Hey everyone! I hope that you are having the best November, and adjusting to this weather hopefully! ( I haven’t for sure ) November has been another crazy busy month for me, and I am so excited to be telling you all about it. But first, since Thanksgiving is tomorrow, I need to talk about that for a bit 🙂 Thanksgiving is super amazing and exciting, and probably my favorite holiday. I mean, all the food is pretty great, and I love driving the couple hours to go see my family in Ohio. Picking out the perfect Thanksgiving outfit and getting updates about everyone’s lives is so much fun. As I get older, I appreciate family time more and more.
I was scrolling through Twitter this morning and I saw a tweet that said something like this:
“What if you woke up tomorrow morning and all you had is what you thanked God for yesterday?”
This made me think so much about life. How often do we thank God for all of our laughs, our family, or the blessings He has poured onto us. There is so much to be thankful for, and sadly, a lot of times we don’t appreciate it until it is already gone. God is constant but He changes everything. So this Thanksgiving, I am thankful for where I am at right now. I’m thankful for my education, my amazing friends, and all the little things that make life a little more enjoyable. I am thankful that God has my best intentions at heart and wants me to have a fulfilling life, even if it isn’t at all what I planned or expected. I’m so thankful for what God is doing in my life!
Since I haven’t gotten to blog in a while, I’m gonna update you all about what is going on right now. First of all, I haven’t been blogging much because I’m not working on only one, but two books. I started off doing this challenge called NaNoWriMo, which stands for National Novel Writing Month, but I soon realized that I couldn’t write a good book in a month. So, that has soaked up a lot of my creative juices lately. I’m keeping the information on them secret, but, stay updated on my blog and see if I give any more clues in the next couple of months.
School has been pretty hard this session, but I am surviving! Being a high school student and part-time college student has its good days and bad days, but the good outweighs the bad for sure. It is about time for me to start narrowing down my major and picking a college, so prayers for wisdom would be greatly appreciated from all of you! Right now I am leaning towards Journalism and Digital Marketing but I think I probably change my mind every day. So, pray that God will make a college and major clear to me before the day I graduate haha.
A couple more exciting opportunities… I am helping out with a huge art piece that is going to be a memorial for something tragic that recently happened close to home. I can’t wait to be a part of this huge art piece that will bring God’s love from the worst of situations. Isaiah 61:3 talks about how God creates beauty from the ashes, and the piece I’m helping with will definitely be a wonderful representation of this verse. Once again, I’m keeping it a secret for now but I will share it with you all when it is complete or in the works!
I also am so excited to be able to head to Washington, DC in a couple of months to take part in the March For Life movement. Also,I am super excited to go visit Bryce in Virginia next month ( I knew you guys would want to hear about him haha. )
Me and my friend Morgan are in the works of creating a new Bible study and possibly a new charity project. So, life is pretty chaotic right now, but it is so good. I am so excited to see how God will work in my life in these upcoming months. I’m sure I forgot a few things, but that is what’s going on in life right now!
November is filled with lots of writing, planning, and reflecting on the goodness of Christ. I focused my time in The Word this month on the book of Luke and if you haven’t studied this book of The Bible yet you need to! November has been a somewhat tough month, yet so good. I’m so thankful for November even though I am not the biggest fan of the snow that has been coming our way this past couple of weeks. Anyways, I hope you all enjoyed this little life update and I also pray that you will have an amazing Thanksgiving with your families. Let me know about what is going on in all of your lives too! I am so curious:) Remember to spend time with those you love because life goes by so fast and it is so important. Enjoy all the yummy foods and laughter! – Cami
