April 5 – Stayin’ Alive

Getting through today was an accomplishment. Some days the devotional thoughts seem to type themselves. Today was a struggle. I finally thought of something my wife said and had an idea to begin working with. A few Sundays ago, my wife had to miss church to travel to a conference. I wished her safe travels. She came back and wished me dangerous worship. I loved that idea. That thought came to mind as I was reading the Bible passage for about the fifth time seeking inspiration. Then, I had to hurry so I could get to my tutoring assignment on time. I started off running about 5 minutes late and ended up running about 15 minutes late. Came home for a touch of lunch about 3:00 (Tutoring runs across comfortable lunch hour.) Then, I sat down to plan meals for the rest of the week. I couldn’t think of anything. I stared at the computer. I finally gave up and played more Splatoon (see last night’s post). The title of this post is from a joke that my daughter and I share when she’s playing one of the scenarios. After a certain time, the most important part is staying alive. When she gets to that point, I tell her she needs to Bee Gee it. (If you’re a bit young, they have a song entitled “Stayin’ Alive.”) After dinner, which we ate out, we came home and I did my editing and then started writing this. I’m going back to editing my March and April Devotional book which got skipped due to technical difficulties around the time I needed to get it done.

March 25 – Palm Sunday – A Full Day

I got to church at 7:45 AM to set up the program for the screens. I worked our 8:30 and 11:00 worship service and attended Sunday School at 9:45. After the 1100 worship service, my daughter demanded grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch, so I had to stop at the store and buy something. By the time I’d finished making lunch, it was almost 1:00. I finally finished my devotionals and had a few minutes before leaving for the nursing home where I do a Bible Study at 2:00. Got home for a little rest before leaving for church for an evening fellowship. I didn’t stay the whole time, so I got home at 7:00…worn out. I took the day off from writing, except for the devotional.

Oh, and my wife left for a conference today, so no amazing wife around here for the next couple of days. I miss her already.
