Yesterday morning I completed the first draft of my wedding sermon for Saturday, so this afternoon, I'll just need to read it over and make a few tweaks (it felt a tad heavy yesterday).
After another ludicrously long day in another crazy week, I allowed myself a bit of a lie in again this morning, despite young Sasha cat walking up and mewing in my ear every few minutes! This meant I got a nice clear three hour run to do some tidying up of the vestry, update my diary and calendar and even do do a tiny bit of longer term planning!
A little bit of breathing space. Some time to be rather than do. Not especially holy and not especially mindful, though bits of each have arisen.
It's been a long run through since my last break in terms of weeks elapsed, and a demanding run in terms of what's been entailed. So the thought of an early finish this afternoon (albeit partly to iron a vicar shirt for Saturday!) is very appealing.
I actually feel quite enthused and excited by what is in the diary for the next few months... busy for sure, challenging for certain but after a brief breather, I think I'll be ready to go once more.
