Staying Sane

Life will calm down eventually.

Most things are done… we’ve finished the biggest part of our fundraiser for camp. We’ve done the block party. Youth Sunday is over. Just 2 more weeks of VBS, and respite is in sight! Though I’m dreadfully behind on wedding photos, too… zut.

I always notice how it’s the little things in the middle of all this craziness. Small things like putting work aside to have an impromptu date night with my wife, watching stupid videos on the internet. Or hanging out with Burmese kids brand-new to the country at VBS, pretending to be a lion or teaching them new English words while they laugh at my attempts at Burmese. Or, while some of the neighborhood kids can be stressful at potluck, taking those same kids across the street to let them show off on their bikes while taking some awesome photos.

God offers comfort and joy no matter how busy and overwhelmed you are… but you’ve still got to take the time to see it when it’s offered to you.
