Life Update

Again, I am truly sorry for not posting much on my blog lately. Life has been quite a whirlwind and has taken me for a ride. Not a fun one I might add. As I have told you guys before I have been struggling with school this year. The classes have been challenging as well as some of the teachers. On top of that, just last Sunday, my Grandpa past away. It was definitely a shock and unexpected seeing as I had just seen him for Christmas. We live in different states, so I had to hop in a car for a 12 hour drive to be with my Grandma, not that I'm complaining, I just wish it was under better circumstances.

Even though I'm struggling I thank God that he is true to his word. He will NEVER give me more than I can handle. I might be going through a tough time, but we all go through it and it just strengthens and molds us into the person we are meant to be. All we can do is not let the temptation to fall apart succeed, and trust in God that we will overcome our struggles.

Here is a picture of me and my siblings 3 years ago with my Grandpa at his and my Grandma's 50th wedding anniversary party!

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 (NIV)

13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.

Matthew 5:4 (NIV)

Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
