This has been a busy but very productive week! I think it is because I have been so busy at work from the time I get in until the time I leave! I can't believe an entire 7 days has already gone by! Sheesh. Time is flying this month.

My birthday was yesterday and it was wonderful! Sean and I had dinner at Panera Bread (my favorite!) then came home and watched a Harry Potter movie (in preparation for the new movie coming out next week!!). For my birthday, he bought me an awesome set of wooden bowls & stands from the Philippines when he was there earlier this year... he kept them a secret for MONTHS! I was impressed. They're beautiful... I'll post pictures once I download them from my phone.

This past Sunday, we went to downtown Fresno where our college students are living and serving for several weeks this summer. Fresno has some of the poorest areas in the nation, and they are down there making a difference. After going to an evening service at Cornerstone(awesome!), we went out to dinner and talke and got to know them. It was so much fun! I'm really excited for what God is doing through them and the seeds that are being planted in the students, as well as in the people whom they are encountering.

Several verses have been rolling around in my head and making their way to my heart in these past few weeks... just thought I'd share:

Micah 6:8
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

1 John 4:16 & 18-19
16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. ... 18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. 19 We love because he first loved us.

Proverbs 24:12
Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act.

They may seem sporadic and unrealted to you, but to me, they fit perfectly into the tapestry that is currently being woven in my heart.

So, that's all for now. We have a busy weekend ahead of us! Our a/c broke last night, so we have no air conditioning in our house! The guy can't come out to look at it until Monday!!! Yikes!

  1. As I have read your last few posts, I've noticed a theme in them that seems similar to things going on in my own life. It seems like we are both on the edge of something, waiting on God. Praying that you are sensitive to His leading and putting your trust in Him :)
