Wednesday, February 2, 2011

My dear friend, Amanda, sent me a prayer journal for my birthday. (She’s always doing unbelievably thoughtful and caring things.)  I have actually been meaning to start one for some time, so I’m excited to begin.  I’m always very honest in my postings on the blog, but there are still some things that I can’t talk about.    Things that worry me immensely. . .things that I need to ask God to take care of.  Some days it seems there are burdens too heavy to bear on my shoulders alone.  So, I look forward to seeing God work in my life and look back at the prayers He has answered.

In other news, I have a high school band reunion on Saturday.  I’ve never gone to any of my high school reunions.  About 90% of my friends were in band which meant they weren’t necessarily in my grade.  (I played the flute and bassoon for those who didn’t know.)  I will get to see many of my old friends that I haven’t seen in 15+ years. . .and I am in braces.  Great.  I guess it will be just like I’m in high school again.  LOL.  It should be quite the trip down memory lane, though, and I’m looking forward to it.

I'm laying in bed... Rodneys asleep... And I literally just laughed outloud, when you wrote ..."it's been 15 years, and I'm in braces." hahaha. Just found that funny. Not the fact that you hAve braces of course, lol, just how you wrote it. Lol. Glad you like the journal. :) you're a wonderful friend too! I need to come to Kansas!!!
