I have had a pretty good week but things are kind of chaotic right now. The roofers have been working on our house for the last three days and are supposed to be done today but it means a noisy and busy time. It means also I has been hard to write and I have got a few things that must be written this week but I may have to skip a few things in light of the situation. I also have been holding off on a few things of interest because of waiting to see what happens.
Ministry: It is odd to simply be a pastor of one church but now a support pastor so to speak for another. I am a little off as far as what I feel about all this because the second guy kind of came out of the blue. From my perspective it’s almost like I got a consolation prize because as far as I knew I was going to be the guy after the interim finished up and then I am having take a more supporting role and he is taking the lead. I can live with it but it is not completely what I was looking for as I was looking to take on two projects in order to support my family better. Now I am probably going to be looking for another job part-time but I don’t want something that interferes with school which is coming in Fall. It has made a messy but interesting situation. Something off my check list but I think it may have created another list that is even longer.
Leadership: I was officially given the word yesterday that I am on the Mecosta-Osceola Intermediate School District (MOISD) Board as Reed City’s representative. My term starts July 1st. I am glad that I have this on my plate. I was getting pretty restless on Mondays with nothing to do so this is a welcome addition. I have a learning curve this year for sure but the next six years should be interesting. Off my check list and now on my working list.
Celebration: June 10th is my wife and I’s 26th anniversary. I am amazed how time passes but it has been a great ride so far.
Spiritual Disciplines: I am very focused on getting some guidance through all this through prayer and meditation and I think it is helping but I am also aware that God expects us to make decisions and honors them good or bad.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
