For so many things this past year. Where do I even begin? The start of the year I suppose.
Jan – Apr 08
:: for finishing second year with a decent average, pulled up from first year massacre
:: for a new house in Guelph, for renewed relationships
:: a month of rest
June – Aug 08
:: an incredible job including making incredible friends, meeting very special people, learning more about how the world (sadly) works.. being shown how blessed I am to live the life that I do ~ a new perspective
:: going to Europe again – spending time with my Grandma and parents, seeing Italy, Greece and Turkey, getting fattened on the ship — grateful for the chance to see some of the Mediterranean
:: seeing close friends obey God’s call to enter the short-term missions field, and grow by leaps and bounds through their faith .. and wondering if I will be ever be called to go..
:: having incredible housemates; cooking, laughing, living together
:: learning a smidge of what my uncles went through to run a restaurant ~ a new perspective. Great groupmates (i.e. I haven’t wanted to kill them for incompetence like I hear many groups have)
:: the help of family when you are REALLY stuck with no where else to turn
:: meeting new, diverse frosh
:: a new aspect of serving – learning more about God and His Word
:: seeing spiritual growth in friends
:: another phase of our relationship; more understanding, better communication
Thank you Father for a year (so far) of blessings and learning experiences. Thank you for teaching me more about myself, the world, how people work.
