About $5000 left to go...
The Confirmation season is upon me. We have about a week and a half before Confirmation, and the teens are getting anxious. They are ready! And, they are counting down too. Its a JOYful thing to listen to. The excitement is here.
Rehearsal is Saturday and that means NET retreats. And, that means a bit of stress. Two lunches. I've got it down to a science, but it still rattles my brain. Because if I don't have enough volunteers, I can't get it done.
Oy. I trust in God's providence. And, I've got a list of volunteers.
As I've been paying down my debt and re-calculating and going on kbb.com to get an estimate of my minivan's value, all these scenarios keep playing out. I really am trying to stay in the moment. I really am.
But its hard to do when all I dream about is being in the monastery!
And, when I find out that I'm about $5000 away from being able to sell my minivan, it makes even more excited!!!! That's incredibly close!
When the Confirmandi have received Confirmation on Sunday, March 18, I will have completed my last major youth ministry project. After March 18, I will be able to do a lot of relational ministry, which I miss. And, a few minor projects in the youth room that won't require a computer!!! Yes, to sitting on couches. And, to training people to take over the program.
God is so faithful beyond measure. I know He will provide because He has done so, so generously. :) Please keep praying with me for benefactors, if that is God's will, to help me pay off my debt sooner than I can.
Thank You for all of your prayers, dear readers. Be assured of mine for you as well.
Until we see each other in the Eucharist!!
To Jesus through Mary,
