There have been many changes for me this year. Naomi is finishing up Kindergarten and getting ready for her first full days of school in 1st grade. And we are expecting a new addition to the family come October. The pressures of the many upcoming events and the lack of my partner physically by my side has led to my reevaluation of my duties and responsibilities this year. I have decided to lay off several of my obligations in order to reassess priorities and figure out what is the best direction for my family.
Other changes have also taken place this year. As some of you know I spent the majority of last year invested in a book writing project on a subject near and dear to my heart - femininity. After submitting my work for a theological evaluation I received my first feedback in that category. The verdict was... the work is "biblically sound". This truly made my heart soar. I do not know what God has planned next but I have a feeling that all too soon I may be busier than I expected. This has also contributed to my decision to take a period of rest and to store up "provisions" for what is to come. So I hope everyone can understand my decision to "take it easy". I am not isolating myself or depressed; in fact it is quite to the contrary. I am excited about whatever it is God has in store. I am enjoying my sojourn through the wilderness because I know that at the end of the long journey is the promised land.
