breakEven though I have been quiet on my blog this summer, these last few months have been anything but silent. Between a couple of trips to the Northeast, a beach trip with  students from our church, participating in the engagement of a friend, a trip to Virginia to see old friends, working on some other writing projects and of course all of my family and church responsibilities, this summer has been a bit of a blur.

Somewhere along the way, I decided to take my own summer break from my blog to ensure that I had space and margin to tend to these other things. I have also been working on refreshing the look of my blog and hope to have a new look sometime this fall.

Thank you to all of you who read the things I post. I look forward to posting more in the months ahead.
