So. (i begin alot of sentences with so. weird) i had determined to start the Radical Bible reading plan, which follows the Bible chronologically through the year, at the beginning of this year. and then things happened, which isn't an excuse, but things happened. i thought i would be able to catch up, but that is looking like it won't happen. so starting tomorrow, Jan. 31, i will begin the reading plan. i'm still trying to determine if i should read in the morning or night, but i think just reading will work for now.
in other news. God is so freakin incredible. i had some amazing conversations with people this weekend, and so major things happened for me personally. i don't really think i'm going to share them over the internet, i'm not that open, but just know that God works in marvelous and mysterious and wonderful ways.
and finally. this morning i subbed in at the nursery at my church. 8 one year olds. all crying. (made me glad im not a mom, at least not now). i love children, thats where my heart lies, but at one point just looking at the room had me dying laughing because everything was so crazy. i was sort of complaining to someone about it later before the service, and he just said that it was preparation for Guatemala. i hadn't even thought about that. we will be working with orphans while in Antigua, and this craziness is most likely very similar to what we'll see in Guatemala. but what if everything in life was preparation for something else. crazy to think right. but because God has so orchestrated this world and my life, everything has a purpose.
i really enjoy reading. like really. but i also enjoy remembering little details from the beginning of the book that have a monumental change on the ending of the book. little characters who have a huge impact, all that stuff is incredible to me. just to think that an author would have paid that much attention to little things in the beginning. God is the Author of our lives (total cliche i know). but i love thinking about what little moments and sermons and people who cross my path could have a huge impact later. and also vice versa. what impact could i have on people for the Glory of the Lord.
Again, just thinking about the eternal. scary cool.
