I love this band. I listen to them daily. Even though we are looking at another camera, we all look like we're alert for it being a fan signing and it's 11:30 p.m. on a Friday.

Future Ponderings

    I'm just sitting here, trying to unsuccessfully not think about my pending course project, which is mostly finished. For some reason I have not been motivated today. I really prefer Saturdays for my day of rest (unfortunately Sundays is usually the day that it is). Saturday is my favorite day, except in the summer when Saturday means that I am working on a busy day.
    I am pondering my future, as everyone is prone to do. I am not looking forward to graduating, yet I want to graduate as soon as possible. I really want a job, but what job? I don't know. It's like there's this job that my spirit longs for and it is somewhere off in the future. I know it subconsciously but not consciously. It's like there's a job that my spirit knows is after graduation. And lately I've been feeling more and more that I am not going to be getting a job the media, that I don't even want to be a reporter. Yet I don't want to drop my major and pick up another one. Does that even make sense? I have been contemplating starting my own business, but don't know. That's most likely where I'd go if I drop my Mass Communication degree. Or I'd become a preacher and study for that.

Maybe not, although I would like to do something like that. I really, really like researching more than anything else lately.

I seem to spend a lot of time desiring the future, which I absolutely am not sure is a good thing. Maybe if I focused on Heaven, of which I am a citizen, my home country, as opposed to Earth, then I would not ponder the future so much. I just know that I really want to get married. I didn't, at first. I thought I was willing to wait. And I am, until the right person comes along. But I hope that's soon, because I want to start building a family of my own. And it isn't wrong, and it isn't a sin.

I long to have a baby of my own. Today I saw my friend's baby going to sleep, with her smooth skin and chubbiness, and I remembered being in the nursery holding the babies while their parents are in the church service, and I just felt an ache in my arms. I have never had a baby, just seen my friends' babies, but for some reason I ached to be holding a baby. But until I either meet, or am drawn to, I'll admit I may already know him, my future husband, I will wait. But until then, I will try to prepare myself to be a wife and mother for God's glory :) That's all I can do.

And someone pointed out to make sure that I want to be a strong woman of God, not just a wife and mother. I agree! My primary goal (which I forget sometimes) is to be a woman of God who is a mother and wife. If I never marry or have children, I can still be a strong woman of God. And that is all that matters! "On Christ the solid rock I am built." 

Praying you have faith, hope, and love always,

Rachel

Awww, that just sounds marvelous, hope and pray you meet the right person soon. Just remember that simply wanting kids is the wrong reason to get married; let God keep preparing you to be an wholesome woman of God. I am sure he has someone special for you:)
