Well, I guess this COVID thing is going to hang on a little longer. Kind of like a bad cold. I tell people that I don’t get colds, but now I have the granddaddy of all colds. I sound like Sam Elliott, sneeze often, cough a lot, blow my nose every couple of minutes, have a headache, muscle aches, and enjoy a nap every couple of hours.
But my energy level is good and my attitude is positive. I plan on riding my stationary bike for an hour today, lifting weights for an hour, and working on the mustang for a couple of hours. I am also going to get a bunch of “Pastor work” done. I am going to write birthday and anniversary notes, grade leadership class papers, write my sermon for next Wednesday’s service, go through my prayer journal as I pray for people in our church, write the church family letter, and fill out and send out my “pastor accountability” report to the pastors that I am in a group with. If I get all those checked off of my “to do” list, I will feel pretty good
My old motto, “don’t act the way you feel,” works good when you are sick as well. So, even though I am sick with the COVID I can act like I am having the time of my life. The way we act, the level of positiveness, the attitude we choose to have, all has an impact on what happens in our life. I for sure don’t want to act and talk like a victim. I thank God all day long for all my blessings that I have received from Him.
