Roaring Mouse Thoughts

This morning at work, a guest said that she had overheard that I was taking a trip. So I answered, "Yep. I'm going to Zimbabwe on Tuesday." We both were shocked and laughed. I think I was just as surprised as she was. It's just not something you ever expect to hear yourself say. I'm going to Zimbabwe on Tuesday. Speaking of hearing yourself say things, the other day I left a message for my boss on the answering machine and had the misfortune of discovering it later when I came in. I honestly didn't know who it was at first. No wonder Pal would laugh at me whenever I would attempt to fight with her. I guess I'm not the lion I thought I was. And speaking of lions, I should start packing for my trip. And speaking of Pal, I should do it soon, because I think she's coming into town this weekend.

Deep Thoughts V: Permanight

Always darkest before the dawn, unless of course it's just a total eclipse. Ah crap.

Au naturel

I went on a milk run this evening and decided to take the trail route. I usually like to edit my photos, but I thought God did a rather nice job on this one and didn't need my help.

Deep Thoughts IV: Don't Rock the Boat

I don't like making waves. It makes me seasick.

Just for You

It's a strange feeling when your day to day life is uneventful, but you know that the overall picture is nothing short of mad action thrills. What I'm trying to say is, the individual events that take place in my life haven't seemed particularly blogworthy (with the exception of Fall Retreat, in which case my lack of posting is due to sheer laziness and mental chaos), but the story that God is writing...the things He is doing inside and around me are too big to contain in a single post (or blog for that matter).

Anyway, for Tot's sake, I will try my best to update a bit. I am working on my testimony for when I go to Africa (in less than one month!!!), so hopefully you will get at least a summarized version of my (recent) life soon. Right now I am feeling both blessed and stressed. (Yes. I'm a poet and I know it...did you?). Blessed by the work God is doing in my heart and in my relationships. Blessed to be the Luckiest Girl in the World. Blessed to witness miraculous provisions. Blessed to be used by God when I am anything but useful. And stressed because I am leaving for Zimbabwe in exactly 4 weeks and I feel so unprepared. The beautiful thing about life's stresses and our God is that the two of them combined equal just another opportunity to be blown away by more blessing. I am excited. Pray for me! You will probably all be hearing from me soon through letters requesting prayer support. If I don't have your address, you can e-mail it to me. If you don't want to hear from me, you can e-mail me not to. to work now. This is an unusual post for me. No pictures. No witticisms. Ah well.
