throw your arms around my neck and hold me tightly

I have been in Claremont for about 3 months.  This means my internship is almost a quarter of the way over.  It is really unbelievable when I think about it.  I am really enjoying myself here.  I love the people, the area and the work.  I feel so blessed to have three great roommates who help keep me sane and give me a life outside of work.  I would be utterly lost and lonely without them.

When I think about where I am and what I am doing it gives me chills.  I would have never thought that I would be living in Southern California doing church ministry.  What is even more extraordinary is that I can clearly see how God led me here to this place.  I can see His hand in my life.  God is working in my life; I can feel myself changing.  It is frightening and exciting all at the same time.

a year older

My birthday was Friday.  I am now a 23 year old.  I don't really feel older.  It didn't even really feel like a birthday, but it was still fun and crazy.

This has been quite the busy week, as I said in my last post.

Reflecting on my life up to this point, I cannot believe how far I have come.  I never would have imagined I would be living in Southern California, working at a church and experiencing such wonderful and crazy adventures with some of my closest friends.

I feel so blessed.

I often wonder what my future holds.  I can clearly see God's hand in my life up to this point and know that He will provide for me in whatever comes next.

I am so excited for what is to come.

I don't think I have ever been happier.

It feels like a dream.
