I realized today...

...how much I will miss my friends when my wife and I move this coming summer.

...how much of a gulf there is between the language of theology that I speak, and the language that non-ministers speak.

...that no matter how much training as a counselor I have, I will still screw up in my relationship with my wife.

...that the names Shiphrah, Puah, and Jael will mostly likely not make a significant comeback on peoples’ lists of baby names.

...that birthday cakes are important, especially when you forget to make them.

...how much I enjoy talking about theology and politics and animated television shows.

...how a simple gesture can put a smile on someone’s face.

...that I have really good friends and I am surrounded by people who care about me.

Finally, I realized today that being a minister is not so bad, especially when you are surrounded by people who make it okay to laugh at yourself.
