Today I saw the house we lived in for six years. The cactus my wife planted in the front yard are really big now. Also, I hugged a dear person that I used to work with. Migdalia and I used to talk about the challenges of parenthood. She is the director of a Montessori school in San Antonio. I also walked around the church my wife and I served for eight years. Oh the memories that flooded me as I walked through those doors.
Tonight I sit in this city that used to be my home. My wife is at home...the place we live now. She is swamped with work. She is busy getting ready for a women's day retreat, needs to write a sermon and prepare for a Sunday School lesson as well as train two people to be leaders of the small groups for our capital campaign. I'm praying for her sanity tonight. We both have inherited a number of new responsibilities as two of our staff have left for new positions.
