It’s Thursday. The end of another busy week, in a string of busy weeks. I walked into my office this morning, plopped down my iPad and keys and books. And then, I looked at my desk. OH BOY! It was a mess. Papers everywhere, books, bibles, hymnals. There were piles of sermons from the past weeks’ funerals. There were bags for the PACK IT UP program that the ALIVE Youth Group decorated last night. A bunch of mail that I did not feel like dealing with (and hadn’t for a while!). Ideas for Youth Group, Sunday School, sermons, financial campaigns, postcards to send out, neon orange strips of paper with notes all over them.
