In the midst of summer flurry, pondering this.....

"Following the Lord may mean leaving behind things we really care about--things that seem worthwhile but are not God's best." Sally Clarkson There is nothing new under the sun. When I look back at some of the things I have written, it speaks to me still as a thought worth pondering. And so this was as a friend posted it on twitter as something I wrote. It is exactly where I am right now--the pruning stage.

I have so many wonderful blessings and people and opportunities, but only one life to live well.

I will write soon about all that I learned while I was out of the country, but meanwhile, spending time with my family in the whirl and swirl of summer.  Hoping you are all having a great summer so far.
