How's Married Life?

I'm married. Wow. I can't believe it's been so many months since I wrote my thoughts here, yet again it's been a pretty busy time in life.

I love being married!!! I'm learning a ton about myself in these first few months, and my appreciation for my wonderful husband grows every day - Louie's an awesome husband! I'm working hard at my dad's car place and Louie's working hard at G. Mtn. We're also in youth ministy at a small church, youth pastors of sorts. And we're about to (finally) send in our applications for CCC Staff, which is a relief and really exciting. We're both learning how to balance the daily, weekly and monthly things that come with being newly-weds and living with family and work, faith and fun time too. Those are daily lessons for me. It's been a great journey so far, and I can't wait to see God lead us!

I just wanted to at least put the basics out there, those of you who even read this probably know more than this, but for those of you who didn't, here it is :)

Miss you and hope all is well,

I'm sitting here at the library attempting to write one of the last papers of my college career and put together slides for one of my last "school-related" powerpoint presentations. I have been challenged within myself to consider what it is that I'm living for. Is it to graduate? To be done here at SCSU? To get married? Or is it to live for God first and foremost and rely on Him in and through all of those things? I hope that it's the last option, but in reality I do find myself sick with spring fever and the desire to be done with college already a bit overwhelming and a common thought. I hope that it is comforting to know that you're not the only one feeling this way, it is for me. I hope the Lord helps us all rely on Him and strive to please Him more than our group members or professors (although those are important for this time too). Keep on trusting Him, I tell myself, His plans are the best. And so I pray that He strengthens me to perservere and finish well.
