No More "Freshie"

I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry…
And he hath put a new song in my mouth,
even praise unto our God:
many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
Blessed is the man that maketh the LORD his trust…
Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done,
and thy thoughts which are to us-ward:
they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of
them, they are more than can be numbered.
.
Psalm 40:1, 3-5
.
Congratulate me, people. I cannot BELIEVE it, you probably can't BELIEVE it... but it's true as you live.
.
I'm NOT A FRESHMAN ANY MORE!!
.
You hear it. I am now officially a sophomore... errrr... I will be when they "officially" declare me a sophomore. But still. My last final exam of the spring semester was this afternoon (yes, exams on a Saturday wasn't the best thing ever...)!
.
But I did it!! No, God did it.
.
He brought me through the difficult days.
.
He heard my whispered, hurried, heartfelt, shouted, breathed, crying prayers. Through the blood, sweat, and tears... the stress and highlights and joy and coffee (ha!). The late nights at the piano and heavy days of books. New friends, new discoveries. My first time in a genuine classroom/homework setting... us homeschoolers, haha! Early mornings, DORM LIFE... hehe!! He brought me through.

To say it was easy would be a lie, but to say it was awful would be a HUGE lie. It was one the best six months of my LIFE. God taught me SO much about Himself. He was the only One who brought me through.
.
I'm so grateful.
.
And SO excited! Summer. Here I come.
.
And it's almost midnight.... soooooo I'd better go to sleep so I don't have to prop my eyes open in church tomorrow and down three cups of coffee at breakfast. On Wednesday I'll be heading home to the land of sunshine and summer jobs and sleeeeeeeep.

But if you got nothing else out of this rambling, excited post, I want you to know one thing. It was ALL God.
.
Much love!
Hannah
