So, I’ve taken some time away from the blog. I know you’re asking, “Sean, what’s been on your mind.” The answer. Nothing! That’s why I haven’t written much lately. Believe me, I tried. But in truth, we’ve been kind of busy lately, and busyness is antithetical to thoughtfulness — at least for me.
In the the last month I had some good time with the family, we even took a rare family trip to my wife’s hometown, Phoenix. This last month I’ve spent some time reading and writing about pastoral care issues (and actually did some pastoral care), I’ve done some research into early Anabaptist baptismal theology and their union and break with Ulrich Zwingli. I read Chris Matthew’s book, “Life’s A Campaign.” I’m glad I checked it out from the library, because — even though it was a bestseller — it’s not that good a book! Rochelle’s mom spent some of her spring break with us. And to top it all off, I’ve been battling the flu. As a matter of fact, our oldest daughter, Malia, is home sick this morning.
Thankfully, we were able to get a much needed family picture taken over the past few weeks. I’d post-it, but the grandparents need to get their copies first before I throw it out on the net. Trust me, the girls look almost as cute as I do.
Anyway, I hope all is well with you. We’re doing our taxes this week. As Malia says, “That’s the poopiness!” So after the stress of tax season is over, I will return to the self-congratulatory work of blogging often so I can keep my readership up.
