  • Mood:


For some reason, I've been in coffee shop mode this week. That gets pricey to sustain, so hopefully I'll return to moderation soon.

With Easter, volunteer scheduling, and Intro class prep behind me, there's a bit more margin at work, leaving room to dig into developing our relationships with local service agencies a bit more. It's different work than my other tasks, because it's not ever really "completed" in a traditional sense. Instead, I have to try to define some benchmarks and milestone, ways to measure our standing and progress as we go along. My goal is to identify three spotlight service agencies (with whom we have active and growing relationships) and at least one more committee meeting (regardless of who attends) before our church offsite in June. It's exciting to see this area take on some definition and become more a part of the church's culture.

We've been pretty socially active over the past few weeks, too. In some ways, I think my social endurance is improving, in part because of how intentional we've been—why we're doing what we're doing definitely affects how much I'm willing to do and how energizing (or draining) it is for me. We're spending time with some of the people who are important to us, and that feels good.

It's almost our first wedding anniversary—crazy!
