Blessed Beyond Belief!

Over the past few weeks there have been more and more exciting things happening in my life!

For starters, I was awarded a very generous scholarship from the school. I applied for it in January and I never really thought I had a chance. It's a scholarship for married students and I had to have to have 2 staff recommendations and one personal recommendation, along with a GPA of 3.0 or higher. I also had to write an essay. So anyways, I was chosen for this award and the amount is triple what I thought it was. I'm just blown away at how God has provided for my school in some miraculous ways! I'm also invited to an awards dinner where they will present me with the scholarship in front of everyone. I could totally do without that but hey, I'll take it!

This is a huge deal to me. I can remember being the one and only senior in my graduating class of like 33 who didn't receive an award. I know that was almost 9 years ago but I still think back on that day and remember how stupid I felt. God has brought me so far and equipped me with the knowledge to become a good student. Talk about a transformation!

John also bought me an amazing new van yesterday! After driving clunkers for the past 4 years or so, we finally have a really nice vehicle that's reliable and stylish. I feel so blessed and I never think I'll get sick of driving this:-) It's a Nissan Quest and it's gorgeous, inside and out.

I am so thankful for all of the blessings in my life. I could sit here all day listing them all day and I thank God for all of it!
