And so it begins . . . .

The mental conversation in my head of late has gone something like this:

Uhhhh, you work in ministry full time now.

Really?This is what I get paid to do?

Yep, this is your job, your profession, you know . . . your work.

No way, I get paid to do something I love?

Yup.

SWEET.

It's crazy. CRAZY. I'm doing ministry . . . full-time . . . for my job. Really people, I'm tripping out on this. I mean if you talked with me a year ago this is not at all where I thought I would be, oh it is exactly where I wanted to be but heck no I didn't think that I would actually get to do what I want, what my heart wants. And now I do . . . I'm in ministry . . . me. And yes, I know some of you will think, well of course, we knew that, but I didn't and I kinda still don't. I'm so thankful for it and I'm so blessed by it but I'm still trying to make sure that this isn't some extended dream sequence that I will wake up from and have that sinking feeling that it was all just a dream.

Ok, sorry I'm still a bit in a daze of realizing this is now my reality and getting settled in all the new stuff. I plan on getting back to the "You shaped Me" post that I mentioned a few back, it's all up in my head but just needs to get down on paper, or screen as it may be.

On another note, I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and fill yourself with all kinds of yummy treats and get some good time with family and friends.

I didn't stay tonight long enough to get a chance to talk to you... I am so excited that you love your new job!

I also realized that I recently sent you an email, but that it went to your old work email... can you please email the CMG's tomorrow and let us know how the heck we can email you???

Katie's cool.

God knows it... and so he blessed you with a really cool position... working for Him.

How cool is that?

If I were Him, I would have hired you too... but I am not... (which is a good thing) so I am just glad that He continues to look out for you. ;)
