work anniversary . . . to me!
yep, three solid years at this place.
it was march 1, 2010, when i made the leap into full-time ministry.
it’s a memory still fresh in my mind.
an eager, determined 22 year old. a sociology major who, when asked what she can actually do with her sociology degree, answered “anything with people – because it’s the study of people!”
was am a sociology nerd, but it’s definitely my true passion. people – listening, watching, learning, talking, laughing, planning, celebrating.
so, spending the past three years with people – listening, watching, learning, talking, laughing, planning, celebrating – in ministry has grown me the most. ever. in my entire life. more than any other experience.
i was gonna be a teacher. i was gonna rock the teacher world. but god had his plan & he put it into action.
i’m baffled & blessed at how much has happened the past three years. like my boss/mentor/friend said today, “from an intern to an executive assistant.”
that’s quite a leap. a leap that i didn’t expect, i didn’t envision, i didn’t think i would ever want.
i’ve made ((future bridesmaids – for the rest of your life – sisters in christ – future kid play-date – future hubby’s will be best friends – scrapbooking club)) BEST FRIENDS during these years.
god has made me more mature; more sensitive to the needs of others. he has taught me the art of communicating – after 22 years of failing at it 🙂 . he has shown me grace & freedom from junk. it’s definitely been a life-changing three years.
& i get to edit – like everyday. have i ever expressed how much i love to edit? it’s like a breath of fresh air. i love it.
my coworker & friend puna blogged my first day on the job back in 2010. she makes me smile. you should go read her post – it’s full of silly pictures from that first day! read it HERE.
here’s to the next three years.
tonight my question is this: “am i following god? or am i asking god to follow me?”
