Long time, no talk.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve neglected my blog this summer. I apologize! There have been many an adventure and challenge tossed my way, and God has been ever present and powerful in each situation. His mighty right hand is still holding me close to His heart. I am incredibly grateful for my summer by the sea, but my three months in Annapolis have come to a bittersweet end. I recently heard the phrase, “It’s the people that make the place,” and I couldn’t agree more. I miss that place because of those people. But, I must praise Him and thank Him for those precious months and not dwell on the sorrowful goodbyes. Those people and experiences were great and loving gifts from Him, and I must now continue onward to the next place that He has led me. So, here I am. I have begun my LAST rotation of graduate school in Virginia Beach. He has already shown Himself to be good and gracious to me in this place. From roommates, to puppies, to well-run clinics, to solid fellowship. His goodness is unending… even with the mailman this morning–love his providential grace! I’m starting life over… again. New place, new people, new job, new ‘home’. Apparently He enjoys introducing me to new things. 😉 Although tough at times, I’m honestly thankful for all of the ‘newness’ that He brings about in my life. All of the new experiences (forced and elected) have brought about change and growth in me. Good change and growth. Doesn’t surprise me one bit that He would choose to grow me in this way… I’ve always been a ‘trial by fire’ kind of gal. 😉
He found me in Annapolis, and He will find me in Virginia Beach. He is everywhere if I open my eyes to see Him and seek Him with all of my heart.
Lots of love,
