For those that don’t know, I’m VERY excited for my summer. It’s been a bit of a rough semester and while I’m thankful for everything I’ve learned and the strong friendships I’ve developed, I wasn’t sad to take my last final yesterday. The fact that my summer has officially started hasn’t quite set in yet, but I think some fun in the sun will change that soon enough!
I’m starting my summer adventures with a 2-week trip to Destin, FL with Cru, my campus ministry. I’m headed to Greek Summit, a Cru summer mission/leadership conference for college students that are part of the Greek system (in a fraternity or sorority). While I don’t really know what to expect, I can’t wait to see what God has in store for the next few weeks.
Whatever the next few weeks and months may hold, I’m learning to trust Him with my plans. I can only hope that my adventures are half as exciting and enlightening as Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy’s in the Chronicles of Narnia. (Re-reading the series is at the top of my summer reading list… and I may or may not have been 3 chapters in to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe before my plane even took off at 5:30am this morning.)
I hope this trip can be the “wardrobe” to my summer, leading me to something new and exciting! I will do my best to keep posting updates to my blog throughout my trip.
I’m also praying for the adventures of my friends and roommates who will be all over the world in the next few weeks! (Places like Croatia, Brazil, Mexico, and Italy.)
(And for those of you wondering, when I get back from Florida, I will be moving to Bloomington and interning with Illinois Farm Bureau for the rest of the summer.)
