Life has settled into nice routine, which is why I haven't blogged in a little while—not too much to talk about! One interesting thing did happen to us, though, in the last week. The bishop paid us a little visit last Saturday and released us from our callings and gave us new ones. We were surprised because we've only been serving in those capacities for a few months.
(Members of our church volunteer to help out in tons of different ways. I'd been working with the teenage girls in our congregation, and Ryan had been working with the Boy Scouts.)
On Sunday Ryan was sustained as the new ward mission leader and me as a ward missionary. I'd never pictured us in these roles (and for some reason, especially not at our age), but we're excited to get involved in this new capacity.
Ryan is busier than he's ever been, and between managing the complex, his long work hours, his CPA studies, our new baby, and now this new calling, I feel like the Lord is really stretching us. I know many of you are juggling a lot more than this, but for right now, I think I have just about all the balls in the air that I can handle. It's amazing how when you think you've got all you can handle, the Lord tosses you another ball, and before long, without even knowing, you're ready for another ball. I'm so grateful for the help He sends when I need it and for the confidence He blesses us with when we're doing all we can.
All in all, I've never been happier or more fulfilled. We are blessed beyond what we deserve. I mean, just check out this handsome little chunker heaven sent us!
