October's halfway over?!?

It's amazing how quickly days are passing! Time goes at a more steady pace each day though. For the most part, I'm not complaining. Socially, a nice steady pace through the semester is welcome...Educationally, I'm just ready to get done with these classes and get movin! It's been crazy cuz I've really been learning how to manage my time with things that need to get done now, but also in preparing for things in the next semester, this coming summer, next year, and even next summer! It's crazy that all this planning needs to take place now, but I'm sooo unexplainably excited to see if these plans pull through!

Part of me wants to just spew out all the details of my excited thoughts, but I can't, it'd be hasty to start talking like I'm sure that all these dreams are soon to become a reality. Through all of this God has been making me smile each day. I just love love love being his and following him as he teaches me new things.
Presently, I'm learning how to wait on Him, to be a good steward of my time, and to commit my plans and relationships to him. It's great! You don't normally hear people say that letting someone else rule their lives is the best thing that ever happened to them...but let me be the first. :) Serving God is the best thing I've ever chosen for my life. It's basically grown to an addiction! Haha, but one that makes me healthier than ever.

I was hopin to get some shots up here from October so far, but for some reason blogger's not letting me. Booo. Oh well, next time, next time! Happy weekend!!!!!!!

great post..... Even though it lacks pictures. I too think letting God take over my life is the best thing that has happened since creation.

I went for a walk today and talked with God and I said, "How is it that I'm serving you? Is there something more I can be doing?"

Sometimes it's hard to know... Let me know if you have any advice!

hey sarah! i'd check up on Gary Fong's blog for updates on the CMBS crisis. he's following how it effects the housing market more than anyone i know.

I'm not too concerned with the residential market because my house is a "home" not an investment vehicle i'm trying to make money with.

I watch the commercial market mostly through Wall St. Journal and other online resources.

it will be an interesting couple years!

I met with a banker today and talked about business accounts<--plural!...see, I have an idea too, that I don't want to be hasty about either! One, it's way scary (and exciting!!) to have such a big idea, and two, sometimes it takes patience to see if that's what God is really calling us to do... And I'm finding more and more, just as you said, it's so great to give up control... because then we don't have to worry about it! For the past year on my Facebook profile, I've had this:
"I enjoy day dreaming. Big dreams about the photography thing... but we'll have to wait and see how God uses me. His plans usually end up being bigger than mine."

Good luck, Sarah!
