thankfulness

Thanks, MC

Thanks, MC

I have found that it becomes easier and easier to forget how thankful we are for the things and people in our daily lives. Of course we're thankful for our friends and family, but we don't always say that actively. The same goes for Mississippi College. I spend the majority of the year here, and I'm definitely caught in the day to day grind of classes, work, and social events. But at the Choctawk, we want to take the time to say thank you to Mississippi College. I think I speak for all of us when I say that MC has changed our lives for the better. 

Finding Christmas Cheer

Finding Christmas Cheer

It was a winter's evening. Christmas lights illumined the tower, and the hum of voices filled the room. It should have been a cheery scene, but the topic of conversation lingered on finals,  to-do lists, and finding perfect gifts. Stress tangibly radiated from my dear friends as they recalled all they had to accomplish before Christmas break.

Without reflection, thanksgiving can never exist. In the midst of going from point A to point B, from point B to another point then to the next point, thankfulness is lost. We are discontented because we are so consumed by our to-do lists that we forget to pause and reflect. We miss things. 

Dream a Little

So I started thinking about the smaller dreams: not the life-altering revolution that captivated my attention for years, but smaller gifts that I had taken for granted.  And when I got into the habit of living in the gratitude of these small gifts, I freely lived in the deepest contentment.
