5 months ago I was presented with a huge decision in my life. I recieved an acceptance letter to NMHU in Las Vegas NM. I could go or I could have stayed in Albuquerque. I choose to spread my wings and fly off to NMHU. Leaving home YES was very difficult and I had my moments. I cried the first 3 hours I was out here but it gets better. I have met so many people in my time out here and I have made so many new friends. God gave me this opportunity an opportunity that made me fully trust in HIM and HIS timing and HIS strength. As this semester is coming to a close I am so glad that I made the desision to come out here. The semester went by really fast and in 2 weeks I move back for 2 months then I will move back out here for another year! Although I will be coming back some of the wonderful people I met will not be and that means it will be difficult to say “see you later friend”. The friendships I have made out here are strong. These friends arent just friends they become like a part of your family. : ) I am exicted to get to be home with my family and friends in ABQ for 2 months but I will definetly miss school. I can’t wait to come back in the Fall!
Day 3- Today I am thankful for nature and the beauty of the Lord. As I went on my walk this morning with my dog and my nephew I was amazed at the beauty that surrounded me. I am thankful for the leaves that change colors. I am thankful for the clouds that form differently. I am thankful for the beautiful view of the mountains. I am really just thankful for everything that is around me.
Today I am thankful for my real and adopted family. I am thankful that I have these great people to turn to. I am also glad that they pour into my life and give me love and guidance. I am so grateful for all those who I am close to and who love me and I consider family. I am thankful that I have these people because they have made me who I am today. They are all in my heart and have a huge impact in my life.
For the next 30 days I will be posting daily about what I am thankful for and why. Sometimes its hard to stop and think and really count your blessings and think about some of the things we are thankful for.
Today I am Thankful for….. the children in my life. I have a little brother and a nephew that I love to death and would do anything for. I am so thankful they are in my life. They always have smiles on their faces and can brighten anyones day. I call them my little buddies. And boy have my little buddies impacte dmy life in great ways. Thank you little ones for the love you show and the smiles you give.
This last week I have been spending a lot of time around my 2 year old nephew and my 5 year old brother. Being around kids is one of my favorite things. They inspire me and can always make me smile when I am down. Just watching these children this week has inspired me to write this blog entry!
As I spent time with my brother and nephew this week I noticed that they try to do a lot on their own. When they try to do something that they are unable to do they get mad but they keep trying. When you tell them you will help them they say “No, I can do it on my own.” They think they can do everything on their own and that nothing can stop them. But in the end you have to come to the rescue help them.
This reminds me of my relationship with Christ sometimes. I daily try, try, and try to do everything on my own. i try to hold everything in my own hands. I daily try to decide on my own both little and big decisions and actions. I try to deal with and fix the problems I have on my own. I try to find comfort in others and other things and not God. I was not intended to handle and do all this on my own. I need to put it in the hands of someone who can hold it. That person would be my savior Jesus Christ. I cannot do it on my own.
Sometimes I find it hard to give everything to God. It’s really is hard! But in the end I have learned that HE is the one who controls my life and HE wants to help us and wants us to turn to HIM!
You should live every day like it’s your last day because one day you’re gonna be right.
I was browsing through some quotes about our journey here on Earth, this journey we call life. There is so much to life and we need to look at life as precious because it is. Lately I have been shown that lif eis precious and it can end in a flash. We never know when it’s our last day here or even the last for the one’s we love. Lately I have been treating life the way we all should and acting like its the last day I may have. I tell those important people in my life that I love them and I let them know how important they are to me. As I write this blog I have so many thoughts in my head and they are so disorganized. Im sorry if I was all over o whatever just wanted to get this out.
Tomorrow I begin a new semester in college. This will be my last semester that I will be attending college in Albuquerque. I got my acceptance letter to New Mexico Highlands University for Spring semester and I will be leaving in January!
Lately I had been praying about what school I should attend after CNM. I prayed God would guide me where He wants me. I sent in my application and I prayed, as well as others, that if this was His will then let His will be done. I received my acceptance letter in the mail a week ago.
Everyone keeps asking me how I feel about it and I have to admit I am excited!! I have wanted to attend Highlands since I graduated from high school and now is my opportunity. I am also experiencing some mixed emotions at times! I am happy and a bit scared but I know it will pass. I am ready to venture off and be my own person.
Although there is one thing that is getting me a little bit and that would be leaving. I know I am ready and I want to. I have so many people here who love me and support my decisions 100%. I have about 4 months left here in Albuquerque and I am going to make the best of it. I know I am not going that far away and I have technology to keep me in contact but its still a huge change for me. I am trusting in God 100% because I know with Him I am never alone!
God has a plan for my life and I am trusting in Him to guide me through my new journey!
