The longer Internet silence on my blog is finally broken. These past four weeks have been crazy nonstop action. I’ll go into detail in future blogs, but this past month I…

Also remounted photo boards (long story), made a marriage conference brochure and graphics, made Parent Project graphics and promotion, had lots of meetings, etc. etc. My job was anything from pounding nails in the wall to writing up tech cues to talking to upset/stressed people. There was lots of praying, insomnia and long hours. I think I worked my longest day since my medical leave last year, 15 hours.

But I totally loved it! I can’t describe how incredibly thankful and humbled I am to serve with such incredible people. Our church has some of the most fantastic people around. Their servant hearts are a total reflection of Christ. All this was only possible because so many stepped up in so many different areas. There was lots of opportunities for creative expression and for people’s gifts to be utilized. God answered many, many prayers and it was really cool to see it all come together.

And I am also very very very thankful for such an incredibly supportive husband. Albert and the kids not only put up with all the chaos but they were also all involved with the services too.

I’ll go into more detail, now that I am on vacation and am processing the backlog of photos that have accumulated this month. I’m looking forward to getting back to blogging!
