Living our (busy) lives with others (him)

I’m a terrible blogger. (She) has been reminding me that I made a commitment to do this with her. It’s partly because I’m not naturally inclined to remembering (anything…in general), but on top of that, I’m SO busy. Juggling two jobs, church commitments, and most importantly time with my family is, well, I’ll give an equation. My used time in the week = 24 * 7 – (approx 8 hours). The eight hours is 4 hours on Wed night and 2 hours each on Saturday and Sunday that I can (somewhat selfishly) squeeze out for myself. ((She) probably gets less than that.) So that’s 4.7% of the week not spoken for and here’s my key to sanity…

I give half of that on Wednesday nights. (She) said it right, we get energized around people. Not that it’s not sometimes stressful or tiring to have people over on Wednesday nights, but the conversation, hanging out, and entertaining others inexplicably rejuvinates me. I’m so thankful for each and every person that comes to share a meal with us. I’d say the need to connect with others (and God) is one of the central characteristics of humans and it’s great to get a little closer to someone every Wednesday night.

We’re looking forward to some new guests next Wednesday. By the way, if you’re reading this, you’re welcome to stop on by. Shoot us an email and we’ll give you directions.
