I called the leaders of this Grace Walk group early yesterday afternoon and left a message on their answering machine telling them I was very interested in joining with the group. I haven't heard back from them yet, but I hope so possibly this weekend. I am so anxious to hear back from them! I was sort of bummed this morning from the heaviness of the questions I posted about last night. So I sort of sat around today and watched the soccer game between Chelsea and Manchester United. That was an...interesting match. Manchester couldn't control their temper or frustration and got themselves a 25,000$ fine for 6 yellow cards I believe. Anyway...I'm not certain anyone who comes here (other than you, Manuela) cares about soccer.

But yeah...the wounds from last nights worry were still in my mind and I had a dream about an ex...girlfriend I guess you'd call her? That sort of had my mind all whacky. So I didn't really do anything productive. I hope tomorrow is different. I love it when Jesus and I clean the house together.

The weather has been absolutely beautiful! low 70s to high 60's during the day with a good breeze blowing through the open windows. I had to tell God how amazing He was for it. Of course my words couldn't accurately express my heart. He is so smart for creating these breezy, cool days. Fall is my favorite season of the year. I think of how it was as a kid...My dad and I went to the pumpkin patch in 1st grade. It was chilly and we picked out pumpkins, went on a hay ride and drank apple cider. I love the sights and smells of fall and the beautiful, brisk early mornings. I look forward to Jesus and I cutting back some of our plants outside tomorrow. Hopefully we'll get done early enough to read my book which came out Saturday. The 3rd book in the Inheritance Cycle. Can't wait.

I'm sort of anxious about my appointment with Vocational Rehab this Thursday. They will hopefully (I'm leaning on God for this) provide me with a job with good insurance to get a new prosthetic. This one is only still functioning by God's provision. But I just need to trust Him and take it one step at a time. He will give me the ability to do my job. Hopefully I can get registered to vote while I'm there. Palin for VP! I won't get into that right now though. :)

Also...I don't know if anyone caught Fox and Friends yesterday morning but I was watching it and they were answering an e-mail question from our brother Andy in my Church. I thought that was pretty cool. I love that show.

I love your open, honesty in sharing about your life. This is truly a gem.
I will genuinely pray that Father will help you sort out why you've been having these thoughts of your ex-girlfriend so that you may come to a point of peace.

I'm glad you enjoyed the lovely weather you've been having. It certainly sounds pleasant. Indeed, Fall is such a colorful season...and I too love the crisper weather, breezes, and coziness of it all. May you continue enjoying it, Matt.

Awesome that you'll be cleaning house tomorrow and doing some gardening.

I will also keep you in my prayers regarding your appointment with Vocational Rehab. My you rest and Trust that He will abundantly provide for you, in whatever way, shape and form He knows is best for you.Indeed, baby-steps of Trust. He's got His eyes out for you. He does.

Ah...happy to hear you'll be registering to vote. Such an important privledge we have...and best when exercised.:)

You certainly have some busy rest of the week, my friend! Enjoy it! Thanks for giving us fellow bloggers the update!

Are you a soccer fan? Soccer is my favorite sports.

One breath at a time, Matthew...
that's all any of us can do, just rest in God's faithfulness.
We're praying for you and all the things swirling around you...memories, concerns, thoughts, needs.
And you are right; the weather is gorgeous! How much God must love us to have created seasons just to feed our senses...every brilliant leaf and perfect Carolina blue sky!

Thank you for your prayers everyone. It really blesses my heart to know you all pray for me. What an amazing family I have in Christ...

Bino...I love soccer. I don't really like American soccer, but recently I've come to love LA Galaxy. Especially after their match with DC United last weekend. Landon Donovan is insane!! As much as people hate him for people the popular guy, I enjoy watching David Beckham play soccer. He's very graceful about it.
