Obstacles and Easter Faces

Hope you all had a great Easter yesterday. We had our highest attendance ever at church (over 800 people) and a great day eating way too much food with family. In a related story, I spent much of the afternoon on the couch watching The Masters and doing nothing. It was great.

I’ve been super busy at work lately, so that’s why my blogging has dropped off a bit. I was going strong with 5 posts a week there for a while, but that will probably shrink to 3-4 a week for the foreseeable future. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me. At the very least, I hope you can find an aorta…you need one of those.

I’ve still got my dream of writing and speaking, and I’m still working towards doing those things as much as I can. I’ve got a couple potential speaking gigs in the works for some youth retreats later in the year, so if those come through they will be a lot of fun. As for writing, I feel like I’m in a bit of limbo right now. My last proposals were well received by the publisher I was working with, but in the end they couldn’t pull the trigger on them. That was disappointing, but as my friend Susan Isaacs reminded me the other day, it’s just another obstacle to overcome as I set out to write a great story with my life. The conflict can sometimes make the story better, so I’m embracing it and pressing on. Just not sure what writing project I’m pressing onto next at this moment…

So in the meantime, it’s back to work…and here’s Kylie and Parker making some goofy Easter faces with their cousins.

Have a great week!
