What I Learned in May

PJ is crazy allergic to the outdoors. I really miss volunteering at CareNet. My inbox doesn’t implode if I only check it twice per day.

PJ is crazy allergic to the outdoors. When allergy medications were failing to control his symptoms, PJ went to an allergist for another round of testing. His reactions to outdoor allergens were so significant that even the person administering the test was surprised! You know you’re pretty allergic when you shock the allergy clinic employee…

I really miss volunteering at CareNet. Ben’s unexpectedly early arrival in March put an abrupt stop to my weekly shift doing ultrasounds at our local pregnancy center. After being gone for over two months, I’m finding that I really miss that part of my week! I love the thrill of finding evidence of new life in a tiny heartbeat, of partnering with sweet like-hearted women, and of ministering to women who are facing uncertain times. I truly believe that pregnancy centers are a key means of ending the atrocity of abortion. The Lord is in these places. For more reading on abortion, pregnancy centers, and the church, check out this post.

My inbox doesn’t implode if I only check it twice per day. The transition from four to five kids has been hard for me and has been stretching my already-OCD organizational skills to the max. I realized that I was wasting a lot of time attending to the urgent tasks (new emails and notifications) while struggling to complete important tasks (showering, cooking dinner). I’ve cut back my electronic usage in several ways, but the most helpful has been to check my email twice per day instead of leaving the browser tabs open constantly. I check it early in the morning to see what needs my attention that day, and I check it in the late afternoon to see if anything important came in during the day. And, shocker, life goes on.

What did you learn this month?
