So I have had this small desire to stay longer in india. But I was getting excited to leave and even made plans for the day after I arrived, but just prayed and said, "God whatever is your will." It made the most sense to leave and so I booked my ticket, but last night there was talk about staying and this morning it was decided. To benefit a few people, I changed my ticket. :)
I have been super tired. This year was the most stressful year of my life and these two months in india were just what I needed to recharge and rest. I have been in a constant vegetative state. Not really interacting like I normally do or anything, but everyday I feel things are better. I got a lot of calls from people saying goodbye :) but now I can talk to everyone for a longer time!
It's been a great two months. Got everything I wanted. Down to, I have been eyeing this one outfit in a particular color and there was always something not quite right about it at every store. But I just got the perfect one, for cheap. I also was thinking one night I should have gotten this black one I didn't. I usually only like to buy what I really want, the way I want it, not lacking anything in my mind and that had not been the case with the black one I had passed up, but I wanted a black one and thought I should have just gotten it. Well, the next day we go shopping for something else and what do I see, a black one, just like I really wanted! No compromise :) I had one last thing of clothing on my mind in terms of buying, but not feeling it was necessary and even that came my way the same day! :) And then I got two more! Colors and everything I wanted, but didn't even remember were on my list!
I really wanted to go to my cousin's son's birthday party because I haven't seen her in 2-3 years but since the party was tonight and I found out too late I thought I wouldn't be able to go and :) I just got back and I was so happy to see everyone. With all the extra time we can plan a cousin's thing!
I got a chance to cook (it's my latest "thing") and now have 10 more days to experiment. :)
I get to see the movie I wanted to see, but was missing the release of by a day. For all the inconvenience it caused to delay my trip, the benefits are sooo great! I love how either way things go, there are sooo many positives!
I get to see the movie I wanted and I'm almost my old self, so up for traveling and meeting people again! mIght even take a train trip somewhere! YAY!
I had to cancel a lot of my appts, BUT online today I was able to talk to two people about the future of save each one! So we are talking about expanding the teaching program to the philippines (something on my heart since I went there in 2009 - same location too!!) Oh I love life and how God is doing things!!! I suddenly feel there isn't enough time in the day and year to do everything in my heart! So many people to help and so much to do for God!! If we all could just be his hands and feet, this world would change and be sooo beautiful! For those of you who pray for me, please pray that I never stop and settle for the easy comfortable life and instead truly live my life for the purpose that God has. And please pray and ask God, what He would have you to do each and every day when you wake up! We are all called to be a catalyst of positive change. What is God calling you to do today!
