I never enjoyed reading those blog posts that began, “I’m sorry I disappeared for awhile, but I was…..”
But, now I have to write one of those blog posts that begin, “I’m sorry I disappeared for awhile, but I was….”
If there’s one thing I finally learned, you can’t be Super Woman every day of your life. When juggling the events of your life, you eventually will drop a few things. Things you love to do, things you want to do and things you need to do. Things like blogging.
You just can’t do it all.
So, you choose, or life chooses for you.
Back to where have I been?
On a spiritual journey.
Every summer for the past 12 years, my husband has been preaching at this summer camp in the woods of Minnesota. Should I add mosquito infested woods?
He started attending as a child because his mom made him. He was a troubled, angry kid trying to survive his parents’ divorce. In need of relief, his mom shipped him off to this camp for two weeks because it was free. She never had to make him go back again, he loved Bible camp.
Yea, the camp is free. It runs on faith and faith sustains. Faith also saves. After four years of attending camp, Scott trusted Christ as his Lord and Savior. That’s what makes preaching there even more special, he was born-again there and helps bring others into new life in Christ by preaching the Gospel.
It’s been our thrill and delight to travel from Seattle to Duluth each summer to join the dear midwest believers in ministering the Gospel. OK, not every part of the 1665 mile trip is thrilling and delighting, but camp is always worth the trip.
After a long year of homeschooling, I’m always tired. This past year we’ve had a lot of serious trials, so I had spiritual fatigue in addition to physical fatigue. But, every year we make the trip and I am reminded that serving is what restores me to face another year.
After our week with the junior high kids, our son got married in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Then, hubby flew to Georgia for business while Beka and I stayed at Story Book so she could be a camper for the
Beka and I traveled home, visiting friends and relatives in MN, ND, MT and ID. It would have been easier to blog as I traveled, as I have in the past, but this year I wasn’t SUPER MOM. I was just one tired mom who needed to spend time with the women who have impacted my life. I arrived back in Seattle with a bajillion bugs plastered on the outside of my husband’s car, vintage stuff PACKED in inside the car, and a heart refreshed for another year.
My husband got the car washed, I’m almost unpacked, so it’s time to get back to blogging…….
