Hello, beautiful people, it's Peytona! Happy Saturday! How's your weekend going so far? Post in the comments! My weekend is going really well. God has been blessing the work of my hands and my relationships with my sisters in Christ. I feel so loved by Him. I was on the radio this Wednesday. It was an incredible experience. I'm looking forward to my other two interviews. It should be a lot of fun.
I'm going to a sleepover this evening! I'm really excited about that. I haven't had a sleepover in a while. We're gonna be dog sitting for a family in the church. I love doggies. I have one named Harley. He's a cockapoo. I love him a lot. I've had him since he was a little puppy. Do you like dogs? What's your favorite breed or are you more of a cat person? I love cats too. Mammals are my favorite in general. They're so fuzzy.
Have you been enjoying my excerpts on Tuesdays and Thursdays? I hope so. I reached out to a publisher and an agent recently. I hope they take on The Mutates. That would make me year. We'll see how things go. I'm optimistic that God will bless it.
What else can I share? Hmmm.... My anxiety and paranoia have been dwindling a little bit. I'm not sure if I talked about them with you. It can be exhausting to be so paranoid and fearful all the time. I'm working on trusting God more, no matter what happens. It's not easy, but I gotta do what I gotta do. Depression has been okay, I think. I'm managing better than I have in the past. I've learned a lot of coping skills from therapy. Having physical and mental illnesses can be tough. However, I am grateful to God that He makes me strong through my weaknesses. I was just reading 2 Corinthians 12 that talked about boasting in your weaknesses today. It was encouraging.
Oh! Duh. My church had a Troas Night last night (hence the title of this post). We stayed up until midnight, learning about the Holy Spirit. It was really encouraging and enlightening. Troas was a city that Paul went to and preached all night long. I don't think we would have survived if we stayed up till dawn. Lol. But it was really cool to spend time with my brothers and sisters.
Do you go to church? Do you read the Bible? What is something God has been teaching you? He's been teaching me to trust in Him and stand firm in His promises. I've been using this Bible app called YouVersion. It's been super helpful.
I'm also having surgery soon. Pray for me. I have to get my wisdom teeth extracted. I'm not too excited about that. I have to be knocked out for the surgery. Never been through that before so I'm a little nervous. Please keep me in your prayers. I have to see my primary care physician on Wednesday about my heart. Lyme has infected it and caused irregular heartbeats and palpitations. The oral surgeon wants me to check to make sure my heart won't do anything crazy when they put me under. It should be interesting. Lol. Wish me luck!
Well, that's all I have to share today. I'll see you guys on Tuesday! Much love!
