Happy New Year! I really can't believe it's 2009 already. It seems like just a few weeks ago that we were all planning for Y2K, wondering what the future might hold entering the new millennium. That was nine years ago. How quickly even a decade passes these days! ;)
After my December Daily posts, I feel that I need a bloggy break. Wes and I are busy - so busy! The other day I was reading the blog of an assistant pastor, and he said he finally quit saying, "It's not always this busy" because it IS always this busy. I kept thinking all last year that it's "not always this busy." Well . . . I'm beginning to understand that it's always this busy. Working in a church ministry is busy, no matter what the size of the church. I flew through the Christmas season feeling like I was barely hanging on, wondering when I was going to get in the Christmas spirit, and then the season was over. The sad thing is that I feel busy but I don't see a lot around me to indicate that I've done much!
We're going to a pastor's conference next week, then it's back to school and Sunday school lessons and piano arrangements and all my household duties for me. I will be around the bloggy world, posting and reading when I can. Please be patient as I once again rearrange my activities to try to fit my priorities. I want to keep blogging in there, and I will post as much as I can! Thank you all for reading - I'll be back soon!
