Twitch...

Have you ever had your eyebrow twitch? I do. It's not an everyday thing, but I've had it happen for over a week before. It came back yesterday. It's been intermittent. but today, during our staff meeting, I really was getting frustrated. I think it's stress related. This week is a doozy. I've mentioned it already - that this is one of those weeks where everything comes together - but not exactly in a good way. There are a lot of great things happening, and had they been happening, say, in consecutive weeks, they'd each be awesome. But when they converge - it kinda makes you crazy.

Going down our Order of Worship - I've got 5 stars beside things I'm doing. That includes the sermon. I've got a meeting tonight, one tomorrow night, a possible meeting Sunday BEFORE worship (if tomorrow night's meeting doesn't net enough Elders for a quorum) then a potluck after church for young families - which is either going to be awesome or a mess - we'll see. Then of course, I've been invited to the Bengals game that afternoon. So, the day could either end up as a smashing success - or with me smashing my head against a brick wall somewhere in Cincy.

In either event, I'm just hoping my eyebrow will quit twitching...

D.O.N.

As I read your post I was thinking I was going to tell you to slow down. Then I got to the part about the Bengals game and I didn't worry about you too much.

Hey let's find a time to connect via the phone or in person in the next couple of months. I would love to have the opportunity to fly you down to speak to the youth group. You can tell them how great I am. Just kidding it would be fun to reconnect.

We're heading out to San Diego tomorrow morning for the National Youth Workers convention. I'm starting to feel old. But, a great staff going and I feel lucky every day.

I will keep you in my prayers in the next 72+ hours. I just came off one of those weeks and I still feel burned out from it. I feel like I want to crawl into a hole for a month...

My prayer is that the Lord would strengthen you and guide you as you prepare and practice your sermon and pull everything else together.
