The Week in General Review

This isn’t comprehensive, but rather a skeleton of what usually goes on during a typical week of my life.

Skip out the door and nearly burst into tears leaving work building for being so happy for the weekend
Hang out with friends

Stay up too late

Sleep in

Be lazy
Write for a little bit
Run errands

Stay up too late

Sometimes I’ll hang out with friends in the middle of the week, so it’s not always during the weekend, and some days I read and study non-seminary and churchy or academic and secular things, but as you can see, I eat every day. And I wake up every day. And so far, I write every day. But I also stay up late every day. So sometimes, that catches up with me and I have to take a day off. But I always get back on schedule. It’s been a pretty steady schedule. Reliable. There are so many things to do and learn about and people to believe in and be friends with.  And sometimes it all just doesn’t get done, and sometimes that’s okay. Sometimes. But when my charge doesn’t neatly fall into place like I imagine, I appreciate more how efficient and careful and lovingly thoughtful God was with his time when he created the earth. And us. Check out the first few chapters in Genesis to see how that particular week for him went. Seeing the word good so many times in that context brings much joy to my heart. Every time.
