SMP 6.18.13

SMP = Seven Minute Post

Hello blog readers. It's been awhile hasn't it?

Summer is in full swing here at the Life at 7000 Feet casa. I love this time of year. John has been super busy with work and I'm working two jobs until the end of this month so our brains haven't fully switched over to summer mode but there are indications of it everywhere!

So yeah, did you catch that I'm working two jobs? I resigned my Young Life admin job last month and will step away at the end of June. I've enjoyed that job but it was one of those part-time things that felt full-time and it was just too much for me. That's the thing about working from home...you're always "on". I didn't like feeling like I was constantly juggling work and family. I happened upon another job working for a friend who has a home business and it provides a lot more structure (i.e. office) and consistent hours and so far it's been a good fit. I'm really anxious to switch to only ONE job though. I've been carrying a heavy load lately. And am very much looking forward to vacation in July!

I appreciate the emails and texts and messages last week about our safety during another horrific wildfire outside of Colorado Springs. Ugh. Our family/home wasn't in immediate danger, but this fire came much closer to our community than the Waldo Canyon fire did last summer and impacted many of our friends. We were thrilled that all of our friends escaped damage to their homes despite the fire being on the edges of their neighborhoods. It's been very devastating for our community though--hundreds of homes were completely destroyed, including those of some folks from our church. It's truly heartbreaking, but it's also truly wonderful to see a community rise up and come together to support each other.
