yesterday was my 5 year chialphaversary.
5 years since I attended my first chi alpha service.
5 years since i prayed a simple prayer on palm walk
“God, please don’t let this be awkward….”
the 1st person I met was angela who has poured out
5 years of wisdom, patience, grace, and love on me.
that 1st night that i met carly- singing with her red, white, and blue backpack on.
5 years since our fusion group met in Hayden West & pulled pranks & spent all of our time together.
oh and learned how to have “real” conversations and not give sunday school answers.
shawn or candi could barely look at me and i would start crying.
they were asking me questions that id never been asked before & saw to my potential that i couldn’t see.
I guess in 5 years has not changed much in that regard.
It has been 5 years of healing, encouragement, correction, refinement, challenge, and love.
so overwhelmed, so thankful, and so blessed that His 5 year plan
has taken me on an adventure far greater than i ever could have ever planned for myself.
this is why
i hand out flyers & invite people to our events & stay up until all hours having taco fiestas.
because how could I not
give someone the opportunity to have
5 years, too.
