So here's where I'm at.

Denver is decidedly NOT in a good place, and I can see now that God got me out of there right when I needed to be out of there. Bandaids heal the wound, but it still hurts when they rip your arm hairs out.

I'm focused on making my life here in Katy the absolute best that I can. I'm active in a church for the first time in too many years. I've got a Bible study group and starting on August 3rd I'll be teaching Kindergarten Sunday school. I'm spending time with God every single day, in prayer, in devotionals, and/or in my Bible. My heart is returning to my first love, and it's what I've needed for so so long.

I've got a lot of tastings on my calendar, and confirmation from my boss this morning that she'll be keeping me busy with tastings for a while. I like that. I've applied for several full time (with benefits) jobs down here, and I'm going to continue applying until I find one. Once I'm gainfully employed, Kevin and I will be moving in together. We're both excited to be living not with our moms again. Not that we don't love our moms to pieces, because we do, but because we prefer living like adults.

Until all is said and done and a divorce is final, as in the final decree has been signed by a judge, I will continue to say "if" and not "when" we get divorced. In our simple human minds, we're impatient and all too often believe that God is late. Obviously, I've been doing this a lot lately. But His time is so perfect. I was extremely encouraged by my friend Eryn's blog about God providing for them right on time, and it really helps put me back in my place. I will cry, and I am hurt, but no matter what, I trust that my sweet sweet Lord has plans for my life, and it's not my place to try and understand or figure them out. He created THE UNIVERSE. I'm pretty confident that He's got my life under control.

I got your message from yesterday this morning; I'm so sad I missed your call! But I'm so glad that my blog encouraged you. It encouraged me, too.

This morning in my quiet time, I was reading in 1 Samuel about how Saul turned against David. David did nothing but serve Saul and follow the Lord, but Saul was jealous and persecuted David. Saul couldn't hurt David though, because David was following after God, and God took care of him. It was a nice reminder to me that no matter what the people on this earth do to us, we cannot be destroyed, because God is on our side. Anyway, it was encouraging to me, and it made me think of you. :)

Love you.
