... and a day where the energy was less than I would have likes and yet here I am, just finished sorting some more stuff for the funerals before me. Three funeral visits today, a funeral at the Crem; an amazingly good communion in a care home, a rocking Christingle and a very productive building's meeting all crash in now to make me feel like it has been a good day.
That said I'm starting to feel the pace and am looking forward to a bit of a withdrawal from the daily grind for a bit this afternoon.
the opportunity to engage with so many different people in so many settings;
the feeling that you have made a difference (in a positive way) to the lives of the people you've met;
the ability to remain unfazed regardless of what is going on around you and by doing so know that you are making Jesus, the Christ, real.
Low points: the feeling that the spring in my spot os fading and I'm reaching my sell by date with regard to the pre-Christmas stuff. Glad I've decided to fly about the clouds next year because at the moment I'm stuck in the hedge at the end of the runway and can see little respite until the New Year has arrived.
Lord, thanks for today - it's been 'a day' but You were there and so suddenly, upon reflection, it has been yet another good one.
Bring me restorative sleep and the knowledge of you presence.
ps. Yes, the mould is the reason I wheeze - don't tell me what my problem is, become part of the solution :-)
