Even though this should be a short week, due to Labor Day, it has only just begun to be long.
I was at the church at 7:00 this morning to work on the church newsletter, which I had forgot I wouldn’t have time to print on Monday since I would be relaxing at home.
And then the printer didn’t work. So, the group that arrived at 8:30 to fold and mail them had nothing to do =( But they are so gracious and kind and suffer through my failings gently =)
It’s also going to be a long week because we have had two deaths in our congregation over the weekend. I have a visitation tonight and funeral tomorrow and I am also meeting with another family this afternoon for a funeral at the end of this week.
Add to that a United Methodist Women’s meeting, and Administrative Board, and you’ve got a doozy of a week.
Prayers for strength and endurance are needed! I’m hoping I don’t die of compassion fatigue!
By the way… all of our charge conference forms came in – and there are piles and piles of paperwork to be done… why didn’t anyone tell me how busy September would be?
