Cubase, self-examination and a day off!

You wake up with thoughts in your mind. 

Thoughts about music, ministry and motivation.

First, I finally got some extended time today to work with some music recording software called Cubase SE.  A definite upgrade from Cool Edit.  I cut and pasted, made a marvelous drum roll and took some cassette recordings and moved them to CD.  I’m finding in the midst of this that I have a bit of a knack for the engineering side of audio recording.  This is fun!!

Yesterday I completed a leadership test.  The results of this 22/23 question quiz gave a general overview of how I approach leadership.  Some of the results were generalizations but on the whole truth prevailed.  I am a facilitator type of leader.  I work best with groups and teams — I’m a mediator more than a confronter.  Today I considered these results (not that they are new thoughts, just packaged in a new way).  Given a bit more time, perhaps new approaches for ministry will result.

This was my regular day off.  Once a week Sabbath is necessary — and I haven’t been all that good at keeping my Sabbath the past few weeks.  I feel refreshed as I come to the end of the day. 

For you — may this day also have been one of fortification for the coming days.  And may God have granted to you a peek over today’s fence into the lush fields he has provided for the coming days!!

One thought on “Cubase, self-examination and a day off!

  1. Hi!

    You sound refreshed and energized. A day off is meant to be that. Refreshing also comes from being reminded of our gifts – what we are good at energizes us.

    May each gifting from the Lord burst forth with JOY great joy.

    May your congregation discover the excitement of God’s strength flowing through the body as He builds His kingdom. May all be ready for a mighty move of God.
