I am a list maker. I feel that when I can cross something off a list, I've accomplished something. The problem with being a list maker is that the lists can often get out of hand. Or you have 10 lists on the go...and then you lose one...horror! These days my lists are cropping up everywhere...on the fridge, on the stove, kitchen table, desk at work (many), beside my bed. I'm losing track of my lists, so I'm trying to condense them. But when I do that, I get so discouraged at the length; I could probably take it to a publisher and have it bound as a book! These days my lists are mostly comprised of things I need to do to wrap up here at the church, prepare for Pre-Field Orientation, and prepare for departure in August (how many bars of soap should I take with me?). I am continually praying that I stay focused on what I need to do, as I'm quite easily distracted. I know that everything will come together, I just don't want to leave anything until the last minute (which is what usually happens to me!). A few more details are coming together, but as it looks right now, I'll be finished at the church at the end of June (although away for a large part of June), back and forth between Sylvan Lake and various points in Alberta/Sask for the month of July, and then leaving for Costa Rica mid-August. Some days I'm still in disbelief that this is actually happening...fully relying on God' strength!!!
