DairyKing's Journal, 13 July 2016

Good Evening, FS Warriors! Yes, I am still alive - and even well. I have been a bit overwhelmed with the assignments for this course I have been taking, but only a couple more days to go. This was one of those "have to" courses that are required to be licensed by the District, and earn the right to be called "Reverend." Who'da thunk it? If it happens, it will be sometime in the Spring of next year. Being ordained is a different story; that takes about 3 years minimum. The courses are probably the most demanding of the process, but they do not guarantee that the Denomination will license you or ordain you. There are other factors that go into the process of confirming their ministers. The Nazarene Church takes this stuff pretty seriously.

You would think that all that anxiety would sweat the pounds off. Not so far. I've actually put a few back on. Not as big as when I started, but a long way from where I got to before.

Haven't had time to work on much other than regular maintenance around the home. Yards have needed mowing. The garden is producing. I have been picking kale, Swiss chard, green peppers and tomatoes for over a week now. It will still be a while before I can harvest the green beans.

Starting next week, I will have at least 7 weeks off before I begin my next course. I hope to get a lot more projects done. I also hope to get in some fishing. All work and no play make for a pretty boring life. I did escalate the Nursing Home Ministry to include Assisted Living. I am going to have to do some solo performances because my team finds more than once a month too overwhelming, and I find getting around to the same place only once every six months unsatisfactory. So, who know how all of this will play out. I say "performing" because my ministry never was just to go and preach to these shut-ins. My vision has always been to just lift their spirits and give them hope for a life beyond the one they are living.

Well, enough rambling for now. You never know when I'll drop in. Miss you all. Just haven't had time for much socializing. Toodles!
