Soooo I am back in Jesup, and had a great time in Deming. Tyler had to go to several MainStreet events - MainStreet is a program that works to revitalize the downtown areas of various cities around the country. He is on the board of directors for his local MainStreet program. I went with him to some of the events this weekend - and "the press" was there, too. Lucky me, I ended up on the front page of his local newspaper this morning! Here's a link to the article and picture: http://www.demingheadlight.com/ci_11763361
Oh my goodness! I leave tomorrow. I'm not quite ready. . . gotta finish up stuff around here. . .pack. . .pack Jacob's stuff, grocery shop for Grandma, all that fun stuff. I am SO excited about going! Wednesday-Sunday. Stay tuned for lots of pics from that trip!
This hymn really helped me today. I've been trying to figure out some stuff. . .and pray repeatedly to know what to do and/or have confirmation for what I think I should do. So - today was one of those days. "What more can He say than to you He hath said?" came into my mind, and made me want to sing the whole song. I knew most of the words, but (even though I was at school) I looked up the hymn on lds.org, printed it out, and in between classes I sang all seven verses out loud to myself. I was MUCH calmer and resolved to do what I already planned on doing - what had occurred to me as I fasted, prayed, and felt two Sundays ago. I believe He had already answered my prayers and concerns, and while all is not solved, I felt that I just needed to remember what I had been told. I shared the words with my (nonmember) parapro, and while my students LOUDLY played rhythm instruments along with a kid's CD, I sang some of it to her. So - hopefully I will be able to remember how I felt today!
Wow - this is m 100th post! Lots has happened since #1 thank goodness! :) Things are amazing. . . I don't know of anything that could be better right now. . .well. . .I mean, I guess it would be awesome if I were independently wealthy and didn't have to work so I could just go ahead to Deming, but as that is not possible, I am completely content with the current situation! I can't wait. Actually - Yes, I can. (And that realization is amazing, too!) YAY!
I am extremely tired, a bit overwhelmed, unfinished with homework, unprepared for school tomorrow, a tad impatient for February 18 to arrive, but I am SOOOOOoooo happy! Now to _allow_ myself to stay that way!!!
