Tuesdays Are The New Monday

At least they are in what passes for my week. Tuesday is my first day of classes for the week at seminary. As I mentioned yesterday, Mondays are different for the better.

Tuesdays are as well. Does it feel funny starting my "work week" a day later than most? No, it feels good. Let others have the head start of Monday, I ease into my schedule. No sense rushing somewhere until I know where it is I need to go.

Once I am into the week, I am busy. Actually I am busy on Mondays as well. But I am not rushed anymore. In addition, I am not feeling the pressure of seminary I was feeling just a few weeks ago, God seems to have calmed my heart on that one, and I pray that feeling (or lack of feeling) continues. My days are full, there are days I feel I wish the day had more time to get done what I would like to get done. Not a longer day, but one with more time in it, if that makes any sense to you. It does to me somehow.

So shortly I will head off to classes for the day and then to a church small group meeting tonight with my wife. Along the way, I will try to spend as much time walking and talking with Jesus that I can. He is so gracious that I know He will sit in with me on my lectures today, even though He has heard them many, many times. A lot of it is from His lectures, so maybe He will give me a little more insight into what I have to learn today.

As for the picture above, it has nothing to do with what I have written so far. I liked it, it fits me somehow. It says a lot to me about how times have changed. I was scary in the 80's. Still am, but I mostly scare myself now, no one else.

I have been writing about my new week, the previous day of which
you can read right here."
