This is now checked off my to-do list.

May has flown by, and some days I feel like I'm just being dragged along by my ankle! I'm still in the throes of the never-ending paperwork, emails and appointments that go along with moving to Costa Rica but I'm getting through bit by bit. I have never been one to be an excellent time-manager (some of you may remember our all-nighters writing papers in college), so this last month has been a challenge. When everything piles up, I can easily get overwhelmed by it all and just go into my "oblivious" mode. But thankfully, I now know how to recognize that in myself! Someone encouraged me a few weeks ago by saying "just do one thing. then do another..." and I often remember that when the pile of to-do's is weighing me down.

I have now wrapped up/passed on most of my responsibilities at the church, but there are still a few things that need to be tied up in the next few weeks. I am finished at the church as of the end of June...I am thinking that July is going to be a very strange month! If you are into praying, that is a big request for me right now...transition from ministry at the church. If anyone would like to come to my commissioning service, it is taking place at 10:30am on Sunday June 20 at Alliance Community Church in Sylvan Lake.

In amongst the busyness, I have had a few adventures as well...


Great visit with Auntie Stacy (she is currently tour director for the
African Children's Choir -Choir 35)


Hiking near Nordegg, AB with Dayna on the May long weekend
(the snow proved to thwart our efforts)


Fantastic visit at the end of April in Ontario with Cyndi.....

...Tony...?......


...and Gracie Zimmerman!
