Looking back I'm speechless at how incredibly self-focused I was. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I was going through all that pain because there was a man that would meet me three years later that needed to hear about Jesus. Guess what, none of this was ever about me. The break-up, the turmoil, the waiting and the wondering. I see so clearly now that this is not my life. I do not own it. I do not control it, though I try so desperately to. It is really, truly, 100% about Jesus and what He is doing.
And I am SO grateful that I get to be a part of His plan! It's worth every second of uncertainty and waiting. And there is still so much more that I have yet to experience! This is only the beginning of the road...

I believe this was between her trying to eat up one of my garden gloves and waltzing into the living room with my loaf of bread in her mouth I had literally just taken out of the freezer. My creativity exploded on the dining table.
What's a craft weekend without some baking?
Sewing project: Make an apron out of random scraps. I love it.And what's the perfect way to end a weekend? Some Jesus time and shopping! Somehow I managed to stay so off task this weekend I haven't even gotten a chance to sit down and read my Bible. So I will be relaxing this evening with my beloved Bible. And somehow Friday afternoon I managed to sweet talk my boss into letting us have Monday off. So my mom and I are having a thrift store hayday tomorrow morning. Goodbye tax refund money!

I say I like being single
that I'm in a good place
I say I want freedom
all with a straight face
I say I'm in no hurry
the right one will come along
I say don't worry about me
there is nothing wrong
I say a lot of things
because I hadn't planned
on being the one still waiting
for someone to hold my hand

I made plans. He changed plans. I planted. He uprooted. I asked for forgiveness. He forgave. I was finally willing and open to a new job. He blessed me with a wonderful one. I learned to budget and almost reached the top of my small mound of debt. He blessed my finances. I pursued boys. He pursued me. I cried. He comforted. I learned. He taught.
He has been faithful. He will always be faithful. He is the only constant in my life.
And so my resolution for 2010 is to finish strong. Look around me. Be a servant. Be willing. Be open to opportunity and change. See where God is working and join Him. Kindle afresh a fire that will start me strong for the year ahead.

Not spending time with God and eating when I'm not hungry are my two hang-ups. When I lose focus of the big picture, then all I see is the small picture, the one with me at the center. At The Gathering, the speaker asked us to identify what sparks our interest in new friends.
