I've got something to say.

"You are heaven's Haley's Comet; we have one shot at seeing you shine.  You offer a gift to society that no one else brings.  If you don't bring it, it won't be brought."  --Max Lucado

Senior Banquet

 Instead of picking one gown color, we decided to be a rainbow.

It happened.  I graduated.  I am officially a high school graduate and a college freshman.

My weekend was amazing.  If I tried to thank every person individually here and now I know for certain I'd leave somebody out... So, thank you to everyone who attended my graduation; you are the bomb.  Thank you to all the behind the scenes people that made this thing happen; everything was beautiful.  And one big thank you to my parents who put in so much hard work and dedication these last many years to giving me the best education possible.

What an incredible journey I've had up 'til now.  It's been so fun...and gone by so fast.

Am I ready for this growing up thing?  I think so.  God'll be with me.  I can do it.

The song below was kind of my theme song for graduation.  It says that if we're living and breathing, we have something to say.  That if our heart is beating, we have a message to share.  God's love is in us and speaks through us.  That is my hope for the coming years...that the Lord will shine through me.  


Philippians 2:13 & 15, "For it is God who is working in you, enabling you both to will and to act for His good purpose. that you may be blameless and pure children of God who are faultless in a crooked and perverted generation, among whom you shine like stars."

(though unfortunately I didn't have a graduation ceremony)I love this song too, and I'm sure the Lord will use you in amazing ways!! All He wants is for us to be close to Him and He'll do the rest! I've seen this so much in my life, and it's amazing :) Growing can be so scary is true, but like you said, He'll be with us, so there's nothing to be afraid! Welcome to the college world, I'm sure you're gonna love it, and I wish you all the best!
