A Hope, a Future, and a Week at Home

My oh my, it is good to be home! Thanks to a two week break between shows, I was able to pop down to Texas for some quality time with family and friends, and I flew in to the Lone Star State this past Sunday. Mom met me at the airport with sweet tea in hand. I felt so known and loved! We hauled my suitcases to the car and headed home.

I'm also on the uphill climb from a week-long sickness. This darn thing kept me in bed Wednesday-Saturday and I'm pretty sure I only crawled out of bed on Sunday because I was running the slides at church then headed to the airport. I sniffled my way through my final graduate school interview yesterday but no one seemed to notice.

This week is a big week in my book. A large portion of my next few years will be decided in the next few days and I need all the wisdom, grace, and clarity I can get. I am a pro at over-complicating and wanting that color coded calendar I keep talking about. However, sometimes we are called to step out in faith even with the road ahead unclear. It's time to hold to the truth that He has plans for me that are to bring hope and a future {Jeremiah 29:11} and it is a comfort to know that the secret things belong to the Lord {Deuteronomy 29:29}. He holds everything safe in His hands and is worthy of our trust.

Today I have the joyous task of returning to the orthodontist (blehhhhhh) to get a permanent retainer put in. Exciting right? But what is exciting follows tomorrow! I have a lunch date with the lovely Victoria, dinner plans with my Big, and a friend's competition show to catch that evening. Friday sends me off to Baylor and back into the family I miss so much! Y'all. Being home is great. I so needed this.

What are y'all up to this week? I'd love to know!

Oh, and be on the look out for a fun announcement on Friday ;)
