I fill these pages with the things that fill my mind.
GPOY I am wearing pants and I am actually okay about it!
*Katie, my roommate, told me last night that she has only seen me wear jeans once. I decided I should wear pant today. (Did you know that the proper way to introduce someone is to say their name first, then how you know them. That way, it puts the emphasis on them and not on you and how you know them.)
*I’ve consumed 32 ounces of coffee this morning. I know because that’s the size of my french press.
*Wednesday’s are my favorite days of the week. I get to work at the church, Bible study, dinner with Celia and Dee, and then hang out with friends at the House of Requirement.
*I’ve been drawing Valentine’s day cards for people. You know… because that’s what a good single girl does this time of the year.
*I have a new jam. No Church in the Wild. I’m not ashamed.
*I haven’t been sleeping much because I’ve been staying up until two or three every night reading. I still have tons of energy during the day so I just keep doing it.
*I’m saving up for a Janome. It’s my dream sewing machine. My tax return will cover most of it. Weeee. This is a big deal to me because it will be the sewing machine that I’ll use to sew my future children’s clothes and stuff.
*Katie and I are going on a Galentine’s date next Monday to see The Vow. I’m excited.
*Serious time: Bible study a few weeks ago, it’s on Colossians, has been on my mind. We were studying the very last chapter where Paul is closing the letter. He starts talking about Tychicus, “his beloved brother, faithful minister, fellow servant.” We talked about how all of these traits point out Tychicus’ consistency in the ministry and in Paul’s life. Ever since then, God has been teaching me that when the gospel invades our hearts, we don’t give up on each other. No matter what. We are consistent in ministering and encouraging one another towards our common goal, spreading the gospel and glorifying God. Even Paul, while he was in prison, was focused on the believers in the churches. He was writing them and encouraging them while he was in prison! That is pretty faithful and consistent. I want to become a friend, mother, wife, daughter, sister, that will continue encouraging, loving, and glorifying God even while in prison, or in over my head, swamped with home work, or stressed with work stuff. I want the people in my life to know I’m never giving up on them, not because I am great, but because I am so grateful that Christ doesn’t give up on me. I want all my relationships to be fueled by the gospel and to reflect the gospel. So that’s what I’ve been working on. There are a few relationships I’ve given up on and I’m going to fix them because how can I truly believe and celebrate the gospel if I give up on people over petty details?
That’s all I have to share. Do something out of the box today. Whatever the equivalent of ‘wearing pants’ is for you; do it.
