Tired Confession

I am so physically exhausted. We’ve just finished the 4th night of our church conference, and we had Children’s Ministry for all 4 nights. I’ve tried to keep up my marathon training during this conference, so last night I was out late running on a lighted street after dark. The week was a great time, but it’s encouraging to know that we only do it once a year! I did get to sit in one of the ‘adult’ sessions, and Brady Boyd really had a great word. I could listen to that man preach more often, he’s right up my alley. The conference is great for the church and really brings in other churches in our area, so it’s nice to see the city come together for a special event.

It’s been a hard week for me because I’ve missed 3 t-ball games while working the conference. I’ve always prided myself on being that parent that ALWAYS puts my family first, but I simply couldn’t make it happen this week. Tonight I missed Ryan’s team beating the previous unbeaten RiverCats in the championship game. I feel sick that I wasn’t there, but I’ll try and make it up somehow. It’s just frustrating when these things collide.
