I was about an hour late to work today, but it turned out okay.
I have mapped out the rest of my summer. I’ll write it in here. Let’s see if it goes as planned:
I will work the next couple of weeks every day except for Tuesdays and Sundays. Then on July 12th, I’ll leave for Fishnet ’95. I will return on the 16th, leaving for Deep Creek on the 17th. We will come back on the 22nd, a Saturday, in time for church on the following day. From the 24th of July until the 3rd of August, I’ll work every day except for Sunday. And on the weekend of August 4th, I plan to visit Emily in Florida. I’m not sure when I’ll return, but I spend the remainder of that time getting ready for my sophomore year at Lees-McRae College.
Fifty-four days remain until I return to my world. I pray that this is the last summer I spend here. The Lord is preparing my heart to return to Banner Elk. I learned so much at church tonight.
Philippians 3:13 says, “…forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.”
The past needs to be forgotten.
Only now and the future exist.
I went for a walk on the railroad tracks after church tonight. There was lightening in the air, lightning bugs all around, and light in my heart.
You are changing me Lord!
