But I have been EXTREMELY stressed.
The honeymoon period is LONG gone with my job.
(Only took 6 months. That is pretty good!)
There is SO MUCH to do I just don't know WHERE to START!
I am overwhelmed, and tired.
And I am doing my very very best not to be cranky.
Or short tempered.
That is not a mood that shows Christ's love at all.
I have had to pray extra hard for a guard to be placed over my words and emotions.
And I have not enjoyed that feeling at all.
Teaching is stressful.
But that is not why I am writing. (I mean I guess... sorta... but not really...)
But you know what?
God saw that I was stressed.
And he is amazing.
You know that?
He is simply amazing.
He sent us a rain shower.
A storm really.
It was a GREAT storm!
All good stuff!
And on the way home there was this car RIGHT behind me.
And it actually ended up doing a complete 360 turn.
And God protected us both.
I was at star bucks when a friend showed up.
We ended up dancing in the rain.
She and I just went for it.
Yes it was still hailing a little.
But you know what?
That stress that has been building up...
It was gone.
As the rain poured over me...
The grouchiness and stressed outedness washed away too.
I have not felt this good in SO long.
God I think created rain for lots and lots of reasons.
One being for us to just enjoy and be free a little.
Dancing in the rain is so innocent.
You feel young and free.
And you cannot help but laugh and just... TWIRL!!!
Christina and I just had so much fun.
Like so much fun!
It was very cold.
The hail hurt a little.
But it was SO well needed!
God watches out for me in so many ways.
I cannot thank him enough for all that he does for me.
All that he blesses me with.
Sometimes I wonder what life would be like as not a teacher.
But I just know that for this period of my life... this is where God has called me... and he is going to make sure everything goes according to his plan.
I just can't forget his word.
I cannot forget his love, his grace, his blessings.
I cannot forget to show his unconditional love... even when vastly annoyed. And to do that... I need solely God.
Is he a good God.
Have a great night. It is WAY past my bedtime!!! :D
