//Out-of doors. . .
In the air is the aroma of freshly clipped grass, the honeyed twinge of blossoms blooming, and the ready warmth of continuous sunshine. It’s been in the upper 60s and 70s here in Middle Tennessee the past few days, and every spare moment will find me on the front stoop, getting my reading in (and just a wee bit of fresh air).

//Busy working on. . .
Uncountable amounts of school! I am picking up my pace to finish this leg of the race of my senior year with endurance, joy, and diligence. It’s hard. A bit trying. Itching with excitement to finish and move on. But never without a lesson learned when the day is through.

//Currently reading. . .
Jesus on Every Page by David Murray
Peace Child by Don Richardson

Bird by Bird by Anne Lamot
Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr. & E.B. White

//At the Desk. . .
Speech assignments! Learning the art of preparing speeches and executing them in a way so that my audience won’t be snoring! It’s harder than it may seem, but rewarding in many ways.

//Beyond the Desk. . .
Besides the house tasks and personal responsibilities here at home, I have so been enjoying the time I can spend outside (barefooted or flip-flopped) with my siblings. Quite a few bike rides and shooting baskets have occupied my time!

//In the Evening. . .
Journal writing, family time, munching dark chocolate, and catching up on free time reading.

//Reflecting on. . .
Being constantly amazed at God’s goodness of each and every day he gives, knowing that we are here for only a short while, but being convicted to live each day to His glory and realizing each moment is a beautiful gift!

//Through Scripture. . .
Reading through Exodus and Matthew in the mornings, Romans at night with the family.
It is an amazing thing to be reading through both the old and new testaments in the same sitting, and seeing God’s sovereign hand through it all!

//Happy About. . .
/That spring is here and summer is on the way!
/That I am about to embark on another part of life’s journey by finishing up my “formal schooling”
/A steaming mug of earl grey in the morning.
/A chuck of dark chocolate when I break from school in the afternoon.
/Hearing occasional stories from my wonderful Granddad, that always inspires my pen.

//Inspiring Quote. . .
“To love means loving the unloveable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.”
~G.K. Chesterton
