Yes, yes. It has been quite a while since my last post.  I have not kept my part of the deal of posting every week. I get so caught up with "other stuff" that I just put it off and think "I'll just get to that later."  Then "Later" never comes.  So then I think "Is it really that important?" or "Does it really matter or make a difference?" and I convince myself that I am OK without it and that it is no big deal anyway.  All the while, knowing that I had made a promise that I am failing to keep.  This seems to be a pattern in my life.  I will get all gung-ho about something then when it looses its shiny newness or I get distracted by something else, I forget about it. 
     I think I do that with my relationship with God sometimes too.  I will get all excited about spending time with Him and learning more about Him, and that will go great for a while. Then I will get caught up in doing things for Him and not with Him.  Instead of spending my time focusing on Him and who He is and what He has done and is doing in my life, I get wrapped up in the going and doing things for Him.  When that becomes my focus, not God, I have things all backwards.  Yes, God wants us to do things, but with Him not just for Him.  He wants us to be so in tune with Him that we can't help but let His love flow out of us because we can't keep it in anymore.  
     We are getting ready to start our crazy fun Summer full of camps and traveling and being on the road ALOT.  This is one our favorite times of the year! Spending time with kids of all ages and worshiping with them and teaching them about worship.  My prayer this summer is that I will not get so involved with doing things for God but spending time with Him too.  I will also do better at keeping you involved in that process.  Thanks for listening and thank you for your prayers and support as we go on this journey together!
     See you on the road!
