today is day 52ish of unemployment. i had a third interview in the morning and then, i went to church and cooked a meal to celebrate the ordination of our pastors. i got there at 2 and spent the entire afternoon measuring rice, adding ingredients, making lemonade and salad and helping cut a cake (read: eating the icing that accumulated on the knife.) and then, i attended the ordination and sat on a pew sandwiched between my small group and felt so blessed. blessed to be connected and to have friends again and to belong somewhere and to have these two amazing pastors who are passionately leading this quirky, awesome, grace-filled group of people who gather in westport to figure out who god is and what he is calling them to.
and anyway, today, my soul felt filled.
