Jubilant Thursday


Oh man!
It is Thursday, which for me and my crazy school schedule means my Spring Break Starts!
I could not be more ready!
I have a wonderful week planned, which means that the blog posts should be equally as great!

Oh and this is me at lunch with Ryan celebrating Spring Break! {yummy Mexican}

















I feel like we have a lot to catch up on, but here  is what is most important for now.

~God is certainly teaching Ryan and I patience.
We are currently in the final stages with some job interviews and anxiously awaiting call backs! {and when I say anxious, I mean anxious}
So the waiting days are really difficult and I try to prepare myself for disappointment.
But I want the security of those jobs so bad.
I want to know that we will be set after graduation, no worries.
I am a planner!
And then today, in the midst of the crazyness, I remembered this verse and looked it up to read His promise to us.
{Read it, it is long but it is worth it.}


Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6: 25-36
Why do we {I} forget? and so quickly?
God, has not, and will not leave me stranded, alone, unclothed, unfed.
HE KNOWS MY PLAN! WHY WORRY SO MUCH!

{why I blog 101: it is like self therapy, and free!}

~ I had mentioned that Ryan and I would be doing Sacrificial Spring Break in a previous post. We are really excited to see what God has planned for us during this time. I will just fill you in quickly on what it is exactly. Sacrificial Spring Break was started 2 years ago by college students from NCSU who go to our church, Vintage 21. It's whole purpose is to sacrifice your spring break in order to love on and give back to our city of Raleigh. We will be going to 5 different sights in Raleigh to do projects and build relationships with the people that Vintage can then continue through community groups. This year we are working at an elementary school, the New Bern Transitional Home, Neighbor to Neighbor, the Boys and Girls club, and local non-profit farm that grows food to give to the needy. We are so very excited to be a part of this and I can't wait to share some stories an pictures!



~Finally Ill leave you with yet another picture of Sox.

This fine weather has put a little pep in his step per say!

Hope you all are enjoying your Thursday!
