Travels Part I


Hello World!
Man oh Man. It seems like it's been a long time since I've written a blog. I got too used to churning out captivating stories every week... Wonder how many people are sticking with me now that my life is horribly boring? I promise exciting, noteworthy things are coming! I'm just not quite sure when, but that's pretty exciting in itself isn't it? Okay, maybe just for me...

I am currently in Arlington, Virginia.
I had gone back and forth about traveling a little bit after I had settled in Orange, my bank account is really upset with me right now, but I do believe that this trip is worth it. I am young, and I may never have an opportunity like this again... I tell myself that for all the crazy things I do though.

I have some family who live just a few minutes from D.C and coincidently the US Campaign for Burma was having a conference so it was like hitting two birds with one stone! Also, I think that I needed some time away from what I had become comfortable to (the CA life)... I needed some time of quite and solitude.

My Uncle and Aunt both work full time, so I was left with a lot of time on my hands to do whatever I wanted. I spent a lot of time walking, sightseeing, photographing, and thinking. It was exactly what I needed. I've had a lot of revelation and renewed purpose for where I'm going and how to get there. I am really excited to share with you about what my plans are, but I believe it would be wise for me to wait a while and solidify where I believe the Lord is leading me before spewing it to the world. Until then... enjoy these photos from the past week!

So Chilly at the Washington monument!

Just in time for the blooming cherry blossoms :)

We biked 26 miles through Arlington, Alexandra, and into D.C.
Kid's play for him... leg numbing for me.

Thanks for Reading! Keep an eye out for part two from Dallas/Denton/Decatur, Texas!

So glad to hear what God's doing. Your transparency in these blogs is awesome--Really a gift! Definitely encouraging and interesting--a very good model. Hope to emulate it some day, though, not sure I'll ever be quite as transparent. It's not easy.

One more thought...
Transitions are difficult & sometimes longer than expected, but God teaches tons through them! At least, that's my experience.

God bless
