Philippians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Last night, I laid in my bed and stared at the ceiling. I couldn’t sleep. This past weekend we took my big sis to college. She is going to do great. She is studying to be a mechanical engineer which isn’t going to be the easiest thing in the world. She is on the reserve team for their NCAA soccer team. I have no doubt that she will do awesome.
It’s still sad to see her go, though. I cried multiple times. We shared a room, and now it’s just mine. We shared responsibility, and now it’s just mine. I am the big sister now.
Throughout the weekend, I never made the time to sit and talk to God for longer than three minutes. Last night I did. She was going through some stress. I didn’t want her to stress out, she would be fine. I wanted her to know that there would be no problem. I know it sounds stupid, but I ended up stressing out because I didn’t want her to stress.
This verse couldn’t be any clearer. Don’t be anxious. God really does have it all under control.


  1. i'd miss my sisters so so much.
    that verse... is so powerful and wonderful. thanks for reminding me of it, too.

    1. It was one of those verses that I knew, but to see that again it was just like WOW, I can't add anything to that.

I Missed the Only Year of My Life When I Could Sing, "I am sixteen going on seventeen."

Sound of Music has been my favorite movie since I was in kindergarten. My second favorite scenes was the invasion of the Nazi's. Don't ask why? I guess it was foreshadowing to my future history major. My favorite scene is when Liesl sings, "I am sixteen going on seventeen." 
     For years, I waited until I turned sixteen so I could sing that song. I didn't care that the two characters were falling in love. I just wanted to sing the lines, "I am sixteen," with accuracy. 
     Well, today I am seventeen. In the past year, I never got the chance to watch Sound of Music and sing along. This kind of made me sad . . . 
     Until I think back to all the times my sister, MK, sang the songs from The Sound of Music with beauty and grace. She fell in love with the movie just like had, and she doesn't care that she's not sixteen. She just loves music and singing. Listening to her was better than fulfilling a childhood dream.
