Thanks for all your sweet sweet comments!!

I wasn't able to publish them until today, but I read them around the time they came in and I was so blessed!

I'm having a wonderful time here, I just don't spend any of it on the computer... I'll try to come up with at least one post before the end of October, but I won't promise anything.
Every day here is so beautiful,
it's like all those months of work and stress and trouble just melts off.
It's a wonderful feeling, though I'm not yet there that I can say with all my heart it was worth it,
cause I know I'm going back to that life in two months, and I feel the weight of it.
I shouldn't worry about what might hurt in two months time, I know,
but I have a hard time changing me, so I'll leave it to Him.
He's the only one able to work in our hearts, to change us from the inside out.
God will take care of every situation as it comes around (and He's probably already at work). I don't need to worry.
I can shrug off that awful feeling that I carry the heavy weight of my life's greater decitions
and final direction on my shoulders.
Cause really, I don't have to.
God will not only carry our troubles if we ask Him,
He'll carry us.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
It's a choice what we allow our hearts to focus on.
I will focus on this:
That whatever happens in November, December or January, God is already there.
He's at work, I needn't worry.

Dear Aslaug,

I have been reading your blog since Jewels put the link on her blog several months back. I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your blog and that you remind me a bit of my daughter (she's 16) ~smile~.

((Auslag)), please know that God is able to carry you through whatever trials you may be facing. Sometimes the road ahead can seem so dark and dreary to our eyes, but God can shine His light through the darkness and so illuminate hidden blessings amidst the trials we face. I will be praying for you, dear sister.

P.S. I love the pictures of you posted of yourself from your last post. Just sitting with the sun warming our faces can be so relaxing. :-)

Hi Åslaug!
I do hope you live for today because that is the only day you have. I love my job and the 188 young people I will care for this year. They are so seeking and wondering about faith. We will have an evensong tomorrow night at 7. I will light a candle for you. Remembering you because I love you.
