In addition to that, this week has been a daily onslaught of ministry opportunities - most of which in no way connected to my actual ministry 'job.' Although I did make the Pastor's family a pretty amazing banquet while he was in the hospital, if I do say so myself (cream of broccoli soup, mashed potatoes with sour cream, butter and fresh homegrown dill in them, kielbasa fried in marinating sauce, and for desert mango cupcakes AND carob-banana cupcakes - both with icing. All of which was made from SCRATCH)
Its been exhausting but in a good way - like after a really refreshing work out kind of exhausting. And its given my husband and I several opportunities to assess or reassess where we are and what we're doing and why. Or what keeps us going, or areas we were encouraged by - or what is currently discouraging us about certain things and trying to find ways to overcome it.
All that to say I have not abandoned you, my little blog. I'm just really busy living life outside a computer these days.
