I feel like I have not seen my family in weeks. I have to be careful. My biscuit heads are growing up so fast I don’t want to miss a thing. Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday is all Sandals from sun up to after 10:30 pm. I feel like my kids think I go on a trip every week or something. I don’t know. I have to keep my life balanced. I have seen too many pastors lose their families for the sake of the church. I won’t. I am reading this book called Boundaries that Rick Munchow told me to read. Sometimes I think at Sandals that my best friends, all 4 other pastors, think we can run all the time. We still remember the days of running in our mid 20’s. Leading a church of 300 God knows where. Well here is where we have landed. Now 32 and running 1700 it is time to change a few things. I’m not saying not to run hard. I am just saying make sure you take your family with you. Because they didn’t ask to be on this ride. My belly is bigger and my heart more clogged. I want to be around for my girls.
Holy crap. That was very estrogonized. Is that even a word? I sit back after the fam has gone to bed. Pop up a little Oprah on the Tivo. And the next thing you know I am typing like some Dear Abby column. Sorry about that little emotional outburst. It all came about when I got home from the office and H had taken the girls to the mall only to come back with 3 more picture depicting why my children should be movie stars. They are gorgeous. Thank you God for letting me borrow them for a while here in my life.
