Another month has come and gone already. So much has happened this month too!
I finished that 5k I mentioned in the last entry. Almost dead last, but I did finish it. I wasn’t feeling well that morning and it was freezing, but I pushed through and got my first walk of 2018 on the books. Next one is in June, so I’m already training again for that. I signed up for a 3 race challenge, which would earn me an extra medal and a jacket. Unfortunately I’m not going to make it to the 3rd race though 😦 I’m going on a mission trip instead! The mission trip in the long run means more, but I am a little bummed about missing the end of the challenge. Any one want to race for me? 😉
Less than 3 weeks until graduation! Let me tell you, this last class has been a struggle! The work isn’t hard and there’s not a ton of it, it’s just that most of the work is weighty. Just preparing me for the Masters program, right?!?
Which, by the way, I was officially accepted into!! Received my acceptance letter last Monday! So I’ve booked my flights and car for the 1-week residency requirement in July in Denver, and have arrangements to stay with my aunt. So I get to see her and maybe some other family as a bonus! It’s ironic I guess. I am so ready to be finished with school for my undergrad but I’m so ready to start the Grad program. I am totally looking forward to have 2 months off this summer though!!
On a heavier note, a friend of mine passed away a little over a week ago 😦 He was only 36! Apparent cardiac arrest although he was seemingly in good health beforehand. His wife of 10 years is expecting their 3rd son in October. So sad, so tragic! But this we know… he is with Jesus in eternity now and we will see him again. We also still believe God is good and He is in control and He will take care of the family. My friend leaves an amazing legacy of faith and fun for his boys along with the rest of his family and friends. He will be sorely missed. If you are so inclined, there’s a Go Fund Me page set up for the family: https://www.gofundme.com/jon-renaud-memorial-fund
Do you have the peace that you know where you’ll be in eternity? Jesus really did what the Bible says He did: He was God in the flesh, he lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins, then rose from the grave, ascended to Heaven and sent His Holy Spirit to live with us. The Holy Spirit is speaking to you now, do you know His voice? Accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, trust Him with your heart, He’ll help you with the rest. If you have questions, let me know. I’d love to talk with you more about the loving, living God I serve and call my Friend.
God bless and Happy Spring!
