thanks for the prayers and thoughts, friends.
The last post was just me being shocked by some news about a friend. Everything is fine--at least I think it is. I've heard from her and while I'm still shocked, at least I know it's for real.
In the meantime, it's been a busy weekend! An APNC hosted 6-month party for me (except I've been here 8 months now...) which was awesome, a birthday party for one of the youth leaders which was also awesome, Memorial Day parade which was surprisingly short and pleasant, and a memorial day/kitty birthday party that moved location due to unforeseen circumstances (and therefore was not a kitty bday party), also awesome. Less awesome: church member that fell from a ladder in a tree (with a chainsaw!) and broke his hip. highly awesome: that he didn't get more hurt. small miracles.
Hope all is well...I have to go get busy for this week now! Worship schedule changes this Sunday, lots to do. Church picnic this Sunday--even more to do! youth group car wash this Saturday, lots to do. In other words...busy-ness ahead!
