Well friends . . . I think my blogging time is winding down. It's been over two months since I last blogged. I haven't even thought about writing in a long time. Life has been filled with many things lately, some new, some old, including successes and challenges.
Being the only pastor in a church has its demands . . . and they are numerous. It has never been more difficult being a pastor of a church . . . and . . . it has never been as fulfilling. I'm usually singing about 3 times a month. That's about all I really want to sing at this time, although our annual Vacation Bible School is next week! I'll be banging the guitar and singing each night for 4 days.
I love blogging . . . well, I think I do . . . but so many things have changed since I first began blogging when I was at FUMC-Graevine, Those were good days helping lead a band, and singing up to 10 times a month. Here at my new church (and I've been here a year already) things are different as I expected they would be. All in all . . . it's time for a change.
So, time, focus, responsibilities, family . . . life in general . . . now necesitate that I spend some focused time taking care of myself and those whose overall well being is my responsibility. So there will no more blog postings for the forseeable future. I plan to take down this blog in late August. I will begin rethinking the focus of my writing efforts in the near future. But right now . . . it's time to acknowledge that the season has changed. Time to go fishing.
Thanks everyone . . . I've had over 73,000 hits since I started almost 10 years ago. Please keep singing if you are . . . and if you aren't singing yet . . . jump on in, the waters fine!
God's grace still amazes me . . .
