Refreshed But Not Rested

Sundays are often very busy days for us.  Today was no exception.  In fact, it was probably fairly representative.  Here's how it went....

7:55 -- Stop at Ministry Center and turn on the coffeepot so it will be ready to make coffee later.
Early Service (Traditional):  Sing in the choir.  Be there at about 8:00.
Leave Early Service at halftime:  Go over to Ministry Center and make coffee and get refreshments ready for Sunday School.
9:45 -- Sunday School starts.  Some Sundays I do the music for "The Celebration" which is an alternative Sunday School/Church Service/Small Group function for those who prefer something other than the traditional services.
10:30 -- leave Sunday School because we have to warm up for our Adult Ensemble, B.A.S.I.C. (Brothers and Sisters in Christ), which is singing in the 11:00 service. 
11:00 -- Contemporary service -- we usually attend this one.
12:30 -- Lunch
3:00 -- Personnel Committee Meeting -- seems like this happens all too frequently -- lasted 2 hours
5:00 -- B.A.S.I.C. rehearsal
6:00 -- Church
7:30 -- Dinner celebrating the completion of our Truth Project small group (see note below)
9:30 -- home

The Truth Project has been great.  It is produced by Focus on the Family and is a DVD series that focuses on the question: "How do you know that what you know is really real?"  It seeks to dive into the thinking behind many of the current popularly held beliefs that permeate our culture and how those beliefs compare to what the Bible says.  I highly recommend it.  Follow the link.

So, am I rested?  I must admit that I missed my nap.  My "day-of-rest" was full, but I do feel refreshed and ready for the week.

Life is good.
