busy and tired, but excited!

I am exhausted, I got up at 6:50am with out a problem, and ready to venture off to Krakow again! This time I had to take the bus from Zakopane to Nowy Targ to Carol and Denise’s place, it is a half hour walk to the bus station, and about a half hour on the bus, by car it only takes 20 min from door to door. However, I was fully awake (thank God, I was able to get to bed before midnight last night) and ready for the day ahead. We left Nowy Targ at about eight and were in Krakow just after half past nine. Our first stop, coffee, you just cannot get Seattleites away from coffee it was great! The main reason for going to Krakow was to pick up our friend Howard from England, but his plane would not arrive until 1:45pm, so we had some time to kill. Therefore, we went Christmas shopping, I got a few things for people back home, and we got some Christmas decorations for our apartment, on Saturday we get the tree!

I am slowly preparing for our young adults group on Saturday, Denise and I will be tag-team teaching about what the Holy Spirit does (not the fruits, but what does the Holy Spirit do for us) in our lives. I am hoping for some kind of object lesson and hopefully I can pull something from my past to demonstrate it even further. I have lots of information; I am just not sure how we are going to dispense it. I know the Holy Spirit will lead them into all truth; it is just a matter of loving on them, so they can feel safe and comfortable to ask us questions. This is unquestionably a point of prayer, thanks!

Personally, I am doing a lot better than this time last week! Thank you for your prayers. I can’t believe I’ll actually be going to bed before ten tonight, I can’t remember the last time I did that! I have many things rattling around in my brain lately just not sure how to word them right now. All I know for sure is this: God is good all the time, Jesus is much more than I can ever imagine, and I have so much to learn. However, one-step at a time will make life much better, I do not need to see all the steps, and I do not need an instruction booklet because I have a personal guide.

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not be presenting his own ideas; he will be telling you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. He will bring me glory by revealing to you whatever he receives from me. [John 16:13-14]
