remember this quote from my tea bottle?...
"To dare is to loose one's footing momentarily.
Not to dare is to loose oneself"
-Soren Kierkeguard
and when I said..."more on that later"?
well. it's later.
That quotes not exact. But it's pretty fitting. It has been an interesting time in Tys and I's life lately. Suddenly we feel as if we are being stretched and pushed and molded into something better... and that it's time to spread our wings a little bit. We've been presented with three different options for internship opportunities this summer, however none of which are completely concrete offers. With only three weeks of school left, we've never felt so unsure and last minute about our "plan" before. {we're BIG planners} It has been a step into the dark to trust in the Lord and know that He will provide and answer with the perfect solution for our best interests in His own time. {It's a little bit scary...but it does feel good to just trust} Also, during the week I was in San Francisco, Tys was blessed through several different occasions to experience a little bit of what we'll call...a "heart attack". Saturday night he called me to tell me about his week and his thoughts and how his feelings had started to change on different things. Listening to him, I have to say I was honestly a little surprised that his perspective was so different from just one week. But I was so happy I started to cry a little bit after I got off the phone with him. {Thanks roomies for the hugs} Then one of the coolest things ever happened. I was laying in bed and suddenly this thought popped into my head: a perfect answer to a question that Tys and I had been having lately...you know, one of those light-bulb moments {although I'm pretty sure it didn't come from me}. Literally 2 seconds later, my phone is ringing with Tys on the other end telling me that he had realized the exact same thing at the same time. {it was completely awesome cause we've never had that happen before}
So anyways. Since we've been experiencing these little "stretches", we've been so happy. And the comfort and closeness we've experienced from reading the scriptures and praying together about several of the next steps in our lives has been an incredible blessing. We are learning what it means to live by faith.
And it feels good.
