Not to worry, my dear sisters and brothers, I’ve not gone away again. I’ve missed a number of Sundays but I’m okay, and I’ll be back. Don’t stop praying, I’ve been struggling, but not with my faith. My struggle is with me.
I know where I belong, and know where I should turn when my heart and mind get all confused. I’ve had too much on my plate, but nothing of substance from the only food that matters, God’s Word. Yes, there is dust building up a bit on my bible again, but tonight I assure you all, I will have it cleaned off, in my hand and be in it again. In fact I am seriously considering not going tonight to my district meeting and bingo for Avon, and spending the time in quiet time. One way or another, I will be back on my knees again, and in the Word, tonight. Someone feel free to hold me accountable there.
My time management has not been what it needs to be of late. I’ve let all sense of structure vanish from my life and that includes my time at church. But I am hungry, and I need to be there I know. Call me, email me, text me…I need the encouragement, need to pull myself out of my funk and be there this Sunday.
Keep my seat warm…on the sheep side, right next to Jane…I’ll be there.
