Today I went to my first accountability group in a long time with some sweet women and it was good. This has been such a hard week for me - pregnancy and heart wise, and I needed a little rebuke from them about asking for help when I need it and cutting myself some slack.

So, in honor of them and their wisdom, I am going to ask for a pardon. I very much planned to write a Boston/Gospel Community Church blog today and I am just toooooo plum tired. My sweet friend Erin Timmons is here to visit and my pelvic bone may very well be chipping away from the amount of pressure Tres has put on it today. Also, if I owe you an email or a facebook message or a return text or phone call, would you cut me some slack on that as well?

So, sweet blog friends - would you check back tomorrow? Or maybe Sunday? I'll get to it, I promise. I can't wait to start telling you about our church and all that the Lord is doing! And in honor of me, cut yourself some slack today. Eat a brownie (which I'm about to do), decide not to make the bed, or wear your favorite purple shirt for the second (read: fourth) day in a row.

love, love friendlies.

i always think i'm good at cutting myself slack, but i'm really not. dave constantly makes fun of me when i'll say "i got nothing done" or "i have to do this NOW." he makes me sit, or makes me watch tv with him and tells me the other things can wait.

you've got a good man in nick, sending you away like you mentioned the other day. i'm learning sometimes it's even more important that we rest and nurture ourselves first. everyone wins when we've got a full tank (even a half tank would be sufficient) ;)

i'm glad you're cutting yourself some slack. i think i'll take your advice and go eat some donuts. you don't have to ask me twice :)

Resting in the finished work of Christ is amazing.

Hi Jessi! I am so excited that you are coming to Boston! let me back up. My name is Laurel Moran and my husband (Matt)and I go to 7 Mile Road. He is on the Pastor track- so I think he'll meet your hubby on skype tomorrow? Matt Kruse wrote on the 7MR blog about your family joining our church and he included your blog link. So I've been reading some of your entries and it makes me very excited to meet you and get to learn from you, grow with you, hear about your story and your love for Jesus...etc. I'm psyched! So I know the transition might be tough (I don't know if you're like me, but I don't particularly like change), but please know that we are excited that you are coming. My husband and I LOVE's hoping that you will love it, too! Can't wait to meet you and yours!

Laurel :-)
