Stone Soup for Five: Sunday Summary--June 15

Sunday Summary--June 15

Every Sunday (or sometimes Monday... or Tuesday) I try to review the past week and see how I've done on being intentional about my time, goals, and productivity.

This week, looking back on my bullet journal, I see a lot of squares that weren't fill in..

Which mean a lot of my to-do's and goals were NOT accomplished.

BUT, this week was all about relationship building.
And being an introvert and very much a home/book-body, I need to work on relationships outside my immediate family.

This was a week of being with the friend who heard her brother's cancer came back, aggressively.  
Being with another friend, just enjoying time in fellowship and coffee.
Helping another friend pack and tear down and box up and move.
Being with my sister and her kids before they move away to a land too far.
Talking late into the night with another friend through family death, problems, and a new house purchase.

It is so easy for me to look at my list for the week and get discouraged that there are more arrows to move the items to next week, than there are filled in blocks of items accomplished.

But then I try to remember that this life is not about how much I've done, but all about relationships.

And for that I'm thankful that all those arrows moving things to this week mean I have another breath, 
another day, 
another week 
to enjoy this life.

And I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for it.


  1. I wish there were a 'like' button. Because life isn't always what we expect, or what we want. But often it's what we need.

  2. I am an introvert and at 60 finally accepted all of being an introvert and decided I no longer have to force myself to be with people unless they were people I really desired to hang out with. As an introvert we usually like small groups amd maybe have one or two very close friends. We are deep thinkers and don't let small talk. As a Christian I felt I needed to be "there" and was always feeling guilty for not being outgoing enough. I found my nitch in a small women's bible study were I have found deep friendships and sisterhood. Be who you are. God made you this way on purpose.
