i’m writing this mostly to remind myself that i have a job to do today: pick up joey and chelsea at the airport. it’s not at all that their forgettable. as i age it doesn’t take much for some real important things to slip by me. forgetting to not pack more than a thimble full of fluids before i go through airport security is one thing; forgetting to let the dog out of the back of the car…for two weeks…is another. i really loved that dog.
but i don’t think i’ll have any trouble remembering joey and chelsea today. they are part of my heart and we really can’t do without them around here. at the first of the year we hired them to do what they were already doing which was ministering to the younger gang in our congregation. since january they’ve built a dynamic, growing ministry that i’m really proud of and will hopefully contribute to keeping me a little younger. so, note to self, pick up joey and chelsea today. and don’t leave them in the car.
