Just want to ask you to keep me in your prayers. The bubble of grace I was in after my mission trip is slowly giving away to the day to day loneliness I so often feel. I am also not crazy about Christmas - it is the least favorite time of year for me - I am grateful for Jesus' birth but I dislike everything else about this time of year. It represents a lot of lonely and unhappy times in my life as a child.
Also, I am feeling a little discouraged these days because Todd has not contacted me since I returned from Mexico. I sent him pics of the trip and thought I'd atleast hear, "great pictures" from him, but nothing. One day last week at work I pulled into the parking lot and Todd pulled into the lot next over - he looked at me and I was about to wave and he turned away. Before I left on my trip I gave him a book by Lee Strobel, "The Case for a Creator" - if you remember, Todd isn't even sure he believes there is a God. Ultimately, it is okay that Todd and I don't speak anymore - it's his choice and I will respect that. I only hope and pray someday Todd reads the book with an opened heart and begins a relationship with God.
Thanks my friends for your prayers.
