It was so good to see the sunshine streaming into my bedroom this morning as I woke up, realizing that I somehow managed to turn off my alarm clock during my sleep, resulting in oversleeping by almost an hour and a half. Although it was not necessary for me to get up early today, I was slightly annoyed to have slept in yet again, as I wanted to get some things done this morning.
Yesterday I discovered that bellydance classes are starting up again. I am sure I have been driving Jake crazy with constantly talking about my desire to learn how to bellydance, so I am pretty sure I am going to have to take these classes. If I don't, I know I will regret it. Bellydancing is such a great form of exercise, and since I don't enjoy lifting weights or anything else, I think I will really enjoy this.
I was really encouraged during my devotions this morning. I love it when I discover something in my Bible that I have already highlighted from reading before, but it somehow applies to my life right at this very moment. It's like a flashing neon light that catches my attention and burns God's very words into my mind. I know without a doubt that God can give me the strength I need to resist temptation, to be confident in my own convictions, and to be proactive in my pursuit of purity in all areas of my life.
I am so grateful to my family for being so supportive for me. I enjoyed being home and catching up on all I miss when I am away. I feel their love and encouragement so strongly, and I know God has blessed me with such a wonderful and loving security net to fall back on when I need to.
I should go and eat something. Today I plan on making perogies for lunch-they are so delicious!
I hope everyone has a great day!
