I always enjoy those moments where you have tangibly accomplished something important.  Those moments for me were always the most obvious when I was in school, like finishing your last final exam of a semester, or graduating.  One of the hard things for me about ministry is that those moments seem to be much more rare.  I always have a bit of that feeling after the sunday worship service, but I also know how fleeting that is, because Sunday comes every week!

Well, I just had that feeling of “Ah, it is nice to be finished. ”  I just mailed my final year of commissioning papers off!  That means, God willing, that I have completed all of my written work towards ordination.  It is a good feeling.  Thank you, Lord.
