Enjoy the Good Things 

// October 6 // 

Today was a good day. Despite the fact that I had to work the majority of it. Fortunately, God has blessed me with fun people to work with. After work, however, I was really exhausted and just wanted to sleep. 

I was sitting in my dorm room with my suitemate and we started talking about how weird it is that when I pack everything up at the end of the semester, I’ll never be u packing it at this particular college again. It was very sad to think about, or bittersweet. 

It made me want to have fun this last semester. It made me want to enjoy friendships and just let laughter take over. And that’s exactly what we did tonight. 

My roommate came back from dinner with her parents and brought us yummy cookie sandwiches. I dipped mine in my caramel coffee that I made. It was truly a good thing.  I pondered how pleasant and sweet the moment was, just like the many moments of my college years. 

Simply said, I don’t want to be so stressed out about after college that I forget to enjoy college now. I want to enjoy the good things while they are here. I encourage you to do the same. 

Don’t get so caught up in the future that you let the good times slip away. If you wait too long, the cookie will go stale and you will not get to enjoy it. 

Romans 15.13 says “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
