At the moment I am sitting in my room, wearing my softest of sweatpants, listening to the tuba music being practiced on the floor above, having just finished watching/listening to the first presidential debate (here) and studying for my German and Marriage and Family midterms coming up this week…a little look into my past weekend is as follows!
This past weekend was a jumble of achievements, anniversaries, double dates and cozy clothes.
And this week brings midterms, papers, work, job interviews and Fall Break.
Justin’s Fall Pumpkin – ‘Gerald’
A double date with some lovely friends, on which we discovered a grand park and christened it to be ‘Atlantis’.
A double date with my wonderful sister and brother-in-law, during which I was able to acquire some new lovely clothes, and be entertained by their crazy feline named Gus.
Tonight I discovered that I have a much too large stock of Peanut Butter, and that I don’t even like Peanut Butter that much….though that opinion is possibly due to how much of a staple it has been in my diet for the past few weeks….
And finally I can say with, nearly full, confidence,
Happy Autumn! The weather is finally catching up to the correct season and the brisk air is settling in!!
To close, I give you Psalm 100, and challenge you to just sit and really trust in how unchanging God is, how entirely unlike humanity He is, and how He desires peace and joy for His people, just quietly know that…because too often we forget it, or pull those attributes away from God because we can’t seem to wrap our minds around it and so believe that it can’t possibly be true.
Too often attributes of God are ripped away from His character in our own minds, just because we can’t fully understand the consistent presence of them.
So instead of thinking and trying to understand Him, just stop and with assurance rest in Him.
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his[a];
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
