I was taking a look at my schedule for next week this morning when I felt it happen. I know you know the feeling. Overwhelmed, but nothing you can do about it. I’ve got a commitment every single night of the week next week. Not to mention that three of my mornings at this point will start will begin before 6 am. Long days. Long week. And who will get the short end of the stick? Not those that I meet with. I’ll pull it together and do my best. It will be Connie and Annie that will get the leftovers. Not because I don’t care or am uninterested, but simply because there will not be anything left in the tank. I’m no prophet and don’t have a crystal ball, but I’ve had weeks like the one coming before.
Connie and Annie will not get the leftovers next week because I got an email from a friend this morning and it caused me to go back over my schedule. I’m going to reorganize some things. I’m going to plan some “meetings” of my own. Not with church members or heads of Foundations or…but with my wife and daughter. The email came in the form of a video in my “inbox” and I am so grateful. The video came from my friend, Joe White, and boy did it hit home. If you would like to watch it then just “click” Joe’s name and it will take you there immediately.
This time of year is so busy. I’m not telling you anything. You are as busy as I am and it’s not going to get any better until after Christmas. Unless. Unless we say, “Enough!” Unless we make some plans of our own. Unless we say, “Thanks, but no thanks” to some great opportunities, but not the best choices for us at this time. I hope you will watch the video and then find a quiet place where you can review your schedule and plan some meetings of your own with those you love.
