I’m antsy right now. For several reasons, one being I’m not going to church this weekend. Yeah, I know, that’s a little crazy. This is the second weekend I’ve taken off since I started over a year ago 🙂 That in its self is a little crazy. I’ve taken other time off though and plenty of it, but not any Sunday’s other than one. The church staff is making me take the weekend off. 🙂
I like that. This weekend Brett Blondel is leading and he’s got a great heart and a great talent. We are blessed to have him be a part of our church family. That said my heart is still nervous that things won’t get set up or put together. I know I have the people in place to take care of things and I have a peace about them being there, but I just feel awkward not being there. That means I need to take a weekend off 🙂 It’s silly that I’m having a hard time letting go for just one weekend, but I am. I love being a part of First Pres’s “Vine” gathering. I like the coffee I drink each week. I love my time with the band in the green room prior to the service each week. I love the band who help lead each week. I love singing with my wife. I love seeing the depth of people who are there each week. That part I really love. The people who come. I love getting there before anyone else between 6:30 -7am. Everything is dark, I go to the booth and warm up the lights, turn on the CD player, turn on the computer, and when Sutton & Kevin show up around 7:15 I go down to set up the band stage. Then around 8 everyone else begins to show up to set up the rest of the room. I’m going to miss that this Sunday. 🙂 I might go somewhere else to worship this sunday. That’s what I need to do. Ok, I feel better now that I’ve written that out. I’m going to bed now:) Good night and I’ll see you next week!
