In Deep

February 10, 2019


To all who are loved by God and called to be saints, there is grace and peace for you – in abundance — through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Discombobulated. Befuddled. Flabbergasted. Flummoxed.  If there are ever words that sound like their meaning, it’s those.  And that’s kind of how I’ve been feeling lately, in dire need of recombobulation. Where to begin? How to begin?

When you start something new, the beginning can seem daunting, almost paralyzing.  Even when you begin on a Friday. Even when there is someone like Jenny Hooley helping you.

Even with all of that working for you, it’s hard.  You want to dig in, but you can’t dig in until you first unpack. You want to get things done, but you first have to learn both what there is to do and how those things get done. Honestly, it feels like that first time when you, as a child, accidentally wandered into the deep end of the swimming pool, that moment when you realize that your toes can no longer touch the bottom and your hands are too far from the wall. At first, it’s terrifying. Discombobulating.
