The month of May

I am overwhelmed by the goodness, the shear immenseness of God's love! A good friend recently suggested I should continuously look back. Not in a regretful way, no, as a way of introspection and thanksgiving. I have been told multiple times that I am a summarizer. After years of trying my hand at story writing and poetry as a young girl I have come to grips with the painful fact... I am a fact and to the point person who is just too analytical for short stories and not patient enough to write poetry.
Here is my summary of what has happened the last month. Take it or leave it... It's how I am :)

1. God provided a car and also a brother who is willing to teach me how to drive a stick w/o yelling hysterically when I stall!

2. God has given me many opportunities to speak about my int'l student friends w/ many listening and generous ears. They pray and give on behalf of the world in our back yard.

3. I have been able to develop friendships with people at my church that I treasure and that are amazingly sweet and giving people. One kind gentleman keeps making sure I have ample gas in my car by providing gas cards.

4. I have been given a love of musical worship, lifting my voice in song. Because of that God has given me the chance to be involved in the worship team at church. I love it and will miss it when I move to Lafayette.

5. I have been given many opportunities to speak w/ int'l students about the hope of Jesus.

6. I have been given a part time job at Old Navy where I can be an example of Jesus to those I work with. (I also get a great discount).

I love you all and am so grateful for your prayers and encouragement. Love-Bethany
