Of shopping and change.

Tonight I went shopping for some "office job" clothes. No more jeans for me, I guess. I was in a "I don't want to spend money" mood, which made the trip maddening because money did have to be spent. I also picked up some school supplies for my sister, Bec, one of which was a router so that she doesn't have to use my computer anymore. I like having my own things, I've decided. It's kind of wierd, having someone else in the house - last night when Kev and Bec were both here I felt claustrophobic at times.

Things are a whole lot more messy than before, and Bec keeps asking me "what are we having for supper, Sar?".

This is my third living arrangement of this year already, and I'm about to embark on my second job. Not only that, but there are other big changes coming. I feel like I'm starting a new life. Because of that fact, I'm perming my hair. Not uber-curly, but wavy. My hair is naturally kinda that way anyways. I'm also planning on changing my name, what do you think of Samantha?

Seriously, though - what would I do without my everpresent Rock? The past week has been glorious at times with God, He keeps coming closer not only with me, but with Kev and I together. It makes life seem more like life when that happens. In light of this closeness He is giving - read Revelation 5, which contains the best hymn I've ever seen in this world.

1 And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. 2 Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?” 3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.
4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read[a] the scroll, or to look at it. 5 But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose[b] its seven seals.”
6 And I looked, and behold,[c] in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. 7 Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.
8 Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. 9 And they sang a new song, saying:

“ You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
10 And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth.”

11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice:

“ Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom,
And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”

13 And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying:

“ Blessing and honor and glory and power
Be to Him who sits on the throne,
And to the Lamb, forever and ever!”

14 Then the four living creatures said, “Amen!” And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped Him who lives forever and ever.

Man, I think the "What are we having for supper?" question ought to be met with the "I don't know, what are you making?"

Oh, in addtion, your reference to changing your name reminded me of that Cake song

"She's changing her name from Kitty to Karen, she's trading her MG for a white Chrysler Le Baron" -Short Skirt, Long Jacket

Is this they type of change you're talking about?
