one last last thing (or, how can the watch I've been wearing for over a year give me a rash now?!)

I wanted to get one last thing down before the year popped out. Even if it's how I want to try and live my life for 2010 (and beyond), it was a 2009 epiphany. I've been fighting so much this year (some on, most off the blog) trying to figure out where I want to be, what I want to be doing, what I want want want. But the important thing isn't figuring out what I want, it's discovering what God needs from my life. If I, Hannah, want something out of life that doesn't gel with God's plan for me, I don't want to want that anymore.

Of course, the harder part is separating my wants from His needs. But at least I now have a mantra to go to when my brain starts getting jumbled: not what I want/what You need.

Of course, it'd be nice if it was easier to figure out which was which. I'll be praying for you; God has a tendency to reveal Himself at just the right moments.

Incidentally, I just saw your latest tweet, and hope I didn't wake you up with my midnight text.

I wasn't asleep; I was up past one reading a Babysitter's Club book. (The Super Specials are longer than I remember.)
