Our local Association meeting will be at our church on October 2nd. I am the clerk/treasurer for our local association which means I take care of the money and have the minute books printed and mailed out. I plan to have the local minutes printed out and ready to go before the State Association meeting in November. That is an ambitious goal but one I think I can achieve.
I have often thought about taking some irons out of the fire. I sometimes think that at 57 I should start winding down a bit. I could give up both clerk jobs and the camp registrar's job and the tech support for sullivansupply.com and that would give me more time for other things. I have even considered not pushing for the doctor's degree and just write my book on the Song of Songs without the pressure of a deadline. A friend just asked me to consider taking on another task/responsiblity and I am praying about that. My health is good and I seem to have plenty of energy. There are somethings that I would like to spend more time doing like, visitation, woodworking, hiking, learning French, learning Biblical Hebrew, and gardening. The thing is this.... I am going to always have Irons in the fire. I know myself well enough that for every one I take out I will but another in. It boils down then to what Irons do I want in my fire. I think, Lord willing, I will just keep the ones I have in there for now.
God bless you.
