Friday...A Catch Up From the Week
Yesterday was our first day of Community Bible Study and I got to meet my group. So excited to get to know these ladies and to learn and study Genesis. It is rather embarrassing that a side effect of some of the medicine I'm taking is sweating. Sorry, a tad persperous. No full on sweat and just like clockwork, sweat appeared right in the middle of core group. Then I had to fan and explain which made some think menopause but no side effect of some pain meds. Ugh! It is worse than hot flashes.
One of the quotes from Tuesday leadership council was this; " operational excellence makes the ministry." It is all the behind the scenes work that makes the flow of ministry happen. After working six years at a church, I certainly appreciate this and know that it is true. Our coordinator for the Katy class is truly gifted and does her tasks well and with great humility.
I stayed up way too late last night because I couldn't put the book down I was reading, Moonrise by Cassandra King. This book held my attention from the first page. It was the book of choice for all things waiting rooms. The tension was building and the truth would finally be known and the big reveal, while interesting, was a little disappointing. It's kind of like how I felt the first time I watched the movie Suspicion. Big buildup and huge disappointment at the ending. Later found out that most people in the 40's would not have believed that Cary Grant could be that mean and evil....so they changed the ending. I reread the ending again this morning thinking maybe I had missed something. No. I would not hesitate to recommend this book, because it is really good. My disappointment probably stems from knowing the book has Rebecca type themes and personalities, so I thought the ending would be dramatic like the end of Rebecca. Moonrise has great characters and the relational aspects between them are very well written.
