My first "Miscellany Monday" :)

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1. I finally made all of my grocery totes that I've been meaning to make for a month, I can't wait to use them for our weekly grocery trip once the roomie gets home from NYC!

2. Here's a picture of them.....
This is just 4, there are 8 total: 4 large and 4 medium

3. Fall break went by very quickly, I was just not ready for classes to begin this morning. I did have a WONDERFUL time at home with my mom though!

4. I opened my fall friendship swap package today from Leigh, it was lovely! [I will post more with pictures later] I also was finally able to send hers out as well and I can't wait until she gets it :D

5. I had a twinge of a headache all day that finally exploded into a migrane this afternoon... sadness! I had to miss Elevate [the youth group that I work with] but thankfully it is much better now.

6. I am exhausted. Must. Get. Sleep....

Ain't it good... be a daughter of the King!!
Tonight I quit my studying a little bit early so that I could spend more time reading my bible and the words I read totally calmed my heart. I don't have to worry or fear what may come. He says that as long as I'm listening to Him that I can have security, ease and freedom from dread.
I was just reading my bible by candle light (which I have to say is extra amazing) and I came across this:

"But whoever listens to me will dwell secure and will be at ease, without dread of disaster." -Proverbs 1:33

It's pretty funny how easily we can forget these foundational things but tonight I was reminded that what God wants from me is my attention and my heart, not my constant doings. Lately I have felt like I am running around just trying to catch up, with everything spinning out of control around me. Some days I literally get dizzy just looking at my schedule! This verse caused me to literally exhale and lean into Him, release my anxieties, and embrace the freedom he has handed me.
