Mmmmkay. So this week was rather eventful. There were some good things and some bad things.
Thursday October 2
This night was deacon's meeting. And when I arrived that I would be on the agenda to present myself as a candidate for member-in-discernment status. I had planned on this happening next month, so I was a bit surprised and unprepared. But everything went well and they voted to accept me as a member-in-discernment. Yay!
So my next step in the ordination process is to go before a committee of the association in a few months.
Friday, October 3
I left my job waiting tables. I've been working way too much and I've been really stressed. I just couldn't do it anymore.
Sunday, October 5
I had a rear-end collision in my car. My Buick is now totaled.
Friday, October 10
I worked a double shift. Then about 1am Saturday morning, the cops bang on my door. My Buick had burst into flames and was engulfed. It is now completely destroyed.
Saturday, October 11
Gay marriage becomes legal in NC. What??
So that's where I'm at. It has been a roller coaster. I am still freaking out a bit about the car stuff. But I am certain about one thing. I'm where I need to be in terms of school and ministry. I really feel that I am doing the work that God has called me to. And so now I just need the strength to get through each day. Because it can be really tough.
