Sometimes I’ll stop what I’m doing, look around, and think to myself I have got to be the luckiest girl on the planet. Moments like these are when I know I’m just where God wants me to be. I smile from ear to ear, and my heart is overflowing with love and joy and contentment. It’s as if time freezes just for a while, so I can enjoy it a little bit longer.
A few weeks ago there was a freshmen dance held on the roof of downtown San Diego’s public library. As I danced, I looked around saw all the people and saw how beautiful the city looked, and I knew I was in the right place. I was surrounded by people who encouraged me as we danced the night away under city lights. It felt like a scene in a movie.
Choosing Point Loma was a simple decision. There was not a doubt in my mind that God wanted me here. Over the past three years I’ve had many moments like this. Many nights where I watched as the sun went down and created a breathtaking mural of violet and orange and pink and red, and I was blown away. Many times where words couldn’t describe how grateful I was for friends who made me laugh but also held my hand as I cried. Many opportunities where I thought to myself, am I really doing this. For this season of my life I couldn’t have imagined myself anywhere besides Point Loma.
