Back in January I went through a period of dealing with kidney stones. Docs had me try to pass it naturally the first couple of weeks and eventually went after it via surgery and couldn’t see it. I spent 5 days on the mend only to find out that it went back to the same place it was stuck before the surgery. I switched doctors and tried some new medicines and it eventually passed. I have to tell you that those were three long weeks that I hope to never repeat.
Since then I have been trying to catch up with life – work, family, and other responsibilities. It seems I have very little time to write anymore but I am trying to work on that. I am hoping by summer to have more freedom in my ‘non-work’ hours.
Some fun things to mention:
- My wife and I have started a small study group on Sunday nights and we are working through the book of Ruth. What a great study. I had begun a similar study about 18 months back but didn’t get to finish it so I am looking forward to getting through the whole book this go around.
- I have been working with the youth pastor of the church we have been attending since September to try to start a youth study on Sunday mornings. Could use your prayers over this as starting anything new can take time.
- I continue to meet with a group of men on Wednesday evenings. It is such an encouragement to see where some of the guys are now compared to where they were just a year ago. God is at work and having the ability to look back and see what He has been accomplishing is such a blessing.
So.. be patient with me as I get my feet under me from a time standpoint and I will finish the series about my daughter’s birth and move on to some other fun things to discuss.
