So, it's been a couple weeks without the quick takes! My goodness friends in blogging world, life has been crazy busy, but crazy good. I anticipated September and October were going to be a bit of a wild ride and I anticipated correct. Yesterday was John Paul's 1st year well check up and instead of telling the doctor I was a SAHM, I said I do part time work in ministry. Gotta admit reality my friends. #truthshallsetyoufree
We finally are getting recordings of our presentation (hey, lemme know if you want to see what we do!), and that is a lovely thing. What's not so lovely is watching yourself give presentations. So, apparently, I say 'right?' every thirty two seconds. It's so annoying, it's a wonder I have been able to make this a part-time job! #gottaworkonthat
Let's talk synod for a second. I could go OFF if I wanted to on two camps of people who done ticked me off. I could go off and name names of people who I think are completely missing the point. I could go OFF about the amount of stupid articles that were shared on 'the interwebs', articles making my blood boil. But, instead I will just say this. I found the tension of the synod on the family refreshing. We are living in fascinating times, in our post-Christian culture and anyone who thinks this doesn't call for a new type of evangelization- is completely missing the point. I find it comforting that even at the highest levels of theological thought, there is a 'messiness' when it comes to figuring out how to best love people. Even at the highest levels, there is a 'messiness' present when living in the tension of adapting to culture with our language, and yet still preserving unchangeable doctrine. Sometimes, those of us who adhere to the doctrine of the Church, we think we've got it all figured out. But, frankly we don't. Learning to love people is a heart-stretching activity...and I think the synod fathers showed us that. #loveismessy
Aaron doesn't know his letters. Well, he can say them, but doesn't recognize or write them yet. He is 3.5 years. On a scale of 1-10 how much of an issue is this? #helpasisterout
