wrapping up

our house is freezing. it’s Boone, and Boone is normally a cold place, but it has been in the 60’s this week-remember, it’s december. but today it’s been in the 40’s. and we can’t bring ourselves to turn on the heat because apparently it cost an arm and a leg to heat this house. i have had numb fingers since i got home from class….
     but the good news is, economics is over FOREVER! i’m not sure that i have ever been more thrilled about anything in my life. that class has caused more anxiety, tears, panic, doubt, and frustration than any other class i’ve ever taken. but i am happy to say that i took (hopefully) my last exam in there this morning, and there’s not even a final, glory to God. prayers would still be appreciated until grades come out. i will say that i’m hopeful and optimistic. my dear friend/roomie sent me the sweetest text this morning before i got to class with a bible verse (psalm 16.11 “you will make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”), and an encouraging word. it was long and very thoughtful, but my favorite part said, “He has you and knew you would have trouble with econ since the day he formed you.”she was so right. he did know. and he has prepared a path for me, and for some reason, economics was on that path. maybe one day i’ll know why.
     the semester is winding down, although it feels like a tornado is going to hit first in the form of finals. it’s okay though, i’m ready. i will be ready. i’m spending the rest of today not thinking about school because it has consumed far too much of my life for the past 2 weeks. so i’m thankful for this day of rest. i get to look at pintrest without feeling guilty, check my favorite blogs, do some christmas shopping and spend as much one-on-one time with Jesus as i want. and the last CRU of the semester is tonight, but it is christmas sweater themed. so if you’re having a bad day, that should cheer you up. all my favorite seniors who are graduating will say their goodbyes tonight and i’m not ready for it. kleenex please.
   what will you take time to do today that’s not on your to-do list?
