The Glory of it All

This morning three of my beautiful cousins came through town and I got to hang out with them, my sister and her son, and my brother, sister-in-law and their son. We only had about an hour together, but I just love how family can so easily come together. It was a little difficult to catch up on all the details of our lives, but I heard a bit about their lives. One thing that really struck me was how easy it was to start asking, "So, what's next? What are you going to do with your degree?" I mean, there's nothing wrong with this question, but the simple fact of the matter is that it's so hard to predict what the next few years will bring. And even beyond that especially. I told one of my cousins that I wish people would ask more about my current life and what's on my heart now. Because all we have is right now. And right now, I have a lot of passion for life and I'm happy where I'm at! And dear friends, I would ask you - how is your life? What are you passionate about right now? I would absolutely love to hear your responses. This blog doesn't have to be a one-way street :)
If you're not sure that you have a passion right now, that's okay. But I would love to encourage you with these words from David Crowder's song "The Glory of it All" :

Oh the Glory of it all is:
he came here
For the rescue of us all
that we may live
for the glory of it all
for the glory of it all

All is lost
find him there, find him there
After night
Dawn is there, Dawn is there

After all falls apart
he repairs he repairs

If you take anything away from the lyrics of this song, please take away that all is lost and broken without Jesus Christ. But he came HERE, to earth! And he repaired our brokenness so that we may have a right relationship with him. And now we are to live for his glory. Live for his glory!!! Be encouraged and be blessed.

We need at least 1 doctor in the family. None of us were smart enough to actually do med school, but i think you can. DO IT.
