I should be...

...sleeping! It's 11:20pm and tomorrow comes early, but I just can't seem to fall asleep. So here I am reflecting on the day. Time is precious, but when you're alone other things seem to just take the lead, like friendships. With so many things still left to do before next week, you'd think I'd spend every chance I get in my room preparing...no, not today...there was something more important...getting to know new friends and taking time out to fellowship and talk about life. That was huge today! Rachel, Alison, and I went out to a very extended lunch with Laura and Mekeio. Laura is the 4th grade teacher and Mekeio teaches English for all students in 6-12 grades. They are both military wives and just as grateful as we are to have the other. We went to this yummy place called the Transit Cafe overlooking the water. I learned a lot about what this next year will be like and at the same time laughed ridiculously. We decided they are just about as normal as we are! hehe It was so great to talk and have some fabulous English conversation! On another high note, Alison and I got internet in our apartment today. Then it broke, so the guy came back again to fix it...now we're all good! lol It feels so much more like home to be able to sit on my bed and type...to you all of course!
I will leave you with this verse, my prayer... Colossians 1:10-12..."We pray this is order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father..."
Goodnight! (or good morning I suppose)


  1. So glad the Lord has answered one of your prayers... a couple of new buddies that you can be "real" with! I will continue to pray that all the other "desires of your heart" will be given to you as "commit your way to Him."Also wanted to say that I finished reading your blog a while ago but was just sitting here enjoying listening to your music while I occasionally chase Caiden away from the "no-no" objects on the floor... I love your choices! They're peaceful and encouraging as I start my morning..so thanks! Have a great day 2... or is it 3? :)

  2. well i wrote this huge long letter with emotion and sarcasm, and then i LOST IT!!!!!!!!!!! aaaahhhhhhh, well anyway I enjoy reading your blogs and seeing all your cool pictures!! I'm super proud of all you're doing, and really happy for you... I'll continue following you throughout the year and look forward to all the exciting new things you'll be experiencing! Yay You!! :)

  3. This is something quite random...you mentioned Colossians...our school's verse for the year (chosen by the principal)...is Colossians 3:12...read it...it'll make you chuckle when you think of my school I think...and how AWESOME our principal is to choose such a fitting verse. =) It's lunch time for you now...eat some mochi balls for me. =)
