This week I’ll just share the highlights …
Who I Connected With
I was able to spend Friday evening with my coauthor, Paralympian Deb Willows, share a meal, and work on our second book, tentatively titled Still Living Beyond My Circumstances.
What I Read
Chapter 8 of Francis Chan’s Crazy Love examines many ways people “obsessed with Jesus” behave. They “give freely and openly.” They “aren’t consumed with personal safety and comfort.” They “live lives that connect them with the poor.” On and on this list goes. I have been challenged and plan to prayerfully review this list often.
When I Got “the Call”
My doula client sent me a text between 11:00 and 11:30 Sunday morning saying she thought she was in early labour. Needless to say, I was on high alert awaiting the next text asking me to join her. Baby’s aren’t always so obliging, but I was able to run A/V for our church service and even grab a bite of lunch with friends. And then I had the incredible privilege of supporting a mama while she birthed a handsome “little” boy (9 lbs. 15 oz). What an honour!
Where I Need to Spend More Time
