Where Have I Been?
Well, maybe that's not true. Since my last post (yes, Greg, it was in August), I've been to the Eastern Shore of Maryland where I officiated a wedding in the middle of Hurricane Irene (that could have been a post), to Clemson University for the Clemson/Auburn football game (another potentially great post), to Atlanta for the Catalyst Conference, to the Outer Banks of North Carolina for another wedding (turned out to be windier than Hurricane Irene - go figure) and finally to Pennsylvania for a celebration of my Dad who turns 60 this weekend (watch for a post on my dad later this week).
I've been everywhere and I've been nowhere because the truth is I've simply been busy and got out of the habit of writing.
Have you ever noticed how readily we leave behind the disciplines of reflection and conscious thought when life speeds up? I have, and I've also noticed how those absences always come back to haunt me.
So, I don't know where you've been lately or what's been keeping you up at night, but let me invite you to take a deep breath and slow down. A little reflection, a lot of prayer and some time to think are worth their weight in gold.
I'm back...oh, and I'm pregnant :)
