Easter, The Beach and Weather Or Not
It has been a while since I have written about the little that I know. Here is one thing that I did not know:
There is sand at Lake Michigan!
Now, where I come from, there is dirt at lakes. There is sand at beaches. This threw off my equilibrium for a while when I visited Lake Michigan with my roomie over break.
In fact, I talked about it during the entire time I was at the Lake, and with anyone who would listen afterwards (those of you who know me, you know this is true).
Just to prove I was there, here are some pictures for you. It has been WAY TOO LONG since I have posted pictures and this photographer is ashamed. I'll try to do better....
Okay, so this is me, still in shock and thinking that this looks a LOT like Anne of Green Gables, thus the pose...
Katy and her friend Katie (yes I know) who came with us, laughed at me constantly while we were there...and really the whole time we were hanging out...
I convinced Katy (who hasn't seen Anne) that we needed to take pictures of us on this beautiful dune. Although it is not as Anne-esque as many, I find it amusing...
This picture (taken by my also photographer roommate) symbolizes my jump into the unknown of the future, or something like that...(isn't it cool?)
Over Easter, I was taken in and treated like a part of the family. If you've read some of my posts on the topic of hospitality before, you will know how greatly I prize it.
This was no exception.
It also gave me time to think, pray and work, and work through. There was time, and part of that time I couldn't avoid facing myself. As much as I don't like doing that, I am, and I am finding that the enemy is myself, which is what I have both known and feared for all of my life.
Now God can deal with that.
Life at the reference desk has been fast-paced since I got back. I've been a little ill, and perhaps my patience is not what it could be, but my humor seems to be improving. Here is an example, a real live question that I got this week...and my answer:
