Dress Pants & Page Turners

I flipped through the pages, I couldn't wait to get to the end.
I wanted to hear so badly what he had to say.

Somehow I agreed with it all... very surprising.

I was actually ready to hear what Josh Harris had to say.

((author of 'I Kissed Dating Goodbye' & 'Boy Meets Girl'))
I kept saying I was going to stop at the end of each chapter,

but every time I got there,
just had to see how he started the next chapter.
fascinating. all so fascinating.
Chapter by chapter my heart began to change.

I guess God had prepared me for it without me even noticing it.

After finishing the book my focus changed.

I began to hope that God was also preparing my heart for

the next chapter of my life.

I called Mercy today to ask about the dress code.
Business Casual.
Monday- Thursday Dress pants only (& skirts etc.)

In my immature mind I often laugh at dress pants
being anywhere near causal...

but I guess I'm glad I have never worked a 'business' job.

((without the 'casual' that is))

After hanging up the phone, my heart began to change.

Yeah, so I love college and all.

And yes,
it is great to be surrounded
by hundreds of people your own age.

With activities planned just for your benefit, weekends spent

basking in our youth,
*living free* and
:::becoming::: who we have always wanted to be.

But I am a.l.r.e.a.d.y that person.
I have turned all the pages I can here.

The story is not over,

but this is the end of a chapter and
I cannot wait to read the beginning of the next!
