Where am I?

I've been sitting in Starbucks for almost 3 hours working on homework, when a thought just hit me:  All those years ago, I imagined what my life would be like when I was a senior in college.  It's really nothing like I imagined.  I remember sitting in small group as a high school junior raving over what we would do to be in college and how much better our lives would be.  Our small group leader Lizzy gave us a little nugget of advice: enjoy where we are because we won't be there ever again.  She also taught us a lot about patience.  As I sit here working on hours upon hours of my never ending to-do list of college assignments, I've come to realize where I thought I would be and where I really am.

I thought my company would be in more retail stores, but today I am working on a new business plan.
I thought I would be manufacturing bath products for the rest of my life, but today I am contemplating doing an internship with a new company.
I thought I would be engaged, but today I'm as single as ever.
I thought I would still be best friends with everyone from high school, but today I only keep in touch with one or two.
I thought I would be independent, but today I'm still as dependent - just in different ways.
I thought I would have freedom, but today I have found a different freedom than I was seeking.
I thought I would have security, but today I'm not even sure where I will be next week.
I thought I would have my life together, but today I'm still waiting to figure that out.

I'm currently backpacking through the wild journey called life.  No matter what I plan for, there are always going to be bumps in the road (#cliche).  The good news is that I know that what I want is not always the Lord's plan, and the Lord's plan is SO MUCH better than anything I could plan or hope for.

Just some thoughts today as I sit in a Starbucks.

Harvest Square Market

Here are some pictures from this past weekend at the Harvest Square Festival!!

I've been super busy the past couple of weeks which is why I haven't posted any updates on my blog!  Taking five senior level classes in school as well as my capstone class is quite a lot to handle.   However, the show went really well over the past weekend!  The Harvest Square Festival is always my most favorite show to do all year.  It was a little rainy in the morning, but the day just kept getting more and more beautiful.

Per your request, we are SO excited to announce we finally have another loofah soap scent!  And it's PEPPERMINT!!

Ger your bar here:

I've also redone the homepage on Revive's website!  Check that out after you've gotten your peppermint loofah soap and let me know how you think it looks :)

Have a reviving day!

Forgiveness vs. Trust, or Are They the Same?

Some thoughts I had after class today.  Do you think that trust is a sign you have forgiven someone and that trust and forgiveness are one in the same?  Or do you think you can forgive someone without trusting them?  I want to know what you think about this!  Leave a comment below with your opinion.
