I woke up this morning (Sunday) around 4:30am. I didn't want to wake up that early, I just did.
I am going to have to find a way to come to terms with these long work weeks with weekends filled with activities if this is going to continue. The problem is fatigue. I was so tired at church this morning I could barely stay awake.
I know for a fact that tomorrow at work is a full day's worth of work. There are 5 truckloads of pipe to be hauled plus everything else.
I felt like doing nothing today. I got outside and watered plants and thought about putting up Christmas
lights, but quickly dismissed that idea. Sunday - going to take it easy.
One of the elders of the church "chased" me down today when I was leaving church. They are having a special ministry training seminar on Wednesday - teach people how to do altar ministry, he wanted to let me know that the church would like me to come to it.
I'm not opposed to it - but it's a weekday and I miss most of the small groups at this point because of late work days. I have also been involved in a great deal of altar ministry in my lifetime, but I guess a refresher course wouldn't hurt since I've been out of it so long. I explained to him my work situation and promised I would come if I wasn't held too long at work.
Church will, inevitably, begin to take up more and more of my time. By choice, of course. It won't supersede work of course, but it will supersede many other things if this path that I am on continues to go in the direction that it has been.
Well, it's time to go to sleep just before I start musing about the things of God and the wonder I have about where He will lead me to go and what to do with the rest of my life. Working a full time job may not be in that particular deck of cards.
