God’s Small Pleasures

Two weeks ago I started junior high school at Talkington SYWL. So far, it’s been pretty much your typical middle school experience. Kind of. Yes, there are passing periods, lockers, homework, and friends. However, there are absolutely no boys, which has been weird and fun all at once, and we wear uniforms. In spite of those small trifles, I’ve loved how grown up I’ve felt. I’ve never felt more free to be myself. But mostly, I have simply been so grateful to be at a school that will challenge me to do better and gives me many undeserved priveleges. So yes, these things are small pleasures, but we rejoice. God’s pleasures are so good.

Growing Up

Growing up. It is such a crazy biz, full of challenges, struggles, excitement, and fun. I learn this especially as I prepare to go to middle school in the coming months. There are many stressful things that I am experiencing, choosing a middle school and my electives, facing relationships that will change, new teachers, a new school… the list goes on and on. I am so thankful for the family that God has given me to help me work through this challenging time. I pray that I can learn to control my changing emotions, and that God would give me wisdom to know what is best for me. I pray that I would grow closer to instead of farther away from my family because they wil support me. Thank you God that you can these things. Until next time! đŸ™‚ EB
