I did something unusual.

I joined a soccer team for the summer.

Praise God.

I have a job. I will be working in a store that sells used baby things!

I'm excited.

And guess how I got the job.
Word of mouth. Go figure.

Being a babysitter of four young kids is a blast. Here's to learning even more about taking care of a household, besides laundry and cooking and cleaning!

I hope Nicole has a nice holiday:)

musings on the brain lately.

Some of the general thoughts going through my head, put to song.

St Patrick's Prayer

Christ be with me and within me
Christ behind me and before
Christ beside me and to win me
Christ to comfort and restore
Christ beneath me and above me
Christ in quiet and in danger
Christ in hearts of all that love me
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger

Christ in every heart that's broken
Christ in every joy and pain
Christ in every word that's spoken
Christ in sun and moon and rain
Christ in resting and in rising
Christ the Lord of all my life
Christ to guide me and to shield me
Christ protecting me in strife

It's been a while...

...and I don't even know if anyone even bothers checking here anymore. Well, if you do, I want to let you know that I'm still alive! I'm still jobless, I'm still searching for a job, I'm still learning a lot about myself and about God. I'm still learning a lot about trust, about using time wisely, about waiting patiently. I'm still learning about friendships and relationships. I'm learning a lot of things right now, and oddly enough, there is no other place I'd rather be. How can I say that? There is only one reason: because I know that God has it all in control, and nothing I can do to try to change where I am will change that fact. I want to be where God wants me to be, and I believe that is right where I am.

It is awesome to believe that...after struggling so long with it.

Well, if we were enjoying autumn weather into the first part of December, we aren't now! The world is all white out there, and the air is filled with snow swirling to the ground. It's finally looking a lot like Christmas! So many people say they don't like the snow, or can't stand the cold, but for the record, I love snow and I enjoy bundling up to go outside. I don't care if it snows for days. I don't like this song at all, but Let It Snow anyway:)

I am stoked to crochet my blanket!!
. . . one way to keep myself occupied while jobless.

I immensely enjoy cooking in color.

I just plain enjoy cooking a whole lot!

new interests

So, since I'm still jobless...and Christmas is coming soon (woo!), Kimberly and I went shopping. (the Christmas shopping part was pretty unsuccessful, I must say.) We decided to go into the book store in the mall. Mistake! Or maybe not. I got a sudden desire to buy a whole bunch of books I would never usually even care about.

We went to Value Village and I spent probably too long looking over the books and searching out what I wanted.
I was successful in some areas. Like finding almost the entire set of Anne of Green Gables in great shape! A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes!!

I have yet to find some William Shakespeare. I was seriously sooo close to getting the complete works online from Chapters today. But I don't think that is wise since it's just before Christmas. And I just bought a car.

Yep. That's the update. Books are my new interest.....Shakespeare and Dickens none the less!

That, among other things that have been finding their way into my interests, makes me wonder what is wrong with me lately:)
