i thought i’d give Xanga some lovin tonight.
Hmm. what can i say?
Well, I think I had a pretty good weekend. I spent every day at church. On Friday I met to plan the script for the Christmas play. Although it scares me that it’s almost the end of October and we have yet to solidify a script, I definitely have to put my faith in God that this one’s gonna work out.
Oh my goodness. I can hear the rain. Praise the Lord!
Anyways, after that, I helped out the Jr. Youth kids with worship practice. Then we watched Paranormal Activity 4. It was alright… It definitely played with my nerves, but all the real scary stuff happened at the end. I still like the 3rd one best.
On Saturday The GCS had an Open House/ Alumni Homecoming event, so I got to sing and play for that, which was fun. I got to see some old friends and sing songs that take me back to those days. Not gonna lie, I’m not sure what it was, but i kinda think that i got a little flustered at the sight of this particular old friend. But whatever. I even evaded a crucial question. Anyways.
After that, I went to a family party. It was nice, cuz it’s family that we’re not really close to, but I definitely felt at home when I was there. I even got to see classmates from elementary school. So hopefully I get to see more friends from the past.
Today was worship Sunday, and i got to lead. I’m really glad that I didn’t get into some conversations the night before that I know I shouldn’t have. I really praise God for keeping me out of that one, even though it could’ve easily happened. I really hate that I get myself into things like that, and it can all be easily avoided if i just stay away.. so i’m gonna work on that this week…
Anyways, the service was really good, I really got the sense that the congregation really needed to spend some extra time savoring God’s spirit, so I tried to help make that happen. There were other special song performances, and I was really blessed by that too!
After that, I got to go to my Ate’s daughter’s 1st birthday. It blows my mind how time flies by so fast. Again, I got to see lots of people I haven’t seen in a while, which was good. I really like that God made that happen this weekend, and I definitely hope that it’ll continue to happen.
Now I’m in SJ. I had my meeting, and I did some homework, so now i’m ready to unwind and get ready for bed. I think i’m gonna work on the Christmas play script while i go to sleep.
Anyways, this week, i’m really focusing on not communicating with certain people, and I’m gonna stick to it. It’s really what I should’ve been doing all along. But for now, i’m gonna focus on taking those baby steps, one bite at a time kinda stuff.
There is definitely power in worship and spending time in God’s presence.
How’s my heart?
The first word that popped into my head was “open.” Maybe more in a good way this time. Because I catch myself having an open heart in the way of not caring what i let in. I let things slip, like saying the occasional “i miss you..” or letting my heart get carried away, even if it’s only a little bit. those little bits lead up to a lot more. even if i think that it’s harmless. it’s really not.
well. this week is a new week. it’s gonna be a good one. i’m excited to see what God has in store for me.
