Contemplating a Change


I am currently at a crossroads with regards to completing my degree. In fact, you might not call it a crossroads, but rather a dead end. If I don't get my act together and get my paperwork done, I'll be sitting idle for another semester and my goal is to graduate with this degree at the same time Austin graduates from high school in the spring of 2011. After all, I've been in school for what seems like FOREVER!


So just what am I contemplating? The university recently began offering another degree option and I'm seriously considering checking into what it would take for me to switch to the newer option. Of course, that would require the authorization of my advisor  and I'm sure there would be additional paperwork to boot. I've got to make this decision soon; either way I go will result in the same outcome. Decisions, decisions...

Letting Go

Francesca Battistelli is currently one of my favorite artists; her song, I'm Letting Go, carries a timely and appropriate message. The lyrics serve as a reminder that no matter lifes' circumstances God is in control and that He has a plan and a purpose for me (and for you too). You can listen to the song and view the lyrics here as well. May the message bless you; enjoy!



My heart beats, standing on the edge
But my feet have finally left the ledge
Like an acrobat
There’s no turning back

Chorus
I’m letting go
Of the life I planned for me
And my dreams
Losing control
Of my destiny
Feels like I’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe
So I’m letting go

This is a giant leap of faith
Trusting and trying to embrace
The fear of the unknown
Beyond my comfort zone

Chorus
I’m letting go
Of the life I planned for me
And my dreams
Losing control
Of my destiny
Feels like I’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe
So I’m letting go
Giving in to your gravity
Knowing You are holding me
I’m not afraid
Feels like I’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe
Feels like I’m falling and this is the life for me
