Blargh. - Live for God, Thrive in Nature, Smile with Love.
While sitting here thinking about why in the world my stomach hates me so much, I realized that Christmas is only a little over a week away. It's scary how time passes by so quickly. I feel as if I just started college and am hyperventalating as I enter my first class because I was so nervous. However, each day that passes by is God's gift to us. Each day allows us to get closer to Him and to thank Him for everything that He has given us. Yes, sometimes it may be hard because life doesn't always go the way you plan. Trust me, I know. I had an absolutely terrible night that most likely also ruined the rest of my week. I don't want to go into the details but this life is indeed hard. However, we need to keep our head up and trudge on through all of these trials that we are facing. As long as we do that, we will always have a smile on our face and God's light shining throughout us for the world to see.

Last Wednesday was finals for me at school, and also the end of my first semester in college. I can't even believe it. Is this really happening? Would I be allowed to climb on our rooftop and scream at the top of my lungs with happiness without getting arrested? I sure hope so because the urge is unbearable. I also aced my finals, which I have God to thank for. I'm so excited that I just can't hide it. Well, actually I can hide it but I'm continuously smiling on the inside. Except for my stomach at the moment which spontaneously decided to become incredibly nauseous. Booo!

Other than those little tid-bits, life has been alright. The sun seems to still be shining and there's an incredibly cold breeze. The roses also still seem to be blooming but most of the leaves have managed to fall of the trees. Also, if it wouldn't be much to ask to whoever may read this, keep the Gherasim family in your prayers. We really need any help we can get right now, especially my brother. Most of you don't know that I live in a difficult household, but God has always managed to help us through tough times. We're just getting pretty weak and need some help to stay strong through these hard times. I would appreciate it very much and would be very thankful. If any of you need praying for, I would gladly help also.

Time to get back to this wonderful yet very cold day. I'm shaking in my little reindeer socks! Hopefully it's warm and sunny where you all are. If it isn't, then know you aren't alone. Tis the season to be freezing.

With love,
