From Wailing to Dancing

Sometimes I get these swelling feelings of love and appreciation that I can't suppress, and I have decided to share some of those joyous thoughts with you. I am back in Bowling Green to begin my junior year of college (which is mind-blowing), and my heart is full. I have some of the greatest friends & family, and I have never felt more loved or wanted to love people so much in my life- honest. And today, I realized even more how far God has brought me and taught me since those lonely days of middle school- those days were full of self-pity and loneliness, but now my days are full of joy and love. One of my favorite verses comes from Psalm 30:11-12, and it perfectly embodies how my Heavenly Father has changed my outlook on life:
"You turned my wailing into dancing; You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and NOT be silent. O Lord, my God, I will give you thanks forever!"
I am so thankful for the people God specifically places in my life to show me how much He loves me. Funny how God works, right? And to close, some shots of the last few wonderful weeks of my life that have truly filled my cup with joy:

CK5 fills my heart with joy. Period.
