dear my beloved one,
happy december! and what a wonderful way to kick off the last month of twenty ten... by waking up at the crack of dawn (five am) and hitting the gym. although i feel more awake, my eyes still have a thin film over them i think and my glasses are useless. perhaps my eyes are just getting worse by the minute, which in that case would be very bad for the both of us.
the past few days have been a whirlwind of learning i.e. clarity and a little creeper i.e. man who steals possessions at laundry mats.
my lack of clarity in the visual sense does not coincide with my gain of clarity in both my heart and my head. there are details i will not discuss, but my heart has been both saddened and joyed all in one fail swoop. granted, i firmly believe in the power of love and grace the Father gives me and i should enjoy every moment i am with Him.
so i have a bible verse for you today:
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be open to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."- Matthew 7:7
the Lord is ever promising, and those promises do not fall short when it comes to you. i have prayed and continue to pray for you, my beloved, that you will seek the Father and love Him and He loves us.
alas, i want to tell you about the rest of my week! the roomies and i have begun our christmas decorations, which are still in progress due to finals and my lack of attention span. but we will have all the festive items up and ready for our tacky christmas sweater party next weekend. there will definitely be some pictures posted for sure. i stopped by savers on the way home yesterday and got some decorations for a little surprise we're having at the party (hint hint: white sheet).
yesterday was lovely with the exception of work lasting an extra hour, but that was expected. kaki is now obsessed with gilmore girls, thanks to emily, and since em has all seven season, i think this christmas will be filled watching all seven of them. :)
speaking of creeper.... after i had relaxed for the evening catching up on glee! (sue sylvester is somewhat of my t.v. hero), i braved the ridiculously cold weather and hopped on over to the laundry mat. since i have a trained eye, i noticed a creeper about the time my clothes hit the dryer. he seriously kept staring at my purse and phone as they rested by side me. i minded my work (reading the history of redemption) but then realized i should pack up and get the hell outta dodge. so i did. and then come to find out, he stole a girls wallet and phone. needless to say, creeper. he probably stole my bike to. haters.
i digress. there is still alot to come about my life here in austin, tx and i am so happy to share it with you. i can't wait to meet you.
