I'm at my desk again this morning. I am trying to set aside a morning in the week to prepare for the weekend services. I have had mixed success with this in the past, but I need to figure out how to get it right this year. Tomorrow is Friday, which is my day off, so there is a little bit of TGIF in my heart this morning.
I have already done some admin and made some calls this morning - realising that some stuff is just not going to wait, sermon prep day or not. And I intend to guard my day off, so I'd rather be flexible with today. I am also realising that my attempts to divide the day into work, free and sleep are not helping. A meeting last night left me with plenty to think about and I struggled to sleep - how do I log that time? Can I give myself a bit of leeway this morning because I am feeling wrecked? Not that the sermon will prepare itself!
It's not easy, but I am starting to figure things out. And I am depending on God big time.
