I'm not usually the kind of guy who looks at the past and longs for the 'good ol' days'. Typically, I like the days I'm living in. But lately, and especially today, I've been looking back at the early days in my youth ministry career and longing for just a taste of the good ol' days. Right now, the good ol' days I long for are the days that I didn't go to endless meetings...the days I didn't spend hours figuring out budget issues...the days I knew every kid by name...heck, the days I knew every volunteer by name!
But today, I find myself at a break between two meetings that will last way too long discussing things that are way too miniscule. Maybe I'm not really longing for the good ol' days right now; just any day other than this one!
