Being Busy

It’s been a long while since I last posted to this blog, primarily because I’ve been abnormally busy with other things. First, there was a lot of time taken in caring for my youngest daughter and her mental illness. Thankfully, she has not only stabilized, but has also entered what might be termed “recovery”: in the sense that she is finally starting to mature and make better choices in her life. Her first psychotic break happened when she was barely 13 and her development sort of stalled at that level; in the over two years that she has been stable, we are finally starting to witness a growth in her and more maturity so that she is gradually moving now toward her actual, chronological age which will be 21 come September.

On top of that, I’ve been the interim pastor at my church now for–well, it will be two years now come August 23. I’ve gotten accustomed to the new position and duties. On top of all of that, the church has been undergoing a variety of changes: we are finally doing the repairs and renovations on the physical building that in many cases had been put off by twenty years. The changes we are seeing, both in the building and among the people are very positive.

So, I’ve been busy, and distracted, and just couldn’t, or chose not, to spend the time here that I should have. I may be able to return to a more normal schedule here once again, posting something at least once a week. I’d like to get back to once a day if I can, but we shall see how it goes.
