Hey, friends! How's life? My life has been kinda crazy and stressful and overwhelming, but somehow very sweet ... if that makes sense. *winks*
~ I think I'm growing closer to my Lord. <3
"Thou hast made us for Thyself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee." - St. Augustine
~ Some of my relatives came for a visit, and it was a very wonderful time! I'm so glad they were able to come down and spend time with my family and I! ^_^
Late night talks with the older cousins ... and snuggles with the little ones. <3
~ My family finally moved into our new house! It was a LOT of work remodeling it, but now it feels so satisfying and lovely to be living in it!
I have a bookshelf again now! I love my new room. *smiles*
~ Coloring, jotting down positive thoughts, and just spending quiet time with Jesus ...
~ I went in for a job interview yesterday. I didn't end up getting the job, but I had a good time talking to the lovely ladies who interviewed me for the library position.
And there were some other special things about that day. It started out as one of my "down days", but I was able to try out a cute, old-fashioned restaurant (ordered chicken/bacon salad with honey mustard dressing, and my favorite drink - lemonade mixed with unsweetened tea!) and spent the ride home in a peaceful time of prayer and praise!
~ My older brother is on his way here to visit!! <3333 I haven't seen him since January, and I'm so excited to give him a hug and catch up!
~ Family reunion is coming up ... can't wait to see all the fam!
~ Today I went to an Amish store and bought eggs. Then stopped by another store and bought chocolate, haha. And after getting home, one of my sisters and I set to painting shutters. Fun stuff!
~ I recently received a review copy of Many Sparrows by Lori Benton in the mail! Looking forward to reading it!
~ In case you missed it, I finally filmed another video for my Youtube channel! June/July Book Haul and Wrap Up.
~ I've been writing again! ^_^ Worked a little on Silver Rose, started another story, and wrote a couple poems of sorts.
Well, there's a quick update. What are you reading? How's summer going for you?
