Recharging the Batteries
Sometimes you just have to get away. After almost five weeks of great ministry in Central and Southern Mexico, my wife and some friends joined me for a week of relaxation in Huatulco, Mexico.
These are a few of the pix. I hope they give you a good idea of what it was like. Now before you all go figuring I am some sort of ricochon with an ability to stay at places like this all the time, just know that when you have three or four couples willing to go in together, live a little give and take, and show some grace to each other, it can be pretty affordable.

We hung out, played cards, took a tour of a coffee plantation, spent a day on the water fishing, snorkeling and visiting empty beaches, and relaxed. I am so thankful that I can get a chance to take some time like this and enjoy it with my wife of over 30 years, Chelle.
But now I am back at the daily grind. Reconnecting on Facebook, catching up on the almost 400 e-mails that were awaiting my return, getting ready for a ministry board meeting this weekend, and working on a sermon for Sunday.
Now I understand what people mean when they say they need a vacation from the return from vacation!
