January 6th- Feast of the Epiphany
Recently, a friend was on Facebook and for their Christmas vacation they uploaded a “Captain’s Log” just like those old Star Trek journal entries.
So, my thought is why not try a similar log for each week as I begin the adventure of founding Ozark Catholic Academy in Northwest Arkansas. One of the things that I will try to do is at the end of each week to do a small blog/journal entry on the week’s action or progress. I see two benefits of such a journal as I am coming from the successful founding of Western Academy in Houston: first to see my progress in a proactive way as I go “week to week” taking small, large, and giant steps to the opening of the school. The journal may also assist in giving me perseverance to make the school a reality. The second benefit is to create a history that hopefully with God’s grace and fulfilling God’s will the school opens well and prospers.
I just finished my first week here in Northwest Arkansas most of it focused on the family as the children started in their respective schools, continuing to unpack, and getting my feet wet in terms of knowing the lay of the land not as a visitor but from a resident’s point of view.
Practical lesson of the week, dealing with Northwest Arkansas traffic is a pleasure compared to dealing with traffic or the length of commuting in Houston.
