A Lot Going On.....

It’s very busy for us today, and will be all week long. Easter weekend is the biggest event on our annual calendar, so the week before is always a flurry of activity. We are fully engaged in weekend preparations, selecting and learning new music, band rehearsal, sermon preparation, changing the stage design, completing the beautification of our campus grounds, working out the final details for all age-level ministries, running extra copies of everything, and generally ramping up the whole program.

In addition, we are having to give attention to six families that are experiencing health-related emergencies right now; there was a death in our church family Sunday night; one elderly man has been hospitalized with a mild heart attack; another woman had very critical surgery yesterday; two other families from our church are right now at the bedside of loved ones who are near death; and another elderly gentleman has just been rushed to the hospital with congestive heart failure.

Needless to say, we are spread pretty thin.

I took this picture in my yard this morning before I came in to work. It’s a flowering crabapple tree. A bright spot in my day.
