50 Days


I'm a bit shocked.

It's been 50 days since my last post. My apologies!

Here's what's up with my life!

Marriage...
...is going excellently! Peter and I are clearly God-matched and it is beautiful. We try to honor each other always and it pays off. Even when we get tired or cranky, we are keeping our eyes on putting each other first, and when we stumble in that, God has given us grace for each other. These past three and a half months have been awesome!

Work...
...is great! I love my job. For those of you who don't know, I was promoted to Administrator at my church when I came back to work after getting married. Every day I have to do something different, and because of the size of our church I get to wear a lot of different hats--Secretary, Editor, Webmaster, Social Networker, Graphic Designer, Marketer, Event Planning, Accountant, Snack Bar Stocker, Gopher, Techie, Video Film & Editing, etc. etc.! Definitely keeps me on my toes!

WorshipArts...
...is also going really well! Peter leads this program for middle school and high school students, where he teaches  "worship and ministry education." If you haven't been already, you should totally check out the website, www.worshipartscentral.com. We have 16 students, divided into 3 bands, and it keeps Peter very busy! On top of the group lessons, Peter also teaches about 7 students private lessons. We were praising God this week because we realized his 20+ hours of actual teaching time a week is earning him the equivalent of working full-time at a minimum wage job! Meaning he won't have to get another job!! This is a huge answer to prayer!

After those three categories, I don't have too much other time. I've been trying to see friends occasionally, and I'm slowly learning how to take care of a home. My current personal struggle has been finding out how to do everything from a mindset of peace instead of striving. I'm trying to figure out the balance between living life to the fullest by spending my time with people I love and on things I'm passionate about, and taking care of responsibilities. I'm learning it isn't right to put dishes and laundry above quality time with loved ones...but I know those things still need to get done... It's quite the balance to try and find!

I'm glad you're back and doing alright! I loved the last part about learning to do things in peace instead of striving- what a great lesson!
