all sorts of busy stuff

Let's go through a run through of a typical week, shall we?

Sunday - Work from 8-8 This varies but is usually just about that time frame. I enjoy it, but it certainly takes a lot out of me. Last night I started up a new young adult group. There were 4 of us there, but we have more prospects. I think this is awesome, but it totally extends my Sunday nights almost beyond what I want. It was a night that worked for people though so we will see where it goes.

Monday- Roll into work at about 9:30. Start working on stuff for the next Sunday, deal with anything bad that happened Sunday night. Bring volunteers up to speed with where we're going. I have the tendency to work through lunch on Mondays. This is probably not a good thing. I stay til at least 5 and head over to Bible Study sometime after that. Bible study is at 6, and we usually run til about 9.

Tuesdays- Get in to work, do a bit before staff meeting. Staff meeting and usually lunch with staff. Tuesday afternoons I really start to put legs on whatever program we're doing on Sundays. Tuesday nights are relatively calm usually, with a meeting once a month, but not much else.

Wednesday- Morning Bible Study and lunch with the women of the word Bible study. I am blessed to be the youngest in the group, and have gained much wisdom from those who have walked before me. Seriously, I love this group. Wednesday I keep chugging on youth stuff and try to get done for Sunday but it doesn't always happen. Wed night starting next week- Bible study at 5:30-7 and then book study at 7. This is nuts. Really.

Thursday- I try to get ahead. It doesn't always work. But really, this is the day I set aside for spending time coming up with ideas, doing a little reading, or figuring out the craziness that is my office.

Fridays- My one day off that I try to hold REALLY sacred. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Saturdays - Counterculture stuff from 3:30- whenever I get home late at night. I usually have some last minute stuff to get done for Sunday. But I try really hard not to. As far as a Sabbath goes, I try to make Saturday it. Worshipping, praising, taking care of my soul.

Of course none of this counts any of the random crazy meetings that spring up. Or when my kids need someone to talk to at 8 pm. Or when I have special events. Or hanging out with youth at sports games etc. Or when I feel like maybe I need to hang out with friends.

I'm maybe in too many studies, but right now I don't feel too overwhelmed with them. I think I'm gaining insight in all of them. In some of them I sit there learning, and in others I am the one that is teaching others the things I've already worked through. I'm glad I'm still learning though, we'll see how the fall goes with all this stuff I'm starting up. I of course have a whole different list of things I would like to start with the youth and young adults here. And it is killing me that I don't feel like I'm doing a heck of a lot of service in the community right now, but perhaps after leaving my last job, I might need a little break from it.
