Insert Clever title here

And insert clever text here. I've been trying to decide what to blog about today, and I decided that there isn't anything really that exciting going on. I've been a little down today, with a migraine. That's always a happy time right there. LOL!!

I have also been "catching up" with some of my old college buds on Facebook. Now, that's COOL!! Mom and I have talked about this before, but isn't it funny how you just loose contact with people you were really close to in college? People move on, get married, have families, and pretty don't have that much in common anymore. But, I have re-connected with several of my friends lately, and it is so nice to hear from them again. Of course, most of my friends are married and have babies and homes.

So, that leads to another line of thought. I KNOW that being single is the Lord's will for me right now, even though it can be hard at when my sister is having a baby, or my brother is getting married. It's hard, and it hurts....but then, I keep on thinking. One thing that has struck me recently is my relationship with my mom. We do almost everything together -- shopping, cooking, or just hanging out. I have the greatest MOM in the world. She is such a good, godly role model for me, and I love her so much. If I were married, then I couldnt' spend as much time with my mom. Memorial Day weekend, the Friday night before, we went to Appleton, WI, overnight. It was so much fun. We spent the night in a motel, just because we wanted to. Then, we went shopping all day long. It was a blast! AND....I got a whole bunch of new clothes, that I actually needed for once. LOL!!!

AND...I have a job interview IN OHIO on the 19th of this month. I'm really really excited about that!! I have been looking for a job since January, but the Lord hasn't opened up any doors in this area. It has always been in the back of my mind that I would like to work at a Christian School or church or "something like that", but I never really persued it seriously, until now, and I believe that the Lord may be about to open up a really great opportunity for me. The job is located in Cleveland, which is about 600 miles or so from where I live right now. Now, if I were married, I would not be able to persue this wonderful opportunity, so I guess maybe it's not such a bad thing after all.

Above all, though, I am 100% confident that where I am right now is God's perfect will for my life. No questions asked. Ok so maybe I doubt sometimes, or get lonely, but that is just human nature. So I just have to get out of the flesh and remember that my Heavenly Father loves me, and only wants the best for me.

Welll....thanks for listening, as it were, to my ramblings. I feel better already!! I hope you are having a great week. Be sure to keep in touch, ok???

Hey Melinda, Sounds like a wonderful opportunity is opening for you. How exciting for you. When I got my teaching degree, I wanted to teach in a public school, but God had other plans for me, and I taught in a private Christain school. I loved it there, I got to teach junior high English, and History. 5th and 6th grade history, and then 1st and 2nd grade full day. I loved my little ones. The atmosphere in the private school was so much better than public school. The parents were great. I had so much fun.

I've never had a migraine, but Dan has and usually he doesn't catch them so early to where he doesn't have to sleep it off to where it's manageable like he did the other day when we were traveling (I smiled at your comment to that post). I feel so badly for him -- his are related to blood sugar levels and being rested so he can manage them pretty well, but sometimes, one sneaks in. I know how miserable he feels so I sympathize even though I can't empathize with you.

When I read your post, it reminded me of the things that Phil 4:8 tells us to think on because that seemed to be what you were doing. I also have situations where I have to choose to think in the Phil 4:8 way in the Lord's strength in a way that goes against what's natural.

OK, I'm a total stranger who happened randomly on your blog. I just had to mention how funny it is because I live in Ohio (an hour from Cleveland), and am a Christian, teacher and stamper! Small world. I'll keep you in my prayers as you interview on the 19th. Take care!
