Hey all! Just checking in. How is everybody?

I have been thinking a lot lately, and the more I build back up my relationship with God, the more I realize that He has instilled in me some great values. I'm pretty sure I know just what I am looking for in a mate, and every time I start to doubt myself is where I mess up. I know what I want, I know what God wants for me, and I think they match up! Now it is time to actively wait; to use this time to grow into the woman God wants me to be.

My life is stretching me in two very different directions. I have a pretty "heavy" job (I'm a child welfare caseworker--I work with families where children have been removed from their homes due to a safety threat. Usually domestic violence or methamphetamine use) and it's forcing me to grow up a little, yet many of my friends are still college students so I very much am stubbornly clinging to being "young." It's an interesting transition and to be honest, I'm having fun with it. And I feel like I'm meant to. I get a little impatient now and again for God to help me find that "somebody" but I really think he's got it all planned out. The closer I am to Him the more peace I feel about it.

Grace and peace to all of you!

an update on me...

I recently moved to a better part of town and have a few ideas on what I want to do. The only big thing is my project that I will be working on in June.

My views are sadly still rather negative right now, mostly from the stigma that someone living off of SSI is in fact lazy and non productive. I tried that one Catholic Match website and sadly don't have any extra cash to spend into it. If it was a free meeting place I could get into it more.

Still not sure what God has planned for me. I know my own negativity doesn't help matters. Just that I have truly been burned really bad in my past relationships.
