the Waiting Game
Well, I know it has been a long over due update but not much is going on. I feel like I am just in a waiting phase. Do you know what I mean? I keep preparing for stuff, and planning for stuff that won’t happen until…well until someone else does something. Waiting on other people, other committees, the church, and time itself. I feel like it should be fall already, at least October. I really wish it was fall, and then maybe we could get out of these 100 degree days.
We are still waiting to find out where the church will move us when they tear down our house, which is supposed to happen by Oct. 1st. If you wonder why we are waiting, it is because our housing is part of our salary here, which is awesome and means we can stay in Highland Park instead moving out to Rockwall (45 min away) like most of our staff. So, we wait.
Also, our church is kicking off a new Sunday morning schedule with a new children’s ministry program, which we are so excited about. We are going to an hour of Sunday class instead of a 90 min. Sunday class, who wouldn’t be happy? But it doesn’t start for a couple of weeks, at which time I will gain a middle school teacher (YEAH for Summer) who is our new youth volunteer…let me rephrase that, ONLY youth volunteer! Which we are so excited about! So, we wait.
And last, our offices still have not been restored. Six months after the flood we are still crowded into a classroom. But plans are in work and hopefully before they tear down the youth house, we will be able to have offices because where our temporary offices are is where the youth are going to meet when the house is torn down. So, we wait.
I am so sick of waiting.
