Sun, 8 Mar 2015 13:42:43 EST Saturday <em>211</em> Sat, 7 Mar 2015 09:24:32 EST Follow-Up Last night's meeting went ok. However, it is still somewhat frustrating that some of our folks don't truly understand some of the dynamics of life in ministry. while it wasn't all bad, it was somewhat of a downer and not very helpful in the overall scheme of things. <BR> <BR> Fri, 6 Mar 2015 16:30:12 EST Struggling with attitude Praying for my attitude as i meet with our personnel committee tonight. it seems there's some concern that our new youth minister and i both take Friday's off. This along with a busy summer and little time for vacation is causing some on the committee to worry that we won't have a staff member available should something arise during one week in the summer. this is the first time in 5 years that this church has had more than one ministry staff member. the adjustment curve has been rather steep... Thu, 5 Mar 2015 12:10:40 EST Wednesday getting ready for another Wednesday night. hope your day is going well, Wed, 4 Mar 2015 16:32:04 EST Another Meeting...

Sun, 1 Mar 2015 16:13:00 EST Snowy Saturday The weekend seems to be going well. Now the snow has hit mid-Mo.

Last night i spent most of the evening dealing with some stomach issues. Perhaps, i ate to much too quickly. Trying to slow down so that i can get over this junk. <BR> <BR> Blessings.
