Been very busy

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 . . .
