the one with a breath

today (/tonight/five minutes ago), ive had some time to reflect. and it feels good. today/tonight/this week/recently, im beginning to feel settled. much more settled than i have in the past year. this makes alot of sense if i think about it...while most of the time i havent felt chaotic or out of control, it's been a crazy year. quick recap?
june 2010 - go to ethiopia for 3 weeks

july - august - deep discussion & prayer for both rob & i about whether we want to take the next step and get married... thankful for the Lord's goodness in those days but my stomach still churns to think about the emotional roller coaster.
 not pictured :)

septermber - get engaged/on cloud 9.

october - december - plan a wedding. quickly. while working fulltime and right smack dab in the middle of the holiday season.

january - get married to my best friend

february - july - learn to live with a boy, get settled in our new apartment, learn how to love each other well (totally got it perfectly figured out now... definitely), spend lots of time together because we are newlyweds, adjust to my new job & role at work, etc etc
 and here i am! i feel like i can breathe a little more and that maybe im not quite right in the middle of a big transition. it's really refreshing!

i would be remiss if i didn't mention the Lord's faithfulness through every season of my life...including the many seasons combined in the last year :) the Lord is my rock, my fortress, my comfort, and horn of my salvation. He is my portion. the lines have fallen for me in pleasant places - indeed i have a rich inheritance. i will rejoice and be glad for the Lord has done great things.

and while i have some time to breathe, maybe ill focus on a few new things:
1. more reading (less computer browsing, less tv watching)
2. quit whining and get out of bed in the morning
3. go to dinner with our next door neighbor, pam, who has come to summit a couple times.
4. one last tanning session at the pool (i am a keegan, after all :) )
