The New Season of Life is Crazy Beautiful

Betcha thought I had quit blogging.'s just that the month-long break I had planned to take became 4 months!  I won't give you a long and boring recap of "What I Did Over the Summer Break", but the synopsis is: A few awesome things, a lot of annoying stuff (like 1 a few about 20 too many food allergy reactions), and not nearly enough fun and relaxation.  I plan to make up for that last part this Fall :)

One awesome thing - Youth Mission Trip to Manitoba in early July.  Here's a post-thunderstorm picture I took...

I know, right? I often wonder why we don't see fashion and decorating influenced by "sunset colors" more often, but I guess we could never translate it as well as the Creator!

He's been O-fficialy "Prayed Out"â�¦truly bles... on TwitpicAnother different-but-awesome thing is that the hubster's title has changed.  He is still Associate Pastor, but his ministry focus has changed from "Youth & Christian Education" to "Discipling & Family Relations".  The students had a fun little "Not Going Away Party" for him and "prayed him out" as they traditionally do with the graduated seniors their last year at camp. It's a little bittersweet, as we'll miss working directly with students...but we are both excited about God calling us in a different direction in ministry and all of the opportunities and challenges that await.

Speaking of changes, what do you think of the blog's "new do"? I really liked the clean look previously, but just needed a little more spunk and color for awhile. I've still got a little work to do, but I'm enjoying it so far.

It's good to be back...I'll not stay away so long again.  Have a beautiful day!
