The last time I wrote, I spoke of the unknown future that awaits me. It was only minutes later that my prayers began to be answered in very real ways.
First, let me travel back a few years.
My first semester at Biola University, I walked into my first undergraduate class and met Andrea, my first year seminar professor. I quickly learned that Andrea was an Indiana native, and I was thrilled. I would come into class, and we would chat Colts football for awhile, and talk about the weather back home. I only had Andrea for one semester, but I have gotten coffee with her occasionally since then to catch up.
Andrea is one of the most beautiful people I have ever met. She is a strong, single, independent, stunningly beautiful woman with a heart of gold, and she has become a great mentor through my walk at Biola.
I hadn’t seen Andrea since this semester started, and shortly after my last blog entry, I ran into her on campus. She asked me what was on my mind that morning, and I told her how stressed I was about finding a place to live for the summer and following year. She replied, “Lydia, you know, if you don’t find something, I have a spare bedroom that I would love to rent out to you.”
What a blessing.
I took her up on the offer for summer. I now have a place to stay while I research apartments for the most ideal location and price, not to mention I am thrilled for some more quality time with a woman that I respect deeply. I cannot wait to grow in conversation and faith. I am beyond thankful.
On another note, I started a new job last week in the same department in which I intern: University Communications and Marketing, specifically the public relations department, at Biola. I am really enjoying it.
I thrive on learning new things, and I am growing in many ways already. I am looking forward to the future, and the great people I am learning from. Again, another reason to be thankful.
