Half a month later, I’m back. Can you believe how this year is flying speed-racing by?? Craziness! 
All of this time that I’ve had without a job I don’t think I’ve managed very well. I’ve been told by several friends that I should be journaling and processing my time in Haiti. At first, my excuse was that I didn’t know where to start. But I really just didn’t want to/know how to deal with stuff! And I knew I was going to have to surrender my life and things in it. Say what?? 🙂 But I’ve decided that I’m ready to live with open hands again. God can place things in them and remove things from them as He pleases. What does surrender mean anyway? Dictionary.com says ‘to yield (something) to the possession or power of another.’ The words to the song ‘Take my life and let it be’ come to mind. 

In other news, I filled out an application to be a detailer at Carmax last night and got a call this morning. I had a phone interview and I have a real interview on Monday. So hopefully that will pan out. 

Aunt Mary is coming this weekend for Labor Day. Pretty excited for that!!! I am also turning 26 *gasp* on Sunday. It’s kinda crazy! I was talking to Emily, who turned 26 on Tuesday, the other day and I said, “we’re getting old!!!”

This post was kind of all over the place, but … that’s my life!! 🙂

About leahgduncan

I'm just a woman that wants to serve Jesus Christ with her whole life. I want to live with my hands wide open to Him, letting him fill my hands and take things away as He pleases. I currently live in Port au Prince, Haiti, working with an international missions organization called Youth With A Mission (YWAM). I love Haiti and know that I will be attached to Haiti for the rest of my life. At this time I don't know if that means I'll always live here, but I know I'll always come back here.
