Life Being Different

2010/10/25

Its been a while.

And Life has been a lot.

First thing, I love my family.  Not only because I’m supposed to, but instead because I want to.  My son is now 16 months old and has become a terror.  But I’ve never loved a terror like this.   It used to be that when he was in trouble we would run over and slap his hand.  In the last 4 months or so, this has, to Samuel, become a fun game.  If he grabs an electrical outlet, or gets into the dishwasher or stuff hes not supposed too, I run over and slap his hand. His reaction is a smile, shaking his head as if saying no, and then pointing at me and laughing… what a kid

My wife  is the strongest person I know.  She has gone through more pain in the last few months then I could imagine going through myself, and still supports people and makes others the priority.  She has also decided to go headfirst into homemaking.  She has an amazing blog that I encourage any woman to read.

And for me I finally am working at a church again.  Its east hill in downtown gresham.  The relationship with this church is a lot healthier.  The best way I have come up with why is because before i was offered my position, the Senior Pastor sat with me to make sure I understood that the only way my relationship with the church would work is if I was willing to hold him accountable.  That when I saw something I disagreed with, part of my job as a staff member is to hold him accountable.

I have an office and I work full time and have a schedule that is the same week to week.  My wife and I are home in the evenings together, and we only need childcare 1 day a week (by the way if anyone knows someone when it comes to childcare, please email me Ryanm@easthill.org)

Now life sounds good but its not perfect.  taking over for someone whom was only beloved but also honored isnt easy.  And I think I’m starting (even though its only been 2 weeks) to feel a little bit of strain from some of the volunteers.  But it has been a very rough week in my personal life so maybe I’m just being sensitive.

Also this transition stuff has shown me that my friends are few.  Not because there was a blow up but because we arent around what they are around.  its become work to have friends.  And I never remember it being work before.

I know this is short and random but I just wanted to say hello and give an update to my life. 

I love you
