Program Dilemma. There is nothing I want more in this life on earth than to dive into God’s word, become more spiritual, and therefore more loving and Christ-like. My program is currently not providing the sort of education I expected, but God is of course working on a greater plan. He has brought so many obvious blessings here, and I am now just praying about clarity on where to go next.
Music. I have Roy Woods’ album on repeat because I’m kind of obsessed with his voice.
New Job? I just started a draft for this bowl recipe (see the end of yesterday’s post for more info) for @purejbk and I’m so excited to put energy and love into cooking and tweaking it.
Weight Fluctuating. It matters less and less, but it’s still something to watch. I’ve recently lost some weight, still in a fine and healthy zone but wondering why because I feel I’ve been eating fine. Paying attention to the Lord and His never-failing wisdom in the area of the voices in my head, but if the weight fluctuation is just natural/what my body wants to do, to know that too and just notice less.
Dance Recital. I only taught two classes this semester and they were young girls, so I couldn’t teach anything too complicated but I was SO proud of them and formed so many beautiful relationships.
The Bible. In the past few months I’ve spent the majority of my free home time studying and praying on the Bible and I am *nearly* through the New Testament. As much the Spirit always works in each of our lives, there is nothing more necessary than this sort of study and it is all I ever want to do.
The Bachelor. From the Bible to the Bachelor… ack. I actually loved Ben, Lauren, and JoJo from this season and think Ben was for the most part a pretty standup Bachelor. Ben and Lauren were definitely the right fit.
Jogging. Once all my midterms are over, I really want to start going for my long runs again. I used to genuinely love them before they turned into two-hour jogs for the sole purpose of burning any and every calorie. But I want this PASSION back because it can be so healthy and good.
Johnny’s New School. Ma favourite person is most likely headed to the most perfect university for him in Winnipeg called Providence and seeing his joy about the way the program looks, the opportunities there for him like soccer and business and a close community, it sounds like everything he could have imagined and his happiness is mine.
Writing About Harry Potter. When I was little, my mom took me to a speech therapist for years because she said she knew I always had “so many intelligent things to say” but couldn’t get them out, couldn’t phrase them right. This has gotten SO much better, and I consider myself a genuine and kind person, but as far as expressing my own passions and what’s on my Spirit, they are organized so beautifully in my head and don’t always come out as well unless ive taken time to write it down. Harry Potter is one of my biggest passions and I get to write a paper on its faith context for one of my classes and share about it, and I’m just so excited.
