Today was Resurrection Sunday. We probably slept ten minutes later than we should have, but I still got my devotional of 513 words written before I left for church. That makes the afternoon go a little bit smoother. One of the problems of doing a Bible reading plan that takes you through the Bible in a year is that Bible passages don’t always match up with what’s happening on the church calendar. We had to be at church early today because I was working the screens and Lucy, my wife, was taking part in a reading of the Apostle’s Creed and they wanted to rehearse the reading. We didn’t get there til about 8:00, but I had done some of the screen work on Wednesday night, so there was a lot less to do, although it would have been nice if I’da checked the wording on one specific song. Just sayin’.
We got home from church, ate, and it was practically time to go do my Nursing Home Bible study. A couple of weeks ago I discovered that one of the men who shows up at the Bible Study is the father of one of my former co-workers. After that, I was able to relax, catch up on a few things I wanted to do. After supper I finally began editing and made my regular progress with editing of 6 days worth of devotionals. After that, I got a little cleaning done. Now, I’m ready for bed. Tomorrow will be a long day!
Today’s devotional: April 1 – Jesus Taught It, Did It, and Expects Me to Do It
I need routine. This is the second day in a row that I’ve posted this update a day after things happened. My routine was disrupted by my wife coming home from a conference and I didn’t write last night. This morning was rough too because of routine breakers. I added a new chess teaching time today (yesterday of course) with a young man whose parents are friends. He was so far ahead of some kids and this was his first lesson. I asked him why he did something the way he did, which was the right way, and he told me that he figured it out on his own. I was blown away!
Anyway, the devotional of 456 words: March 27 – How Jesus Saw His Ministry
I also edited 6 more days on my devotional book. I’m no up to May 12.
