A new season of life. Its closing the chapter on one part of life that I have become so familiar with. I know these friendships Ive made are for a season. Sometimes thats the hardest part. I feel going into this next chapter wont be any easier. Its hard to imagine not being around college students for the majority of my day or waking up in Lynchburg knowing what the weather is going to be like, the roads I am going to travel or the smells I will take in.
Im going to miss my house. My roommates and the freedom I have here. The stress of homework and studies will probably never be missed in my lifetime. However, the learning I will miss. I understand that what I may be doing is crazy and somewhat stupid to people. Not finishing college when I have 2 semesters left ( one internship and one of classes). I see the ridiculousness in my statements. However, if this is not where the Lord wants me I understand and see that. Going right out of HS I came to Liberty. These past four years I have learned more about myself than I could go on telling. I have spent almost 18 years of my life in school. That statement alone is a blessing. Education is a great gift and I dont take it for granted. One thing I do know is that I am not a quitter. I have come this far in my education…I am not going to give up. Maybe another path is the way to go…maybe a different school, maybe traveling, or working is what I need right now. I cant be certain, but I know my time in Lynchburg is done and God is still faithful in my life.
As much as it breaks my heart, I am going to miss my friends. Tonight I was given a surprise going away party. Never in my life have I felt more loved and appreciated by my friends. I never like having the attention on me but just to have the chance to say goodbye to people who have impacted my life is such a great oppourtunity. Its hard but I have the peace of Christ in me knowing that this is a “see you later” and not all “goodbyes”
