First of all, I have an update for you all. My friend Scott is home from the hospital and recovering! Thanks for all your prayers!
Second, I’ve been feeling some turbulence lately. I miss New England, I miss my family and friends, I have friends here but it’s different somehow. People don’t really reach out to each other here. It’s lonely. I still haven’t been able to find a job. I am looking at going back to school for a few classes next semester, just to open the door for grad school, and I am also applying to an internship to get experience in a whole new field that’s always interested me but I’ve never thought of pursuing before. Meanwhile, my roommate’s aide, who has never talked to me about my life and knows nothing about what I’ve been up to here, takes it upon himself to tell me I’m not getting any younger and I need to stop being so ‘lazy’. I wonder, if he saw how many sent emails I have with my resume and how many cover letters I’ve written, if he’d still think I was lazy! In the midst of all that, it’s been difficult for me to find my focus.
This song reminds me that no matter what is going on in my life, it’s temporary. Christ isn’t. Stand on God, stand on the rock, and you stand on solid and safe ground no matter what turbulence is swirling around you. Amen!
