lately…

Little snapshots of life and thought lately:

– Phil and I did our first wheatgrass shots this past Saturday. We’re crazy kids I know…but for real it tasted like grass, and nothing else. Surprise.

– Our church did Advent Conspiracy this year and ended up giving $25,000 to help start a ministry for children with special needs at our church, to support my friend Krissy and her friends starting an AIDS orphanage in Cambodia, to our local non-profit that works in the Bensley community, and to our 17 missionaries serving around the world. I could not be more proud and thankful for the community God has placed us in.

– Phil and I moved…downstairs. So come hang out with us in the new digs, and perhaps help us put it together!

– I have been reading Ina Gaskins “Guide to Childbirth” all weekend and am completely taken with it. Sidenote- Not pregnant, just passionate about birth.

– I think there are few things more tragic than a suicidal child. Spending your evenings talking with a child about how they are thinking about jumping off a nearby bridge is terrifying.

– In the midst of the above sadness I am surrounded as well by beauty. I have so many friends getting engaged, bringing new life into the world, and being content in single life. It is a beautiful thing.

– We have roommates living upstairs, which is exciting! Living closer with people, and learning about community.

– We had our first visit from neighbors yesterday. It only lasted for about 30 minutes, but fun with American Girl dolls was had by all.
