Sacred Heart Novena
So I'm slowly but surely informing my family that I plan to take off for a year. Today I told my mother, who it turns out, is in the middle of a novena for me to the Sacred Heart to find a husband NOW (her emphasis, not mine) or whatever God Wills to make me happy...and she is ecstatic. Apparently 16 months doesn't seem that far away after all! I did send in my application. They said 2 weeks to get a response and 2 months to complete the process. If that doesn't bear fruit I will look to another mission but as things stand now...I guess I feel called to something, somewhere for 2016. Like my mom told me, "You told God yes, so He will take you where He wants you."
One of my co-workers made a big mistake today...and usually when that happens I think, "It could have been me!" Unfortunately the fear of hurting someone is very real in the medical profession...but it is also a feeling that can ruin your ability to be a savvy and intuitive provider. I need to place my skills and future in the hands of God (once again) and trust that if someday He does permit me to make a huge life-destroying mistake...it will be for His greater glory.
I'm heading out of the country again in less than a week. This time to Peru to sightsee and hike Machu Picchu with a friend. I am very excited!! How am I so blessed?? Already making plans to slow it down in 2015 with the travel thing...so far only have three trips I've been contacted about...I'm committed to two of them...and I think I'd be wise to commit to not going anywhere else!
Well...maybe I just mean I will stay state-side and hit up local areas. :o) God bless and please pray for the hurting, persecuted Christians in Iraq.
