Balance…

As opposed to last week, I worked with a new guy all week and went home early three of the five days of the week, getting extra time in the afternoon with Lucas and Andi. I also had extra help from one of the employee’s kids, but they were working for free. They got a special lunch out with their parents after two days working with me. Thanks to the Whitlock crew for your help.

This week I have been thinking about how I need to prepare more for our upcoming mission work. I went to Bible college, sure, and I got a 4-year degree, but what am I missing that will help me apply what I have in my head? I need hands-on experience in order to flesh out the lessons learned, but until then are there things I need to do? I think there are, and I need to begin working on those things, Just working a “regular job” and trying to be a witness to my co-workers and customers is good, but I found that I could be forgetting what is to come just because I don’t spend enough time thinking and working on mission stuff.

So I am trying to learn how to keep the big picture in perspective, all the while living the day-to-day grind of a “normal job”. Balance is interesting, and learning it takes time and work…
