pray with me and for me.

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

It is in Christ that I receive my joy. It is my prayer that you too receive some homegrown joy rooted in Christ.
