This weekend was wonderful. Travis, Emma and I got a chance to do nothing. In our home/life we have to schedule ‘nothing’. Our day to day is filled with people, work, church, meetings, worship practices and many other things that fill in the cracks. And as a whole Travis and I are pretty social. We LOVE having people over and hanging and talking with them. We’ve been entertaining a lot recently and this weekend was just the rejuvenating we needed. We watched tons of HGTV, I baked a lot (fun!) and Emma rolled from one side of the room to the other. (Yesterday she was really snugly- :)) We even went out after church with a friend to Rocky Bute in Portland and looked out at all the lights. (Pictures turned out horrible)
Great weekend-the sun was out, I was with family and I even got to take some cool pictures of my jewelry. (Shameless Promoting) In order of appearance: ‘Wrapped Wire’, ‘Champagne
On a more serious note, I was in bed not sleeping- which is super frustrating- and all I could think of were tons of questions and crazy feelings. As many of you know- Travis, Emma and I are moving to Krakow, Poland. Why? Check it out here. Anyways, have you ever asked God to ‘Just show me now God!’ but he chooses for you to wait and see? Yeah…be happy about that. God has told us we’re moving to Krakow and have had years to plan, worry, get excited and store many feelings inside. Sometimes it’s easier when you just don’t know. I am also the kind of person who thinks and analyses things- so I have detail questions which can’t be answered. It’s like…I see the destination God wants us to be, just not the how-to’s. It can be stressful- process after process. Different people thinking, with your best at heart, that ‘this’ way is the way you should go… and then even more questions arise..and so forth.
It’s kinda like God showing you that you’ll get married in two years and to ‘this’ person…it just hasn’t happened yet. Nerves, excitement, more nerves and questions swarm your head. When it actually happens will it be as glorious as you thought it would be?
Just some insights into my mind…this goes on about every hour or so…I create to escape.
I totally know what you mean about seeing the ending but the steps are all fuzzy, or completely covered in darkness. Been there, felt that.
just letting you know you aren't the only one loosing sleep over questions like yours.
Alexis, your jewelry is so beautiful. I would really buy you out if I had the funds! I just love the first earings (Wraped Wire) You are so creative!
God is giving you a great adventure. How exciting would it be if you knew every minute detail? It wouldn’t…it would become mundane and you wouldn’t get to see the great blessings and miracles that come with it. Hold on for the ride of your life!
~this is what God is teaching me through my great adventure…thought I would share the fun!~
