there aren't words to explain this

Man alive, school has gone by so quickly! It's Wednesday of week 5 already! Classes are crazy this semester, I don't think I knew what I was really getting into when I decided to take 6 classes this time. In the past, I've prided myself on skimming or barely reading "assigned" books, and still doing very well in classes. School really just comes easily to me- something I've taken for granted I guess. But now, now I find myself reading furiously to stay on top of all this craziness. Needless to say, I am ridiculously excited about the upcoming three day weekend.

Despite all that I am facing in my classes, the Lord is teaching me so much right now. I was hit hard last week with more walking pneumonia and got a chance to see things differently. He has really encouraged me this week with the community of others and overwhelmed me with the privilege of bringing others' needs to him. Praise God for bringing me to this spot, in showing me what a joy it is to learn love in this way. I don't know if that makes complete sense to anyone. Regardless, I am overwhelmed with the opportunity to be burdened for others and seeing life in a different way. I feel like one of those bubbly people who can't find anything to frown about these days, and I've been encouraged by such a great week that keeps getting better.
