yesterday transform into TODAY--

The Present-
Yesterday was such a whirlwind that today has taken on a "blahness".

Why does that happen?
I don't seen to have purpose today.

Yesterday was jam-packed, today is, generally for me, a day of rest, yet I am just kinda hangin' out.

Yesterday I oversaw a race with 140 participants. Managed over 25 people for the event and was, the director the man-in-charge.
The race was incredibly received and a huge hit. Kudos for all!
Then after napping for one measley hour I went to catch Elvis Costello at a intimate venue and rocked out just a mere 8' from him for a 2.5 hour show!
After the show I even saw Elvis getting in his car and we exchanged pleasantries.

Today....the lawn mower would not work.
I took my daughter's car to the repair shop
went through an excercise of taking off one of her tires and then having
the car fall off the jack w/o the tire worries...everything is okay.

It's just blah.
blah blah blah

Church was good
Planned out some long-term stuff for some hurting members. Things went nice.
I think the truth is....I am overwhelmed. I feel like I am in to deep.
I knew May would be packed and it is.....I will be glad when June is here.

So much to do before Friday this week and yet I feel like I am treading water.

Like I tell others-
It is what it is.
We will get done what we can.

Hopefully God will grant us the days and if He does....what will we do with them?

On leadership

when you break trail, you need to push branches & rocks out of the way....the branches tend to have thorns and it is a fight to get through and make a new trail. People will question you as to what you are doing and where you are going. Listen to them....consider their words and adjust if needed, but regardless continue on in the main direction you wanted to go....pull the thorns out and accept the loss of blood. Learn how to break the trail and learn to lead. stay focused on what you know to be right and be sure to have integrity. Be authentic in who and what you are. Not everyone will stay with you and that's ok. The right path is the narrow one."Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. Matthew 7:13
