The Journey

Wednesday, April 26, 2006

I feel so good today! The sun is shining here and it is supposed to get to 70 today. I made it through a difficult week last week and actually decided it wasn't that bad! I have a wife who loves me a ton! Life is good!
Mesha is fairly busy these days with Public Health Nursing. She has been in 12 hour car seat classes the last couple of days, so she is pretty tired. AFter finishing two more 12 hour classes she will be a certified car seat inspector, something she always aspired too! J/k However, she is excited to be able to help out new parents and I guess experienced parents with keeping their children safe in the car. She still loves this job, which is really great because life goes better altogether when you aren't constantly stress out about the next time you work like she was at St. Cloud.
I am comming off a very busy time in both school and church, so I am looking forward to some somewhat normal weeks here for a while. I preached again this past Sunday and it seems to have gone well. I am really starting to like preaching and will probably continue to preach when I get the chance and develop that skill more and more. Other than that, I am just pluggin away at school. I still have a little over 3 years left. I know, it is painful for me to say!
Mesha and I are going to get serious about buying a town house or house very soon. We are ready to have our own place and are praying that we can afford a place that will meet our desires to serve the Lord through some hospitality. God is faithful and we believe he will grant our needs and bless our desires to serve Him in some way!
Mesha and I are also both looking forward to our trip to Chicago at the end of the month. We are heading down there over memorial day weekend for some needed R and R and to visit some of Mesha's friends from her time at North Park University. It should be awesome!
I hope all of you out there are experiencing the beautiful day that I am and feel the renewing of life that comes with Spring!

It's another crazy week. I am preaching again and have several big youth events happening. Pray for me. That's all I have time to say for now. Blessings!

I haven't been on my blog, yet this week because I have been sick. Fever and other things that are not fun. I am not sure where I caught it, but it took me out good. I am still weak and fatiquing very quickly. I have been sick several times this winter, which is unusual for me. I thought spring would maybe push me out of that, but I guess not. Anyway, I'll try to update more in a few days. Wash those hands, please!!! I am tired of getting sick!!!!

It's been almost a week and a half since I updated the blog. Time is flying by these days! Life is good with the Torkelsons. Mesha called me yesterday and said that she'll never be bored at work again. Her boss was away for like a week and a half and didn't leave enough work for Mesha. Now that she has returned and explained a few things to Mesha, she will apparently not have anymore trouble with being bored. This is good because coming from a hospital, Mesha is used to always being on the run. She is still thrilled with her work and the chance she has to help families with handicapped children.
I am doing well too. I am a little annoyed with my new classes at Seminary because they seem to entail more busy work than most that I have had so far in Sem. Oh Well, I make it through. Other than that, things are life as usual at the Torkelson household. Hope you are all well.
