These past few weeks have been a whirlwind--Thanksgiving, essays, research papers, tests, church choir practices, and tying up the last of the semester's loose ends have consumed my life! Though my heart is heavy as I prepare to take the next step in my life, my time in Waco and at Baylor has been richly blessed as I have grown, matured, and begun to see just a little of the Lord's plan for my life revealed.

Though I know full well the Lord has a pure and perfect plan, that doesn't mean I've accepted this change gracefully. :) As I was driving home for Thanksgiving, I definitely took a little time to express to the Lord my not-so-happy attitude in preparing to move from this place I have grown to love. However, as I drove up Highway 6, I was struck by the beautiful, changing trees--evidence of the fall season making its way in.

I was quickly reminded of the beautiful words found in Ecclesiastes:
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

The seasons these trees endure is quite like the seasons of life. Though I have no idea where I will be in the next few months, I do know it is time for this season of my life to come to an end. I am confident the Lord is using this time to prune me and help me grow--even if that means my life must change--and soon enough, I know I will be able to see the evidence of this as I continue to strive towards becoming the woman God wants me to be.

On another note...
Thanksgiving was a joyous time in the Wright household consisting of shopping extravanganzas, coffee shop concerts, a home makeover, some good down time, and of course--the infamous Thanksmas (well, Mom prefers Christgiving). I've included a few pictures from the week for your viewing pleasure including, but not limited to, our shopping trip to C-City documented by finding dad's cattle brand on a wall, Syd and A's mayonnaise hair-treatment, mom and jo's tile cleaning attempt, the new guest room, the coffee shop concert featuring Syd, and some. :)

Back in Waco, I got to meet SANTA! :) Here's a pic of me and my small group girl, Erin. Erin has been an incredible blessing to my life over the past few years. I met her at Kamp Kanakuk while I was a counselor the past few summers and have had the privilege of getting to hang out with her ever since through the K-Life ministry in Waco. She's a freshman at Waco High.

I pray each of you is experiencing a blessed holiday season filled with lots of love, laughter, family, and a constant attitude of gratitude for the sacrifice our Heavenly Father made on our behalf!

Blessings on each of you and your families!
