Yesterday was the first Sunday in a long time since I was able to just spend time with the family after Sunday Celebrations here in Ann Arbor. Since the Northwestern students have Spring Break and the fact that I needed a personal break, it was good for me to stay home.
In a weird and funny way, at first I didn’t know what to do because I got so used to traveling every Sunday the last 5 some months – I think I really had withdrawal symptoms! But it was good for me to take a break. Also, I knew that the church was in good hands with some of our staff guys out there.
So I spent some time with family and had a Sunday meal together. It was all worthwhile towards the end of the day when one of the kids said, “Yea, daddy stayed home today instead of going to Chicago.” Translation = “it was good to have you here today.”
