First 2 weeks

Well, the first 2 weeks of school has passed.  Slowly but surely I will get through this first year of school...and eventually high school.

These 2 weeks have been like a roller coaster...but not as fun.  I have missed my friends more than ever these past couple of days.  I have missed having someone to talk to.  I have missed having someone to sit with at lunch..and the conversation not being awkward.  I have missed coming into school and knowing that I will be bombarded with hugs and "hi"s.  I have missed the familiarity of the little town of Franklin I miss so much.  I miss everything.  I think about people who say that they have lived in Franklin their whole life...and then I think about me who of all people God made us leave.  Why?  Everyday I ask this question.  Why?  If only this life was easy.   If only God told us how everything would turn out and why He does stuff like this.  It's times like these when I wish I could just fast-forward time and see why He moved us here and what His plan is for me.

I hate not having someone to sit in class with and talk to.  I hate wondering who I will sit in class with.  I hate it when I get all nervous before lunch because every time at lunch it unfolds differently.

This weekend I get to go home to the little town of Franklin I miss so much.  I get to see all my friends that I miss so dearly.  I get to have that piece of familiarity back.  I wish I could be staying for more than 2 days...but alas, no.  I hope this week goes by really, really fast...but at the rate we are moving at now, Friday will never come.

These are only a few of the things that are on my mind that I somehow needed to get out.

On another note....yesterday I GOT BAPTIZED!  It was the best feeling ever.  I was literally on Cloud 9 afterwards.  I felt like a completely new person.  I have always wanted to get baptized, and I've always wanted to be baptized in a large body of water (lake, river, creek, ocean, etc.) and yesterday I got baptized in the Atlantic Ocean....I don't know how it could've gotten any better.

Prayers would be much appreciated with this whole new school thing and about life in general.

Love,
Charlie
