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!
