Living our (busy) lives with others(her)

Life has been full. Four kids alone are enough to keep me pretty occupied, and yet we have more going on than that. Luckily, we both get energized by people, because we have seen a lot of people lately…

Last Friday night was the Young Life banquet, which I think went very well. The committee did a fabulous job of planning the event and it was a lot of fun. Yesterday we had five new youth at Club. Speaking of which, we are now having Club every week. On Thursday’s I have been taking teens to Voice Box, an open mic poetry slam happening at the Paul Engels Center Thursday nights at nine (you should check it out). My young friends have really enjoyed it and several have stepped up to the mic. Last Saturday we met our church’s pastoral candidate and his wife for the first time and then we had them over for lunch on Sunday. We really enjoyed getting to know them and I’ll admit that I am really hoping God has a place for them here. I love our church’s vision and heart and being a part of it all has been a tremendous experience. Family dinners have been going well. I am actually pretty excited about tonight because we invited some new people and I love that. It’s been awesome sharing meals with people. (He) is passionate about bringing all of our circles together, so we have church friends, friends from work, people from the neighborhood (and wherever else), over for dinner. I love it. Myself and another have been working to put together a youth ministry proposal for Imago and excited doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel about that. Yesterday was the last MOPS meeting of the year. Sad. But I am eager to crack open the 2009 MOPS cookbook; there are over 1,100 recipes in that thing! This morning a friend came over and we chatted while the kidos played (or whinnied at us). Despite all the doing, I don’t feel spread thin. In fact, I have enjoyed some pretty sweet moments in recent days. Monday night after the core team meeting we had the pastoral candidate and his wife and another couple over and just talked. We ended our evening in prayer and it was just another awesome time of fellowship and friendship. I’ve said this often, but I love that church isn’t just a Sunday activity for us anymore. Just love it. We might be busy, but I love that we are living our lives with others.
