Monday Potpourri

How or why is pastoring more challenging than any other profession? I'm about to answer that question today. I'm blogging over at Pastoring Partners Network today and if you're interested you can read my post, Why Pastoring Is Harder, there.

Speaking of hard things...we have been without A/C for four days now. In temperatures up to 91 degrees. It has rained some this weekend which made it somewhat more bearable. Our A/C needed to be replaced. It has already been repaired twice and this time it couldn't be. So, we are supposed to get it installed today. I am hoping the family can sleep well tonight. In the meantime I have counted it all joy and kept my mind on friends in other countries, and even one friend in the USA, who does not have A/C. What new compassion it has given me for them. Right now it's 89 inside our house and even the dogs are just laying here, tongues hanging out, although I have given them plenty of ice water. Cold showers have been my bff. I have hesitated to do my hair or put on makeup the last four days because by the time I finished my hair was wet again or my makeup shining or running. Quite a number of wonderful friends have offered to host us the last few days in their home but I couldn't imagine leaving the dogs.

Speaking of the dogs, several people have asked that I post a photo of them. So, here you have it:

Max takes a rest on Daddy's chair.


Maddie seems surprised by the camera. Not sure if she was prepared for this photo. LOL


I know, I know...they're just the sweetest. 

Much love,
