"But it's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then."
-Alice, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Do we change from day to day? Should we?

According to Romans 12:2, we should rely on God to create a change in us. I like the way the New Living Translation puts it:

"Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, b
ut let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect."

After reading that verse today, I've come to realize that it's okay to change. In fact, God expects and requires change! Every day, I should allow room for Him to work in me.

I hope that I am different today than I was yesterday; and I hope that I am different tomorrow that I was today!

"There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears."

Philippians 1:6, The Message

Mrs. Trent's Unfortunate Event

It's my last semester...obviously I'm excited (note the countdown on the bottom of the page).

All summer, I looked forward to doing my internship and graduating. This was going to be my first semester taking less than 15 hours. Until now.

I was told last week that I am 3 credit hours short to graduate, which translates to one measly class. My advisor was off-campus all summer, so she was unable to check my transcripts, and the missing link went unnoticed until just last week. Fortunately, the dean of the history department is going to let me participate in an independent study to make up the credits. Thank goodness!
