Something has happened. In the last 2 weeks or so, my life has gotten alot more hectic! Growing up, all through my childhood and on into highschool, I moved non-stop. We always had an activity going on every single weekend and most week nights. When I went to college, I was shocked at all my free time. Even in our first year or so of marriage, I wasn't involved in any kind of weekly activity. It was strange for me to be at home every night! I've needed something to DO! Then, we moved to Houston, and getting re-settled here kept social things at a slow pace. But that is all about to change!
Wednesday was my birthday, and we went out for my birthday dinner. Thursday night Grant and I had dinner with our friends Tiffany & Justin. Friday night I had a date with my Lindsee (we saw Mamma Mia and ate some yummy yummy California Pizza Kitchen) and Saturday night we had dinner with our friends Kelly, Rob, Jessica & Brian. Well, let me rephrase that... Jessica, Kelly and I sat at one end of the table and had dinner together while Rob, Grant and Brian sat at the other end of the table and had dinner together. There wasn't much mingling between the men and the women. At one point the girls and I stopped talking about what the Lord was doing in our life and tuned into what the guys were talking about: the TV show "Jackass" (Can I say that word on here?!) But that is neither here nor there. Back to my point.... I had some sort of social activity 4 nights in a row. That has been pretty unheard of lately.
At work, I have pretty much doubled my responsibilities. One of my co-workers quit and I have taken on her position, as well as fulfilling my own. It has been challenging and my days go by much quicker but I am busy busy busy at the office. I also enjoy the view from my office window (Saks Fifth Avenue!!).
Now, starting this week, my weekday evening are about to get more full. God has revealed some great ministry opportunities for me and I am SO glad to be involved with them! Starting this Wednesday I will be serving with the Kids Choir at our church... I am not sure exactly what my role is yet, but I don't care. I just want to be there and serve. After Kid's Choir each week, I will then go and be blessed yet again to serve in the Adult Choir. I miss singing and I am so glad I will get to be part of the awesome worship ministry that God has blessed our church with. Also, beginning in the fall, I will be spending my Tuesday nights assisting with the Houston Children's Chorus. (That is THREE choirs! Goodness gracious!)
As I said, somehow, I just got busy! I'm excited though. I do better when I have alot to do. It is when things get really really slow that I procrastinate and focus on the negative. When things are moving fast, I don't have time to whine or complain.
I have been praying these last few days that the Lord would continue to reveal to me where He wants me to be and how I can be more glorifying to Him. I am so excited about all of these new opportunities and am looking forward to the things that Jesus is going to teach me and the joy I will have as I serve Him! :) YAY for new things!!
Have a great evening, friends!
