Hello friends! I hardly want to admit how long it’s been since I’ve blogged…
It’s that time of year again, and I’m an active pastor’s wife, so my time has been consumed with practicing and playing for cantatas and concerts, decorating and organizing Christmas events for ladies and teens. Oh, yes, I’m first a mom, so I’ve been homeschooling somewhere in there between long hours at the church. 😉 I think it’s finally starting to calm down.
Also, I’ve taken a bit of a writing breather and have purposefully taken extra time to refresh myself spiritually, and to ask God to fill me and work in me something new. He is doing that, and per usual, those times are not pleasant, but the fruit of it all will be so very precious. In the midst of painful circumstances, I am endeavoring to keep my focus on Christ. I’m working my way through “The Greatest Gift: Unwrapping the Full Love Story of Christmas” by Ann Voskamp. It is phenomenal. I can’t even explain it- you’ll just have to get it for yourself. 🙂
As far as the nitty gritties of writing go, I feel many posts stirring in my heart, yet none ready to be on the screen yet. In writing about and for ministry families, I always want to come across with grace. And until a post is spelled out with grace in my heart, it is not ready for the eyes and hearts of others. This often takes time, and I trust you will be understanding with my brief writing absence.
Another thing that has left me empty and yet full is the unexpected viral nature of two of my posts recently. For some reason, when this happens, I just feel unable to write for awhile afterwards. I’ve been backlogged with answering private emails and responding to comments, so I apologize for that. And if you have written to me, and not heard back, please shoot me an email again because sometimes my messages get caught in the spam filter.
If you know a pastor’s wife who would be blessed by these articles, please share so that we can further the community of women in ministry and better support each other:
This season, and always, may your heart be full and your eyes only on Christ. ((a hug)) to all of you sweet ladies!
