From the mind of Ted Unham

So I went to Legacy Youth Conference this last weekend and it honestly felt like a million things happened within the course of a couple days. There's nothing quite like being in your own city but not going home for a few days. It's always fun to stay in a hotel and hang out with a bunch of high school students for a weekend.
This time, however, was my first time not being involved in a big way in putting the weekend together and being a leader/pastor with my group. It's a whole different perspective than I've had before, because I've never been in the audience, I've always been behind the scenes, or in the scenes.
It's a whole different ball game actually getting to talk to the kids who are being affected by what's being done and hearing the things they are learning. It's really great to hear what God does in people's hearts through a weekend like that. I enjoyed it, and I was surprised at what God taught me as well.
This isn't incredibly deep or long, I just wanted to get something up here.

Long Time No Talky

As I sit here in my bedroom in Calgary I struggle to write a paper that I need to finish before the day is out. I have had no trouble whatsoever writing other things but this paper will not flesh itself out for me. If only history papers were as easy as writing down thoughts for other to read, then I would have no difficulty at all in doing so.
It has certainly been too long since I had written anything on this blog. My intention when I started it was to continue on in my blogging so as to have a regular routine of doing so. It's good to get your thoughts out of your head sometimes.
Much has certainly happened since I wrote last as well. I have been accredited for ministry in Canada, that's one of those relief moments when everything becomes easy again for a moment. The issues arising from that particular week in history are now involving my place of residence and my career. I may be moving sooner than I had originally anticipated, oddly enough I think I'm alright with it. Now my difficulty with life is, where will it continue for me? I have no clue right now.
This whole state of suspension where you don't really know what is what yet is not necessarily a bad place to be sometimes. There is a lot to learn from times like this. I've discovered so much about myself, about my girlfriend about our relationship, and about God's direction than I could have ever imagined. This is all really good stuff. It's not fun at times but there's a lot of character building opportunities that can be found.
I find myself not thinking so abstractly right now, I still do, but at this point in time my thoughts are very practical, thinking in timelines as to when I would like things to occur, with whom and where. I've dropped below the clouds and have come back to earth I guess you could say, for the time being.
But I best be getting back to work....
