Easter weekend

It sure has rained alot lately. I used to love rain in college. I still like it but not as much now that I can't take naps and watch a movie while its pouring outside. Ohhh growing up... so overrated.

I feel like these past few weeks at work have gone by so quickly. My days have been FULL. 8:30-5:00. Alot going on at our retirement community=) I'm thankful that I have a job that I enjoy and look forward to each day. I was thinking the other day about timing and where I am in life now. Just a year ago I was busy, busy, busy taking 19 hours of classes in order to graduate on time. Many people told me to extend that over two semesters. That idea sounded so tempting, but something else told me no. I'm REALLY glad I didn't. I think about how the Lord placed me where I am. Who knows how long my job would have stayed open. I'm just thankful where I am. I'm thankful to have a job to learn things about life and about people. I like that my job involves things I love and being creative. I like that some of the people I work for are four, yes four, times my age. I love the lives I get to learn about and the things that has happened in those lives. I'm blessed.

This past weekend, the Braves opened up another season against the Washington Nationals. It was a fun and cold night at Turner field with some of my family. We had fun dancing, yelling, doing the wave and eating at the best worst place for you - The Varsity.

Yesterday, I celebrated the resurrection of my Savior. I'm so thankful that I know my God is alive and going to return one day. I serve a living God. I serve a good God. Scratch that. A great God. A God that was willing to send His perfect Son so that He could have a relationship with me. Knowing I would mess up time and time again, He still came. And still loves me. I don't understand it. But the good thing is, His ways and thoughts are higher than mine... so I don't really have to. I've listened to this song alot this weekend. I will share it because its too good not to.

He tore the veil AND made a way. Thank you, Friend.
