My Life as a Rurouni
Hello Every One,
If your not familiar with the term Rurouni, it means wanderer. It is a more romantic term then nomad. Which is what I am right now, traveling from one place to the next for weeks at a time. I don’t mind, it is an adventure! I have with me my cloths, my Bible, the books I am writing, my laptop, and some new shoes. 🙂 I don’t need more then that, however it would be nice to have some other personal belongings, so I could at least start to feel conformable. My pastor once said Comfort can be bad, which is true when your “settled into something” you sometimes don’t want to venture out of that comfort. I see my time now as a new adventure with lots of new leaning experiences, new friends, and much inspiration… God is so good…
So far I’ve been to two homes… I just got back to my “Main Temporary” place of residence. There is no way I will live in this house permanently. The house is great but the neighborhood is not even close to good. I am happy to have a roof over my head and a wonderful family that is so willing to let me stay here while I work on getting my books done and sorting out who I want to be and where I want to go with my life. That is a never ending battle with everyone I think, until they have that “deciding moment” and even after. We are but humans and it is hard to keep on track all the time. Unless you have amazing self discipline. Something I am working on.
My whole family is taking Major leap of faith moving out here, and though it has been hard on them / us. I see God opening doors for us all over. Even with the stress of money and separation, God is making a way where there seems to be no way.
Back to my books, I just started unpacking, I have my recent work hand written, and it will take days to type up all the pages I have written. But I am looking forward to getting back to them and I hope I’ll have the time stating Tuesday. One thing I will tell you I love Washington! I have only seen a little of it where I am residing is not good. However there are many beautiful places in this state! I especially love the West Coast. Oregon the other place I go to a lot is Even more Breathtaking!! Well from what I saw so far. Where my mother lives, and the drive there is wonderful! I will most likely live there in the future, near here unless I find a good man and get settled with him before I get settled near family. It is ALL IN GOD’S HANDS! And I trust him because he has shown me miracle after miracle, and has come through for me even when I could see no way.
I miss you all my dear friends, family that I left, and my Church! God Bless you all! Be safe!
