I Am Not

So ... what's been going on? Well, I've once again found myself in the midst of a lot of "stuff". Its stuff that I find exciting and wonderful but stuff I know nothing about. Here's the thing ...

This year at Pine Ridge we'll be partnering with another local church. They had expressed interest in going to Pine Ridge and in working back to back with us on a project, but there was not a week available for them to go - so they're going with us! So we have TWO teams, TWO churches and ONE trip! I'm excited about the possibilities and nervous about them as well. :) Last year was a tough one. It was probably our best trip but personally for me it was a nightmare and I was SO not ready to put another one together. Now I have a bigger one. Funny how that works.


You see, I'm not a leader. Really, I'm not. I keep telling God that but He doesn't listen. He just keeps giving me more and bigger stuff. Gotta love Him.


No, I'm not a leader. And I'm not a concert organizer, or a concert promoter, or an event planner, or a biker, or a runner. And yet, I do all of those things on some level. I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm most definitely not gifted in any of those areas but I am willing to jump into something blind and hope for the best. Kinda like skydiving. Crazy, oh yeah!


Oh, and I'm not an artist either and yet it seems I've just made a logo for the 5k we're doing for Backpacks this year. I kinda made it by accident and well, they liked it. That's right, we're doing a 5k for Backpacks for Pine Ridge this year. Soon I'll be able to tell you when and where ... right now we're still waiting for the park board to approve it - which shouldn't be a problem.


So yeah, I've been busy doing all the things I don't know how to do.
