A Week at a Time | 12/2/16

When life gets crazy or exciting or overwhelming or things change, I write. It’s always been this way for me. And so as an extension of this, I am going to have a weekly, “here’s a little bit of life”, post. From working in college ministry to life as a part time nanny. Date nights and soccer games on the weekends. Reading and drinking coffee and squeezing in a run. Just taking a moment to look back at what the week has brought me before plunging into that all so wonderful weekend!


Back to that college ministry work grind before the Christmas break. We have one last event where we are talking about what is happening around the world, and promoting our annual trip to Austria next summer. So it’s just a few more busy weeks before settling into the goodness of Christmas time. Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 12/2/16”

It’s been a cleansing week. With my work schedule being lighter then I expected it to be, I have had time to tackle some life things. I have this elusive extra room at my house that has been sitting unused and so has accumulated things. Having lived here for over two years now, it’s a bit embarrassing. As someone who loves the feeling of knowing I could put everything I own into my car and be on my way, this just doesn’t fit. So I am getting rid of some serious stuff. Organizing paperwork and having a place for every little thing that I must keep and getting the rest out of the house and out of my life. It is incredibly therapeutic and so freeing.

This week started with my Dad taking a trip to the emergency room with a stroke. And so my week consisted of cutting back to minimal hours at work and spending all my time at the hospital. So grateful that, as strokes go, it was minor. Still waiting for answers as to why this happened, but praying for grace to rest even if we don’t get answers. It’s been a week of hard conversations, but also so much sweet laughter and conversations with family. So thankful to every person who sent their love and who came out to visit. We really are blessed to be surrounded by such dear people.  Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 11/4/16”

With two big events this week for the college ministry, it’s been a lot of running! Costume contest Tuesday and game night Thursday. So today, I am ready for the weekend. Both were a blast and it was fun to see what everyone came dressed up as! Two girls came dressed up as me. That’s always fun! Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 10/28/16”

This week has been one of continual reminders of why I do what I do, and I have needed that. It has been a week of encouragement and just a keen sense of gratefulness for the people who I am really blessed to be surrounded with. After last week just feeling stuck and frustrated and so over it, this week has been the biggest breath of fresh air. Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 10/21/16”
