Weekly Improvements

Just a quick Monday morning post to fulfill my self-imposed writing obligation.

First off--Happy Birthday to my baby girl. She is no longer a baby but a wonderful young woman! I'm glad she was able to get to come home for the weekend!

I am really looking forward to the week!
Early day at work today (by that I mean 1pm-9pm instead of 3-11), earlier day tomorrow followed by a Gordon Lightfoot concert with Chris on Tuesday, an evening with my friends at Cedar Ridge Baptist Church on Wednesday and a weekend gig in South Florida!

It's a good week to be John Hill!

However, I really want to concentrate on the area of personal ministry; not the professional ministry of going to churches for hire, but the personal contacts we make every day. I am constantly reminded of how small my world is and how few people I actually meet each day. Because of my odd hours, I rarely see my neighbors. I see the same few people at work and...
...and well, that's about it. I make contact with one or two friends from church or friends in ministry, but not much else. I guess I'm going to have to overcome that anti-social side of my personality if I'm going to move in an area of personal ministry.

This week I'm also going to really focus on being a more positive influence. I'm going to work to lift others up. Rather than ignoring negativity when I encounter it; I'm going to counter it with positive words or acts. That will be tough since my tendency has been to ignore it.

At the end of the week, I hope to be a better John than I am today.
How about you? Feel like being a better you by the end of the week? Let's come back and compare notes next week. See you then!

'I hope to be a better John'

I'm going to work up the better Mike slowly.

Thank you, Angel. If you actually knew me, you would know just how far I have to go...
