Warm Weather & Goodbye Thoughts

I'm ready for it to actually feel like Spring and to see sites like this. I want to see the Dogwoods blooming and the sun shining. It looks like it should finally warm up this week. Let's hope it's actually true. I think I speak for most of Louisville when I say I'm tired of wintry weather. I'm not a fan of winter. Cold weather is just not my thing. I am from Mississippi after all.

On a different, but kind of similar, note, it's finally spring break for me...or Spring Reading Days as the seminary calls it. It's hard to believe that it's my last spring break. Knowing that I'll graduate in May is bittersweet. I'm excited about finishing school, but at the same time, I'm used to being in school. I've been in school pretty much my whole life. 

Goodbyes are hard for me. I've seen how God has been faithful in the past when I've made big transitions like moving to Louisville, but I'm still nervous and sad to leave my wonderful community here. You'll probably get tired of hearing me talk about how hard leaving will be, but that's a huge thing on my mind right now, and it helps a little to write about it. I'll talk a little more in one of my next posts about my upcoming move to S. Asia, and how God has lead me there. While I hate that saying goodbye to Louisville will be so hard, I am blessed that my time here has made it hard to say goodbye.

  1. I totally feel you on this! I need spring STAT, but I'm sad about the pending goodbyes. Hope you're enjoying your reading days!

  2. Thanks! My break is going to be somewhat busy, but I'm going camping at Red River Gorge next weekend and disconnecting from the world, which will be much needed. I've never been to Red River Gorge, and I haven't been camping in forever, so I'm excited.
