This season of my life

We’ve been to three weddings, a funeral, a daughter’s college concert, a baptism of a grandson, visiting elderly mothers and other relatives, a niece’s graduation, and our daughter’s college graduation over the course of the last month and a half. That’s about 3500 miles, plus lots of time and love.

Now we have our other daughter and our little grandsons here for a few days. Busy busy busy.

So that’s why I haven’t been blogging much, not because I haven’t been thinking much.

What I have been reflecting on is how I perceive the various churches where these events have taken place. Churches and church events certainly seem to have their own personalities.

I also heard just a few days ago, that my older half sister just died of cancer. I’ve been putting off making a decision about attending the funeral. My excuse has been that I didn’t know the details, yet that is just an excuse. My selfish reason for putting off the decision is that it would mean another 1000 mile round trip drive. Sigh.


  1. don't forget to take care of yourself. no one deserves your nurturing more than you do, and we all have limits. I'm so very sorry for the losses, and stresses you've experienced and wish you ease and peace.

  2. Church events do have local personalities and vary from community to community in the sdame denomination.


And what do you think?
