Everything in my life seems new.  I never thought i'd become an iPhone addict, but two months in and i'm hooked.  It doesn't help that I use googlemaps for everything, everything. chick fil a, target, the grocery store.  i'm such a whiner.  or a scaredy cat.  take your pick.

being in a new city is scary.
being in a new city is exciting.

these are the two attitude options i wake up with each morning.  and depending on how many times i get lost during the day, and how loud my neighbor's surround sound was the night before, i genuinely try to exemplify the second.  i love adventure. and this is a big adventure.

sometimes though, i get scared. and lonely.  and then i remember that i'm all alone, and i can't run down the hall and have a "you'll never believe what happened today" dish session with the roomies, and i can't just run downstairs and watch episodes of the office with my baby brothers. and i stay scared.

and these are the times that my heart become unbearably grateful for a sovereign and loving God.

"There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love." 1 john 4:18

i love my God.  and he loves me.

and i love adventures.

so it's gonna be a good time.
