Ok, so I only have four major things to do yet for the school year, but they are going to get done by today and tomorrow. This is exciting, because at the beginning of the semester I had 20 major assignments! Thanks to everyone who has encouraged me along the way, especially mom, who wasn't afraid to tell me to step it up! Thanks so much! And God has been seeing me through, even when I thought it was an unreachable task. I got this in an e-mail from Nana the other day, and I wanted to share it with you. It shows how even in our negative thoughts, God is positive, and he holds us up.
