time flies

Its past midnight, and I have a final in the morning.. but I am overwhelmed at the speed of life.

I am sitting in an empty apartment, having just said bye to one of my last neighbors, and I never thought this day would come. The walls are so white, and everything is so bare! I just spent hours cleaning everything, so it's definitely the cleanest it has ever been, but its not mine anymore. I will write more about this year later because I definitely need to study, but I am just sitting in silence and shock at how fast this year flew by. I have definitely grown so much, God has been so good. As much as I hate sitting by myself (especially in a bare room), its good to reflect and to remember how great God is, and how much of a protector he truly is. How much he has allowed me to endure, and how much stronger and better I am now. How much that I hated the hard times then, but am SO THANKFUL for the hard times now. How much God has used this year to shape me and mold me into the woman of God he truly wants me to be, how greatful that he allowed me to be broken and be so dependent on him. All the while living in this room that I am about to leave forever, all the while being surrounded by people God has used, who have already left this hall forever. While they have left, and while I am fixing to leave, the memories will always be around, and God has forever changed me. I am so thankful to have hope that "one day he's coming, oh glorious day,"
I will write more when I have time, but that is whats on the top of my head. :)
I miss everyone in Laurel.. they need to come back ASAP.. its harder to blog by yourself.
