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.  Hp_scands_592218145346GetpictureaspxIt all came about when I got home from the Getpicture1aspx_1office 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.
