What's next?

I'm still in Owen Sound, now living in my own apartment, which is terribly disorganized right now...even though I've been here since January! It's been nice having my own place, though I suppose at times it's a little lonely. It wouldn't be so bad if I actually knew people here. I am attempting to find a church to be a part of. So far it hasn't resulted in anything promising. A lady accross the street invited me to her church this Sunday, and the dear old lady who lives below me has invited me to her church at some point too, so I'm hoping something will come of these visits.

Work has been keeping me busy. My manager quit in the middle of February. It's been tough because we hired a new manager and a part-time employee, but I'm the only employee in our store who knows the ropes. Makes things a little stressful at times, but things are now going in a better direction, so once our little team is all trained up we'll be doing really well. The new manager is awesome. I really enjoy working with him, and his enthusiasm is very encouraging!

I'm not really sure what's next though. I enjoy my job for the most part, and the company is great to work for, but I don't want to do this just feels like a step along the way to something else...I just have no idea what that something else is. I'd like to go on a missions trip sometime, but I don't know where to, when, or for how long. With all the changes at work I would like to stick around for a while to get our store back on its feet, but I don't want to feel like I HAVE to stay...or to just settle in thinking that I'll leave someday, but not actually do it. I don't want to miss out on whatever it is I should be doing.

I guess the key to life and being content is following God's will and living for Him. I don't know what He wants me to do. Though, if I spent more time with Him, some things in life might be a little clearer.

I want to ranch...I think that would be fun! At least to try for a while. :P And by ranch I mean that I'd like to live on a ranch with horses and what not....I don't really want to do any cow herding....though maybe it would be fun too...I think I can probably convince Crystal to come with me out west and do some ranching! We can become real cowgirls! Woot! :P

Nic and I are supposed to be going to Jamaica on a cruise with her family next January...still a ways away, though I'm sure it'll be here in no time. I'm quite excited about that! I don't really have any set plans for the summer yet. I'm just glad that spring is finally here and the snow and cold will be gone soon!! And for now that is all I have to say...for the few that read this. :) I should now try and organize this pig sty I live in! God bless...
