When I worked for Northwestern’s Student Affairs IT, we had a daily “Scrum”* meeting where we had all of our major projects on a board, the smaller tasks related with those projects, and where those were in terms of progress – on deck, in progress, and done. We would do a daily briefing about our status and updates about the major tasks, and celebrate when we finished a major project. I’ve tried doing this digitally, but it’s just not been effective. I also didn’t buy enough white board contact paper. But I’m hoping this will be good for my mental health – there’s just something helpful seeing my tasks and responsibilities visually, out of the gray cloud in my head and onto something tangible.

*Scrum in quotes because we didn’t do what scrum actually is, but we called it that anyway.

First match

Last night, E and I watched her very first wrestling match together. Why, I don’t know, but I chose to show her the Firefly Fun House match from the last WrestleMania. Her reaction was what I expected, and I had to explain a lot, but maybe she’ll watch a “normal” match sometime in the future.

Galatians 6:15, 17

For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation…From now on let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.

Luke 12:4

“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more.”

Job 23:3

If only I knew where to find him;
if only I could go to his dwelling!

In the end, God shows he was listening the whole time.
