The Final Show: Homecoming

Saturday, October 21, 2017

I cannot believe I am a senior in high school. Truthfully I still think I'm a tiny freshman, wandering lost around the school, but then I remember I only have a couple months left in this place until I am let free into the real world.
But that's what makes life great, right?! Rather then fearing the future I want to take in the now. I'm here to celebrate my lasts of high school and share them with you! So of course this year is my final year of high school dances and homecoming has officially come and gone. To me homecoming is the most casual of dances and I think most would agree.

I wore a yellow dress I got from Kohls. It is a baby doll styled dress with a bejeweled neck line. It is quite beautiful in my opinion! I struggled with my hair a ton but in the end I decided to pull some hair back into braids and I think it turned out well!

It was truly a wonderful night. But the dressing up and dancing is not everything that makes this homecoming significant. When I entered high school I was absolutely terrified. I was intimidated by the new setting and I had no idea what I was getting into. Some of my closest older friends sensed my nerves and gave me their gracious advice. They told me to "go to every football game and every dance. To embrace every part of high school because it only comes around once." I really took this to heart because I knew they were right. I went to anything and everything I wanted to go to and still have a couple more months to check a couple things off my list.

So I encourage you to do the same. Whether you're starting school now or in the middle of it or in a totally different situation: make the most of it. Don't let your fears hold you back from living your best life. We have so many opportunities to do amazing things and sometimes we get lost and distracted.
Jeremiah 29:11 states, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." This tells us that God already has some amazing plans for us and that we don't need to worry about the unknown. Obviously we don't get to see the map of our life and we don't get to know what the future holds, but when we put our faith in God we are able to stay calm and peaceful knowing the future will be okay. Our future is in God's hand and we mustn't forget that.
Therefore when I stress over the lasts I will be facing this year I'm reminded there are great things in store for me because I allow my future to be in God's hands. I hope you are all reminded as well. We all go through hardships, but you are never alone.


Enjoy a couple of my photos from that night!
