Super stoked

I spent the last couple of days at clergy convocation and had a marvelous time. After letting go of resentment last week, I have been feeling great. I see that right now there is no major chaos at my church, my personal life is on the up and up, I've had a recent vacation, I have a plan for the next few months of ministry and am working on extending the plan---life is good! I am so amazed at how wonderfully blessed I feel and how well things are going. On the way home tonight I was reveling in the joy of the present and thought, "maybe this is the calm before the storm", which was promptly followed by, "well, if it is, then I am going to enjoy this before I have to struggle through another storm."

This morning as I caught up with a mentor/friend/pastor he asked how my ministry is and I responded with an unconscious shrug of my shoulders, "really well." His response: "you don't have to be apologetic about it. I know sometimes around here it seems like you do, but really, you should be proud of it and enjoy it!" Amen. It is a really good thing that my ministry is going so well. It is great I have volunteers, it is great we have new ministries underway, it is great we have visitors to youth and to the Latino ministry is all so great! And for that I am thankful!
