Time away for a time

Dear Friends,
I much enjoy writing this blog, and finding the photos and artwork that fits; it is part of my spiritual discipline (even the political stuff), and it gives me pleasure to know when others are reading this. Lately, though, life at St. Paul's has been unusually intense, and I am not giving this space what I'd like to give it.

I will be heading out to see my mother and sister and nephew later this week. I am in need of a breather as I tend to my family and catch my breath a little. So consider this a sabbath from the blog for a bit. Please check back in a few days when we pick this up again. And thank you for keeping my family in your prayers. See you here soon.

Blessings to all,

Dear Jim,

Travel safely. May you be lifted by the wings of the Holy Spirit as you tend to your family. And may you be nourished by the landscapes and friends that are of your home in California.

Thank you for all that you have brought to and nourished in us at St. Pauls.

Traveling mercies and I look forward to your return.

Jim and Lori,

Safe travels. We will miss you (and your blog posts). Best wishes for your mother's health and for your time together.

We'll miss you but it's good that you were able to get away when you needed to. I'm praying for you and your family.

Just want to echo the other comments here. Know that we're praying for you, too.

I'm glad you took a blog sabbath--glad both because you need to take care of yourself in addition to us and also because it gave me a chance to catch up on your posts. I was way behind. :-)
