At the end of sabbatical week 2, Krista and the kids came down to join me for the weekend. I can already tell that this journey is good for me. I feel much more present with them than I was in the months leading up to this break.

I have missed my family so much! One important commitment I’ve made is to do whatever I have to do to come home at the end of the work day and be present with these people that God has blessed me with.

The time goes too fast. We’re losing our marbles (that will only make sense to some of you family ministry folk). Thankful for this time of rest and recovery, and for my family who has been super supportive.
