Hey Readers!! I am finally settled in at Carswell. And I have so much to be thankful for. If I ever thought I was at church camp… it is now! We get to be outside all day long. I don’t have a job yet so I am just soaking up the sun…relaxing… feeding the squirrels out of my hand. I have been walking the track in the mornings, praying and singing. The track goes down by the lake. Yes… we have our own lake and this morning the fish were jumping around.
I joined the church choir. The religious library is awesome. I can watch sermons on my free time and there is a piano I can play on as well. I haven’t played in years but I’m sure it will come right back to me.
Well let me tell y’all about this place. It really does not feel like a prison at all. The housing is like an old motel. I share a room with 2 other women. We have our own air conditioning, a bathroom with a tub and shower, and a little kitchenette with a sink and counter. The campus is not fenced in like the medical center. We have he freedom to walk off the base if we dare…but of course the escape charges are not worth that!
We have 3 different workout rooms, a weight room, a leisure library and a religious library. The religious library has walls and walls of sermons by TD Jakes, Kenneth Copeland and Joyce Meyers. I can go watch them on my free time. There is a track to walk on and a softball field, soccer field, and 2 volleyball courts. Oh, and horse shoes of course!
The food is great here. We had french toast and sausage for breakfast on Labor Day and pork chops for dinner! That was the holiday meal-but the other meals have been real good as well. It’s a good thing they have a workout room…cause I might just gain a few pounds the way I’m eating. I don’t have a job yet but when I do I will write all about it.
God is so good. And I give Him all the glory for all the good things in my life right now. “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” (I Thess 5:16-18)
