Cornfield sunsets & lots of joy

These are not my pictures but I wanted to share the beautiful sight I saw last night but of course I didn't have my camera with me! Outside of my little Champaign-Urbana city you hit country and cornfields. It is actually really beautiful out there. I unexpectedly got to see the sunset out in the country last night and I am so glad I did. It looked just like these pictures! Everyone that told me the midwest has the most beautiful sunsets...they were certainly almost right. They have BEAUTIFUL sunsets, but I cannot discount the gorgeous sunsets of NC at the mountains and the beach.

I also had a great time at the Grad bible study I am going to now. I am starting to make friends with the people there and it is really nice to have a group people around my age that love God and are seeking to live more faithfully for him. I thank you for all the prayers on this because it has been hard but I am finally feeling that this is slowly taking care of itself.

Work is going great too! Compared to a week or 2 ago my life is feeling a lot better all around. I do not have anything really insightful for you right now but maybe after tonight at Chapel. I will be gone to Chicago this weekend to visit my fellow US-2 Meg! I can't wait and I think it will be a great time for us to enjoy each others company, swap stories, and enjoy the city of Chicago (which I have never been too!). After leaving NYC, and having lived in Philly last summer, I am kinda missing the big city life slightly so I think it will be a good time! I miss you all! I officially will be in NC, December 22 - January 6th, so let's make plans!!!

Would you quit being so happy already? Seems like all your posts are just good news here and good news there. I'm tired of it.

I loved the photos. You will definitely have to take your own sunset photos soon. It would be neat if all the US-2s could take sunset photos from each of their sites. I'm sure they would all be uniquely beautiful. Just think...I wonder what Fawn's sunsets look like! (We could add that to our list of projects to do as a group, including our book where we each write a chapter! Maybe we could include the sunset pics in the book.)

I am glad you are making friends! Do you ever think to yourself, "How 'lifelong' can these friends really be, if I'm only here for two years?" Unless we chose to stay at our sites longer than two years....
