Just so you know.

The roach is dead. Kati and I had a group effort killing spree last night. It took about 30 minutes. And there's probably a ton of roach guts in our napkin basket. But alas, he's gone. Thank you Lord, that thing was disgusting!

really cool things creepin in your kitchen...

Likeeeeee big, huge, giant roaches!! Yeahhhh, we have them. And I'm not excited. Let me tell you the story...

Katy and I are studying in the living room and she gets up to make some Ramen. Then she screams. Then I JUMP up off the floor, where I am diligently studying for exercise physiology, and run to the kitchen.

She says, "sorry. There's a roach in here!"

I say, "It's ok. Gross..." But then I smile and tell her, "You should kill it."

So she goes to get get a tennis shoe and I let her know that it's best to just put both of them on your feet and stomp on the shady fellow scurryin around and if you miss, it's ok because then you can jump on him with your other foot (Good advice for any girl trying to kill a roach if you ask me).

She only had the one shoe but she did put it on. Then we stood there. And then she said "I can't do it!"

So i went and put on my tennis shoes and came back to the kitchen because I was gona git that sucka. Because he's gross. Unfortunately, right as I was working up enough courage to stomp his guts out, he crawled underneath the oven and has not come out since.

I banged on the oven, I turned on the oven, and I waited and waited. He did not come. But then we both had to leave, so he may actually be creepin around our apt, just waiting to attack us in the night! So yeah, I'm alittle worried.

What the heck roaches? Your kind is not welcome here. Please leave at our nearest convenience, which is right now.
Thanks,
Kati, Julie, and Katy.

God, I trust You?

I feel like this is a sentence people throw around alot. Well, ok, I wrote a question, but you know what I mean. A good response to anyone going through a "tough time", if you're a believer, is to say "Just put your trust in the Lord..." As if to say that's going to solve all your problems...

Truth:It's not.

But before you start freaking out on me, hear me out. We are called to "trust in the Lord with all [our] hearts and lean not on [our] own understanding" but sometimes I just have to wonder: what does that even mean? I've been saying that I do that since I was like 5 or 7 or something crazy young like that. But I said it because that's what everyone says. Even now, I don't feel like I have a great grasp on what it looks like to just completely "let go and let God!" (yeah, sorry. I'm done with the cheesy cliches now.)

But let's be real. I would really really really like to say "alright God. I don't know what the heck you're doing, but shoot louise, I'm just gona trust you" and actually do it.

The truth is that I want to, I do...but I also have this little small issue with being in control. Of something. Of anything. So naturally, I try to play God and fool myself and others into thinking that I have everything under control, when indeed I do not. But it feels good to be in control. Because I can see myself. I already know MY plans. It's safer. It's comfortable. And that's how I like it...

And I mean, yeah, it's easier to not trust people because then you're less likely to get hurt. And everything is easy-schmeasy...til it's not anymore.

Truth: God is the only person worth trusting. His word never fails, and neither does His love. And whatever we go through, the things that He already has planned, are to bring us closer to Him and become more like His son Jesus. Granted, sometimes this process may hurt, or be uncomfortable, but I think in the end we'll see that it's worth it.

So, I don't know what's coming. And I don't know if I'll necessarily like it. But I do know that I'd rather put my trust in Someone who actually knows what He's doing, than in someone who fails everytime (me). So God, here ya go. I wana walk with you closely, and learn what it means to for real put my trust in You.
