I think I can blog this …

23 Jul

It might be obvious that I haven’t blogged much lately.  Or posted to Twitter for that matter …  And, yes, there is a reason.

First of all, Dad seems to be doing a little better.  He was more alert this weekend than I’ve seen him in a long time.  And I was thankful he understood that he couldn’t go to Montgomery … It was also good for Mom to have a chance to get out of town, even if it was just for 30 hours.  I really appreciate my little sister and her husband for coming up and helping this happen by staying with Dad.

The Montgomery trip was … interesting.  But I really enjoyed getting to see my nephew and my niece.  They seemed to really appreciate it!  Jake reports today to Del Rio, Texas.  It will probably be a while before we see him again.

In the past few weeks, some good things have happened at Ebenezer and some hard things.  I guess you have to focus on the good things, and on where God is calling, and press on through the hard ones.  I never will understand the mentality that expects my family to be second-class citizens.  In an ideal world, they would just be seen as who they are!  Just regular church members!  That is one of the toughest things that a pastor ever faces.

This week, our new church administrator began her service to EBC.  And she is already making a difference!  One of the greatest things about this is it will free me up to actually do more MINISTRY!!

    I am so glad that your dad is doing better, I know what it’s like to worry about your family.

    I believe that in a normal world (let alone perfect) you and your family would be treated with the utmost respect and nothing short of that. Anyone who thinks otherwise is in need of our prayers and a serious “come to Jesus” with somebody. I can’t imagine why anyone would think that a man of God, which you so obviously are, should not be worthy of the utmost respect. Please know that those of us who are on the outside looking in are praying for you and your family. We are also praying for this church. Sometimes the “hard thing” is the best thing, but that doesn’t make it the easy thing.

    May God Bless and keep you,

    T
