Wow. If I'm out of the house on Saturday evening, it sure makes it hard to kick it in gear on Sunday morning. I try my best to have everything ready to go so that we're not running around like crazy people trying to get out the door. So, if I'm gone the evening before, I find myself staying up into the illegal hours.
Today I taught children's church for the last time. I'd snuck into the office earlier in the week and had scratched my name off the rotation list. (I'm in charge of organizing it, so there was no one to tell, I just needed my name to stay out of the bulletin.) It's funny, but I'd felt guilty after bowing out earlier this week, but the guilt was gone when I was done. Phew!!! That age group just isn't my gifting, LOL, especially when we had as many as we had today.
Oh... and to score two in one day, I spoke with the nursery coordinator--I'm now off that rotation list as well, YAY!
Now I'm free to play the keyboard in worship every Sunday, which better matches the gifts God gave me in the first place. Someone donated a very nice, full-size keyboard to the church because our instrumentalists are too far apart and they needed a "bridge" up on stage, so to speak. So, I'm a bridge now, lol.
I still think I have a few too many plates spinning, so I'm going to delegate a couple more little things, in hopes I can feel more settled. They're really small things, they just use up valuable brain space. It's the small things that add up, though, isn't it? I found myself agreeing to them, against my better judgment; because after all, they were just a couple of little things.
Anyway, all that to say, it's a tired Sunday; but I feel good because I know I'll be less tired from now on.
