I really enjoyed the hike yesterday. It would have been perfect if I hadn't fallen and, of course, landed on my bad knee. It looked pretty ugly last night. I have avoided looking at it today. The best part was seeing a herd of deer. We arrived before anyone else so the mountain was quiet and the weather was perfect.
The sermon seemed to go well except for the last few minutes of the 2nd service. I think that my knee was hurting so bad that I started trembling. I don't think anyone noticed but it was a bit unnerving to me.
Tomorrow I am being interviewed by the dCOM for probationary membership at 10:15 a.m., so prayers would be appreciated. Considering it has only been a couple of months since my last interview, I hope that everything goes well.
It has been ten years since I started my college education. I started out at the local community college, part-time, just to see if I could handle it. Went straight from my under-graduate into seminary, and straight from seminary into my doctoral program. I tell you all this because I am having problems getting motivated about doing my reading assignments. So feel free to check on me and keep me honest.
