i know, i know...

i'm sucking at the blogging thing. but i'm okay with that...you can't be good at everything.

here's the deal--i'm still in a-town. i'll move my stuff to cola a week from today, then take a little trip with the midtown crew to atlanta, then i'll be down there for real on the 30th. so, you've all still got the opportunity to squeeze in some quality time before i'm really gone...(that sounds so final, but you know what i mean.)

life has been both busy and sorta boring lately. by that i mean that there has been a lot to do--job hunting, getting all my stuff sorted out for the move, etc., etc. but at the same time, it has been really odd to not be working and seeing people on a regular basis. i've realized that i seriously couldn't handle not working (in some form) for long. i'm bored. i'm so ready to be in cola, working, doing the whole church plant thing full force.

but of course, i'm also getting more and more sad about leaving everyone the closer the move date gets. it's gonna be tough. but i just can't ignore the fact that God has called me there. He really is working things out. and He is just full of surprises...i love His surprises. so i'm moving with the knowledge that it's gonna be hard in some ways, but it's also gonna be the most amazing thing i've ever been a part of.

so, there's a whole lot that i'm leaving out...you'll just have to use your imagination.

this week feels like...

summer vacation. back in high school. and there's this realization that school is starting back really soon and i am transferring to a whole new district. (not that i have ever actually experienced that...but it seems like what it would feel like.) i've been sleeping a little late, hanging out with the parents and friends, and trying to wrap my mind around the fact that i am leaving here shortly...

don't get me wrong. i'm ridiculously excited. in fact, i'm ready to be in cola right now...can't wait to see things unfold down there.

but i'm also a little nervous. will the cool kids ask me to eat with them at lunch? will people like me? will i find new friends? will i be able to let go of the dreams/hopes that might be tied up here in a-town?

even though this is a somewhat accurate description of how i'm feeling...i'm also totally confident of what He's gonna do through me, the people i'm going to cola with, and midtown. i'm human. i'm insecure. i have no idea what is to come. and really, that is what excites me the most. i just get to step out on faith, watch Him bring it all together, and give Him every bit of the glory. i don't think there's anything sweeter than that.
