Gone to heaven

Ugh....it just had to happen while I was away at college

A dear man in our church just went to be with the Lord and my heart is broken. No not broken cause he went to be with the Lord, but broken cause I won't get to see him when I come home for Thanksgiving break! :(

He and his wife, Betty had been married for sixty years-what a wonderful and loving example of marriage! :)

Thank goodness I know we will see him again in heaven. :) Here are the lyrics to a song by Mark Harris called "I wish you were here." It is absolutely amazing, and it made me think of Brother Tom

I Wish You Were Here-performed by Mark Harris

I wanted to tell you how closely I've kept
The memories of you in my heart
And all of the lifetimes that we've had to share
Live even though we're apart

But don't cry for me
'Cause I'm finally free

Chorus:
To run with the angels
On streets made of gold
To listen to stories of saints new and old
To worship our Maker
That's where I'll be
When you finally find me

Verse 2
Now don't you be weary cause waiting for you
Are wonders that you've never known
Just hold on to Jesus, reach out for His hands

And one day they'll welcome you home

And that's when you'll be
Finally Free
Finally Free

Chorus

I wish you were here

Bridge
And all of the dreams that you treasure
Will soon come together
And that's when your sorrow will find tomorrow
And you will rise again

College work, college friends, College life! :)

WOWOW! It's been awhile since I've blogged and I apologize. This week was the first week of classes meaning homework, homework, and fellowship!

Can't believe I'm finally here!

COLLEGE IS AMAZING!!!!!

I'm so thankful to God for sending me to this one! It is a Christian college and the main thing that sold me on it was their spiritual emphasis. It seems like the majority here are serious about their relationship with God. We have chapel everyday, LifeCore groups every Tuesday night, Praise Gatherings on Wednesday nights, and opportunities for ministry at every corner!

I have had sooo much fun getting to know the people, my professors, and going to class and even doing homework! Yes you heard me right LOL

It's been a blast!!!

well except when my phone went off in class....TWICE :/

oops.
