Paper dress I made!
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV)
For the last few days I couldn’t sleep well, thinking about fundraising for my study/service trip, as well as all the complications of saying goodbye, albeit only 4 months, yet, traveling is complicated. I finally turned in my application for a China Visa, paying 30 bucks more for the travel agent to do it for me—Thus avoiding parking, driving, LA traffic, and lines. EW. I got 2 visa photos taken at Photo Fun on Main and Garfield. Cost me 10.99. The sign said 13.99, but I said it was too expensive, I said, 10 dollars, she said in her broken Chinese “okay okay, fine fine”.
I’ve been thinking lately that I make things BIGGER than they are. I stress out about small assignments, I don’t procrastinate, and then I’m left with TIME…and then I think, if only I knew how to over-manage, I would be a little more relaxed. Sometimes thinking ahead can be a liability, not an asset.
