Needing some wings!

"But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint." (Isaiah 40: 31, NKJV)

It's amazing how something seemingly innocuous such as having a laptop swiped can turn one's life inside-out. In my case, losing two assignments has thrown me into a complete tailspin as I attempt to reconstruct a couple of month's work.

Not to mention that life itself goes on, as it has a habit of doing. Take this week just past, for instance. The previous Friday my machine went walkabout, forcing me to cancel the HIV / AIDS workshop to be held on the Saturday. Sunday was the normal round of services at which I was preaching at. Monday was spent on the 'phone grovelling to TEEC for an extension to submit the outstanding assignments. Tuesday and Wednesday was college as normal, while Thursday and Friday was the normal circuit routine, sermon preparation, and so on. Last week was the ministers' retreat, followed by a day in the office, the (now reconvened) HIV / AIDS workshop, baptism preparation classes, and the service this morning. In between all of this, every spare moment has been spent frantically trying to get the TEEC work done. On Wednesday I am writing an examination, and the two assignments are due on Saturday.

In short, I am STUFFED! "Tired" doesn't even BEGIN to describe my current state. But there IS light at the end of the tunnel - if I can get through to the end of next weekend in one piece, I might just survive...
