Today, was absolutely GORGEOUS, we had perfect weather. There wasn't a cloud in the sky all day. The temperature was a warm 75 degrees. God's creation was breathtaking to me today, not that it isn't always... but the beauty of a sunny, warm day speaks to my soul. The picture is the sky I see from my backyard as the sun sets. I completely forgot to take a picture of the beauty of mid-day, but that can be rectified tomorrow when we have the SAME weather!! (My soul is squealing with excitement.)
Today was rather productive. I finished one of my scholarship applications and got the rest in order so that I can finish them up later tonight or tomorrow. I bought my graduation dress at JC Penney's, it's super adorable :) I might take a picture and put it up later, or I might just wait until graduation day so you will get the full effect of my excited face :D I also went to Christian Gift and bought A Young Woman's Call to Prayer, because I definitely need to focus more on my prayer life and I bought God's Story (ESV), it's a version of the Bible in English Standard which is supposed to be really close to a word for word translation, even more so than KJV... at least that's what the guide to all the translations said :)
The rest, as they say, is history. I spent my afternoon doing some reading for English, hung out with my parents in the backyard, read some blogs, and plan on spending some major time with God after I finish up this post! :) I truly do love my life. I am beyond blessed.
