a first

So, a blog. I have been wanting to do this for a while. Basically because people I think are cool have blogs. And it happened to work out that a class I am taking is requiring me to try a new technology. So, bam.

I am feeling tired this week. Surprise. I feel like in one way or another I am always tired. This weekend I was in Virginia Beach for a Young Life weekend. We heard from a speaker that was awesome and got to lay on the beach which was also awesome. But I was struck with lots of things in my life. Things I want to be about and things I do not want to be about. So how do I make it happen? One has been prayer. I am buying into more prayer.

I am realizing more that I just want to spend time with people I love. This weekend I loved sharing meals with people. I loved walking on the beach with Bradley. I loved talking with Jenn. I loved picking my sister up from school for dinner. I loved the multiple car rides with my team. I hate not having time for things like these. I hate saying, nope sorry I'm too busy to have lunch with you, or answer your call, or stop and talk because I have things to do. I hate that. I can't wait for heaven because I finally won't be too busy. This year, my last year, I don't want to be in a hurry. I don't want to be rushed. Jesus always had time.

Next year will come on its own. And I'm sure it'll be great. But for now, no hurry. No rush.


  1. Atta girl, Marge! SO impressed. Just added this to my favorites so that I can be an avid reader. Love you :)

  2. "I can't wait for heaven because I finally won't be too busy."
    that makes me giddy.

  3. This just made me change my plans :D See I was going to tell a friend I couldn't meet up with for dinner because I need to get caught up on so much reading and homework but....Now I'm definitely going to set aside some time for dinner tonight! Thanks!
