Where Has the Time Gone?


Happy Thursday morning!


My life has been a whirlwind since January. I’ve been super busy with work, preparing and leading multiple Bible studies. I’ve loved every moment of getting into God’s Word. But summer has arrived, and I am entering a “slower” time. Not quite the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer, but I feel like I can relax a bit and allow my mind to stop occasionally.


Someone asked me yesterday what I did for fun or to relax. My first thought was my creative Bible journaling. I enjoy that quiet time with God, as well as leading a group of ladies through the summer. But then it hit me. I love to write. And what better way to get all that’s in my mind out?


So, I’m back this morning! Writing! It feels good. Really good.


Here are a few updates that you might not know about:


Women’s Ministry at Rocky is growing at a fast pace! I will be stepping out of our Thursday morning Bible study group (called WBC) and a wonderful team will be taking that program to new heights. I really can’t wait to see what happens.


I will be jumping into MOPS this fall. What a lovely group of mommas we have at Rocky! And the leadership is outstanding. I will enjoy being a mentor mom and helping in leadership.


There are lots of other opportunities at Rocky for women to get connected. I am truly amazed at what God is doing through this ministry. If you are local and want to find connection, just ask. I can help.


I still work closely with our Lead Pastor, Shan as his executive assistant. Sometimes I feel inadequate, but he assures me I’m not. I’m so thankful for him.


So that’s my ministry update. I could say a lot more, but I don’t want to bore you on my first day back.


Personally, I’ve had some health issues. Last November (the week before Thanksgiving), I was diagnosed with gall stones and acute pancreatitis. They settled my system and then gall bladder surgery. I still can’t eat a lot of fried foods but doing well on this side of gall-bladder-less-ness.


And then my husband and I had been looking for a dog to adopt. We finally found Lady. Oh, my heart is smitten. She’s so adorable (except when she escaped and chased a rabbit to the other side of the neighborhood) and I enjoy being her mom. She’s a great companion for my husband who is home (retired) while I’m off working 12-hour days. We are truly blessed.


Another wonderful thing that has happened in the past few months is that I was asked to be on the board of a local non-profit that helps NICU families and supports them while their fragile babies are in the NICU.

I am not going to promise to write every day. But I will promise to be more mindful of the length between blog posts. I have more to share, but I’ll save that for another day. Until then, I leave you with this verse. “Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Colossians 3:17 – NIV)


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
