I am now attending Bible Study for young adults at my church. I felt my connection with God and my knowledge about the bible was weak so I wanted to learn more about my faith and God. I have only been twice so far but I really like it. It's hard to go consistently each week when you have a new job that takes priority but I go when I have the free time! It's a small group but smaller groups is always better! The first time I went we discussed some verses in Acts and I felt a little lost because I dont know a whole lot about the stories of the bible but it was interesting!
This past tuesday we talked about time and how valuable it is. We listened to the song by Pink Floyd called "Time" and the lyrics really describe the reality of the time we have and use on Earth. Time goes by so fast that we dont even realize it and by the time we're 30 or 50 or 65 we look back and wonder where all that time went?! It went by so fast. We're so focused on our everyday lives that we don't even pay attention to what's going on around us. We waste so much time here on Earth if we don't glorify God's name. We should be living for God because he created us and gave us a purpose to be here. I actually take moments a few times out of my week to pause and reflect. I focus on my breathing and remind myself how lucky and gifted I am to be able to take this breath, I am still alive on this Earth, God has put me here for a reason. I should not be taking any day for granted because this life is given to me. Not everyone lives to their max age, people come and go constantly whether it's by accident or whether it's planned.
I was told to live each day of life to the fullest because you never know when something happens to your loved one and you have regrets or you wish you had done something before. I think it's a good thing to think about but we're all human, we don't think that way 24/7. Say goodnight to your wife/husband everynight before you go to bed no matter what, kiss each other every morning before going to work for the day, do something nice to show you love or appreciate them, be there for your friends and family when they need you, keep in touch with those people because things are happening every second of our lives, cherish them all. I thought it was a great lesson and really puts things into perspective. I encourage everyone to take a few minutes out of their day to breath and reflect on your day. It can be while you're cooking or exercising or just relaxing outside, it's all in our minds so be mindful. :)

I am profoundly deaf in both ears with a Cochlear Implant on my left ear. I'm not afraid to talk about it, I don't mind people asking me questions about it. I have been deaf since I was 2 and I hope to get my second implant within this year (2012). I read lips very well and do not know sign language. I am an Austinite, I love the city and always will. I have a younger sister who is nothing like me but we're best friends. I have a boyfriend named Zachary, we have been together for almost two years now and he is also my best friend. I am new at blogging and hope to make this my new hobby.
