Rain, can stay.

I know, right? Never thought I'd say that...
I have a long standing hate-hate relationship with stormy weather, so it makes sense that I'd be drowning in self-sadness since I haven't seen then sun or had flat hair since...ohhh about Sunday. I've really been enjoying it though. It's comforting.
Me and Jesus have been having some nice morning talks here lately...reconnecting I guess.
So grateful for the gift of grace.

This second year of grad school is tough. Really, really tough.
I'm so tired of school...I'm tired of the books and the lack of control and free time. Trying to manage my schedule has become the bane of my existence, and I'm averaging a good cry around two or three times a week these days. It's been a real struggle to stay out of that "just get it done" mind set. I don't want to spend everyday just waiting for the weekend...I wanna live those moments, look for the bright spots and sing praise. It's just hard.

The rain has been nice though. It's given me space to be quiet, feel small and reflect.
I'll be sad to see it go.
