May 8 – Someday I’ll Get Caught Up!

I have a project I’m working on: my devotional books. Then comes a short story anthology and I say, “I can work on that.” After that, another writing challenge jumps up and drags me in. All with very quick deadlines now. Someday I’ll stop taking on these challenges so that I can finish the work I really want to do. “But it’s just a short story…” will go out the window. After I finish these stories. Because deadlines. I did get my devotional written on time today and got a lot written before I left for my chess lesson. Then, editing didn’t happen because we began the process of replacing washer and dryer. Found out flooring will need major work. Fun. But that will get done too. And I will meet deadlines. And, I will write my class assignments. A new one came on Monday, and I’m thinking hard about it!

Today’s devotional (440 words) – May 8 – I Will Be With You Always

April 3 – What a Day!

It was a long year today. Think about it…anyway, that’s the best way to describe today. I got up and worked on my devotional after breakfast. It was 458 words. I took a little liberty with the words of Jesus to the Pharisees. After that I posted the same blog on all three of my blogs about helping finance our Rwanda trip. Then, I had to get some laundry done. My daughter asked if I was going to do towels, and when I said yes, she asked if I’d do some for her. No problem. It took me an hour longer to finish because I folded up all her washcloths. I came home, and before I put the laundry away, I had to go get groceries. When I got back, I had to get ready to leave immediately for a chess lesson. I finished the lesson and came home for a bit, then headed to my wife’s college for an international dinner made by the culinary arts department. (It was delicious.) I finally got home and started working on editing around 9:00. I got 6 days worth of devotionals edited and I should finish this book tomorrow. So, today’s recap:

Devotional – 458 Words: April 3 – You Can’t Make Everybody Happy

Editing – 6 days worth

Reading – God Dreams – finished chapter 1 on Getting a vision for the work God calls you to. (more to it than that, just a quick and diry summary.)
