Today was crazy for me but fun :)! I had rehab, then went and worked out then I went to the store, then came back and did a pool workout, and then I baked some chocolate chip cookies.
A fellow American and her kids came over for a little bit tonight. It was fun to hang out with them :)!! Then the girl who broke her foot from the other team here in Samsun invited me for a late dinner and so I ate with her and chatted with her for a few hours - was awesome being able to encourage her and just chat. She will have to get surgery on her foot though, so be praying for her!
By the time I left her apartment it was 11:00 p.m. my time. I came down and got on my computer and skyped my sisters and parents for a few minutes, then just got done phone chatting with a friend for a little bit.
So, now it is going on 1 a.m. and it is bed for me soon. Tomorrow I have rehab and will do a pool workout, and then I am headed to do a cruise on the Black Sea with an American family here for a few hours, and then I will go to their house and eat dinner.
Have a great weekend everyone!! Today marks me being over here for a month and a half - CRAZY how time flies.
“COME TO ME with your defenses down, ready to be blessed and filled with My Presence. Relax, and feel the relief of being totally open and authentic with Me. You have nothing to hide and nothing to disclose, because I know everything about you already. You can have no other relationship like this one. Take time to savor its richness, basking in My golden Light.
One of the worst consequences of the Fall is the elaborate barriers people erect between themselves and others. Facades abound in the world, even in My Body, the church. Sometimes, church is the last place where people feel free to be themselves. They cover up with Sunday clothes and Sunday smiles. They feel relief when they leave because of the strain of false fellowship. The best antidote to this artificial atmosphere is practicing My Presence at church. Let your primary focus be communing with Me, worshiping Me, glorifying Me. Then you will be able to smile at others with My Joy and love them with My Love.”
