I know I have been MIA for some time now, but life is crazy like that, and before you know it, 2 years have slipped by and you’re blogging life has been on hold. Not anymore!
A brief catch up on my life. I am still in a leadership roll at work, and still single as a pringle. Never truly understood that expression because Pringles come in a pack. God has yet to drop my tall, dark haired man with a heart for the Lord on my doorstep, but I’m happy living my life. My poor cat Angelous passed away in October. One of the hardest experiences of my life was taking him to the vet to put him out of his pain. I held him the entire time and let him know that he was going to be okay and that I loved him. Even now, it makes me tear up. But, God has blessed me with two rambunctious kittens named Freya and Luna. They will turn one this November. Let me tell you, twins are hard, but I love them both dearly. I have finally started writing again and reading . . . Two things I have missed greatly. I think I’m still learning to find balance in my life between my job and personal life, but I am able to take personal time and not feel as guilty as I once did.
Now that I have brought you up to date, let’s talk about this world and the craziness around us. Anyone else watching the sky and listening for the trumpet call, or is that just me? I swear every time I scroll Facebook or watch the news I am astounded at all the blatant sin that is being paraded around like it’s something good. I fear for those that do not know Jesus. Let me be clear: I love everyone as Jesus loves everyone, but I cannot and will not condone sin and pretend it’s okay to practice it and still be saved. When I sin or have a sinful thought, I almost immediately feel it as being something wrong. I feel convicted and know that I did not listen to God in that moment of weakness. I used to try and explain it all away and pretend that it wasn’t that big of deal just because I told a lie. Besides, a lie to save someone’s feelings is okay . . . Right? NO. Lying is lying and it never ends well. People get hurt worse when they feel betrayed because you lied to them.
I’m not here to preach. I just want whoever reading this to know, that I love you and want you to see the love of God through me. I have learned to lean on God more since I took this new job two years ago than I ever had before. I am dedicating this blog to help anyone, but also to be a friend to those who are single and over 30. This solitary life is hard! Staying true to God while in this period of waiting is hard! But I once read a post that said choose your hard. I choose to stay faithful to God and live life the way He would want me to. If you want to follow along my crazy journey . . . Stay tuned . . . It gets better!
