Just A Simple Hello

Life has a way of completely taking over at times. You get so caught up in the motions that you forget to take time out of your day to do simple things you love. Well, this is what happened to me over the past month or so.

Working full time, going to school, being very involved in church, and trying to maintain relationships can take it's toll on you. However, this past week I lost a friend due to being hit while riding his bicycle. His sudden death really hit me hard. We never know when our last day could be. It's time to just stop living a life of monotony and take the time to really enjoy every minute of this beautiful life we've been given. 

So I decided to start back up on with one of the things I love to do the most, blog. 

Okay, I'm going to give everyone a little update on what's going on in my life and some posts you can look forward to. 

1. Well, I tried super hard at Spanish but ended up having to drop it. I seriously studied for almost forty hours for one single test and I made a 60. I was done... But hey, you win some and you lose some, right?  

2. One of my dear childhood friends Candice, is getting married Saturday. Oh My goodness! I can't believe it happening. I can remember us talking late into the night about our weddings and now it's almost time for her big day! Really makes me realize just how fast time flies by.  

3. A couple of of weeks ago one of my good friends Summer, asked me if I would like to join her on a trip to New Zealand. Um, Heck ya! We are planning the trip for May 2016. I'm too excited! 

4. The Barnabas X team is starting to plan our 2015 trip to Rwanda. I can't wait to go back to my home away from home and see my Rwandan family. 

5. Now for what I'm most excited about... God is doing some truly phenomenal things in my life! He is changing me and guiding me in ways that I've never experienced before. It has set my heart on fire and made start seeking him relentlessly. I feel in my spirit that he about to turn my life upside down and do some wondrous things. I can't wait to share with you what all he is doing! 

Whelp, that's it for today. It feels so good to be emptying out all my thoughts to you guys again. I've missed it. I hope you all have a blessed Monday.  

Love, Amber
