Getting Ready for College...At Last

Hi There! It's been awhile since my last post and I am hoping to fall back into the groove of writing again. It's been another year of growth and learning for me-in my faith, schooling, music, and essentially entire life. Over the past months, seemingly insurmountable obstacles have been conquered, broken hopes and dreams restored, and a resurgence in my faith in Christ as my only hope and redemption has blossomed within me. Soli Deo Gloria.
The chapter in my life entitled "HIGH SCHOOL" is finally finished- including years' worth of writing, re-writing, and editing. Now, as my university education looms ever nearer, I look back at all the many wonderful blessings and memories during the past four years and cherish each with a happiness that seems to grow every day. Truly, the days for me now are bittersweet. It is with joy that I enter college life with many wonderful plans for pursuing music composition, but I also long for the comfort and rest found within the arms of my family. My prayer is that my trust will be rooted firmly in the Lord, and that I will look to Him always.
In two months' time, I shall step on the campus grounds of the University of Miami and (hopefully!) enter an exciting time of my life. My roommate and I are communicating back and forth, eagerly sharing ideas for what to bring, how to prepare, and praying about how we can be shining lights for the Lord while at school!
I hope to post more regularly, and look forward to sharing this journey with you all!

Dear Kate, Hello, my name is Christel Hutson. Although not well, I do know both your sweet mother, and Rose Lacefield, and love and admire each of them. I just wanted to say good luck in the fall with college! I too have a college age daughter. She attends Murray State University in Murray, Ky. She is studying to become an English liason / communications teacher, and hopes to one day teach English in Saudi Arabia, perhaps a position with the US Embassy. I have listened to your beautiful songs many times. You truly have a gift from God. Here's wishing you all that you deserve in school. May God keep and watch over you in your journey. xoxo Christel
