So it is my last week as a proper student in Australia, how crazy is that?! Classes end this week! I have been here for 5 months almost and they have been the quickest 5 months of my life. I am not ready to part at all.
Australia has become such a fond place in my heart and to lose that feels as though it is to lose part of me.
As tonight was our last formal dinner and I have hung up my robe for the last time (yes, cause we wear robes like Harry Potter…) I am no where near for this. I have less than 30 days left in Australia as a student and that, that brings me to tears.
The friends I have made here and the life I have experienced has been so wonderful. Part of me yearns to be back in the familiar of a familial or friendly hug, but I realize I have found some of that here.
I have found family in Christ in my beautiful sisters Nat and Crystal, who are there no matter what to pray for me. I have found a family in Sarah and Ian and baby Winston as a true family who are living for Christ.
I have found friendship in my corridor, in the craziness that is 3rd North, in the amazing fresh-freshers I have grown closer with and with every face I see and spend time with here in college.
Queen’s has been such an integral part in my time here in Australia and I am not ready for these next 30 days to be my only time with these wonderful people.
With that, I will leave you with a charge.
Go tell someone how much they mean to you today, this may be the only way they ever know.
God’s blessings be rich and merciful among you.
