tender mercies

So maybe the last blog was a little too personal and soul-baring. I don't know. I never know with such things. I like reading stuff like that about other people, but I don't even share stuff like that in person with most people. I usually just keep things to myself. But. Who knows. Maybe it will be a new trend. Soul-baring through blogging.

Or maybe I'll just go back to writing about silly things. I guess we'll see where my whims take me.

But I did feel the need to share something with regards to yesterday's blog. I posted it on blogger and then I posted a link to it on Facebook (with some sort of reference to how I sounded super emo), and then I went to check my email. There was one new email, and as I opened it, my eyes filled with tears. An acceptance letter to the Master of Counseling program.

Now I still don't know a lot of things about where my life is going. There are still a lot of unknowns and I still feel a lot of confusion about things. But yesterday Heavenly Father gave me one very big hint that He is thinking about me. That He loves me. Would that still be true if I hadn't gotten that email? Certainly. He gives me evidence all the time of that. But yesterday I felt overwhelmed by His love.

Not to mention the fact that in the past few days I've received numerous phone calls and emails from people I don't talk to on a regular basis who (I believe) felt impressed to share things with me about their situations that are or were so similar to what I am going through. And they didn't even know.

Heavenly Father does love us, and He is watching out for us.

Sparky, I love you! I can't wait to see you again. I don't know when, but let's make it happen.

You're so sweet. It's only too personal if you think it is. I, for one, didn't think it was at all. But then again, maybe I share too much on my blog? :) who knows. Do it for you, no one else, and you can't go wrong

They need to put a "Like" button on Blogger! This was a Masterpiece.
