It has been a long, long time since I have gone 4 whole days without doing some sort of work whether it is for church or this site or LifeWay. But this has been that kind of weekend. Nathan likes the sand, but not the beach and the water in the pool is cold (it is October after all) but all of the little guys are having fun.
I haven’t quite decided if this little vacation has been good for me and helped me to recharge or just made me realize how I have taken on too much and I need to back off a bit. I have hit one of those places when my job with the youth is fun, but my job as a pastor of the church at large is difficult. I have to admit I have that wanderlust in me. My mind starts to think of how good it would be to start fresh somewhere new.
Of course starting fresh means that I have to start cold and I don’t know if I want to do that again. Actually I am very sure that I don’t want to do that again. Do you think there is anyone who will pay me to sit on the beach and play with Nathan?
