Good morning Starshine...

...the earth says HELLO!

Ok Ok so I CAN'T stop saying that! Every since last weekend! It was great too I got a bunch of the kids that went on the retreat this weekend saying it! Speaking of the retreat it was great, such a good time to connect with some of those "over zealous" teenagers that don't usually sit still for 5 minutes. It was good to in the way I encountered God, not in the "typical" sense of the word. I mean there was not a dramatic moment where I was eleviated from all that has been burdening me over the past semester or anything like that but it was great to just spend time talking about God and rembering what it was like to be on the "faith journey" even though I never walked off it. It's all one big journey. This semester was soo hard, I held back more tears than I can ever imagine and I actually held it in and told no one, why? I couldnt' put it into words...I had a hard heart. I finally understood what that was, as soon as I finally admitted to myself and then started to to others that this was what was going on i began the journey back up the mountain *for all those "Hinds Feet" Girls* and I'm slooooooooooowwwwwwwwwllllly rising but there is nothing wrong with that. It's all part of the Journey...and I'm taking it with God.

It was nice cuz the weekend was spent on Seymour Mountain, not quite at the snowhill but about three quarters up and it was great...we woke up sunday morning to snow! AND it's suppose to snow here tonight! But alas I dont want to get my hopes up, it may not snow and if it does it WON'T last.

"You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw you face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you."
*sigh* James Blunt, saying it like it is

Megs, I am so happy to read that post! You are right - it is part of the journey. Remember how she had to face the valley of despair (that was it right? I haven't read that for like 3 years or more but I LOVED it) - it was a necessary part of the journey. I will be praying for you. Let me know if you want to talk some time. I wish I could let you cry on my shoulder if you needed to... but the most I can offer, due to the physical limitations of distance, is my ear - which I whole-heartely offer at any time you should want it.
I love you forever and ever.
