I feel a desire, perhaps a need right now to refocus.
Focus down toward my children.
Focus across at my husband.
Focus forward at the next 8 1/2 weeks of ministry.
Always and constantly a focus heavenward.
Yes, there must be more of that.
The lapse could be short lived. Perhaps not. I'll still be around. The need for more presence in other places, with other people is more pressing than the need here. Certainly. A break for this Mama is necessary. Email, FB, old school telephones are still just a click away - as am I.
For now, in this moment of this glorious sunshine-filled evening with the hum of the mower in the background and the shrieks of the children ever joyful, it is clear that my presence is needed elsewhere. And there it shall remain for a brief time.
