Thanks for all the well wishes for the healing of my left foot. Much appreciated. Doctor says the wound is healing nicely. Lying on my back with my foot elevated gives me lots of time to think. It is ironic that I am in this situation…I should have paid attention to my own speeches and workshops. I learned as a leader to “only do those things that only you can do”. Someone else could have cut down that tree. I tell my audiences to develop a list of tasks that then prioritize that list using the Eisenhower Box method (based on what is urgent and what is important). Cutting down that tree was neither urgent, nor important…but I did it anyway. I will definitely be more deliberate in the future as to how I spend my time.
Lying on my back all day also gives me more time to pray and spend time with our God. With all the things I have going on, my daily Bible Study was being rushed…and even when I was in “The Word” I was thinking about all I had to do that day. Now I am focused…thanks Lord for giving me this opportunity to focus. As it says in 2 Corinthians 4:17 “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”
