There are some who say that it is so much work getting ready for a vacation that it is not even worth trying to take one.  As I’m racing through this week, I cannot help but think they have a point.  But it’s not going to stop me.  This week I am clinging to Exodus 33:14: The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” 

I am very much looking forward to that rest. 

Whether I can maintain that sense of rest once I return from vacation is a whole different question, but we’ll save that topic for another time.  For now, I am off to catch the tail end of summer, and you can enjoy a couple of blog free weeks.  This blogger is officially “off the grid” and resting.

The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14

Welcome, Friends!

Here’s a quick snippet about how this blog started. 

I began writing monthly articles for my church newsletter in December 2009.  (Wow, time flies.)  The archive of these articles appears below this post.  Even though they all say they were posted in March 2012, they were actually written over a two year period.  This is why you’ll occasionally see references to things like Christmas, which I do recognize does not occur in March! 

I do not anticipate ever again having this many posts in a given month , though I DO hope to write more than monthly.  Perhaps multiple articles, perhaps a mixture of these articles and other random posts.  I really don’t have a plan apart from my monthly church deadline.  This should not come as a surprise if you (a) know me or (b) have read my “Planning” post.

Thanks to those who have been pushing me to do this.  We’ll see where it goes…
