It’s a crazy time.
- Jaime (my daughter) and her husband are packing to move their family and I get to help her clean and watch the kids this weekend.
- Josh (my oldest) and his wife are unexpectedly showing their house this weekend to a family member of a neighbor and I get to stage their house, something I love doing!
- We close on our current and new houses at the end of the month and I haven’t yet packed a box.
- And I’m fatigued from adjustments to a brand new way of eating due to recent tests that reveal a needed gluten-free, dairy-free and lots of other things-free lifestyle. After three weeks I just want a cheeseburger and a chocolate shake!
So I’m taking the week off of blogging to help some of my people get to Lake Nona and pour through cookbooks and blogs to find things I can eat that won’t gag Benny and Julia (or me, for that matter).
Plus, I’m wanting to pause over the things I’ve been writing about to do a heart check. Am I robustly applying myself to the truths I’ve been communicating? Are there people about whom I am harboring self-righteous judgments or attitudes of superiority? Are there any logs protruding from my eye? Or specks in the eyes of others that my self-protection has excused me from gently and lovingly removing?
See you next week!
