The field is still mostly dark at 7:58 am on this first Tuesday morning in November, and the day promises to be long what with guys prayer meeting already behind me, then I'm doing a service at the city hospital, and ending up the day with a General Board meeting.
It's still a good morning and I suspect I'm still in the afterglow of our holiday in England. Was it only two weeks ago that we were riding a ferry across Lake Windermere and had lunch in a 600 year old establishment? We walked up to Hilltop to see where Beatrix Potter ruled her world and cut short development of the area buy purchasing up old farms and keeping them working. We drove through the hills and dales of the lake district and discovered Lakeland Stores with their upscale quirky offerings. Then I believe it was supper at Pizza Express in Kendal.
Yes we worked hard to cement some memories into the permanent memory spaces we have in our hearts.
But today, what about today here in the field.
I should go get ready for the service this morning here at the hospital. It's my first time here and I'm not sure what's expected of me.
And you, on this cool November morning, you have a good day too alright?
