Where does it all go?

The time, that is.

I love this time of year, because I love the holiday season. I live all year for this season, anticipating, planning, deciding on gifts for family and friends, and getting ready in my heart. But here is the secret that nobody tells you about...

The holiday season, when you are working in a church office, is mass chaos! Well, not so much chaos, because I can't function like that, but constantly on the go, constantly moving, planning the next special service, the next Christmas event.

Who is taking care of the live Nativity, and do they have it ready?
Do we have the labels to put on the stuff we are selling at the Christmas bazaar?
Have we ordered the books for advent?
Have we ordered the advent candles?

And the list goes on.

Now, don't get me wrong, I THRIVE on this kind of busyness, so I am not complaining. I just wanted to let you all know that if I am not commenting on your blogs, if my blogging gets a bit more sporadic, it is probably because I am somewhere in the church hanging up decorations or printing bulletins, or one of the myriad of other tasks that this season brings.

I am still here, I promise :)


  1. I guess I can put away my box of tissues because you aren't commenting then. ;) Dude, I hear ya. I am so freaking crazy busy. I am totally not able to keep up with all of my blogs. I think I am off the market for new ones because I can't keep my head above water with the ones I follow. Some days I have to opt out of reading them all and it makes me feel bad. Oh well, life comes first. When you're here, so am I. :)

    Good luck with getting everything ready!


  2. Sounds like my mom (and used to be me before I moved) - she's the church secretary as well, so I can't imagine how busy you must be! Good luck and will pray for you!

  3. I found I have gotten busier this week, too! I just love the holiday much to be thankful for, especially the birth of Christ! Don't worry if you can't comment, we all understand perfectly! :)

    (Hey, just noticed my blog on your blog exciting! Thank you! :) )

  4. The Nativity = Rush hour for churches. :D
