A Prayer For My Future Daughter

I cannot wait to meet you, my sunshine. Momma loves you.

A Prayer For My Future Daughter

Dear Lord,

I pray that when my daughter enters this would of Yours, she is filled with love. I pray that she appreciates everything she has and never once overlooks or complains about what she's been blessed with.

I pray that she is always genuine. I know that in this world it is hard to always be nice and sincere, but I pray that she lives through You. I pray that she always treats others how she would want to be treated, regardless of how they treat her.

I pray that she sees people for who they are on the inside. I pray that she doesn't let the monetary value of life fuel her friendships and views of others. Lord, I pray that she is known by others for her heart rather than the things she possesses.

Lord, I pray that she knows You. I pray that she lives through and for You. I pray that others see You in her and that she shares her faith openly with others.

I pray that she always gives thanks for who she has, what she has, and where she is within her walk of life. No matter how hard or challenging life gets, Lord, I pray that she finds something to be thankful for.

I pray that her life is filled with love, joy, peace, and happiness. May she have a smile that never stops shining and a laugh that I'd listen to for hours. May she know the true feeling of pure happiness and may that be because of You, Lord.

I pray that she always surrounds herself with those who walk with You, Lord. I pray that she never loses herself in hopes of keeping someone else within her life. I pray that she never puts others above herself to the point it harms her mentally and emotionally. May she learn that no matter what, her own emotions, feelings, and health are most important.

I pray that she knows she's beautiful. No matter how she looks or how she compares to society's standards, I pray that she knows she is beautiful exactly the way she is. Lord, I pray that she knows she was made in Your image, and that itself is more beautiful and perfect than it ever could be with her altering herself.

Lord, I pray that no matter what she's going through, she feels as if she can come to me. Whether she needs comfort, advice, or a shoulder to cry on, may she never forget that her mother is here for her through it all.

May she never forget that You are here through it all. I pray that she never forgets about You, or pushes You off to the side. May she always pursue You. Lord, I pray that she knows you fully.

I pray that my daughter lives a life of love, happiness, praise, and service to You, Lord.

In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
