Sometime things just don’t go how you have planned them. Tonight I was certain that I had everything ready, but after the first song my PowerPoint guy looks up at me and just shrugs. The rest of the songs were non-existent, and one of them we couldn’t even find anywhere on the computer. I don’t know what happened, but it was a terrible situation. Oh well, I guess that is life when you are an average youth minister.
Winter Retreat planning is starting to kick into high gear. I am feeling very pressured right now not because I think I can’t get everything finished, but because I think I am right on schedule and that scares me. I am sure that I am forgetting something, but for the life of me I can remember it right now. I guess I will remember it while we are there and I will get about 2 hours of sleep the whole weekend again because of it, but there is nothing I can do about that now.
