Had a busy day today.
Kind've weird...went and cleaned out my office at the church this morning. It was neat to find papers, projects, ideas, and agendas from 4 years of ministry and be reminded that God has been so thickly present in our time at Wadsworth.
In our victories and our failures.
In our moments of stellar brilliance and our moments of less than stellar brilliance.
I am amazed that this church we've called home and have tried to serve faithfully and wholeheartedly over the last few years has given us a survival window. So many on our unit have been let go of their jobs, and yet our church has taken care of us in incredible ways to bridge the gap for us as we head toward Columbus in 2012.
Bittersweet to think about our time ending with the Saints at Wadsworth UMC.
On the hospital front: Chaia is ok. I am so proud of her in this because there is contentment and joy when there really shouldn't be.
This kid is marked by God. I don't know where this story is going and of course I have parental bias, but I really see Chaia's life being leveraged for the glory of God in significant ways (as it already has.)
Tomorrow, December 1 is Chaia's 5 month birthday.
Hopefully we'll have a celebration to share with you.
Shaina and I need your prayers. This road is long. And tonight it seems uphill.
