So I haven't made huge progress on my sermon for this weekend yet - it's a really difficult subject - blessing your enemies. But I had spent 4-5 hours in and out of study this afternoon and had been typing notes into a research document. This is usually my first step. Before I left the office at 7:22 this evening - I pressed save and then unplugged my laptop and packed it up for home.
When I got home- I had a quick bite for dinner and then plugged in to get things set up for after the kids go to bed. I opened the document and it didn't include any of the notes that I took today. I was sick to the point of wanting to vomit. Not only am I behind already - but now am 4-5 more hours behind. I called Dave Winn (our I.T. guy from church) to see if he could rescue me. He promptly came over and remotely found a document on the server at church that was saved at 7:22 pm. He then rescued my document from the server - thank you Jesus for Dave Winn and all I.T. peeps out there. Holy smokes I might have done myself in if it weren't for him!
Dave made me promise that in return I wouldn't convict him too much with the sermon this weekend. Sorry - no promises on that one... Maybe he should "get sick" during services because I have a feeling the sermon is going to be a whack between the eyes for some.
