Prayer request...

I'm leaving for Chicago tomorrow, and prayers would be GREATLY appreciated. I'm pretty nervous, as I am terrified of flying, so if you could pray for peace of mind and a safe flight, I would be very grateful.

Thanks, everyone!

What a beautiful Lord's day this has been!

...Other than the fact that it was 103 degrees. *dies of heat*

But even so, it was just a really peaceful day for me. And I love how all my physical and mental pain just melts away when I'm in the presence of the Lord and His followers. Even when I am nauseated from stomach contractions and back pain, it just doesn't matter any more! It's the most amazing feeling. Yes, I'm aware of discomfort, but it seems so far away, like my spirit is separated from my body. What an amazing experience! I hope everyone is having an equally pleasant Sunday. :)

And on a slightly different note, I'm going to be at Nashotah House for a few days next week (Tuesday-Saturday), and I'm stopping by the Chicago Art Institute while I'm there. Anyone want me to bring them anything? :D Anyway, be good while I'm gone, and don't miss me too much!

Peace of Christ be with you always,

Dealing with jealousy

Recently, I've been dealing a LOT with jealousy and wishing I was at a different stage of my life.

Sometimes I'll think "Wow, God, you've really given me more than I ever deserve, and you've helped me to not be envious of others and what they have." And then, I'll see a young mother holding a baby, with a toddler or two clinging to her skirts, and I'll just about lose it. "God, why can't I just skip the next five years of my life and be stable, married, and have two or three kids? That's all I want right now. Just give me people I can love and who love me, and I'll be happy and do everything You ask."

If anyone has any advice on dealing with this kind of thing, please don't hesitate to share it with me. :)

Peace of Christ be with you always,

My new blog!

Yep, this is it. :) I would write a long and poetic introduction post, but it is late, and I have a violin lesson tomorrow morning. *yawn*
