Sorry guys but the pic I took on the phone today I can’t get from the phone to the computer…that is just wrong!! The sunrise this morning was incredible. A solid orange globe, bright and enticing. The haze diffused the brightness of the orange but added colors and glory of it’s own. God shows me something new everyday as I travel. I stopped to take a pic of the sunrise and as I sat there trying to figure out how I was going to capture this incredible beauty, a herd of deer jumped the fence not 25 feet from me. They tarried shortly along the bar ditch, listening to the running motor of my car. I sat still to watch nature at it’s finest. When they decided that I wasn’t a threat, they darted across the road, over the fence and off through the mesquite. You think I didn’t sit up and take notice of my life? Yes God, I am listening. I know that I haven’t always, I have pretty much ignored you. Thank you for showing me everyday that you are there and you are the one in command and that when I do listen to you that everything is gonna be okay. For many years I have tried to put it all in your hands, but listened to the people in my life and did my best to keep them happy instead of giving it to you and letting you make us all happy.
Would my Mom be proud? I don’t know. I think she would probably think that I was being rebellious again. But with the smile on my face and the song in my heart I would hope that she would be proud. I think my life right now would make her incredibly nervous. She was pretty nervous anyway. But….I think that with her watching over me and knowing exactly what is in my heart and soul that she in some way has her hand in all this. 🙂
Anyway, it is the end of the first week of school and you still can’t beat the smile off my face. Exhausted and with piles of homework, its gonna be alright. Classes are interesting and the professors are awesome and devoted to what they do. I have been to three different colleges and ASU is the first place I have been that passion reigns. It is a blessing for it gives the students that same passion to learn. I think that my favorite class so far is my mass communications class. It is a news writing class… imagine that. Geology is fun so far but I am learning that there is so much more to geology than just rocks. Geologists have a new fan for they are the one science that encompasses all the other fields of science together. It is pretty amazing. My Political Science class is unique to say the least. My professor is from Scotland, he is a very intelligent man. Well educated and very blunt about the American Government. My least favorite class is Computer programming. I don’t mind it, just not my favorite. May have something to do with my first computer programming class being with Mrs. Alexander. Okay C++ is a world away from Dos but still programing……
Above being in school, I am in a place that I love with all my heart and get to see people that I am the same with. As I get to Ballinger every morning, I tell the valley hello again, I say good morning in my heart to a sleeping angel, and to the path ahead of me. I have completely enjoyed this past week!! It has been so refreshing and so stimulating that words don’t even begin to describe it!
Put it in his hands and it WILL all work out!! Have a great day and a super weekend!
