I can't believe that it is nearly two months since I posted anything on my blog. Things have just been SO hectic lately - a case of "time's fun while you're having flies" (according to frogs), perhaps?
I'm sure that hard-core bloggers will probably believe that if you are too busy to blog, you are too busy - full stop! That is certainly true of the last couple of months. So much has happened - the ministry work in the Glenanda refugee camp, the Circuit six-monthly accounts, the Synod report ... not to mention the "normal" stuff like conducting services, attending meetings, etc.
It's a good thing that my wife has photographs of me sometimes! When people ask her how she'll cope if the Methodist church decides to send me to some far-flung place to start my probation as a minister, her answer will probably be: "Pretty much the same as I do now!"
On the bright side, last weekend my Mom was at a Lay Witness mission, my son was sleeping over at a friend, and Itumeleng had given me the weekend off (my first this year), so Belinda and I were *alone* - wonderful!
There is much for me to catch up on, and little time in which to do it in, but watch this space. As Arnold Schwarzenegger said once, "I'll be baack..."
Thank you Madiba - There remains something remarkable and deeply influential about the name of Nelson Mandela. Perhaps we don't all realise yet, because he only passed away ...
