If I Only Had a Brain

This has been an interesting week. I’ve battled fatigue and a head cold. I’m teaching a class this weekend at our church. I’m responsible for three units. It’s been a challenge to concentrate on my lesson plan, hence the title for this post. Tonight I was responsible for the opening lesson. I had to stop at points to cough. I could feel the love of the folks listening to me. I’m so grateful for the support of my hubby and the other teachers. I could tell they were praying. I’ve realized that the more I teach, the more I’m comfortable with it. Isn’t that with everything? Practice does make perfect or at least close to it.

Tomorrow night we will take a break from the class to participate in the city wide prayer service that I spoke about in this post. Last week over six hundred people attended. This week more is expected and we had to change the venue in order to accommodate the increase.

The class is over on Saturday evening around 10:00. When we get home I’ll have to pack for our trip to Dallas. We have an early flight and will be at a pastor’s conference all week. Tom and I have both been sick and I’m praying that we are better by the time we get on the plane.

This week will be busy and if time allows, I will blog from the road to let you all know what is happening. I hope to have time to visit some of you on the road when there are breaks. Until then have a good week.

I love the title you used for this post! I've been sick and so I know exactly how you feel.

I'm still having computer issues, but I was able to get in and comment! :)

It's great that so many people attend the city wide prayer service. That's tonight, isn't it? Good luck w/ that!!

I hope you both feel better and have a wonderful weekend and safe travels. Have you ever tried liquid echinacia? (the alchohol-free?) I put a couple droppers in a hot cup of tea and it seems to help with a cold. Best if you can catch the cold when it starts, though. Take care, dear one!

Ugh! I hate being sick - especially when I have things to do and places to go! I'll pray that you recover quickly and despite your coughing God's message is heard loud and clear.

I do hope you feel better for your conference - and glad you made it through this week! I hope you don't catch anything else on the plane!

I could have had the same title for my latest post.

Practice may not make PERFECT (this side of heaven, anyway) but it sure does help!

Praying for your safety and health - have a good trip!

First visit to your blog and I really liked what you had to say. I hope you feel better soon - it's hard to be sick and twice as hard to be so when traveling.
Be blessed - Jennifer

Enjoy teaching!

I can totally relate Nadine! I too have been feeling so run down. Should really be in bed right now, but you know how it is when you can't relax but feel so sick, you SHOULD be sleeping, but don't FEEL like it??? That's how I'm feeling right now, but I am so glad that you found teaching to be of some enjoyment to you. I know when I taught it was VERY rewarding seeing students improve! I LOVED that! I sure hope you feel better soon too, before your trip.

May God's angel's hands lift you up and make you well. Ps 91:11 Amen

Those head-colds are horrible. I am glad that you were still able to teach the class :)

I sure hope you guys start feeling better very soon. We've all been fighting many different colds around HERE. I'm so wore down...
