Finding where I am or Day One.

So, I made it safely to Minocqua! Right now I'm at the public library using their wi-fi. I haven't been in here in ages! So many memories here.
It was so weird driving here and knowing that I'm not just coming for a visit, I'm gonna be here for awhile. But so good.
I was very scared when I left home, what if I got it all wrong?
But God was good on the way.
His grace and peace did cover me. :)
I called and volunteered at the Rhinelander food pantry. We'll see how that goes.
I kind of like the whole idea of not having to work, but being able to volunteer everywhere.
Now, to continue to ask God to show why the heck I am here!
*Stop. Put a pin in it. Hang it on the wall*
I'll keep it posted.

Thoughts of el Dia...

So, you should go read 1 Timothy 1:5.
"But the purpose of the commandment is LOVE from a PURE HEART, from a GOOD CONSCIENCE and from SINCERE FAITH. "
I don't think I've ever read the 1st chapter of Timothy before. But that is a great verse. Read the whole chapter. It really reminds me of why I follow God's law, not because I am a good righteous person, but because I am sinner in need of Grace and called to share His Gospel with the world, and if I'm called to do that my light must not be dirty! Hmm, No matter how many times I've heard that, or something like that, The Holy Spirit always has a way of refreshing it in my mind when I need it. The purpose of the commandment is LOVE. How cool. And it doesn't even stop there, it goes on to tell me where the love comes from. A pure heart is a hard thing to have. It means even my thoughts. Yuck. Sometimes I hate my thoughts because they reflect the condition of my heart. Sometimes I don't like seeing my heart, Lord make it beautiful to look at! So yeah. I hope that encourages you too. So much to learn, just when you think you know everything...

# 1...

I have adorable siblings. I took them out for a day on the town. :)

# 2- I really wish fantastical things were real. I wish when I moved my fingers music would come out. I wish that the world was so full of color the way I want it. I wish we really had knights in shining armor and perilous quests. I wish that someday I will be able to risk my life for something I believe in. I wish. I wish. I wish. Also, I wish I could get away with having pink hair... but that's never gonna happen. :P

I'm thankful that walmart sells cheap kites that actually flew today. it was fun to see the kids faces. and elmo soaring far above the clouds... *sigh* oh to be a child again.
