I just returned from a quick trip down south. Some of the highlights:
Both Flights: The quiet time on the two hour flights affords me completely uninterrupted times to get work done (and the opportunity for pleasure reading at take-off and landing when, “portable electronic devices must be in the ‘off’ position”).
Monday coffee and Wednesday Lunch with an old friend from college; able to catch up, but also talk through some potential ministry projects.
Monday Lunch with one of my old roommates from college… we have walked different paths, but it was excellent to get together and share our stories, I pray I have the opportunity to stay in touch with him.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday: great times at the SoCal office making progress on a couple projects.
Tuesday: Project planning/dreaming at the office… I even got to do a “press check” at the printers. Plus I completed my outline for the camp I am speaking at in a couple weeks.
I enjoyed times with my in-laws each of these days; great meals together in the evenings (Outback one night and a great stew the second night by my Mom-In-Law).
It is very nice to be back home with my family now as I push to get the Youth Leaders Notebook done and sent out.
For those in Western WA, enjoy the Snow!
