Long time, no blog

Whew! I made it through Holy Week. And I actually was able to enter into it and worship. The week before Holy Week seemed like "Unholy Week". It was quite stressful.
I had the incredible privilege of preaching the message for the Beaufort Fellowship of Churches' annual Easter sunrise service. I think I'm the first woman to give the message, although many other women have taken part in the service. We had about 150 in attendance on what was a pretty cold morning for April in NC. (I had frost on my car when I left house.)

My friend Angela sent me a little package a couple of weeks ago marking our 1 year return from Japan. Tomorrow night will mark the 1 year anniversary of when I had my first face-to-face conversation with the PNC of Grace Presbyterian Church. I was home visiting my family for Easter anyway, so it was a great time to schedule that meeting. Next Sunday will mark when I preached for the PNC at Wildwood Pres. Church. Obviously, all of that worked out very well! It really has been an amazing year!
