I’m not sure what God was thinking when he picked out my characteristics. He put together an introvert who loves people. I fight with myself all the time.
The weekly newsletter I produce as part of my job at the church features an interview with an individual or couple or family one issue out of four. Yikes! That means every four weeks I have to call someone and invite myself to his or her home for an hour at a mutually workable time. That doesn’t sound very difficult but, trust me, I have to force myself to do it.
But then I get to meet people like the Morlands. Everyone has a story, and there I sat in their home, asking questions that led to learning way more than I could fit in the designated space. All fascinating. And I loved every minute of it. Why do I resist it so much?
The writing part is fun too. Thursday’s my day to pull together the pieces for Friday distribution. I needed some more pictures; it was dark the night of the interview. So I jumped in my car and drove back to the Morlands’ farm to shoot a couple.
With advance permission I opened the gate and entered the property. Welcome!
Good boy, good boy!
Tim came out to greet me and
share some hen fruit.
Here’s the interview.
You can see why I love my job. When I make myself do it.
