I’m gonna venture to say that this might be the beginning of a beautiful tradition for the family … although, not so much for my body image. Tonight the Mister got bold and decided to make fresh-from-scratch ravioli. But this wasn’t just any ravioli, it was stuffed with a pear-ricotta mixture…
I want my husband to be brave like this…wait, why i am i talking about a love life? It’s for deff non existent.
I can’t get over the fact that my 12 year old niece was in a symphony orchestra. Seeing her up there not only makes me so proud to call her my niece but I’m so glad that at a young age she’s doing something amazing.
I’ve gone to some pretty dope places and have done some pretty dope stuff. But there are things i wish i would’ve never stopped. And seeing her up there has really convinced me to just do it…in every aspect of my life. I dont want to be someone who looks back and regrets because they were too scared to chase after what they wanted.
So, as january closes out, i leave you with my new year’s resolution: just do it.
I’ve been reading through the book of numbers in my one year bible, and for the last few days it’s been about how the israelites complained and didn’t trust the Lord and all the promises He gave to them, despite His provisions and their deliverance from egypt. I haven’t been complaining about my circumstances but i will admit i am totally nervous to actually start working on the paper with my staff. This is the week it will all start to go down in history, and I’m just a little spooked. But the Lord has totally been showing me and reminding me that He’s gotten me through worse things and has put me in this position, therefore will not let me fall on my face.
I don’t know, I’ve just been finding a lot of unexpected comfort from the book of numbers, and I’m so blessed. But i mean, i should expect the unexpected with God right?
“so stoked! get to take some dress rehearsal photos tonight of an event at my school that’s taking place this sunday. ahh, i’ve decided that theater photography is definitely one of my callings…”—yes, “one of” because there is just too much good stuff out there to shoot.
the first part of the day was kind of off the wall…i mean, i spent some time with my dad, which was great since our schedules seem to clash quite often. but we found out that a really great family friend left the earth for heaven. it still hasn’t hit me. i’ll probably feel it at the funeral, which i am not looking forward to, since i always get so uneasy during funerals…but who doesn’t?
then some of the conversation i had with my dad really threw me…i don’t know, i’m still trying to decipher it and see if that was the Lord’s answer to me, or just some food for thought. but it put me over so much that i took an hour and a half nap. and that is definitely not what i wanted to do on this beautiful day. like, you know when you know the reason for someone’s actions or motives, but other people don’t see it that way because they don’t know the person the way you do? that’s what it seems like to me. i know the Lord has given my dad insane discernment, but i also know i haven’t been walking in the dark for all this time….i don’t know, i just know it’s not going to be as easy breezy for a while…
but then alex came over and we played just dance 2 for about, oh, 3 hours…it was epic, and we had a little too much fun. i love alex.
there are a lot of “i don’t know’s” in that second paragraph, which means to me that i deff need to sit at the Lord’s feet and hear from Him.
