eight eighteen

So I haven’t been able to write much lately, and that makes me sad. Writing is like medicine for my soul, so I hate it when life does not afford me the time to do it. The past few weeks have probably been the most crazy, most unhealthy time of my recent past. I’m really glad they are over. Last night I got frustrated because I realized how long its been since I’ve had any kind of Sabbath…so I decided to stick it to the man and stay up all night to have a Sabbath! It actually was pretty good, although not quite the same when you’re having to fight to stay awake. I didn’t make it all the way…I wimped out around 4:30am. I’m glad though because things seem to be calming down a bit now. As much as I hate moving with a fiery passion, we are finally situated in our new house and we couldn’t possibly love it more. It is just perfect for us and we feel extremely blessed. There has been a lot going on lately elsewhere as well:

*Last week at lifegroup we had an intentional “confess and repent” night. It was really really good.

*I’m realizing more and more what God has been teaching me over the past year. A lot of really tough stuff, but very freeing. I’m starting to be able to actually be thankful for it. But even more so, I’m praying that I won’t forget it because I don’t want to have to learn it again!

*Move-In Day Saturday was so awesome. Very good relational family time serving our city.

*My friend Luis continues to blow me away with the change in his heart.

*600 people at the Gathering Sunday night? Jesus please help us!

I’m feeling really content right now. Jesus is so very good. I’m ready to take on the next few weeks with some life in my soul and after tonight, some rest under my eyelids. I don’t remember the last time I went to bed before 11:30, but I know I am excited about it tonight!
