It's been an incredibly busy last couple of weeks. It started off with getting the flu and being in bed for 4 1/2 days. Then there was the normal stuff of the ministry (sermon prep, new members class, meeting with prospective new members, etc.). On top of that, there was classis (with a very full agenda), as well as a wedding. And although the Lord's Day is a wonderful day of rest, there's not a whole lot of rest for the typical pastor. That's why Mondays are so nice...particularly, this week, with spring break for our children. We started out by going to the mall...then driving to take a peek at our friends' new home that they are building. Then we went to Costco, came back home, BBQ'd salmon on the grill (as well as bell peppers and pineapple). After that, we headed down to Zuanich Point Park here in Bellingham to watch the sunset (pictures below; remember, these pics are with an iPhone and not a great quality camera). Then we came home, had some strawberries and angel food cake, and in about 35 minutes, I'll be watching Jack Bauer save the world.
