May Burnout

Do you feel it? We are not a frantic family. Many Saturdays are spent in pj's till late afternoon. No, we are not lazy - just not busy. Then May hits and we don't know how to live. I may sound like I'm whining to some of you that keep 50 plates spinning all the time. Between all the school events, awards ceremonies, special celebrations and field trips, church kids musical and heading up a search committee I am spent. Tomorrow we leave for just over 3 weeks at home in South Africa - sounds delightful.

Back to Blogging

I have let almost 6 weeks go by without blogging. I have not really missed it because I have been so caught up in the blogging world of BST, Mike Cope, Joe Hays etc. I have been a reader recently and not a writer. I think I know why - I just did not want to have to think enough to organize my random thoughts on paper. And here is the reason why....I am chairing a search committee for our new worship minister. It really has been a positive experience for me so far. I have loved meeting and talking with all the potential candidates. I have loved praying for this and planning for it. But no matter what you say, these search committees eat your lunch! It is also May and that means more school committments than there are days to fulfil them. It also means our long awaited trip home is only 11 days away! yah...South Africa here we come.
So, nothing new to say today. But it did feel good blogging anyway.
