Today has not been a good day for memory issues. I was headed to the church when I realized I didn't have the church keys. I turned around and came back to get them. As I was getting out of the car, I heard a jingle and discovered I'd hung the keys around my neck. Daughter thought that was hilarious.
When we got to the church, I discovered that I had neglected to save the final edits to the PowerPoint for the sermon. My computer failed to resume and most of the slides were lost. I had other things to do before worship, so I didn't try to recreate the whole thing.
After worship, Daughter went to my study ahead of me. When I got there, I discovered she had placed my sermon notebook in my briefcase. I took it out and put it on the shelf where it belongs and put the computer in. She came in and informed me I needed the notebook. I told her I didn't. She reminded me that I had to lead worship at the retirement home this afternoon.
After lunch I took Daughter back to her home. When I got to the retirement home, I was almost in before I remembered I needed my notebook, which was still in the car.... A couple of friends emailed me this video this week. Somehow it seems especially appropriate today. In keeping with the theme of aging, I have not been able to embed or upload the video, even though I've tried several times and in several different ways. I guess you'll just have to click on the link, and hopefully it will work.
