Spoke Too Soon

I arrived at the church today and announced, "I'm back!"  I had come up with some ideas for fall worship this morning, and was feeling great.  I sat down and began writing newsletter articles and working on liturgy for worship. 

Four hours later I had to admit that I wasn't back completely.  My neck and shoulders were hurting.  I shut down the computer, done for the day.  This evening I have my regular overnight retreat with my colleagues.  It will be our last one until fall.  Sister Best Friend is picking me up for it.  I'm thinking Thursday I will begin driving again. 

It did feel good to get back into the routine, but I didn't like being forced to face my  limitations.  I'm glad I'm not going to be preaching this Sunday....
