are just a few of the things that are currently occupying my desk at the moment.
oh what a beautiful weekend God blessed me to enjoy. it was Fall break and so very needed to get away from the craziness that has been going on this semester!
i went to Enid, OKlahoma to enjoy some time among the cows on my friend (CAP) Rachel’s dairy farm! it was such a blast! we enjoyed stopping at her grandparents in Ponca City and catching up with them. such a beautiful home they reside in and her grandmother is such a neat lady - she’s a school librarian and did she ever have such a neat collection of books. made me miss volunteering at the Urbandale Public library.
in other news, i’m ecstatic about all that the Lord is teaching me in the school of experience out side of the classroom. i have so much to learn and i hope and pray He continues to show me in all i experience what He wants me to learn in all of life.
some things i enjoyed last weekend:
sharing recipes, friendships, english muffin bread, learning how and using a reciprocating saw, loving others, music making, etc
this week is bound to be for sure busy. time for the downhill stretch of the semester to begin and the race is on. i have 3 weekends until i venture off to visit Grace at Mizzou and roll into a road academic trip to Ft. Wayne my next school home for 2 or 3 years.
and before i pilgrimage to Indiana i will enjoy a full weekend in Seward this coming weekend, then volunteer at a jr. high youth gathering in Des Moines back for a week before missing classes while gone to Ft. Wayne.
there’s always lots to do and little time to complete everything. (so maybe i do that to myself…but….being busy keeps me on my toes and out of trouble!)
Lord, give me your strength to get it all done and may you open my eyes to see your power at work in my life in all that i experience in this life. i thank you for the strength you give me in Christ Jesus. AMEN.
