When I was young, I wanted to be author. When I was serving in my first church, I was still dreaming of writing a book. I read once that a minister writes the equivalent of a book every year between sermons and various other things we write. I was thinking about that today as I was writing newsletter articles. I used to lament having to write a 5 page double spaced paper in college. Today I wrote over 5 pages of single spaced articles for the newsletter. I finished those, and went back to working on the sermon for Sunday.
It's not quite the way I envisioned being a writer, but I definitely do a great deal of writing. I'm exceedingly grateful that I'm no longer writing on the manual computer I used in college. Yes, I'm that old.
Daughter comes home tomorrow, and will be with me through Sunday. She's quite excited about it. I'm pleased, because I will know she is safe while she is with me. Last night she had a cold supper. They can't seem to figure out how to get her her meds and serve her a hot meal. It's beyond their capacity to plan. She said she took it into the kitchen and stuck it in the microwave. I do believe she's smarter than some of the staff.
