Family and Ministry

Is It Possible to Have a "Balanced Life"?

Have you ever come home after a long-good day of ministry just to find a pile of laundry or dirty dishes (some days both) waiting for you? What an instant and humbling reminder that I wear other "important hats" other than being a pastor! The moment I walk into my messy home, I realize that I am not all that put together as I portray myself to be after all. But hey, that's life, and those dishes and dirty clothes can wait for my sanity and PEACE at home.
