I’m a true believer in that in order for us to be filled up we have to pour out. Stagnation (sp?) is no good for anyone, and isolation is even worse. So as tired as I’ve been, I’ve made up my mind to stay involved in the ministry areas that I know God wants me to be involved in. And it has not been easy. I look at the calendar for this month, and I’m like man oh man, we have a lot going on . . . and I don’t think there’s going to be much of a breather for a long while as there is a lot of stuff brewing. My body says, “stay home! You need to!” But my spirit man says, “go, go, go . . . it’ll be easier now to go than when baby comes.” So I’m going. And tomorrow morning, I’ll be at our COTH Ladies Tea and sharing on all the ways we can be involved in outreach this summer, fall, and winter. It’s exciting really. I’m just praying that this big body gets up the stairs to the podium without falling, and that I can get all my thoughts together as I’ve been beyond scattered. I’m also praying about how to stay involved with both a toddler and a newborn. I so look forward to our summer of going down to Pearl St. to minister to the homeless, so Ezra Jack may just have to be strapped on and carried with us. 🙂 I’m determined to be both a mom and the lady that God has called me to be . . . just have to find the time . . .
