It's not even 8:30 and everything I wanted to get done today was finished. Yeah! Well, almost everything.
Today was a huge variety: It started early with the Augsburg Confession Study with the Men (6:15 over breakfast - Article IV and some fascinating discussion); then Matins, BOC Reading and a tad of Blogging; Chapel at Daycare where I spoke about the Baptism of Jesus and taught the little tots to sing in Greek: Kyrie Eleison! (LSB 944); Last minute stuff for bulletin - thanks be to God for Joanie!; Shutin communions and visits (Wilma, Ella, Fred, Alfred and Frieda); Vepers; Divine Service; Sermon and Bible Class preparation for this coming Sunday; Preparation of Bulletins for next week - next week's Catechism service is hot off the press and waiting for Joanie to work on.
So tomorrow, as of this moment, is wide open - Deo gratias! - and my beloved bride and myself will escape for a bit and eat out. And I'll just BET you, we'll end up going to Walmart shopping. Sigh. It seems that never a Friday goes by that we don't end up in that store. Hopefully tomorrow will wind up with a game of liverpool - and this time it's MY turn to win!!!
Saturday will require a bit of work on both piano (in prep for pastoral conference) and on the puter (also in prep for the pastoral conference). Looking forward to the conference if for nothing else than getting away for a few days and praying the daily offices and visiting with friends.
