Life is...one big to-do list

Again, it's been awhile since I've last posted. There's just been so much going on!

  • The 175th (+1) celebration concert at church consumed me for about three weeks. But it was a success! I just hate that I didn't get any pictures, but there is video! As soon as I get a chance to work on that, I'll share some bits here.

  • The church youth's Amazing Race before that. That took some organizing time, but well worth it. The kids had a blast and the stories we got to hear at the end!

  • Auctions and all that entails.

  • Odd-jobs, and trying to drum-up business as well as cheering Bill on for a career-change.

  • Friends' and family drama.

  • Church goings-on.

  • Pro-bono wedding video and pictures to still be done.

  • Crocheting a baby blanket plus three other projects.

  • Reading about 5 books - combination of business and Christian, plus one biography on Eleanor of Aquitaine (ancient royal history).

  • Housecleaning - lots of purging going on with closets.

  • Bible study groups - I'm a part of one mixed group, one women's group, and I think we're going to another mixed group this week.

  • Personal God-time. I've made the change to starting my day with God. I sit at my kitchen table with all the windows around me and just ask God to teach me something new in His word, and He does! I get to watch the sun come up and just start the day right and that sticks with me for a long time through the day.

  • Support group night - can't really count it as Bible study, but it still amazes me how real people can be in there versus in church.

  • Got to have my facebook game-time.

  • Then there's eating, although I can play games on the computer while I eat, or read.

  • And finally - sleeping! During those weeks of working on the concert I didn't get much sleep, maybe 4 or 5 hours a night. I can proudly say I am making up for it now!

And through all that - which is nothing compared to anyone who has children - I am trying to be intentional with ministry. Basically, ministering to anyone who has a need, and that could be you. Bill and I have been given opportunities to just be servants wherever God places us, and that it simply awesome. Have you ever been in a place where you just feel blessings and "enlarging of territory" coming your way?

I'll be writing more soon enough. Thanks for visiting!

Grace & Peace to y'all!

And I thought I was busy! I thought technology was supposed to free up time for us--instead, now we are multitasking like crazy! :)
