Seven Quick Takes

Thing have been CRAZY around here! You would think that a girl with as many planner as I have would be able to stay sane…  Well, yes and no.  I have been working a lot of overtime, which is my preference, but between that, grad school, and extracurriculars, I don’t have a lot of down time for myself and it’s starting to take its toll.  I don’t have a good diet at the moment.  Nor any sort of exercise routine to speak of.  I desperately need to clean the house (although a friend helped quite a bit recently).  This week, I think I’m going to take a hard look at my time commitments and make a plan for fitting some of these things in.  Please keep me in your prayers and keep cheering me on! 🙂

Mitochondrial Disease Awareness
Speaking of my Mitochondrial Myopathy… This week is Mitochondrial Awareness week. My particular disease is a neuromuscular disorder, most consistent with MELAS. It is progressive and terminal. But this doesn’t stop me from trying to do everything that I love, sometimes to the dismay of my friends. However, I recently came across a quote that I just love:

Will I someday be standing with scars to give account before Him that I wasn’t about my own comfort but Christ’s call, that I didn’t make my life about safe living but about dangerous dying, that I didn’t escape into a neat, saved American dream but into a messy, mission-driven God-sized demand, H/T

I think this sums me up pretty nicely.

Coronels see the Pope!
Papa! My favorite family made the front page of the Free Press! Not only that, but they are currently in Philadelphia trying to cozy up to Pope Francis! What an awesome adventure! I am praying for their trip and for God to bless them with His grace. Love you guys!


I guess I only have 3 Quick Takes this week…

God Bless!
