alt. worship and preschool aerobics

Well I haven't shared anything recently because honestly I've been busier than I care to even admit. Work is busy busy, we're in crunch time and I have a lot to get done in the next few weeks. Hopefully it will all get done. I'm just going to have to trust that it will, and work really hard.

Last week I had the opportunity to lead preschool music for our VBS. Holy cow did I not know what I was getting into. It was fun, but it is definitely not something I will say yes to again. I definitely admire the people in my life who love kids in that age group and are able to put up with them in large groups, but that is definitely not one of my gifts. I know I did a pretty good job at it, but just because you do well at something doesn't mean that it is your gift. I guess now I know that Children's Ministry as a focus is never an option. I'm definitely called to working with youth and adults. I did teach lots of new songs and have lots of fun with them, but oh goodness did it wear me out.

I have lots of other things on my plate right now as well. On Saturday morning, two of my great friends from Albuquerque who have done SO SO much to make me feel at home here and really do take amazing care of me are headed off to Ohio so that one of them can attend seminary. I'm going to miss them very much and have lots of send offs and goodbyes in the next few days with them. It is awesome that they are moving on to do such great things, but I will miss them a whole lot. They have done so much for me (they feed me on a regular basis, let me babysit their adorable child whom I love dearly, loaned me their car for a couple of months, let me do my laundry at their house, to just name a few) that they will definitely not be replaced. I might find people to fill in with some of those things, but Jeremy, Daen and Gavin will certainly make for some great memories of Albuquerque for me.

Tonight I met with some counterculture friends and joined the planning team for our worship arts night. Those of you that know me know I led alternative worship services at the Wesley Foundation in college, so I'm really excited to jump into this and give people a taste of a worship style that really fits me. Don't get me wrong, I love corporate worship, but there are some times where I just need contemplative reflection time and the ability to remind myself that worship should be an ongoing individual thing as well. I'm really excited to see how this all comes together, I'm certain I'll blog more about it in the future.

Coming soon, a year in review... can you believe that Friday is my 1 year anniversary of being in ABQ? I can't.
