I took a breather from the website here last fall until now. I had some health problems that needed addressing and have been taking it easy (except for my normal duties) to give my mind a chance to rest and hopefully rejuvenate.
It is funny, the stress of health problems and such has been an opportunity to grow in faith in Jesus Christ. It has meant more of letting go of things that just didn't matter much, such as getting worked up about "little things". God has been good to me in spite of the cross that I bear as a person of faith. I am pretty sure He called on us to take up our crosses and follow him as part our journey, assuring us that this burden is light.
