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.
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.
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.
I’m guessing this isn’t the way you expected it to end, huh?
“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more.”

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.
