Feeling a little nostalgic...

I just used the word nostalgic. Ok, moving on. I've been thinking a lot lately and reflecting over what all has happened in college, what God has taught me, you know, all that jazz. I tend to dwell more on camp and just college in general, so here a few thoughts about them. And for those of you rolling your eyes because I mentioned camp and you've heard me talk about it over and over and over, its not what you think, so keep reading. :)

I keep up with the Centri-Kid blog just so I can feel like I still have a small part in camp world. I watched some videos that were posted on the blog, and it made me think of all the memories I made 2 summers ago when I worked. That was a great summer. And as much as I'd like to have even a small part of it this summer as an adult sponser or special teams, it's just not gonna happen. I know that God used camp to teach me and help me grow, and that's exactly what happened. I got depressed last summer when I had to back out of working for a second summer to take classes instead, but God knew what He was doing...He always does. That's why I'm not getting down about not working this summer when I hear people talk about camp. Camp served it's purpose in my life, and I'm just grateful God gave me the opportunity.

And then earlier tonight, someone asked me how I've liked my 4 years at WKU. The only thing I could tell him was that they have been awesome. Honestly, how else can you describe a time where you've experienced so much growth? I've grown so much spiritually, relationally, and in maturity. I've been blessed with so many different opportunities that have prepared me for different aspects of life. I've been blessed with close friends. I've been blessed to be a part of two great communities at BCM and Living Hope. I've been blessed with great mentors. God is so much more real to me than He was when I was 18. He's revealed so much of Himself to me. God is so good...that's why my last 4 years at WKU have been awesome.

Now, I wonder what does God have in store for me next?? :) (Kind of random, but hope you enjoyed.)
