Even though this week has about pounded me into the ground I cannot help but smile right now. This week has been full of classes, homework, running to and from Brea for one-on-ones and youth nights and movies and dinners with friends. I feel so completely blessed right now; my cup runneth over.
God has put so many incredible people in my path, not even in significant ways, but in small ways that I bet these people have no idea how precious they have been to me. I've had people who've invited me to sit with them at lunch and dinner when I thought I would have to eat alone. I've had people interupt my studying when I needed it the most, just to hang out. I've had roommates sing and dance and jokingly yell at me for getting them hooked on High School Musical. I've had people call me to go out for dinner and a movie when literally a minute before I resigned myself to the fact that I had nothing to do that evening and no one to eat with so I defiantly was not going to eat at all and was going to study all night. I've had multiple people treat me to Jamba Juice and a wonderful field work buddy to drive with.
And I've had more hugs than I can count.
I may be miles from home(s), but it is beginning to feel more and more like home here too.
I am even driving like a pro, jumping from interstate to interstate. (Take I-5 to the 57 to Imperial Highway. Take the 57 to I-5, jump over to 55 and merge onto the 405. Today I even went I-5 to 55 to 91 then back 91 to 55 to 405.)
But in all seriousness I am so grateful to God for leading me to this place. Without a doubt this is where I am supposed to be. I know my life is going to be insanely busy this year, but I have so much peace right now.
Lord God, thank you that we can cast all our burdens on you. Thank you for your unfailing love. Thank you for overcoming the world.
