Since we've been here, I haven't made many friends.
I mean, I know a lot of people, but I really haven't clicked with anyone just yet.
At the beginning, I didn't know what I was doing here.
My parents had things to do, but I felt like I was just along for the ride.
Most of our days were full or nothingness.
And I was literally going bonkers in the head.
Not many places to get away, and not many friends would do that to a person.
I was straying away from my time alone with God each day.
I could tell and so could everyone around me.
God's the only person who can bring true contentment.
How did it take me months to figure that out?
My circumstances haven't changed much. But my attitude sure has.
I've been spending more time with God every day, praying and lifting my thoughts to him, and reading his word first thing in the morning with a cup 'a jo.
The days fly by so much faster without dragging on and on like they used to.
And I've learned to be content with where I am right now. To be happy, joyful, and grateful.
Taking in every silent minute of it.
Loving the peace and quiet and times of reflection.
I get lots of time to exercise, bake, photograph, read, and watch movies- all the things I love to do.
I've learned to be content with my situation.
And I'm trusting God will put people in my life that I will click with.
In fact, I'm going out to coffee with a friend this afternoon.
I'm ever so thankful for the people I DO know.
