It has been a while since I have shown my face here. Since the last time I wrote, I have moved into an apartment that the Mr. and I will share after the wedding, I have started my Junior year of college, the Mr. and I have combined our bank accounts, and I have started paying BILLS! And I have started a BUDGET!
*Gasp* Adult things!
Do you ever feel like time just slips by? You go to sleep Monday night, thankful that the first day of the week is over, and you wake up and it's Friday morning. That has been happening a lot for me lately. I feel like I just moved in, and I feel like I just started class... But really I've already paid my second months rent, and I am half way done with my 8 week online classes. I am a quarter of the way done with this semester. Which means in just a few short months I will be out for the summer and I will be married...
I'm 20 years old and I can barely remember what happened yesterday because it went by so fast... My name is Symone Hurd (soon to be Symone Nichols) and I struggle with being still. This is something I talk about often in my writings, the need to be still. The need to just sit down and let God take care of me right where I am, rather than running away from a moment.
We grow up too fast... Now, do not get me wrong, I am VERY excited and VERY blessed to be right where I am, but it was just yesterday that I was graduating Junior High, and meeting the man I would marry, and graduating from High School, and starting college.
Why do we let life drive right past us?
I feel a verse coming on!!
In the College Bible study I attend with some of my nearest, and dearest friends, we have been studying in the book of Luke. I feel as if this is the book I need to be studying right now. There is a desire and a longing in me to draw closer to God, and when I hear what He has to say through Luke, it hits home.
