Well, it has been a whole week since I had surgery. I have gone from moving slowly to moving almost normally and I even got a 30 minute walk in today. I am recovering well and pretty much pain-free. The only thing I have to watch is how much lift. I have a doctor’s appointment in three days and so I am looking forward to that at this point. I still find it necessary to take a nap each day which is not usual for me so it must be the healing process.
I have been trying to find a system of approach to my new system of goals based on the roles I am trying to achieve. My thoughts center on going through the roles one at a time each day and asking myself how I am going to make progress on them that day and once I have made some progress that day I move to the next role. I will have to see how it works tomorrow but I need something that keeps me on task.
The Spirit Rundown:
Leader – I need to get the petition done and filed. After that it is all about campaigning. That said, even though I missed the MOISD meeting, I may have some business to do their in a week. Can’t say much else about it but it is the first time I have been called in to help solve a problem.
Minister – I had a long heart to heart with the church council this Sunday after church. It made the meeting probably twice as long but I outlined my financial, professional and relational concerns. The main issue is that in about two years I will be in a position where I can search for another job and/or continue my education. My degree in hand, I can go wither way. If the church is going well and I am in a better position based on the three things above, then I will probably pursue my Master’s Degree and continue to pastor the church. If not, well I may have to; by necessity, get another job and pursue my Master’s Degree which would probably necessitate me leaving the church which I do not want to do. I think everyone yesterday took what I said to heart and they are all spending their time reflecting on it. I guess in time we will see how much it affected them.
Theologian – I took the last two days off from blogging this weekend and it felt good in a sense. I want to write deep posts when I can and I really don’t want to get into writing crap just to write again. That said I am also considering weekend writing on this blog to be optional and not mandatory. I then would write two posts, minimum Monday through Friday. It might make things in other areas a little more easier to carry.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
