And heading into Lent, that is nectar that I will need!
It is now Wednesday morning.
I am getting ready to head out at 6:30 AM for a 7:30 AM Eucharist, after getting home at 11:30 PM from a vestry meeting. I found my wife at the kitchen table working on the church's new website in order to bring it online by the end of the week. We then sat for a half hour doing edits on the screen...And then spent another half hour talking and thinking about it in bed. Then, I went to sleep thinking about the pastoral calls and meetings I have for today. I might get home before six, I hope...But only if I skip youth group (but only because I need to get home to do my own edits on the website---so, still working). Thing is, I love it all. From soup to nuts, this is the best vocation I can imagine. Just sometimes, I get tired. Just like anybody else with a 60+ hour a week job. Yeah, I only work on Sundays.
