Opa !

Hello There My Lovelies,

Okay, I will try to make this fast as I have an assload of homework to finish. My complaint is due tomorrow. Not feeling the love.

Today is Sunday and I wore my cute new sundress to church along with my new eyeshadow. I felt really pretty. I haven't felt like that in a long time. Every woman should feel pretty. As I was leaving my roommate took a look and was like "Where are you going ?" LOL.

The service this morning was really nice. I was late but made it in time to sing a little. The sermon was nice. At first I didn't feel it was relevant to my life, but then he said something that blew me away.

The pastor was talking about things that prevent us from having a personal relationship with God. Of course he said "material things". Another thing that could keep us from having a relationship with God is our own dreams and expectations. He said " Some of you had dreams that haven't happened. Some of you hoped to be married and that hasn't happened for you yet. Some of you expected to still be married. Some of you thought you would be healthy. These expectations and your own life plans can prevent you from letting go of the past and from forgiving those that hurt you. This disappointment can also prevent you from reaching out to God and asking Him to lead you in the direction that you are meant to go."

I don't know why but that really made me emotional, and one of the women in front of me was also wiping her tears. There are things that have happened to me in the past that I am having such a hard time letting go of. If you are anything like me, you always ask the questions of "what if". Or "Maybe I could have done things differently". My expectations of my future haven't worked out. Plans flopped. It happened to me and it happens to all of us. All I want is to let go and be happy.

So......... after the service my friend and I went to the Greek Festival. It was held at a Greek church that my friend was married at. That was so much fun ! I blew all my cash on Greek food. I was going to order the calamari, but decided on having Gyros instead. After that we had dessert and sat down and talked to a couple of people. While I was there I felt like I was in Greece, lol. Beautiful day, good food, Greek dancing, festive people, Greek merchandise......... They were selling some bellydance outfits that were waaaay overpriced. Come to think of it, stuff at festivals tend to be overpriced anyway.

The Greek dancing was wonderful. I couldn't watch all of it, but I enjoyed watching the dancers perform. I have been lucky enough to attend two Greek weddings in my life. The dancing is one of the advantages of attending Greek events.

Anyway, that is all for now. I better get back to my homework.
