Arise - A Celebration Of Worship
Lots going on...
Work has been crazy, but good. Due to a maternity leave and other staffing situations, I will be taking on a larger role in preparation for holiday (Translation: it's basically the time frame from mid-October through mid-January when people are doing their Christmas shopping - and then using their gift cards after Christmas). So in addition to all of the holiday planning and execution for my normal job, I'm going to step up and do parts of this other role, which is actually one level above my current position. Plus, my boss is getting ready for her maternity leave in another two weeks, which means that I'll be taking on some of her responsibilities as well. It will be busy, but I think I'm up for the challenge. It will definitely be a learning opportunity, that's for sure. Plus, I really like my job overall, so it doesn't feel like a burden. (yet... )
Training for the 5K has begun, and has actually accelerated as Jamie's convinced me to run one that is a fundraiser for his school. The race is in October, and I was originally planning to train for a November race. However, depending on how things go, I may just run them both (think positive, right?!) I guess I didn't really realize how little I've worked out over the past few weeks...this week has been a little tough. But I definitely subscribe to the 'no pain, no gain' theory, because when I am sore afterwards, I know I've been kickin' it.
Diana's wedding is next weekend...please pray for my family, and for reconciliation. There is still much tension and many hurt feelings on multiple fronts. Don't want to get into any more details, but thanks in advance for your prayers.
Our Revelation Bible study starts again at church two weeks from tonight. Semester 3 begins! I know it seems long, but we only joined in semester 2, and I LOVE how in depth the class is. Our teacher is awesome, and is such a study of the Word. We just really like our church...the Arise CD I am listening to was actually recorded at our church (even though we weren't at the concert - bummer!). So cool|!
Ok, that's probably enough of an update for now... CHALLENGE: if you read my xanga but haven't ever left a comment, just say hi.
