Grace

Posted by Sarah

pm- 3-4 miles in home neighborhood- PENDING

I'm still on vacation. This is the first day that I've gotten to sleep in and then get up and do whatever I want. It feels weird not getting up and going to the gym at the crack of dawn. I should be a good girl and get up and go anyway, but this is my only week to sleep in. Is that bad of me not to get up and go early? I think I will go running tonight after it cools down a bit but before it gets dark. Unlike my friend Sarah, I am scared of running in the dark! Not only that, but I'm clumsy and would likely trip over unseen sticks, rocks, and potholes.

So far today I have completed my homework. It was my last accounting assignment! Hallelujah! Now I have to take 2 quizzes, an exam, and my final. I hope to devote today to the two quizzes and the exam and then I can go into the college tomorrow and take my final. I'm so excited because then I will be D-O-N-E. This class was a lot of work for 8 weeks. I should have an A. I hope I finish with an A. I'll be pretty disappointed in myself if I don't get that grade.

Well, as with every weekend lately, I consumed way too much junk. This vacation came at a perfect time for me, I can purge my house of all crap and junk, guzzle the water, and get my life back on track. Ry and I both are feeling the nastiness in our pores. I don't have the excuse of stress dictating my diet this week and that's what I need to get us back around.

I have to say today that I am thankful for so many things. God is so good to me. Why do I deserve such grace? It's an astounding question. I thank the Lord for forgiving all my stupid mistakes, for my insecurities, and my failings...there are so many! I wish that we humans could be so forgiving. I also thank Him for my wonderful Ry, my super in-laws, and all my dear friends. Can a girl get any more blessed??

TODAY I LOVE: Pandora online radio and my sense of sight and sound

Hey Sarah! I can't believe you're almost done with your accounting class. :-) I'm anxiously awaiting the post that declares you have finished it. Yea!

Thanks for the awesome post on my blog. It was very uplifting. I'm a nervous wreck about the c25K. I talked to my friend Amy and she's going to do it with me. Do you have any suggestions about inserts? Send some suggestions my way if you have time. I could really use your help. :-)

Have a FANTASTIC vacation. You deserve it!
