I have one more Sunday and then my sabbatical begins. I have never looked forward to something this much in a long time. It is not that I dislike my job as a pastor, far from it, I just need to take a break. This last year has been difficult. The church has lost a beloved saint, I seem sickness after sickness in the others. It has been very taxing fro ma stress point of view trying to get a new vision going and to be honest I really need to reevaluate my direction personally. Simple put – time to take a break.
That said this month off has some things to be done. 1) Visiting an old friend’s sons graduation, 2) My wife and I’s 27th anniversary on June 10th and 3) My son’s wedding on June 17th. On top of that I need to clean the garage, work on my physical health and generally deal with some other issues.
The Spirit Rundown:
Celebration: Been a good weekend as we celebrated my son’ bachelor party and he has been up for the weekend. I will say no more.
Spiritual Disciplines: Lots of prayer but mostly mediation as I walk each day.
Leadership: I need to finish up the registration process to run for office of the local school board.
Ministry: One week till my time off.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
