Hello everyone! I have been busy since the weekend at work, and I also had a meeting to attend last night; it was the church council meeting. Last year I was asked by the deacon at our church, if I would chair a meeting three times a year, as he was taking over the pastoral care of two chapels, which were losing their minister. He had been impressed by the way I led the Lenten discussion series. I was of course flattered and agreed. I would be leading a meeting twice a year at our church, and chairing one meeting out of two, which we have with our local Anglican Church; already that was one meeting more than I had thought. Next I discovered that I also needed to attend the monthly executive meeting at our church, and the church council meeting, which meets two or three times a year!! The three meetings has certainly grown somewhat! However I do like to be involved in the church, as I am getting to know people better. I gave one lady a lift home, and as she got out of the car, she said that Oatlands Chapel’s loss was their gain!! I drove on home with a beaming smile on my face.
This morning I was up early as I had an appointment to see the doctor about this strange thing on my foot. I went in and said to him, jokingly, it has not changed in size or appearance, maybe I just have to live with it! He had a look at it and agreed with me about it not changing at all, and I expected him to just say it will eventually go; but he has referred me to the Dermatologist at the hospital. He told me to expect an appointment within two weeks. I set off for home, and I had only just arrived home, when the phone rang; it was the Dermatology department offering me an appointment for 9am next Wednesday! I am very impressed by the way our GP interacts with our local hospital! I am curious to know what it is and look forward to next Wednesday. Life never ceases to surprise me!
