Crazy busy week

I'm leaving again this morning for another 3 days, for the women's breakaway in Orlando. Joy and I are going to stay together and in addition to seeing all of my other friends, I am really looking forward to rooming with her and spending time together. It's always a blessing but especially right now it's a great encouragement to me.

I was so tired after church last night. I was running on 3 hours sleep and did the Fusion service last night which went real well as usual. But WOW, was I ever tired!

Larry will be holding things down on the homefront these next three days and when I get home Saturday night I'll have to spring into action to get last minute things lined up for Sunday. Most everything for church is done however I'll have things like getting all of our clothes ironed and ready for Sunday, and making a dish for the choir dinner on Sunday. (I usually make my chicken and dumplings...them love 'em, so it's sort of become tradition now.)

Right now I am going to enjoy the weekend but my thought is, "Lord, just let me get to Monday and then give me even just one night's real rest..."

I love ministry but I need regular down time and lately it's been in short supply. Coming out of Unstoppable I really needed an extra amount of it to get better completely. I'm still not there and am just praying that in the next few weeks I can be more intentional about resting more to get completely back on track.

I've learned the past few months just how amazing God's grace and strength are.

And I always SAY I'm never going to plan major events back to back, but every year it ends up happening somehow. I'll get to rest again sometime in January, lol!!!

Viva la ministry, I guess :o).
