Hey friends and family. How was your day? I started off the day feeling good about myself after I successfully remembered to do my Sabbath school lesson. But on the way to work, my mood went from perky to cloudy.
Ten minutes away from my job site something came to mind, something that required me to turn back around towards my house. Do you ever have those times when you forget something or think you forgot something at the house? Did I lock all the doors? Do I have my cellphone? Do I have my name tag? Did I leave my wallet? Is everything off /unplugged? Call me paranoid, but I always double check that the alarm is set; house doors are locked; lights are off; certain things are unplugged; and that I have what I need in my pockets. This time, I actually hadn’t forgotten anything, so starting back home had only made me nine minutes late. I know I showed up to work at least, but being late was enough to make me walk through the doors looking like I had just had a rough night.
An hour into my shift, just when I thought the day couldn’t get worse, three plates slipped from my hands as as I tried to set the plates down in the caddie with all the other clean plates. Naturally a couple of un-Christian words slipped past my lips as I stared at the broken pieces glittered on the floor. After scolding myself, a coworker and I swept up all the pieces; cleaned the caddie; and ran all the intact plates through the dish machine to ensure there was nothing on them.
As I was on my lunch break, I was asked my good friend Ezequiel if I wanted to participate in an upcoming church concert. I’m almost never hesitant to lend my voice, especially for God, so naturally I said “yes”. Over the past month, Ezequiel and other Bible Workers have been in residence at my church to do evangelizing here in our town. I’m really going to miss them when they leave Clarksville to continue their work and whatever plans God has in store for them. Seeing such motivated; God loving people around and hearing about all the people they’ve reached on their mission makes me want to continue bettering myself and talk more about God’s love myself.
My plans for the rest of the evening include:
- Talking to my girlfriend and hope we can hang out tomorrow on my day off.
- Tossing out old papers I don’t need. As an English minor, I find myself holding onto some past assignments that can make good stories.
- Ironing some clothes and decide what can go to Goodwill.
- Brainstorming blog ideas.
- Read blogs and give feedback.
Have a good night!
