Home Again

So it's been about 3 months since coming home from the beautiful island of Kauai, and things have been going really well. For starters, my family moved! We needed to downsize because of money, so we're in a smaller house now but still in the same town and I love it. Even though my new room is smaller than my last, I've somehow managed to fit more into it, and it's become a nice little dwelling. My two bookshelves turned into four and I bought a loft-bed so that I could have more floor space, which is now occupied by a futon couch and a desk. This picture is before the desk and rug went in.

I've also returned to the community college that I got my AA at to take a few more courses while I'm home. The tentative plan is to go into nursing, so I'm taking classes like Sociology, Chemistry, and Biology right now...but I still haven't fully committed to go through a nursing program yet. Even though I feel like that would be a great profession to enter and know that the Lord could use me in so many different avenues if I were a nurse, I'm not going to rush into any big decisions. I still have it on my heart to finish Bible college, and don't know what to do. Right now I'm committed to home for this fall....but after that....so many possibilities await! So I'm basically praying and saving $$, because I have no idea where I'll be in 2013. I could be home, back in Kauai, or even heading to South Sudan! Wherever God opens the door I am going to go through it. But for now I am home, and it is sweet. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful, loving family. They are all so different but awesome in their own ways, and while I have the chance I want to cherish the time I do have with them. I also have a new job, working at the Newspaper in town. It's mainly office work and a little marketing, but it pays decent and the hours are good so that I can go to school and still enjoy life!

And God is good. In the dry desert land He is a stream of living water for my soul!
