Wow. I will never take for granted the time it takes to create one of those pamphlets that organizations put together to show the goings-on of the company, church, group, whatever. I don’t know how I thought those things came into being, but now I know. Hours of writing, tweaking, compiling, assembling, taking apart, re-assembling.
I’ve been involved in two projects of this sort over the past week. I had the opportunity to put together a marketing packet for work and to help with the booklet for our State of the Church meeting tomorrow. I thoroughly enjoyed using the creativity that God has given me. And I will think twice before I toss a marketing packet that I receive without looking at it. And I will fully appreciate having an assistant to do these things one day. I will compensate that person very well.
Tonight I was talking with a friend from CA. She and I have been tossing around the idea of when I’ll move out there. Tonight I told her that it probably won’t be for a long time. I know I said this yesterday, but it is more true today than it was yesterday. I’m in this thing for the long haul. I know that my life isn’t perfect. I know my church isn’t perfect. I know my company isn’t perfect. But…I’m all in. All my chips are on the table, and I’m playing this hand that God has dealt me until I can play it no longer.
So, there you have it. I’m all in.
