i know

i know what you're thinking: she's blogging twice in one day. when was the last time this happened? 2003?

yeah, well, perhaps i'm reconnecting with my blog self lately. then again, any people who might have once read me have probably long since gone. oh well....

now then, i had quite a mundane day, but it was enjoyable nevertheless. did that extra shopping i needed to do at wegman's, hung out at salimah's pad for a few hours, took a nap while there (she was working), read more of my book, enjoyed lots of fresh air while tooling around town, and am thinking about doing some cooking before bed. i have some leftover fish to eat for lunch tomorrow but not much else. perhaps i'll make up a big salad and/or some cooked veggies or rice. ah yes. and i promised myself i would section up some more oranges and grapefruit.

a week ago, i let go of some anger that i'd been holding onto for many months. and while i am at peace with God that it was the right decision for me, some sadness crept into the hole it left. it's been hard to deal with that for the past few days. and some other disappointments this week have made it a bit harder to swallow.

but, the good news is that i have hope. hope to carry on in the midst of the unknown. hope that it will turn out okay. that it already has.

i'm still not sure of a lot these days. but the one thing i know is all i really need to know.

"therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. and we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. and hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us."
-romans 5:1-5
