Personal Update

  • I’ve been keeping a low profile this week - haven’t attended any meetings or groups, no visitations, and have had little contact with people. Too much stuff going on. Quite honestly, I am in need of some down time. We are in-between message series and it is very difficult for me to jump from one series to another without a mental break in-between. I’ve been maintaining office hours this week – but nothing more. I have used the extra time to detangle in my mind, get plenty of rest, and have some alone time. Plus, pulling back this week has also given me a chance to begin focusing on the next message series.

  • The comment incident messed with me a little bit too. It occupied too much of my thinking. I guess I’m not on his Christmas card list any longer. Oh well.

  • Took a run real early this morning. It was H-A-A-A-R-R-R-R-R-R-D. The humidity is a killer. It seems like a mass of humid air has settled on our area and won’t move out. I may as well be jogging in a sauna. When the weather is cool and dry I can run almost effortlessly. But when it is wet and humid like has been for the last week, it drains my strength quickly. But hey, I’m not complaining. At my age, I’m glad to be able to get out of bed in the morning.

  • I think a drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway is in my very near future.

  • PERFECTION: Demand it of yourself and you’ll always be dissatisfied. Demand it of others and you’ll always be disappointed.
