Sunday Burnout


Last night as I was preparing Sharing Time for Primary and thinking about  writing the Children's Sacrament meeting program for Primary, I was over whelmed! I was thinking about burnout...I have only had this calling since February I thought to myself.  Then I realized I had this calling for two years in Indiana before this. Yes, it feels like I have reached my limits, but I believe the Lord is there to help me and I will continue to serve until He feels that there is some other way I can serve.
Then today as I looked around our congregation (AFTER my sharing  time was finished) I thought of all of the children and here I will even say, my favorites. Sweet and her brother Jake. Drew who is so well behaved and handsome each week. Wesley who always adds a dimension that I hadn't thought of. Little Rosie who is so  friendly and smiley. I love Elyssa and Hannah who are quiet, but are listening. I don't know how they feel about me, but I know that it is my job to teach with the spirit and to love each of them. I know their families are the foundation upon which all their learning is based, but I feel a great responsibility to each of them and I realize that when my time is finished, I will miss these little ones. I will miss what I learn directly from them and what I learn as a by-product by preparing my lessons for them.
Yes, I have been in Primary for a long time, but I do love it and after Sunday, October 24. I will again feel as it there is no other calling in church I could love more!

You're right, that program prep almost puts a person over the edge. Primary has its perks though. My friend and I used to say that Primary is the funniest place at church, the kids always say something hilarious!

You are awesome! That is why you are in primary. I'm sure the program will be amazing because the one you did here was. Hugs.
