It started with a couple sentences back in April.
On Thursday morning I woke up inspired with the rest,
and it became . . .
My original plan for Thursday was to stay in bed and sleep as long as possible. I work at a year-round Christian camp, and we are currently in our busiest season. So I am pretty much daydreaming about the next time I get to sleep.
Every single day.
But that changed when I woke up and instantly began to write down sentence after sentence. I hadn’t even had my first cup of coffee before I latched onto the insane notion that I would then compose and record an audio track, film a video, edit it all together, and then release it on Saturday. Mind you, I had to work Friday and part of Saturday. It was slightly ridiculous.
Thankfully, I live for ridiculous.
Why did it have to be released on Saturday? Honestly, I could have released it a month from now, but I did it for myself. Simply because I needed to.
Saturday was the day of my almost-wedding. To those who have been quietly wondering since April, the wedding was called off. I had my reasons. Thank you, friends, for being supportive even without knowing all of the details.
To answer your next question, I am doing well. Very well. In the end, I am thankful that God is in control and that He is a good, protective Father. And honestly, it has been around roughly seven years since I have met Single Stephanie. I really like this for the moment. After sorting through some things with the Lord for the past few months, I have emerged with some new standards, clearer perspective, a healthier view on my self-worth, and more peace than I have had in . . . . yes, seven years.
Besides working, I have been spending a majority of my time pursuing my passion for photography and furthering my experience in filmmaking. I have big dreams regarding both and I am taking steps every day to experiment and challenge myself to go further. If you are not yet friends with me on Facebook, I post a photo of the day on a regular basis.
I am also in the works of a new music project titled, Awakening. Most of the songs were written while I was playing out in the streets of Portland. It will be so different from anything I have ever released that I find myself slightly lightheaded at the thought. I plan to write a few more songs to complete the album and I am determined to put out a promo video by the fall.
I cannot believe that we are already halfway through 2015. So much has already happened, and there is still much more to come. I am preparing to return to Iceland in September for another conference with His Glory to the Nations. My heart has been longing to return ever since my first trip last year. I am currently putting together a promo video for that as well. [Yes, I have quite a few projects going on right now . . .]
That said, the projects won’t finish themselves. 😉 Be back soon . . .
