the week that was but is no more

things i did: began the house packing process; read through dozens of mortgage papers; read through mortgage papers again; had an awesome, super encouraging b-fast meeting with a youth pastor friend; re-researched the biblical roles of men and women in the church; attended a young adult ministry planning meeting; helped develop community with our young adult small group; visited a friend in the hospital; complained a lot; took pastor vince out to lunch; began reading Refuel by doug fields (bought one for each of our adult leaders); spent monday evening with a very good friend (jack bauer)

stuff i procrastinated: message prep for speaking in "big church" on 2/15; personal time with God; prayer; speaking prep for men's ministry speaking engagement; scheduling a dentist appointment

emotions i felt: confused (while reading mortgage papers); weirdly nervous (before member meeting presentation); misunderstood; discouraged; joyful; overwhelmed (from the server migration at work and the mounting to do list); pumped (about 15 quiet time journals were picked up on thursday night in response to first H.A.B.I.T.S. message); frustration; thankful

glimpses of joy: get to team teach with shanna tomorrow on sex, lust, and dating; watched our adult leaders interact and build community together in some meaningful ways; house purchase proceeding moving along well; reconnected with some teens that haven't been to ISM in a long time; some of the best commercials of all time are only a few hours away
