Okay heres the scoop..........last Tuesday the 28th was our 11 months since our DTR and so Roger and I decided to spend the day together. We got up and went running, then went to a coffee shop to do a quiet time and then work on vision plans for our students....all 8 of them.....then we went up to La Jolla and went to lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe and sat by the ocean and watched for a little bit. Then we went to Torrey Pines State Park and walked around on the trails. It was so beautiful. Then we were talking about having to leave each other again for a long time and he said "I am really excited that this is the last big chunck of time that we ever have to spend apart." I kinda looked at him then stared at the ocean because i didn't know what was going on. He got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. I said "are you serious" three times and he was like, "Sara please say yes." I then said yes. He got up and then talked to me about that He loves me, which was the first time he ever said i love you, and that he wants to spend the rest of his life with me. I did tell him i love him too! yeah that was fun. So we are engaged.....and for those of you that know we hadn't kissed, we have now......in an appropriate manner that is. Okay thats all, here ya go!

So i just read here at the mill again, my last day in Lincoln.(I am going to Omaha tonight and flying out tomorrow morning). I was reading about Joseph and when he was called from the prison to go interpret Pharoah's dream. He shaved and changed clothes to go into Pharoah's presence. I am SO thankful that isn't the way we have to do things. We don't have to make ourselves look good, clean up our act, or be perfect to go into God's presence. All we have to do is call on Him and He will clean us up and make us perfect. Wow.

p.s..........12 hours till I have to wake up to leave for San Diego, 14 hours until I fly out, 19 hours until i am IN San Diego, 56 hours till I see Roger in the San Diego airport!

I am at the mill right now checking my email. Today I went to Columbus, NE to my third cousin's fiance's bridal shower, lol. Shes awesome tho and shes from minnesota. We like hanging out so I had a good time!

(GOOD STUFF!) This morning I read in Genesis about Joseph. When he went to check on his brothers, they said there comes the dreamer. Why didn't they say there comes joseph or there comes our brother???? because we are labeled by what we do, we are labeled by the things we are involved in. I don't want to be labeled a sorority girl. I don't want to be labeled a "CRU-er" or a Crusader. I don't want to be labeled anything other than what truly matters, and that is that I am a follower of Christ. So what do I do to change the label that I have? How do I make my life focused more on the Lord, rather than the organization that believes in the Lord? How do I present myself as a sold-out follower of Christ and not so much as someone who goes to Christian events? That is what I ponder.....I want to change my life so that people label me as a follower of Christ, not a Crusade leader or in the Crusade clique. I want to change my life so people look at me and see Jesus, not Sara, not Crusade, nothing but Him.

Come away with me in the night
Come away with me
And I will write you a song
Come away with me on a bus
Come away with me where they can't tempt us
With their lies

I want to walk with you
On a cloudy day
In fields where the yellow grass grows
knee kigh
So won't you try to come

Come away with me and we'll kiss
On a mountain top
Come away with me
And I'll never stop loving you

And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I'm safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me

p.s. I just poured my heart out onto two pages of a word document, into a word document that will be password protected. I wonder if I will ever be able to give it to who it is intended for.

Okay so heres the deal, not many people play xanga in the summer, BUT i am still going to try to update. Even if few people read it, I will try my hardest. I will have internet out there now which is good! yeah! I am not nervous to leave and go out to san diego as an intern, because I know God has me where He wants me right now. I know God is going to use me, even if I don't deserve to be used by Him. I know that it is all in His hands, and I just have to let Him have control.

Lord, open my eyes to all you are doing around me. Open my eyes to how you have worked in my life. Open my eyes to the love you have for me. Open my eyes so that I can see myself as you see me-beautiful, pure, holy, blameless, righteous, perfect all because of your Son. Open my eyes to the hurting people around me. Open my eyes to see how I can serve others. Open my eyes to your plan for me. Open my eyes to see all you have for me, and want for me. Open my eyes to see YOU more!

Im off work in half an hour, then my mom and I are eating dinner, then coffee at the MILL with Steph Hile, heck ya!

BTW-i think i have a fracture in my foot from running, it hurts

Going along with the goal of your life being your faith, which is your salvation..........That means

I need ONE thing in my life, which is Jesus Christ. Because of that ONE thing that I have; I am a child of God, not of the world. I am loved unconditionally. I have the truth of God in my heart. I have forgiveness. I have trust. I have life everlasting. I have a purpose. I have a mission. I have a best friend. I have a ministry. I have comfort. I have peace. I have a passion. I have a vision. I have a place of refuge. I have a rock to stand on. I have someone to pick me up when I fall. I have someone carrying me. I have strength when i am weak. I have someone seeking after me even if i don't seek back. I have one who knows every detail about me, and I don't have to hide anything. I have someone I can be real with. I have someone who sees me as the ONLY thing I need, Jesus Christ.

The truth is, regardless of the circumstances, regardless of what we feel, regardless of what we think, God IS good, and everything He does is good.

Its crazy how things can change so fast.....we should never get confident in something that God can take away in an instant (which is almost everything except of course He won't take away our salvation!) This is the first time I have felt like I have gone through something pretty difficult since summer project....it is definately showing me a lot about myself, and how I view God.....it is a good thing that God is showing me these things and that God is going to blow me out of the water with His faithfulness, and yet again I will feel like a butthead for doubting Him. Maybe someday I will learn to fully trust Him, fully believe that He will provide, fully believe that He knows what is best, and FULLY give Him control of my life, every bit of it, every little thing and not try to hold onto the thread or take it back.
