I’ve had the most amazing two weeks ever. THIS is God’s glory. Just the people I’ve met and talked to, the friends I’ve gotten to connect with, the small and large blessings that have occurred–it’s been incredible.
Friday night was Life Group, and after that was a “mini game night.” Craig, Bob, Lauren and Quincy came over and we played Scattegories. It was so much fun. I lost to Craig. My first time ever losing!! I got 2nd place. But next time, I won’t play so nicely. Teehee.
SO WATCH OUT, CRAIG!
Yesterday, I got to meet with a writer friend of mine–I always have a fun, fun time with her. Then, I went to Kelly’s graduation party (congrats again, for the 238439487th time, hon!). That was a lot of fun. I played volleyball in the pool with her dad, and he’s just a great teammate and a fun person all around. ESPECIALLY since we won all 3 games we played. Woo.
Today was Sunday school. We’re starting a new series based on the “When Godly People Do Ungodly Things” book. I’m really excited about this. It’s all about watching out for the “seduction” of sin and stuff like that. Should be quality learning there. I have homework every single night for that class, too. I’m looking forward to the extra time with God.
After Sunday school was church, and after that, the awesome Katie (live4himalways) and I went to see Shrek 2 (Great movie, I totally recommend it), and we had lunch at Subway. That was a lot of fun.
Since Chris and Aidan were at the zoo, I got the chance to take a nap when I got home. Then I went to Crosstrainers, which was amazing. There were tons of people visiting, and the worship band we had was OUT OF THIS WORLD. I mean, WHOA. They really got us going there. It was good times.
My two weeks have been wonderful. Taking on additional responsibility with Damascus–working with people I have a lot of respect for (like Garth!) to just take the group to a whole new level is exciting and a little bit scary as well. It’s a huge thing. Having the chance to spend time with Emily (yoimemily) and Bizzy (otaku_witch) has been a blessing. I don’t know. I just can’t describe how much I enjoy my new friends. And my old ones. And the ones in between.
(I miss Tami).
I know that Christians are not to expect to be happy all the time. The walk of a Christian is riddled with hardships and difficulties. But it’s times like the past several days where I feel like it’s worth it. God is definitely moving in my life. And I love it. All of it.
So, right now, it’s starting to storm, and I’m hungry for spaghetti. Drat. I can’t shower/bathe tonight because of the lightening, so I have to wake up early tomorrow. Boo. Well, that’s okay. It’s all good!
P.S. I hope J-Lowe didn’t infect me with his poison Ivy!
