Yes, I know I have been gone for a long time. I can’t promise how long I will be here now. But I have lots of new things to share since we last spoke.
I’ve been pastoring in FL now for almost 2 years – time is flying by. I love this renewed passion I have been given for God and His Son and the Word. I love helping people, discipling people, seeing how God works in others’ lives. I am so blessed in this season of my life.
I’m still hanging out with Devoted Spouse. In about a week or so we will celebrate 32 years of wedded bliss. Again, time flies.
I’m posting this outside of my blog – so, having not looked at any posts, I don’t quite remember where I left off. Be patient if I sound like a broken record.
My world turned upside down last September when EmmaLou, Golden Destroyer passed away from bone cancer. We had taken extraordinary measures to help her live with this disease. I lost friends because of some of my decisions and choices concerning EmmaLou. They weren’t really friends. Looking back, would I take the same actions? Maybe, maybe not. At the time, I believed I had her best interests at heart. Now, I have the advantage of hindsight and lots of prayer time. Truthfully, much of what I did was for my own needs, not hers. Not real proud of that. I even went to her grave and apologized to her for what I put her through. And, I’ve forgiven myself over this, finally. I miss my fur-best friend every day.
That’s enough catching up for now.
