*wipes off dust*

TIME FLIES.

That's one of my most used phrases. 

So much going on in life... Silent retreat is much needed. I am still learning to withdraw and just have some quiet time, alone with God. Counting my blessings, thankful for everything - the good and bad.

Short chat that eventually took hours. 
With silent moments, pondering, laughing, reminiscing and all in between.

No, this doesn't happen often, everyone is busy, so am I, but it was much needed. 
It was a conversation with a dear friend in Christ. We could remember the last time we really talked, (which was a semester ago), where we were, what we talked about, and this conversation was almost a continuation of it. We said we'll check on each other but, well, ok, at least we properly did that now LOL. We've grown so much and at this season of life, we're facing different circumstances. I was comfortable with us not trying to act like we know the right words to say hence the silence, but it was genuine to me. IDK how to put it into words but yea... that was that. 

I was assured that it is OK when things don't turn out the way I hope to, that it is OK for me to feel a certain way towards certain things. I needed honesty. I had the memory of an old friend LOL. and, I needed to care for a friend too. 

Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

God is an expert at bringing good out of bad in our lives. And yes, before I graduate, we better have that promised meal!

There are many friendships that I am thankful for too, everyday simple meals together, classes together, simple chats, texts etc. :)

God bless you ♥
