Oh my oh my oh my.

Well... 3 weeks into pledging and there is no other word to describe it except wonderful. If you are a part of the small army of people I called crying today you may ask why is it wonderful, you have had a HORRIBLE day... Here is the answer. It is wonderful because I have tons and tons of girls who will back me up no matter what. It is wonderful because it is what God has planned for me to do. It is wonderful because people are pushing me to my limits, breaking me down to see my true character. It is wonderful.

Although if you were to ask me at random times of the day if this process is wonderful I most certainly would say its not, but looking back over what has happened, the relationships that have come because of it, and the woman I think I am becoming is why this process is wonderful.

Over the past three weeks I have had to FULLY rely on God for all of my needs. If you know me at all you know I am a control freak and you know how in control I like to be of my life. (You think I would have given up on that mindset during my blood disorder but old habits die hard).

This verse has been so near and dear to my heart and I really believe that all of the girls in Squigs and Sigma Theta Chi strive to live by this verse... I know it is the club verse and I am not try to be cliche about it.... but it is really, really really a wonderful verse and usually we stop at verse 33.... but I have found such comfort in verse 34 as well:

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

I am so excited to see what is coming up for me in the next few weeks and months. I am striving to find joy in EVERYTHING I do.
