i logged into my blog this morning to write a quick little update. i thought it had been a few weeks since i’d filled you in on my super exciting life. then i realized my last post was july 28th. wowzas. sorry ’bout that.
let’s see if i can catch you up on the last few months. they’ve been filled with road trips and weddings and events that have been good for my spirit and completely exhausting at the same time. for some reason i thought that when summer ended things would slow down. now i find myself nine days into october and there isn’t much of a break on the horizon. thanksgiving might bring a lull. maybe. but i’ve learned to make the most of the quiet moments i do have while doing my best to embrace the chaos when it comes. i’m still perfecting the art of learning to be quiet in the midst of the noise. even so, i’m happy and content and beyond blessed by the life i live. no complaints from this girl. at least not today.
this morning i find myself in my perfect yellow chair i picked up from an antique store. i’m sipping coffee next to my open window. the air is cool and the cinnamon candle burning reminds me that fall is in the air. last night i had dinner with some dear friends and rested while they worshipped. their songs were transferred to my computer and are serving as church today. it’s a good day to enjoy the small things that often times get lost in my busy schedule of relationships, responsibilities and the whole changing-the-world-thing i’m working on.
so while i’m enjoying the smaller things in life today you can get caught up on where i’ve been and what i’ve been doing. if you promise to get yourself up to speed on my life i’ll promise to not go seventy three days without an update. ever again. really. promise.
at the beginning of august i trekked thirteen hours with kelly and jordan up to chicago for the jesus culture awakening conference. my bff met us up there, so it was great to spend some time with her, too. we were unaware that the conference would mostly be filled with thousands of high schoolers but enjoyed it nonetheless.
a few of us spent one of the last days of summer at the river. we hiked and swam and a few brave souls jumped off a cliff. it was fun day of adventure that will definitely need to be replicated.
|my co-worker robby and i had the privilege of spending a week at mississippi college for their mission fair. we met with all kinds of incredible students, shared with them about the passport and about our own experiences on the world race. we were tired by the time we got home, but really enjoyed our time with them.
the last few months have also included a world race reunion/conference, watching my friend and co-worker weston tie the knot, nights in the hammock, a staff picnic, and a trip to florida for my world race teammate’s wedding.
