Serene Sunday

Sunday, February 23, 2014

Had a long distance call today and a friend will be coming from out west to visit in mid-May. Then watched the Canada Gold Medal Men's Hockey win.... Woohoo! Didn't watch a lot of Olympics, but did see both the men and women's last periods.

Went to church and have been approached to be church clerk. Knowing how mean people have been to my friend, who retired because of it, doesn't put me in a place that I envy. I know there's not really anyone else, but I don't need the complaint, disrespect, unappreciation and bullying... I've had enough of that in my work life and this is only volunteer.

REad last of one of my books for my papers.... creating a desire for me to learn more and more...

    Good to hear you had a good Sunday. I am sorry about the clerk position at your church. It might be a good thing if they cannot find someone to fill the position; it might raise awareness of the problem. The problem can only be fixed through awareness and I am sure, not everyone in your church is a bully. Maybe the rest of the congregation needs to become aware there is an issue. Be strong and stay serene. Have a great day!

    The drive to learn is what keeps us mentally sharp, I think. Good for you to be doing something about that drive in yourself. As for the church job, you'll decide what's best for you. Nice to be asked, though. :)

    I'm glad that your friend is coming to visit. By May, Sherry should be back here and getting ready for the baby. We have the shower date of May 3. Sarah and I have done a little bit towards it, but not nearly enough! Gotta get busy. Think 10 times about the church position. They will work you to death and you have a lot on your plate now. You're finally at a point where you are doing things for you. A LOT of your time will not be your own.

    Glad your day was good. Avoid that job if possible...doesn't sound worth it.

Congrats on Canada doing so well in hockey! emoticon

    Well, dear friend, if you do take the clerk position, I hope you bring enough spunk to it that no one can possibly bring you down.

    That's sad to hear about the direspect of your friend. It's difficult to hear about let alone be around it. Hope it doesn't continue.
Glad the day was relaxing, etc otherwise.

Have a good week.

    that is too bad about the clerkship, I would have thought that would be perfect for you.
Your church must be quite different from ours as there is no disrespect tolerated to anyone, in outside or inside, by our church members.
Too bad...
