classic jeni story

Let me break it down for you!  Last night I went to my tuesday night bible study at Nikki and Steve's place.  I always expect to stay super late.  We debate scripture for a couple hours .... and then of course have a ton of fun ;)  ..... you know games & a BONFIRE!!!!!  Well, last night was even more late than usual!  I didn't have to work today sooooooooooo I was pretty much there into the next morning .... I know right.  Anyways I get home and as I am walking to the door I realize I do not have the apartment key to get in!  Oh no .... classic next step .... CALL DAD!  He of course comes to my rescue even tho he had been sleeping for hours.  This whole 'call dad' thing ..... it's a very common thing in my life.  Run out of gas (yes this has happened surprisingly a lot .... or not surprisingly) - call dad, drive car into ditch - call dad, get lost driving in chicago - call dad, lock my keys in my car - call dad .... wow this is starting to get embarrassing.  OK sooooo my point LOL .... I am moving out on my own October 8th!  I finally found my apartment and will be officially on my own for the very first time in my life!  I think everyone should start praying for my keys, my driving, my directions .... and my dad's sanity!!!!  

side note:  I love you, dad!  I am so lucky to have you in my life .... and for more reasons than just you coming to my rescue!  You are the perfect role model.  You have SHOWN me what a true man of faith is suppose to look like.  God has blessed me so much to have my spiritual father be my very own dad!  You are the best!

and of course mom (since I am having a sentimental moment here) .... I am going to miss our morning coffee talks and our afternoon rollerblades!  If I can grown up to be half the woman you are, I will be incredibly lucky!  You are an amazing mother!  You are such a strong person .... thank you for always leading me towards Jesus.  I love you!

WOW .... ha ha .... sorry .... I am having a moment   

He reveals deep and hidden things

Daniel prayed: "Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. I thank and praise you, O God of my fathers: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you, you have made known to us the dream of the king."
Daniel 2:20-23
