Days like today...

...make me love being a Youth Pastor.

Today was beautiful. I had the honour of baptizing four of my youth girls. It was rad to hear their hearts, pray with them, and dunk them. Such a beautiful image.

We did it on a lake, the sun was shinning, the church family was gathered and the Lord was ever present.

Afterwords many loitered about and I got a crew to jump off the dock.

It was refreshing. Such a blessing.

Also, summer is upon us... HOLLA!

WOW. I'm doing awesome at this commitment thing now hey!? Phh not so much. While reading a facebook note I was inspired to do a random list post...

Hint of lime Tostitos are ridiculously good, and have more than a hint of lime to them.

I waited at a traffic light for like 15 minutes before rerouteing and turning left.

I'm becoming more and more awkward with age.

I drove to PoCo, Langley, and Surrey today. I've put over 1000 km on my three week car.

Some children are really just rude.

When people love what they are doing, it shows, even if they love it at that moment.

The guy at Starbucks supplied me with my own label, so now I no longer have to stumble my through the order just to receive my drink. Thank you!

I am attending 5 weddings this summer, starting this Saturday. I was at their rehearsal today and they are so ridiculously in love, not just the mushy kind but the yeah this is for life kind.

I've heard a relationship with God being labeled as the first love. I need to cultivate my first love to once more be my first love, I miss him.

It's such an incredible honour to be working with those that I work with, I'm blessed to be able to say that.

...5 days.

It feels like Sunday.

Ok so, the post after my apology post and I miss it ...SHAME.

Hmm. I feel as though I should post something extra juicy to cover that up...

It's amazing how much plants and fake greenery can change a place. My current roomate will no longer be my roommate come June 1st and she has slowly begun moving out. Today the bamboo on the side table is gone, and the face tree thing from the bathroom counter is gone. Sad really.

I'll have to make a trip to Ikea.

I need more things for my walls too...very bare, very bare indeed.

Dear Friends,

I'm sorry for those who regularly visit this blog and know that I have made a commitment to blog twice a week, Sunday and Wednesdays. I am sorry because you will be aware that I have missed not only Wednesday but the Sunday post as well.

There are no excuses for this. It's really that I got too busy, forgot or was too lazy when I remembered.

On the flip side, I feel that the past couple of weeks I've signed onto a number of heavy commitments: A permanent job, car payments and a phone contract. If you know me well you know that I enjoy being a "roamer" a bit of a free spirit if you will. Up to this point the only real "commitment" was with a two year phone contract that I could easily buy my way out of.

I've come to the conclusion that commitment scares me, and it seems to squish me...

...mold me into an adult, who to be honest I'm not sure I want to be.

So with that being said please accept my apology for bailing out not once but twice in a row on this commitment.

Yours Truly,

Yes those are keys in my hand.

I made the plunge.
I'm significantly in debt.
But I ride with confidence and style.

Cheers to settling and growing up.

DANG! I buy faster than I read.

I added the following books to my collection, all for just over $30.

Yes I am aware of the fact that 3/4 of them are Childrens books.
I got those book in less then 10 min. at a fab used book store!
On the same day I had a picnice and flew kites by the ocean and climbed a small mountain. I wish everyday was an adventure such as that.
