doing my first split shift today, so I have 2 hours before I go back in to work.
Work is work. Simply put. I do not love it, but I am constantly being reminded by the Lord that I need to hold on to hope for the future. At Saranac, Mike Kramer (the speaker) said something that I keep coming back to: If there is no hope for the future, there is no power in the present. So, I hope. I have been reading some awesome scriptures lately that are truly affirming this.
1 Thes 5:18:
Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].
For whatever was thus written in former days was written for our instruction, that by [our steadfast and patient] endurance and the encouragement [drawn] from the Scriptures we might hold fast to and cherish hope.
Anyway. Good stuff. I am hopoing for the future. Praying that waitressing is not the future.
Cool fact about the South: People from here ask me where I am from because they think I talk funny. AND...so many people here call their parents "Mommy" and "Daddy." And surprisingly, its not annoying in that baby talk way.
