One Week and Counting

There are many lessons to learn at any point in life, no matter where one is or what he is doing. Today is the one-week mark of my arrival in the Valley of the Sun.

The Run-Down
- It's hot: I'd say 110 is the average high. I prefer this to Evansville's muggy summer heat though.
- No word on a job yet. I've applied to a few places but haven't heard anything back. Today I'll start following up.
- This weekend I have an opportunity to go to Southern California on a beach retreat with the college and career group from my new church. Even though yesterday was my first time at the church, I felt very welcomed and right at home.
- Having time away from a job is a blessing, not a curse. I've been able to focus on listening to quality gospel-centered music, catching up on some coursework for college, and - most importantly - digging deep into God's word (1 Thessalonians).

The Greatest Lesson...
God has taught me so far is that fear will be a temptation in any circumstance that has potential for uncertainty. It doesn't matter where I am, or even the exact thing I am doing really; fear will always present itself. But God's love at work in me annihilates every trace of it.

To Come
Again, I must apologize for not putting up more pictures yet. Just hold tight for a few more days. =)
