I Know and I Don’t–No. 16

     Bleh…I forgot again last week.  Clearly I need to quit setting myself up for failure and just post when I remember.  It’s been a whirlwind few weeks.

I  know
I’m going to be  teacher.
I don’t know
why summer programs are so vastly different from the school year.

I know
I shouldn’t take Ibuprofen every day.
I don’t know why I’ve had a headache on the top of my head every day this week.

I know
I shouldn’t wish away my summer.
I don’t know see how summer is passing me by so quickly!

I know
prayer works.
I don’t know why it doesn’t always work the way I expect (…lie.  I know why, and I really would rather it be God’s answers than my lame ideas).

I know
I should quit saying I want to do something or that I’m planning something, blah blah blah.
I don’t know why I don’t just go do all of these things.

I know
I’m getting married in 380 days!
I don’t know when that’s really going to hit me.

I know
it’s summer.
I don’t know why my face is so dry!

I know
my life is going to work out.
I don’t know why I can’t have everything planned now…

I know
red is my signature polish color for my toes.
I don’t know why it is looking dingier so fast these days!

I know
I really should decide what I want my wedding flowers to look like.
I don’t know how to pick something that will provide lots of options for mothers and grandmothers and attendants to coordinate!

     That’s that for now.  How are we almost a week into June?!  I am seriously astonished with how fast this year is going.  If this is any indication of how the next twelve months are going to go, then we are in for a wild ride.  I’m all kinds of excited to student teach and graduate and plan a wedding and get married and find a place to live and get a job, but that is a lot to do in a year – wow. 
     The past year has been a huge learning experience for me.  Every situation I have found myself in has been a gigantic, blinking lesson from God saying, “Let go.  Rely on me.  I mean it…let go.  You can’t do this.  I can.”  I have to remember this every single day…it’s not always easy, but I’m really working on it.


This is where my brain is now...not so much the boats, but definitely the beach.

I've had that same weird headache too! I think I've figured out that mine is a sinus headache even though I'm not having any other sinus type symptoms. I was taking Ibuprofen every day too and Claritin D actually helped me more. Hope you're having a good week!
