Just say thank you...

A few nights ago a staff member approached me after a meeting which i opened and closed in prayer. They said they liked how i prayed.

Insert awkwardness here.

I consequently stood around and spluttered out odd "humms and urrs."

My floundering must have been hidden poorly, since she (thankfully) said plainly... "Just say thank you."

So i did.

I don't know why i took the praise so poorly. A significant part of my job currently is leading church services and leading public prayer is definitely a segment of that. So really, i should have been stoked to get such feedback.

Oh well, i must have some deep trauma that means that i shun well-meaning praise from others and instead squirm like a gasping fish that's on dry land.
