Philippians 4

So, tonight I finally got to spend some time with God, something in college that is very valuable. Anyways, tonight, I turned to Philippians, and a verse in chapter 4 really spoke to me. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." -- Philippians 4:6

In college, there is a lot of stress, a lot of worrying, a lot of trying to figure out exactly who you are. It's taken me quite a while to learn that through all of this, you can't loose sight of God. He loves us so much, and wants to be a part of our lives. The least we can do is give up our fears, our worries, and our stress. Trust me, this makes our lives a lot happier.

If you haven't read it recently, I encourage you to read Philippians, just reading a few lines in will make you smile; the happiness in Paul's words are contagious!

Weight Watchers, Stealing Fruit, and RA News

Okay, I know it's been a really long time since I last wrote, so here is the update of my life.

I start weight watchers this morning, and I'm really excited! Lunch was good, and very healthy, and was only 10 points! YAY! So, if you don't know how Weight Watchers works, they give everything points, and so, you can only have a certain amount of points per day based on your current weight, and height. Anyways, today was a great start.

Onto stealing fruit.... There is a huge lack of fresh fruit at this school, so when you find it, you need to stock up on it. On my way out of the dining hall, I snagged 2 bananas and a couple of oranges. I'm not saying it's an accomplishment, it's actually really easy! But, it's exciting. It makes me feel adventurous!

Okay, so I didn't get picked to be an RA, and I'm okay with that. Less responsibilities for me! Actually, this gives me more time to devote to SGA, and I can actually run for Class President without going nuts!

Anyways, I promise to write more often!
