Sorry I have not posted for a few days. I've been down with the flu bug and have been resting as I preached today. I was only given a few days lead time to prepare. I came down with a sore throat the day after agreeing to preach. During the last three days I spent my time praying and crafting a sermon between massive sinus headaches, emergency trips to the loo, bed rest, and all the nice things the flu brings.
You can always tell when there is a major flu epidemic in our area as most pharmacies are out of Sudafed and other over the counter flu remedies. The Northwest has been hit pretty hard this flu season. Several people I know got over it in three days while others really got sick. Two of my friends have pneumonia so I was taking no chances.
Anyhow, I'm feeling better (I think i'm a 3 day person) but my sleep cycle is way off from my normal routine. I'm going to try to get some sleep now.
