With the Christmas and New Year holiday fun gone, it’s time to get back to school! How has that been for you? I started on Monday, so I’ve been slowly getting back into it. I was surprised by how much I actually missed it during the Christmas break. I was longing to something other than the Christmas break norm of reading, chatting with friends, and looking at blogs. Seriously, my poor friends and I were running out of things to talk about! I was counting down the days to start my history course, get back to my ASL, and Algebra. I couldn’t wait to learn!

 But, then it hit me.

  I felt empty. School had taken over my life. It was my goal. It was my every thought. What do I have to do next? What should I study for? Oh dear! I should do more Algebra. Look at the time…I still haven’t done my American Sign Language yet. 

I would get soooooo stressed out about it.

Because I forced myself into thinking school was everything.

I forgot something really important.

Reading my Bible.

Talking to God.

Praying.

And, most importantly, being like Jesus.

I became grumpy and stressed. Making my needs important. My grades. How much school I got done. I seriously forgot that Jesus loved me even if I was behind in algebra a bit. I didn’t have time to read the Bible…but Jesus had time to speak those words for us to read.

It isn’t about me. It is about Him!

I learned more than I thought I did over Christmas break. A lesson worth learning! Thank you Lord for teaching me. I wonder what my next lesson will be? 🙂

What about you? What has God been teaching you? Do you get caught up in life and forget about after this life sometimes?

This Beautiful Sunrise

Hey everyone! Not long ago I got some pictures of the sunrise. I really like the way it looked so I thought that I would show you some of the pictures I took! I hope that you like them. 🙂

picture11

I love the way this first one looked. If only the trees weren’t there. We live in the woods so all of the pictures that I try to get with the sunset or sunrise always has trees in the way. Other then that I really like the way it turned out.

Here is the next one. I took this one a few minutes after I took the other one.

So, What did you think? Do you ever take pictures of the sunrise?

I hope that you all have a great week!
