Coffee shop ponderings — startled

Have you ever gotten yourself so focused on something that you didn’t hear someone approaching you…and when you finally noticed them or heard them you nearly jumped out of your shoes?  Well…that kind of happened to me today…not literally though.

I was in the sanctuary this morning working on my sermon as I do every Thursday morning before I leave for Coffee Choices.  When I returned to my office my secretary said, “Pastor, did you forget something?”  I immediately started searching my brain trying to figure out what she was talking about.  I got everything in for the bulletin and did all my usual Thursday stuff.  And then she said, “M called wondering where you are this morning“.  Then it hit me…it’s September…and it’s my month to lead Bible study at the apartment high rise and the assisted living facility.  And here’s the sad thing…I wrote about the fact (on this blog on Tuesday) that September is here and wondered where the summer went…and September still snuck up on me and “startled” me.  I called M and apologized and she understood.  I just hope my little old ladies forgive me.

September really is here.  I just hope I don’t forget anything else.

  1. Hey, these things happen sometimes. I hope things have been going well for you otherwise. And Congrats on the decision to move to WordPress. I don’t think you’ll regret it!

  2. Hey Art…good to “see” you again. It has been way too long.

    So far I am really enjoying the change to WordPress. I feel it is so much easier to use with more options and it’s free. I am getting the best of all worlds.

  3. Eric,
    Even harder than it just being September is realizing that it wasn’t Monday when I went back to the office; it was Tuesday. I was 5 minutes late for the service at the care center. So much for the first day of Kindergarten
