It’s been a while. Life has been… well,Â life, and has been full of priorities elsewhere. I’ve mentioned beforeÂ that I don’t always get to post as I’d like, but still. Five months?
We’ve been adjusting to Lebanon and learning the things and, surprise! That and seventy kids make a full life. Add a small business to that and I can’t even tell you what you get. Maybe you get crazy. Which is probably why I’ve been away so long.
Anyway, as weâ€™re figuring out this new life-of-many-hatsâ€¦ one of the neatest things has been the chance meetings and lovely people along the way. Thatâ€™s how I “met” Kris, actually.Â She heard about our work in Lebanon through Serious Creatures and asked if we would share with her Grace Table readers. Of course. And weâ€™d love to. And thanks, Kris.
This post was complicated for me. There’s the part of selecting from aÂ million tiny experiences and then whittling one into a short telling. Then there’s the part where, like the man entrusted with the single mina, I’m condemned by my refusal to act on knowledge I really do have. Writing this post is changing me on the inside, still.
If you have a minute, check out the post over at Grace Table. And linger a while after reading… Kris has a fantastic group of contributors with a wide variety of perspectives. I bet you’ll find a little something extra while you’re there.
