so...things have been quite wonderful lately. complicated in some respects, but still really good. i have awesome friends. i get to attend and work for a growing, amazing church. and i am learning a lot. (there's too much other cool stuff to would be the longest post ever.)

for those of you who don't know, new spring is in the middle of a capital campaign to raise the money for phase 1 of our building program. God has had his hand on every aspect of this church from the very beginning. it is so exciting to be a part of this incredible work of God!

one major part of the capital campaign consists of several dinners for people in the church. they come and eat, listen to perry cast the vision for the future, and ask any questions that they may have about the plans. i've been to a few of these parties already, so i've heard perry's "talk" several times. however, last night he made one statement that i had not heard or thought of before. he was talking about the baptism area in the new building...and how we would be able to see so many people baptized in that spot in the future. friends. people we had invited to church. family. children.

children. it's funny that i hadn't really thought of this already, since having kids is such a huge part of what i know i was designed to do. my children will grow up going to new spring (unless, of course, God moves us somewhere else). wow. i was distracted by this thought for the rest of the time perry was talking...seeing my kids be baptized? oh my freakin' goodness. really, that excites me more than just about anything else i can imagine (other than the whole marriage thing). good stuff...i just wanted to share.
