Where's your head at?

So, I've officially lost my mind.

Today, after already leaving the house late to deposit my sad little < $100 paycheck in the bank, I did the goofiest thing ever. Instead of driving to my internship, I drove to my church.

There is a place in the road where 301 separates into two sections, you can either continue following 301 all the way down, or merge onto the interstate. I go down 301 to get to my summer internship, I merge onto the interstate to get to church.

I was on the interstate before I even knew what I was doing. And I thought to myself "Crap, I'm really losing my mind."

So, I continued driving to my church, because that was the only way I could turn around and head north toward the office. Now, my gas tank is dwindling, and I have about an 8th of a tank left to get me to my babysitting job, and home again.

I really screwed up this time.

I probably drove there because nearly every spare moment of my life has been spent at my church this summer, which is not a bad thing at all! I love my church. Last night, we had our last Dominican missions trip training (I leave Saturday at 12 a.m. for Dulles airport!!!!!). This morning I'm a little sore (understatement...I pulled my back and neck muscles...) because we did the lifehouse drama not once, not twice but THREE times.

If you haven't seen this skit, seriously watch it. It is powerful. And it represents something I think we can all relate to. The only thing more powerful than watching it, is actually acting it out. But, if you're the main girl, you pretty much get WAILED on. I got punched in the eye a couple of times, grabbed in places I should not have been grabbed, among other things.

Therefore, I am walking around like a little old lady today. All for the love of Jesus :) I hope the message will get across to the Dominicans this weekend, and I hope it will get across to you too!
