Blessed Beyond Belief

Good evening all! I had a fantastic (and SUPER busy) weekend. Hope you all are doing just as fabulous as I am.

Lots of good news from this week. Remember how I was upset that I got my heart broken? Well, on Monday morning, one of my best friends asked me to prom. He's so sweet. So I'm looking forward to that now.

We had musical practice all week long so unfortunately I missed both of those meetings I was planning to attend for stigma and mental health. Thankfully I have 3 meetings beginning next week for MHA. It's called the Honest Open Proud Workshop and I'm super excited to see what I'll be learning and hearing from others. It should be an amazing experience and I'm so thankful for this opportunity.  But anyways, it was a longgg week of rehearsal. Lots of late nights and homework too. However, it was fun bonding with some pit band kids. We finished our last performance this afternoon and I'm honestly super glad I decided to join the musical crew this year.

And last but not least, I went to state solo and ensemble this weekend and received a first place there! All the hard work really shined through and I can't thank God enough for blessing me with such talent. It's silly for me to even question it sometimes...

I'd also like to thank my band director for being so encouraging to me when I needed a little support lately...whether it be music or other drama. And thanks to pretty much everyone who dealt with an overtired Marissa this week! It was long but incredibly fun. Just more blessings that God has opened my eyes to!

While there have been a few rough days here and there, God let this past week really hit me in the heart. He never fails to amaze me. He has saved me from suicide multiple times. Not only that, but He has saved me from eternal damnation! I am forgiven, and if that isn't a reason to smile...I don't know what is! I deserve nothing from Him, and here stands my God, giving me more than enough. Giving me success, love, and grace. What a wonderful God I can place my faith in.

Until later my loves,
Marissa Mayer
