GI Jane - Is She Back?

The kids are probably beginning to think that there is no mercy around here. But in reality, life in this house is much softer than it once was. It is only a shadow of what it used to be. And lately I'm thinking I need to shape up the troops again. So bring on the drill sargeant. Basic training. Yup. That's what I'm thinking.

I remember the day when Pastor Mike Tomford would step inside my door and within minutes he would smirk and refer to me as the Sarge. For lots of different reasons, those days are long gone. But maybe not forever gone. I think I can see the emergence of that former authority. Give me a few more days like this one and we may be humming like a fine tuned machine once again. I don't know. I have my doubts most of the time, but deep inside I want that. I long for that. I LOVE THAT!!

So I will hold onto that notion. And perhaps when boot camp is over, I will be smiling again.

Oh Darlene, honestly, it's such a relief to hear you say that! It helps to have a picture of what is required to get a "smooth running operation." Organization does not come to me naturally, and some of my guys seem to follow in my footsteps and I despair about the whole deal. Ok....good reminder!
