Do you ever have those weeks--well, of course you do.
Literally, from Friday to about Tuesday around 5:00 I was so discombulated FOR. NO. APPARENT. REASON. I totally blew writing my prayer for prayerpals, I forgot an important appointment on Tuesday at noon, I messed up submitting a contribution to a blog that I only need to remember once in awhile.
On Sunday, we had the reception of new members--and my colleague sent me the outline to place in the bulletin. I felt there was something missing, but the service bulletin was so packed, I guess I thought I was simplifying things. Turns out, before worship, that I had left three elements out, because of the way the outline opened on my computer earlier that week. We didn't lose anything, and it wasn't a big deal, but
I am usually pretty good with details--although I am no where near OCD. So feel bad. And I am sorry to have let others down. I hate that. I hate that it all looks irresponsible. Or at least, not together.
I have snapped somewhat out of it--I've had some breathing room today, and am crossing t-s and dotting i's .
What else. Holy Week is upon us. For most, this is a hectic time. We have all our bulletins finished for the services next week. I am not preaching NOT once in the four services we will have in the next seven days. I haven't been a participant in planning them, except to proof the bulletins. (no, really, o.k., yes, I do have mixed feelings about this....) I am really not used to the idea of using the same outlines every year, but I guess that's tradition. Sometimes I like to bust out of the routine, you know? Enough of this line of thought, for now.
Well, it's an absolutely gorgeous day, and I have to go the office supply store. Luckily, it is next to Starbucks....am thinking to swing by TJ's too, and get some groceries before my next meeting.
