Spent the morning replying to messages. I don't like voice mail either, but I always appreciate when someone at least leaves their name - that way you know they have called.
When it comes to emails — I have started to employ a simple rule: If I open it – I read it – I reply. Why wait for spring to reply. If I don't have time to reply just then, I don't open it until I do.
Much of the day was occupied with two up coming weddings.
Also visited a grieving family – one quiet pastoral call – one NA.
Wedding rehearsal in the evening.
