Becoming Updated

Well, it has been over a month. I have been at REI for almost 2 months now and some awesome things have been going on there. I have had some fabulous conversations with co-workers about the Lord. AND...I never initiated a single one. One co-worker, Alex, is really searching for truth. I got to giver her a Bible...the first Bible she has ever had. It was awesome and she was so excited.

But, retail is hard and not my cup of tea. I love what the Lord is doing there but I don't like retail. If you are going to be in retail, REI is for sure the place to be, it's just not what makes me come alive. I decided it's because I don't have much patience with people that get so upset over material things. They can't find the right size in the brown northface so they throw a hissy fit. I just want to shake them and remind them that there are more important things in life to worry about. Geeze! But enough ranting.

I had two interviews this last week, both for girls' ministry positions. I feel really good about one of those...the other I can't figure out. But, I am excited to see what God does. December 28th will be my last day at REI so hopefully one of these other jobs will come through. If not, it will be ok. God is good.

I really miss my College Station friends (the ones that are still there and the ones that are not). I miss Breakaway and Coffee Station. I miss Walton street. I miss being able to get anywhere in 10 minutes or less. I miss Living Hope. But I also love my new friends. I love HFBC and the Lighthouse class. I love that I get to sing here. I love the community. I love that I have free rent.

Overall,life is great. Some things are hard. Somethings are hard but improving. But most things are great. ...because God is good.
