I certainly did not intend for this blog to lay dormant for six months, but that happens sometimes. Life just…happens: kids continue to grow older at a fixed rate (though it has seemed so much faster than normal lately); the rhythms of pastoring and partnering may ebb and flow but they do so continuously, and each have needed time and attention.
But here we are, at the beginning of 2010. It has been a somewhat stressful and rocky end of the decade in some ways, but there is much to look forward to. The kids will turn 4 in August. I’ll celebrate my 11th wedding anniversary with my incredible wife in July. I’ve been given the honor of holding the office of Moderator of Heartland Presbytery, which officially begins today (though the installation is in February). Who knows what other transitions are in store.
Some have already begun. For two months I’ve been rising early for regular exercise (didn’t even need the excess of the holidays to push me there!), and that has been a wonderful change. May your 2010 be full of joy and promise.
