GUYZ. HELLO. IT’S BEEN A MINUTE.
This is posting on Friday, but I’m currently typing this on a Thursday night, after getting back from Texas for a work conference, and eating Filipino food and watching One Tree Hill on Netflix. After this, I’ll probably work on my expense report for work…ooorrr work on my book…
Friends…the Lord is working and moving in so many ways. I feel so overwhelmed (since when am I not overwhelmed though?), but in such a good way. Like, my room may look like a total wreck like it normally does, and I may have a ton of things to do, but there have been so many blessings that I’m just in awe right now.
When I was told I would be going to Texas for a Women in Trucking conference, I was honestly skeptical about how it would be beneficial to me, minus the fact that I would get the opportunity to travel for work. But God totally dismissed the skepticism I had, and taught me so many things through the speakers, and the experiences I had. I never thought that I could utilize so much information from a trucking conference in things that I am genuinely interested in, and working on.
While there, I was able to meet up with two of my first cousins, whom I hadn’t seen in SO MANY YEARS (you can see the picture of us on the right – it’s my latest Instagram post). Being able to have dinner with them, and just catch up on life, hear how the Lord has been working in their lives, and listening to the wisdom they had was seriously my favorite part about being in Texas. And I cannot wait to continue to keep in touch with them, and be able to see them more often!
Lots of life transitions happening – my internship will be ending in like a week-and-a-half, and during this time, I need to start packing, and continue trying to line up stuff for when I move off the island. I’m kind of sad to leave the island, but this means I gotta make the most of it.
And recently the Lord has just been placing on my heart how important it is to rach out to other people. Yes, my main focus should be on Him, and spending time with Him, and seeking Him out. With this, I’ve been trying to really pray for my loved ones – family and friends who are all going through different situations through different realms of life. There is so much to be prayed for, and I am thankful to be able to go to the Lord with all of these things because He is the only Foundation that can withstand it all.
Honestly, guys, I’ve been totally sucking at writing every day for that. Being in Texas really threw me for a loop, even though I was able to work on it a little bit on my phone. But I just need the full space and atmosphere, ya know? A cup of coffee, my laptop instead of my phone…nice weather because the weather in Texas while I was there was mostly overcast.
I’m hoping that now that the weekend is within reach, I’ll be able to set aside a giant chunk of time, and take what I learned from the conference this past weekend, and WRITE, WRITE, WRITE. Because I think the direction I want to go in has become a little more clearer.
Okay, I love y’all, but I gotta go. I still have work tomorrow (or, I guess today since this is posting on Friday), and I have so much to do. Trust me when I say this though…I miss writing to you guys every day. I know I said that last time, but I really do. I’m glad I get a break from it to refresh my mind and ideas and such. But I truly do miss #JustStartWriting. Excited and ready for its comeback.
Have a blessed Friday, and a blessed weekend.
