Out of Time

For about the past year and a half I have been working over sixty hours per week. Because of this schedule, I'm chronically tired/exhausted. I realized recently that I don't do some of the things I used to enjoy doing such as exercising and reading. On top of that I'm not really involved in church life except on Sundays. Most concerning to me is my lack of time for my family. Because of all this I've got to do a better job of prioritizing how I spend the little free time I have. I cannot any longer justify blogging very frequently. Therefore, my blog post frequency, which has already been dropping, will continue to do so. Although I enjoy it, I just can't spend time on it any longer. You'll see posts from time to time, but not very often. If I do manage to find a different job with fewer hours I'll probably return to regular blogging. Now back to spending time with family.

Taking the Church to the Beach

Today I'm taking my wife and three kids to Tybee Island beach. Everyone in our family knows Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior; therefore, I can say that I'm taking the church to the beach. I don't know exactly what we are going to do, but there will be a lot of relaxing, playing in the surf, and building sand castles.

I grew up in western New York State, which is situated about seven hours from the closest ocean beach. Trips to the beach as a kid were a rarity. I absolutely love now living close to the ocean. We can make it to Tybee from our house in less than an hour.

The photo above is taken from the location on Tybee that we like to go. You can see the pier in the distance. Where we go is not crowded at all. Here we come!
