I didn’t plan on posting today. You might have guessed that as it is now 1:10 (my sleep schedule is wacked right now).
But I had to write something.
Remember this post where I talked about all that I wanted to do. I felt so helpless and broken because I couldn’t do everything at once.
I’m feeling that again tonight, but in a different way, a hopeful way.
a lot about the dog I’m currently fostering. Well, she is going to a rescue on Saturday (a good one) and it just sort of hit me tonight how much I’ve come to love her. (Don’t worry Chelsea and parents, she’s still going to the rescue.) And its not hard for me to fall in love with any animal. 😉 But still, its been hard accepting the fact that I can’t just rescue all the dogs I want until I’m more “settled”.
Today I was going back through some web sites I bookmarked about teaching abroad and sharing Christ. I got so excited just looking at all the opportunities and know that thats something I definitely want to do.
Tonight I went through Netflix looking for some food documentary to re-ignite my spark about food. I decided to watch Food Inc. again since I hadn’t seen it since senior year in high school. If you haven’t seen it, go watch it now. I cried a minimum of 5 times. That flame is a burnin’. One day I will have a huge farm where I can grow my own food, rescue a bunch of animals, and have it be a place where people can come to learn all about it.
So I know this post is really random. These are the things that I’m passionate about. Instead of wallowing that I can’t be doing all of them now, I’m excited about all that is ahead. I can’t do this things in the scale that I want to yet but I can still do them now.
I can volunteer with organizations to still help the puppies. I can eat sustainably. I’m one hundred percent back to being vegan. I’m more convicted than ever and so excited to spend the rest of the summer cooking and writing about it 😉
And most importantly, I can share Christ and impact my community here, now. I can use this time to grow in my relationship with Christ to prepare for those years. To be refined, to be grown, and to dig my roots deep in Christ.

*I also want to be a high school English teacher so I can teach students to love reading and write better than I did in this post. 😉
