I wrote this entry on my phone while I was heading to get on yet another ship. I hope you get it.
I just looked at my watch and realized that 49 weeks ago I had finished my first week of bible school. For me rio vida is the changing point. It's either before or after my time there.
This year has not been easy. It's been on of the harder ones of my life. I've felt isolated rejected unloved and unwanted. Anger has reared it's ugly head and defeated has played its own little part. But I can truly say that Jesus has truly made my life bearable. He has been with me throught it all, made the obvious difference in my day. He has given me great and loving friends and love. I know that even if I feel like I am the only one in the world I'm not really, Jesus is here with me.
I have no clue what 2012 will bring. I have no plans for it… just things I'm considering at this moment. Like getting credentialed or tefl or even moving out. Maybe I'll do more traveling scratch that I know I'm doing that (sc first weekend in the year, Canada in the spring!). Life will go on for me. I'll go to some weddings, birthday parties, probably have some crazy adventures and it all won't be great but I will do it all serving God and loving on the people around me. This year will be about loving you. I am going to be better about that.
So as the year changes I hope that this year will be be great because you are loved.
You know you are.
