As a veteran of youth ministry I have learned a few things about myself. One of the things that I have learned is how much I can get done before a 7:00pm youth meeting. Normally it really isn’t that much because I want to be sure to have time to focus.
One of the things I haven’t learned is how to make sure that the only work left to be done can be done before the 7:00 meeting. What normally happens when I have something special going on is that I keep coming up with cool ideas all week long and so I keep adding to my to do list until it is 12:40 on Thursday night and I still have miles to go before I sleep.
So if I have stuff to do why them am I stopping to write here you might ask? That is a pretty good question. I don’t really have a good answer. Maybe I just wanted you to commiserate with me.
Anyway, our 36 Hour Famine kicks off tomorrow night so I will probably get back to this site on Monday. Pray for us. Especially pray that I don’t get hungry and cranky and hurt a kid.
