The last couple months at work have been a tremendous editing workout.
The sheer volume of information coming in regarding holiday events, along with the stockpiling of stories in anticipation for vacation days during Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year; and the tighter weekend editor rotation has stretched my brain and endurance in wonderful and frustrating ways.
It's a rare Sunday I even peek at Before the Blood, but maybe even that project should receive a day of rest.
I love the growth. I just don't always love the process.
Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14
Paul, of course, is referring to heavenly matters, but during times of kicking the heat up a few notches and increasing the weights I lift, I cling to these words.
Anyway, these are my thoughts as I leave a working weekend behind and enter the new work week.
