Update On Life #1

I want to firstly apologize that I haven’t made a post in quite awhile. The reason being would be that I have the greatest writers block of all – lack of time. Though that excuse (at least in my head) doesn’t hold water for long, as I’m reminded that Albert Einstein, John MacArthur, Al Mohler, and many others have the same 24 hours that I do.

All excuses aside, life has been a bit crazy with our (my wife and I’s) schedule being filled from 6am to 8pm some nights. It’s been a bit overwhelming at times, but we’re doing what we love.

I work in many different places, firstly for my local hardware store part time, and the rest of the time I work for myself and VT Branch company. The pay is good, so I’m very thankful for the funds to do things other than “get by” (i.e. go on a date). Though we are “getting by” we are living well and budgeting wisely I think. Money is so much less overwhelming when you write down where each bit of your paycheck goes! Anyways, I’m thankful for organization.

My wife is working part time at our local general store, I’m still baffled by her desire to work. I wake up and I don’t get excited about working, but somehow She does! I’m almost fully convinced she has the gift of contentedness. Her example of working hard (and being willing and driven) is very humbling to me, as it shows me where I’m weak and need to grow. She’s also the local librarian. Though the building is only open twice a week, she still enjoys it.

In other news…

Youth Ministry is in full swing! Our first Teen group had over 30 teens, and the next two we’re close to the same as well! It’s been really cool seeing God work through the teachers and leaders to get those teens thinking on some extremely important things.

An update on this week for me is that i’ll hopefully be playing dodge-ball Wednesday (tomorrow) night. So here’s hoping I own them all. Just kidding, only a few. I’ll try my hardest anywho.

Anyways thanks for reading, make sure to follow to get more updates and more posts on everything pertaining to life and Christ!

In Christ,

~Nolan
