Random thought bubbles on a Wednesday night

In the last 24 hours, I have had deep conversations with 5 different people, and intriguing online interactions with 3 more. Deeply grateful.

Not that anyone asked, or that I have any qualifications to make such decisions, but if I were the Newberg High track coach, I would put Maddie and MK in the 400, Emily and MK in the 800, Emily and Talli in the 1500, and Talli and Anna in the 3000.

I have yet to figure out why my most hectic and tiring days are sometimes also the days with the most explosions of ideas.

Compartmentalization. We do too much of it.

How might I do a better job of naming where each individual “thing” at church fits into the overarching whole, without becoming hugely guilty of the aforementioned compartmentalization?

I did not model good self talk tonight at one particular point, and I was overheard. Drat.

My respect for a particular college student grew today.

Maybe tomorrow I will tackle writing prompt #2. But now to bed.

  1. I have yet to figure out why my most hectic and tiring days are sometimes also the days with the most explosions of ideas.

    I don’t know why this is either, but it happens to me too. Bruce Reyes-Chow, a local Presbyterian pastor, has blogged about the same problem. I wonder if this is universal, or a particular personality trait.
