Friday is here again

THANK GOD!!!

This week, with the revival, and normal church activities, and the finance group we are in, and the political world... has been CRAZY! Ronnie and I are just PUMPED to have an evening to clean house and watch a movie. How sad is that??

Well, I don't have a lot of deep thoughts today, I think... I kept trying to come up with something funto talk about yesterday, but everytime I had a bright idea, I got distracted with something else, so I ran out of time to come up with a bright idea.

It has been an exciting week though. Tuesday night I talked on SKYPE with my WHOLE FAMILY! Mom was on a computer, dad was over her shoulder, Jen was also at mom and dads house and Terry Hall was over her shoulder, Andy was at home on his computer, Jonathan was in Kuwait, Brantley was on her computer at home, Ronnie and I were on seperate computers. We were ALL in a chat room together and well, the chaos was so exciting!!! I have no idea what we talked about, but WOW we had a great time. Jonathan kept going back and forth with his webcam to let all of us see him - my webcam isnt working yet, so I couldn't return the favor....
Ronnie and I had to leave a bit early just because we had to go the revival , but for about 30 minutes... it was almost like being at home with the family. Something resembling chaos - but it is "Warren-Stewart-Mayhew" chaos... and I LOVE it!

Also on Tuesday I had a meeting with the church staff at my church. It looks like, after I finish my stint here working with the politician, I am going to be called part time to do some music and youth work at the church! I am so excited about this! THIS is my passion, my hearts desire, the thing that makes me come alive. I LOVE leading people to the throne of grace - either through worship, or teaching, or coaching - and this will give me the opportunity to do all of those. I also love that it is part time, and that I will be able to still spend time at home sometimes to just keep those things done that have to be done... that will free up my weekends to spend some "quality" time with my husband...

Wednesday proved to be just as exciting... I got a call from Jonathan that morning and actually got to talk to him for about 30 minutes! We had fun... again... like a brother and sister should. I am so proud of what he is doing. As soon as I hung up from talking to him, I got another call. A few months ago, I had applied to teach at a Averett University that is here in town. They needed an adjunct Music faculty member, and well, how about that, that is what I have two degrees in!!! I had not heard ANYTHING in over a month and figured that for some reason the door had closed.. BUT I was wrong. Mrs. Neal called, and I have jsut recently been approved to teach in the spring! YEA!!! Ladies and gentlemen.... I introduce to you "Professor Mayhew!!" hahaha... Don't worry, I won't let it go to my head. Actually, I think that it feels a bit wierd. I got the text books that they use yesterday so I can go over them. It is the same text that we used for my music lit class as a freshman at Montevallo. I have joined the other side!!!! (insert evil laugh here.... bwahahahahahaha!!!) I didn't really ever aspire to being a college professor... but then again, most of the jobs I have ever had weren't in my original game plan, and well, they have all been quite cool at some level.

Hmmm... so, it was quite an interesting week. Quite eventful, but through all of this not ONE deep thought! How sad is that? Ronnie and I have done very well this week at getting up for our quiet time - we even got up early enough twice to go WALKING twice. We are trying to be good stewards of our time, money, and bodies now. Tomorrow we are doing some political walking and stuff, so that will be exercise then, and we usually do SOMETHING fun on Sunday afternoons....

Is it ironic that the same week that we finally got our priorities straight, was the week that all this stuff worked out? I don't know. I do think it is wonderful that God works things out for us when we are focused on spending time in His word, and talking to Him.

Well, comment, talk - this wasn't the most entertaining post I am sure - but at least ya know what is going on in my life.

Professor Mayhew?! How strange is that? You are now officially a grown up. Wow. Congrats!

Sounds like a great week. Grats on the job at your local college...Me and Jess are impressed. I love working with youth too so I know that will be exciting.

WOW, I am so happy for you. I know you are excited about the job with the youth and also at the college!!
I try to read your blog at least once a week. I just started last week. I wanted to let you know how proud I am of you and also tell you "I miss you"!
Tell Ronnie "The Faucett's say Hello".
