Once again, my Saturday was awesome.
I went to Joplin to watch the Rhema basketball teams play in the last games of a tournament.
Boys came in 5th place and girls came in 3rd place.
The scenery is beautiful between Tulsa and Joplin. This is my first time living in the Midwest, so everything about this place is part of the adventure.
My friend Holly and I rode together to the tournament and it was fun to go on a mini road trip.
We ate lunch at a local barbecue place, which was my first time eating barbecue since moving. How did I go that long without it?!?
This past week’s been a lot of fun because it’s the first time in a while that I’ve had something going on everyday.
I’m just taking things one day at a time and soaking up all of these experiences.
If I want to do something, I give it a shot. What can it hurt?
If I want to get to know someone, I stick out my hand and introduce myself. What can it hurt?
Sure, I’m still my awkward, goofy, and cheesy self but I’m starting to embrace it more and more.
Some days are harder than others. Some days I miss home.
For the most part, though, I’m simply grateful to be in Tulsa. Being a student at Rhema, seeing faith in action is changing me.
And I am happy about this change.
