"Teach us how short our lives really are so that we may be wise." Psalm 90:12

After an unintentional and lengthy break from my blog, I'm returning. Or at least I'm going to attempt it. I've really missed it, and apparently some of you have too. I've gotten more than several hints! :) So, here I am finally!

The quick pace of life has made me realize just how short our lives really are. And what we do with our limited time is crucial. I'd like to say that because I haven't spent endless hours on a computer blogging that I've been making the most of my time. Hopefully, that is mostly true. But, inevitably, at the end of the day, I feel like things are left undone, words are left unspoken, and I've probably missed or forgotten something. One lesson learned is that I cannot do everything - especially everything I think I should be doing! But, lately I've found myself feeling like so much has happened in the blink of an eye. As if I've just awoken from what I thought was a brief nap to find that weeks have passed. When did my baby become a 2-yr old with the ability to carry on a conversation with me? Have we really been in Seattle almost a year? And those pictures STILL have not been hung? I could go on.....

Time is certainly flying! And it is of the utmost importance to be diligent and intentional with what time I am given. So, in all that I do, whether work or play, I am striving to be wise with my time, tending to the most important, which is not always the most immediate or the most obvious. Anything left undone after that... well, I just have to be okay with it.

Tina!! I was just thinking about you this morning as I woke up. . wondering how you are. . . and sorry that I haven't checked in lately to KNOW how you are!!! I am praying for your continued strength and that you will walk in the Spirit today--having all knowledge and insight of God's good and perfect will--for TODAY. Your girls are so big--and they are adorable!! I wish I could hug them and talk to them!! I can only begin to imagine all that occupies your time from early to late--but know that I am so proud of how God is using YOU in Seattle and I am so honored to be your FRIEND!! Love ya!! Have a really, really good day!

Great to hear from you! I've been checking for weeks and weeks for an update. Have been praying for all of you with Connect Church Seattle. How did the first Sunday night service at the new location go? Please keep us updated!
