After two weeks of vacation, it's back in the saddle.
My gang traveled from Kansas to Ohio to see my side of the family. The kids enjoyed seeing their nephews and nieces. They went to the pool a lot. My wife and I got some special time away. I saw some old friends. And after 20 years, I got to play a round of golf at Coldstream Country Club, the private golf course I worked at during my junior high and high school years.
Now, the pastoral work of shaping souls resumes.
It's nice to go away. And it's great to come back home.
