so it’s a new year. 2006! i know alphas everywhere are excited. i can’t believe it’s 2006 already. 2005 was such a good year, full of so many blessings and surprises. i thank God that i made it through another year, and i’m so excited about all of the things in store for this year.

in a few days, i’ll officially be “miss davis”. yeah, i’m about to step into the classroom as a teacher, teaching economics to high school juniors. that’s so weird, because i definitely remember my junior year of high school. i’m also not too certain about economics, but i figure that God has given me all i need to do what i have to do. so i should be fine.

something else that’s weird is that i LOVE college football. being at uga for a SEMESTER has transformed me. don’t get me wrong, i’m a TARHEEL and i will ALWAYS bleed carolina blue. but there really is something about SEC football. being at the ga center and decorating for games, along with seeing all the fans and alumni…and who could forget uga vi! my first uga game was the sugar bowl (how many people can say that?), and although we lost, it was such an incredible experience. usually i’m excited about the end of college football, but now i’m slightly saddened. it’s all good though…basketball can hold me over till the summer, and then i can break from sports to be good and ready for football all over again.

i started 2006 on the plane…coming back from phoenix, and the message that i got from God is that he’s still faithful to us (or me). as 2006 came in, the song that started playing on my ipod (which was on shuffle) was “great is thy faithfulness”. i was almost moved to tears, just at how God is ALWAYS at work, and consistently reminding us that he is there and faithful to us. i had been worried about how i was going to make it through this semester, but now i’m encouraged. thanks God!

that’s all for now…be encouraged!

“great is thy faithfulness. morning by morning, new mercies i see. all i have needed, thy hand hath provided. great is thy faithfulness, Lord unto me. “

“if it had not been for the Lord on my side, tell me where would i be…”
