The Calendar Clearer

  • One Guaranteed Way to Clear Your Calendar

Let’s start this post by backtracking through October. October was crazy. I don’t even remember parts of it happening. I was home and sleeping in my own bed 3 nights out of the whole month and I’m not proud of that. I think that’s sad and I don’t do the whole “BUSY as a badge of Honor” thing. I know it’s not normal or healthy or impressive…. but “BUSY” has been the story of our life these last 6 weeks. CreativeLive, The Workshop Experience, UNITED, Pursuit, Bahamas, MTH, The Blink Conference, Creative at Heart… these are all of the things, outside of weddings, that I’ve agreed to be a part of this fall and it’s a lot. I know it’s a lot. However, I also know that it is an HONOR to have a chance to influence so many different pockets of people. This is our season for this. This is what God has for us…. but God also knows our limits and when we start to depend on ourselves. :)
