So over the last few weeks I've been reluctant, or at least disinterested in blogging. I'm still reading blogs and heavily plugged in through twitter and facebook. But for some reason I've found myself avoiding posting a blog myself. I'm not sure why. God's been doing incredible stuff all around me. He's been challenging me and encouraging me. Usually when I don't blog it's because I've found myself in a difficult spot or stagnant place spiritually. That's not the case now. It's just not in me to sit each day and post like it's been for the last two years. It's probably a healthy thing.
It’s Probably Healthy
I am busier than I've been in a while. Lots of transition, improvement and new responsibilities have increased my work load. The double edged sword of success (or the appearance of success) is more trust and responsibility. As Andy Stanley says (thanks to Mark Batterson for reminding us) "The more leadership you assume the less certainty and more complexity you'll experience." This certainly seems to be the case for me lately.
However, despite all the great things going on at Northwood Church, I still find myself captured by the incredible and awe inspiring blessing of another child. Today we had a follow up appointment (everything looks great btw) and we got to hear our baby's heartbeat for the second time. There just aren't words.
So to finish on a completely different subject, let me know if you're hoping to be in the Charleston area any time this summer. I'd love to connect with you. I'll even buy you a latte (at Atlanta Bread Company because they dominate Starbucks. At least when it comes to Vanilla Lattes).
