A Third of a Year

It’s been some time. I must confess that I didn’t think it would be this long. I’ve taught some classes and there have been blessing all around.
There has also been great sadness. A friend was shot and killed this week while at work and another friend is facing his second great battle for his life.
Longfellow said that into everyone’s life a little rain must fall. I think the poem says a lot about my present feelings.
I find that faith is no longer an albatross around my neck. Instead, it has become a great comfort. I tend to worry about things that are out of my control. Into this worry, a good passage and a ton of faith go a long way to refresh my soul.
There are times I still feel burned out, but there are more times that I feel tired from many good things that happened from the day.
I hope it will not be another four months til I write again.
