It's been a while, friends....

To any of you who actually still keep up with me via blog, I apologize for not blogging in FOREVER!

I feel like there isn't a whole lot to say with me utilizing Facebook and Twitter. But a quick update on my life:

I decided to go back to school to finish my undergrad, so I have been working on that since August 2009 and so far am keeping up my grades. I actually got on the Provost list at Palm Beach Atlantic University! :) I'm hoping to keep up my 3.92 GPA! As soon as I finish I plan on going straight into the Master's program for Psychology/Counseling.

Since I decided to go back to school I had to quit my full time job working at Partners International, non profit/ministry. It was sad to leave but I knew that I was doing the right thing. I now work at the Cheesecake Factory in downtown Palm Beach Gardens and really enjoy the flexibility it provides with my schedule and meeting new people all the time! Plus, I dont' have to be tied to a computer all day long! It's hard work, but it's a great job for right now.

I am dating an amazing guy who I met at my church, Brian. We were friends for a few months before we started dating. He actually went to my parents on his own accord to ask for their permission to pursue a relationship with me. He did this because he wanted them to know his intentions, considering what I have been through not too long ago. They think very highly of him and their only concern was making sure I still have enough time and space to pursue healing. He is amazing and has shown me what a truly godly man is and how wonderful it is to be in a relationship with someone who not only is becoming a best friend, but someone who admonishes you, sees your flaws and loves you inspite of them. Someone who you can put trust in and know that pain in relationships is inevitable, but will do all he can not to cause unecessary pain. A man who fears God and genuinely loves others. I could go on and on, but I will just say things are going very well with him...we are taking things slowly and trying to help each other keep God first and foremost.

My family is doing well. All my brothers are busy and wonderful. It's been such a pleasure to live back home again these last few years now and be a part of their lives again. I definitely feel blessed to have them all so close and be close with them too. They are a wonderful blessing to my life, not to mention my oldest brother gave us our nephew, Tristan who is amazing and so cute!!

I do have a roomate, Aimee who has walked a similiar path as me recently and has been an amazing friend and confidant. She is an amazing, godly woman who loves Jesus with all her heart and never fails to give me sound advice and speak the hard truth in love. She has been such a blessing!

Well, that's all I got for now. It's late and I have to work a double tomorrow. I'm hoping to blog more soon. :) Stop by again!

Love you all, my Texas friends-I miss you and love you!
Jess
