One of those days...

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing seems to be going as it is suppose to? I am having one of those today. I guess that God wants to see how flexible I really am. Today must be a test.

I found out about 9:00 last night that I had to teach the 3 and 4 year old Sunday school class. Okay, I can handle it. We had two new students in there today. They did not know how to behave. I take that back. They have not been taught how to behave. They were more than a handful. I felt like I was in a battle the entire class time. I was working on a lesson that had to be quickly thrown together, so I already was a little off and feeling unprepared.

Then I found out that I had to do the special music for the morning service. Okay, I can do it. I grab a few books and find a song in between Sunday school and the start of the service. Next during hand shaking time I find out that I am needed to help in the nursery. Okay, I can do it right after I sing. I will miss the preaching, but I'll be there.

Then while in the nursery I am needed outside with the kids to take pictures. We had a special day for them with the local firemen and firetrucks. Okay, I can do it. Every time I tried to push the button for my pics to take the camera shut down on me. No problem I'll get the pics with my cell phone. No, my cell phone buttons are frozen. Only the power button works. I guess I need a new phone. I used someone else's phone. They are going to try to email them to me.

Then I see that the lady that is singing tonight is also in the nursery tonight. Alright, no problem, I will hold her spot in the nursery until she can get there. No, tonight is the only night she can come to the revival. She wants me to do her nursery time for her. Okay, but again I am going to miss the preaching.

I get home after church. My lasagna noodles didn't cook all the way. Lunch is just not as good as it should be, but it is food. We ate a little. It is cooking some more. Hopefully we can have it tonight after church.

Don't worry. I am not having a bad day even though nothing is going as I expected it to. I am having a hilarious day. I am laughing and thinking what else is going to change at the last minute. I hope that it is that someone else will take the nursery tonight, so I can sit in the service.

Well, I guess it can only get better!?
As our Pastor would say, "Welcome to the ministry!"

At least you're able to smile in the midst of being all things to all people. :)
