Recollection

Photoshoot from this afternoon - the first time my mom took my photos.
After I got home from the most intense week of my life, I was so pleased to see that 2 packages had arrived; 1. This new dress from Sugarlips, surprisingly soft to the touch, SO unique. I actually felt prettier in it. Lol - good stress relief.  2. A box of donated bags from Maurices that will go towards next year's annual Girls Day. It's an event I direct!

Boy-oh-boy, was this week interesting.  It was more intense than any final week in my life.  Intense preparations on Sunday-Monday night - HOURS of work for an event I directed/hosted on Tuesday.  Followed by an Academic Research Conference Wednesday-Sunday.  I also entered a contest to WIN $1,000 to donate to help END HUMAN TRAFFICKING! VOTE HERE So I spent over 12 hours asking hundreds of people to vote via every social media outlet I owned.  This took away a lot of my sleep and the stress led to a loss of appetite- which I didn't mind. I was also stressed because I had the...

Unfortunate confrontation with the reality of college students. I don't fit in AT ALL - I do not understand the mindset of college students nor see their priorities, motives, and maturity.  Aside from the physical state of their bodies, I had always held the conception that they were mini-adults. But I feel like many of them are reckless and irresponsible.  I was shocked and did not really know how to emotionally respond, but I have been told that my mindset is a mixture of an old lady and a child.

The Breakdown.  4 hours of sleep, 5 nights in a row, on top of all the stress and side factors from minor separation anxiety/realization left me bawling right in Casino's buffet line.  It came out of no where. Thank the LORD ALL MIGHTY, who is MIGHTY TO SAVE, that my new friend Queenosob was there to be like a mother and friend.  Another friend from the research conference as well as, my blog friend Stephanie, and 2 friends over the phone helped me seek Strength in my Lord. 

The Realization.  If I had the heart of my Lord Jesus Christ, who was killed for our redemption, there would be not one hour that I would not cry.  So much is happening in this world, that breaks His heart. I hope to be one person who can come at least half-close to making him smile/proud of how I live.  In this way his Love will live on and on.
