It's official....

What a week….after spending 5 days in a classroom learning more about the audit process, (which was interesting) I received a phone call and officially will be moving into an apartment complex in Alexandria, Virginia sometime in the middle of April.  Thank you for praying, it was definitely effective and worked!  

I will be in a studio/efficiency apartment as I build up my furnishings.  I am not going to purchase much stuff at first until I know what I really I want and get a bigger salary.  J  I will get the basics and go from there.  Plus I want to see what I have and how it all fits with everything.   Not going to rush things.    Pictures will be coming in the future.  Be prepared to be overwhelmed by my natural decorative abilities…..ha ha ha.    I think a Wii might be a good accent to whatever I have….still thinking on that one.   J

Well I did it….I got on the wrong train and took a nice tour of DC, underground, Tuesday morning.  Oh how I just laugh at myself and my adventures.   Good thing I was early and had some time to spare.

I could devote a whole other blog to just stories of how the Lord has taken care of me and worked on my behalf since I have been here.  It’s been a truly amazing experience.  The things I have learned since being here are life changing for me.  I love it.  All of what I had to experience before I came, obviously prepared me for this time.  Never underestimate trials and tribulations in life.  You will get more out of them than you will realize.  Wow….I am in complete awe of our God!

That’s it for now…off to meet a great Pastor for coffee.

The best is yet to come!
