Moving on the Hottest Day of the Year! YUCK!

Todays been a crazy day. My dad headed to B town and then we loaded my U-Haul. We hit the road early evening and made it half way. Lets just say my car, the back of my dad's pickup and the 4 X 8 trailer are packed as tight as they will go. Insanity! Im looking forward to getting settled in a new place but moving can be such a pain. And besides I must have picked the hottest day in the world to move. Well Im off to bed. Dad and I are going to get up early and finish the trip. I will let you know more once Im settled. Hope you are all staying cool! God bless!

Friday Five On a Hot Friday!

1. Share a moment/ time of real encouragement in your journey of faith--That was definetely when I went to seminary. My seminary friends encouraged me so much and helped me to realize my calling. Also during seminary, I struggled. One of my fave moments is when a professor told my candicacy committee, that it took a lot of guts to stick with it. He was like you know how easy it would have been for T to walk out the door, but she hasnt...she has stuck with it.

2. Do you have a current vision / dream for your work/ family/ministry? To start at my new call and to work together to create a strong family and youth program.

3.Money is no object and so you will.....Pay off my bills, start my own publishing company, help the camp I worked at for seven summers, visit some friends, etc

4. How do you see your way through the disappointments? What keeps you going? I usually cry. Im an emotional person and crying helps me. I also like to vent to my friends and family, write poetry, etc.

5. How important are your roots? Very...they have made me the person I am!

6. Bonus= what would you like to add ? Since Im moving and starting a new call, my question is what is your least fave thing about moving? and your fave thing about moving?

Finally

So for all of you that have been waiting, I finally can tell you the news. I've accepted a new call to serve in NW MN. Im really excited for this new opportunity. I cant even tell you how excited I am! So this week Im busy packing etc...so dont know when Ill be able to post again so if I go missing for awhile dont worry Ill be back. I took vacation last week and it was fabulous. I got to go to camp for the first half of the week and then the second half was at the Sonshine Music Festival. I helped a good friend chaperone. What a blast! Lets just say I got to see some of my fave Christian artists all in one spot. All I have to say is this---Jeremy Camp, Switchfoot, Skillet, Relient K, Kutless, Thousand Foot Krutch, TobyMac, Newsboys, David Crowder Band, Peter Eide and others!

Daydreaming....

Im in the office all alone today. Its been quiet. The phone hasnt even rung. So thought Id post a new blog entry. Besides I dont really have anything else to do. Life is good. I'm going to take some vacation time next week. I just dont know what Im going to do. I would love to go visit some seminary friends but my car is not the most reliable. Maybe I just need to rent a car and go away somewhere. This weekend Im heading out to Super Awesome Bible Camp because they have their quilt auction. Im telling myself that I cannot buy anymore quilts but doesnt always seem to work. I usually end up coming back with at least one...LOL! So what is everyone else doing? Any big plans for the 4th? Any vacations planned? Well I suppose I should go do something productive but Im having more fun daydreaming about visiting friends etc. I miss you all so much!

Time for a Vacation!

You know its definetely time for a vacation. I was doing well but am starting to feel a little run down. Guess its just time for me to relax and catch my breath. I hope I am not coming down with something. I was feeling good but this afternoon started feeling nauseous, warm, headache etc. Im guessing that all my busyness with work etc is catching up with me. Good thing its a short week. I suppose Im going to have to check my temp when I get home. Hopefully no one else is feeling run down too!
