Have you ever gone on one of those rides at the fair or at an amusement park that spins you around and around (I use to like those rides, now I guess I am getting too old, because they make me sick!). I learned a trick when I was younger, if you focus on one thing, and not allow your eyes to see everything else that is going on around you, it is much easier to not "lose your lunch". It is the same way in ministry I think. We, as a society (and therefore in ministry) are moving faster and faster. We have to keep our eyes fixed on the thing right in front of us to make sure we don't "lose our lunch"!
Be encouraged, seasons of life tend to be busier than others, and this is a season that is almost always busy for every kids pastor.
