Well, where am I now? I fly back to Port Elizabeth tonight. The weekend away has helped me a lot in terms of understanding the things with which I am struggling. I don't think that I am sufficiently refreshed, but I will cope. This morning and tonight I will spend time in setting goals for the next three months and probably for the next year. I received a phone call from SMMS last week, dealing with my studies, and it seems virtually certain that I will be at seminary next year, but in all probability for only one year. I think I can handle that - even enjoy it.
But now goals must be set - something I normally do at the beginning of a year. But now I need to be sure that I entrench the learning from this year and that I don't just move on to a new experience next year.
