I am taking a pause today from the everyday hubbub of life as I had the opportunity to take a day off. I went to my condo and generally vegged the day away. Then, an hour ago, I checked for messages and found one from hospice letting me know that a parishioner was actively dying. So, I threw my coat and shoes on and rushed over to the house and anointed the parishioner who they expect to die before tomorrow.
Now, I’m back at the condo relaxing. I think I’ll watch a little television in my recliner and fall asleep.
