Returning to an Old Role

Four or five years ago, Tawm and I led the worship when we first started Antioch Baptist Church. Tawm sang, I played guitar. But not long after, Tim, (now our church secretary) played. Tim is now expecting her first child and is struggling with some pretty bad morning sickness. As a result, I've had to play guitar for worship a couple times so far and will continue to play for the next little while.
The first time I played, I didn't know until the day before Sunday. Normally, this isn't a big deal but I hadn't played the guitar in a looooooonnnngg time and so by the end of worship, my fingers were killing me and my strumming finger was bleeding. [Just taking one for the team :)]
I enjoy helping with worship, but I like being in the audience better because when I'm playing, I have to think about what I'm playing that I can't sing in Thai and as a result, I don't feel like I really get an opportunity to worship God. It also makes for a long Sunday morning as I teach Sunday School, help with worship and then preach. But I'm glad that I can serve God in this way.
I'm excited that our church is going to have a couple kids younger than Owen in the near future, but am looking forward to when someone can take the role of guitar player away from me.

A Post of Excuses

It has been a long time since my past post, probably one of the longest since I started "seriously" blogging. I could come up with a whole bunch of excuses but the main reason for the lack of blogging in the new year has been a lack of desire to blog because I just don't feel like I have anything to say. Facebook has become my new place to post pics and videos and so Owen updates have become less necessary here too.
This post is a post of hope, hoping that these few words will get me back into the blogging spirit or not. Time will tell. Until then... :)
