After the Rain

These first couple of weeks of school’s fourth quarter has been unexpectedly busy.  Lots of little open loops to manage, really.  Beyond regular classroom and chapel things, we are working on bringing in a “candidate” to fill the holes tied in with my current “temporary vocational stretch.”  Plus things around Easter time are always a little busier.  Beyond that, I’ve had pastor search committee work to think about and do, neighbors to help and be present with, and one or two “home improvement projects” that have been therapeutic but also time-consuming.  No complaints, mind you.  I’m blessed to be surrounded by good people who work hard and love one another as best as they can.  But I do look forward to at least a slight calming-down sometime soon.
