Time is short

All of it sudden it seems – there is little time to do all the things that need to be done prior to a removal. I have given up trying to weed out books, though that probably means we shall be buried under a mountain of them. The new house just does not have the space for all the bookshelves. Someone told me that the homes of newly retired people are invariably very cluttered. I had been hoping to avoid that, but it is getting too late to do much about that. We shall have to continue the process of decluttering from Dalmally.

I have been thinking about what I shall miss most, and what I am looking forward to the most. It is difficult to be objective, as by nature, I want to put the emphasis o­n the positive. Also, being off sick for many months has enabled me to adjust to a new rhythm and pace of life. But I already miss the challenge of preaching and the responsibility for finding effective ways to make worship a relevant part of life. In time, I hope to be involved in preaching in different congregations, but for now I need to recover and allow a gap between leaving this much loved place and finding a new way of life altogether.

What am I most looking forward to?
The gift of time, (If I'm spared and well as my granny said!) – time to enjoy hobbies, family, friends and new challenges……including time to write.

So I guess I must be feeling a whole load better.
