This weekend was much deliberated. I didnt know what to do. I had to remind myself of my old message i gave once at IV about making decisions and not becoming self consumed with planning things. If we work too hard on deciding, we could’ve spent all those thoughts/minutes on someone besides ourselves..
Hard choice: Option 1 : go home and see Dave before he leaves for around the world, hug dad, mom and micah, see phil keaggy and take friends to niagara falls.
Hard choice Option 2: stay here and get stuff done and take it easy and try to recover from insane crazy conferences, working and everything, go to a sweet concert. and then sunday, either go to church and a road trip to a congolese church in NH or hear RAVI ZACHARIAS speak.
decision: stay here.
last night i put Zeke to bed (little guy i was sitting for) early and then invited theresa and ryan to spank me at monopoly. that was sad but fun. then today i woke up, got a little more organized (slightly), made omelets and had long discussions via videochat with:
Camille in India
learned about how to pray for her this holiday season.
Kevin in China
hadnt seen my old friend in months. i miss the boy.
Sami in Palestine
my dear old friend promised to let me say hi to my old kiddos at houseofhopemd.org
Henry in Kenya
we had a LOT to talk about, and more still to go–but at least we started a google tasks listing. Amazing, right?
