I didn’t post last week because my room was in disarray, but all of my things are now in the house and I’m gradually sorting through them. I did not anticipate how much I would miss writing. I think it gives me a great deal of direction.
Our Sunday School class was focused on asking what does Sunday School and Church mean to you, and how would you describe that to someone who hasn’t been there. In worship, we celebrated the blessing of the backpacks, which is to provide school supplies to those who cannot afford them. I was surprised to learn that we were putting off the sermon on the mount, but at the end I had the opportunity to share about Starting Point, and once I finished speaking I was surprised at how quickly I was done.
Generally, I’ve had a lot of stress this week because it seems when I’m not at work, I’m working on unpacking. I’m going through everything as fast as I can because I want to make the room I moved my bed to my own space, and have everything else together. Perhaps I’ve put a greater burden on my shoulders than necessary.
As for last week, I got a bill with a ridiculous late fee that I was able to get straightened out, and decided to make it a positive by getting more aggressive about tackling my debt. I mentioned this to Dan, and he said he’d heard some advice was to pay on Debt A, B, and C, and once A is paid off, apply the money that was going out to B, then when B is settled, pay both A and B’s amount on C. It’s a strategy I look forward to implementing.
Also last week, Matt shared that his and Lacey’s adoption was a success. I haven’t seen them at church together for about a month, but apparently that must’ve been because they were spending time with their baby. I don’t think I could be any happier for them.
Looking toward next month, I’m excited for concerts coming up and a week long vacation. In the meantime, I just need to hang in there.
