Life lately has been a mixture of the joy of preparing for marriage and the stress of planning a future. Everyday is one day closer to being married and starting a new life. The prospect of newness is exciting, but also scary and unsure. As of a week ago, Brad and I were planning to move to Kansas City in just one short month without jobs or a plan for how to start our new life. Much time has been spent in prayer as we’ve been trusting the Lord to guide us to the next step. Faithfully, a door has been opened and our plans have changed. I will be continuing my education at Missouri State University in Springfield to pursue my master’s in biology. I was blessed to be accepted with a teaching assistantship that will cover the cost of tuition and fees, plus provide a stipend. Brad has begun searching for a job in the area. We trust that the Lord will continue to provide for us as we start our adventure in a new city.
Until then, I am finishing up my last month of school. Graduation is so close, yet there is still much to be done in these five weeks. This weekend was the last “relaxing” weekend of the semester. We got to enjoy it by studying, going to the lake to collect water samples (for my independent water-testing study), and shopping.
My days spent studying on my twin bed in my college apartment are coming to a close. It feels bittersweet, but mostly sweet. I’m really exciting to start looking for places to live in Springfield!
A weekend just isn’t complete without ice cream.
We make collecting water samples fun.
After having an iPhone for a couple of weeks, I’ve decided I most definitely prefer a traditional game of scrabble.
I always feel bad when I try on a million things and walk out of the store without buying anything.
