Things I’ve Been Learning Lately, vol. XI


Welcome to Friday!  Welcome to the weekend!  I hope yours is going better than mine is so far…I spent the last 48 hours running a session of seventh grade camp with an ever-worsening head cold.  The combination of sick and exhausted that I feel is unlike anything I’ve felt before.  I’m pretty sure I whispered “I’m dying” to myself at least a dozen times in the last two days.

Thank goodness for weekends that are for laying low and recuperating.

Here are some things I’ve been thinking about this past week…

  • There’s nothing like a book by a great spiritual writer to make you realize that you’ve got God and prayer all wrong.  A solid interior life is a worthy pursuit, but it’s not easy.
  • The bunny exhibition hall at any state or county fair is the happiest place on earth.
  • Seeing a wild black bear for the first time in your life is nothing short of exhilarating.  Especially if you’re from a state where they don’t normally roam.
  • Breakfast tacos are life and they totally should not just be eaten at breakfast.
  • I love the road.  It’s a tiring life, but even short road trips make me excited for the travel season of my second missionary year.
  • 70-degree days are the best days.
