Flip Turned Upside Down.

Now this is the story all about how 
My life got flipped, turned upside down 
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there 
I'll tell you how I became A TEACHER IN HOUSTON. 

Yes, you read that correctly. 

After a long and crazy search I have taken a job teaching 8th grade english. 
(My first thought after accepting the job was "Thank GOD I just bought some new wedges, I need to be taller than those 8th grade boys!)

If there is any question to whether the Lord works in our lives then talk to this girl. 
My prayers have been answered, the silent prayers I whispered in my sleep and the crazy prayers I yelled in frustration; they were all answered. 

My long distance relationship is ending in 3 weeks. 2 years of driving millions, or what felt like millions of miles all end in living less than a mile from each other. PRAISE THE LORD.
I can now buy return address labels. I have some A LOT of consistency in my life. PRASIE JESUS.

Hebrews 11: 1
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 

Annnnnnd you're welcome for getting "Fresh Prince" stuck in your head

Love yall!
