For the first part of the summer I will be in Montgomery, AL taking some photography classes and enjoying the city. Leaving the place I have grown up my whole life & coming back years later to live for a period has completely changed my perspective on the city I was oh-so-eager to leave from. I've realized it has a lot to do on how I choose to percieve it. Yes, there has been many rennovations and the face of Montgomery is changing a lot, but more importantly there is life there- people to meet, opportunities to be had, and things to experience.

"He led them by a straight way till they reached a city to dwell in. Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of men! For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things." Psalm 107:7-9

My good friend, Rachel [http://www.rabeers.blogspot.com/], will be there as well, and we are expectant of what the Lord will do in this city and the people during our time there. It is very evident that the Lord is moving, and stirring things up in Montgomery.

Can't wait to enjoy it and be a part.

new season.

I am really excited about the season that is coming up in my life. This is the first time since I was a junior in highschool that I have not taken summer classes or worked in a hospital or clinic (5 years, wow). And after this semester, that is perfectly fine with me. I need a break from all things medical.

I am excited about the newness, blank slate. I am actually instead working part time for a photographer, and doing some small jobs & just traveling to see friends until I leave for Honduras for the month of July. Bottom line, for May & June--I pretty much just don't have any plans. To me this is interesting, because I'm a planner. This is an openness I've never experienced. I can read to read, and not to take a test. I can go somewhere on the weekend & not have to be back for class, to study, or work. Whew. This is going to be good. Breath of fresh air.
I know the Lord has some incredible things in store for the summer, and I can't wait.
