Life is EXTREMELY slightly different this year than a year ago.
It is unbelievable how much life can change in just one year. In just one semester, in just one day.
I feel more secure in knowing that I am exactly where I am suppose to be and this point in my life than ever before. Things are just as they should be for my story although they may not seem it. I mean, 27yr old with a 2 1/2 year old girl, getting divorced, failed out of school, bartending/cocktailing in Arlington and needing a roommate or a place to live soon doesn't exactly sound like a great plan for success. And while I am on that, I just wanted to say that I am really sick of hearing the word SUCCESS. I think it may be the word that sums up the Northern Virginia/DC area in which I live. I heard that word from four 5 different people today alone. Makes me want pinch something really hard.
If you have talked to me at all you should know that (thanks to L. and an amazing book called A Million Miles and a Thousand Years by Donald Miller) I see my life as a story. I have given the LORD the pen or keyboard, I mean...it is 2010 and I am pretty sure GOD has a sweet mac to write a bigger and better story than the one that I was living....and....GOD is so faithful.
Life as never felt more full and alive and right smack dab where I am suppose to be.
This page that was today was a good page.
Something new came from it.
I pressed into the LORD a bit more, wanting to not miss a thing that HE has for me.
I made dinner that was delicious and even better than the first time I made that pot pie.
I loved on Bailey harder and remembered to tell her, when she spilled her popsicle ALL over the floor,-"No Big Deal!"
I learned more about futbol and may be rooting for Uruguay.
An opportunity also came up for some overseas travel in the fall. I have been asked to go many years previously but it only feels right as of now. Please pray that the will of the Lord would be done and I would chose the path that I feel HIM leading.
Thanks for reading.
I hope the Celtics win.
