I have had a long day. Started to work before the Sun rose. Didn't get back into the house until after the Sun set. Sermons worked upon and a hospital and a couple of waiting rooms visited and classes taught and 150 miles driven and two fast food meals on the go scarfed down.
But I tell you what -- a long day of actually doing Word and Sacrament ministry beats the tar out of a short day of busy/paper-work any day of the week.
