Perspective

Today was total crap.

Work sucks. There is minimal direction on what we are supposed to communicate and what we are expected to accomplish in the remaining time on contract. Our customers are going to be unhappy no matter what we do right now.

That's the down side.

The upside? I have an amazing family that I love. I have a church that is finally getting it about teaching Scripture. I have dreams and goals and ambitions. Yet, I know that I am not what I do, or who I lead, or what I make.

All of the surface stuff is less than what it appears...no matter how much stress it causes in the moment. That is some comfort.

I know that tomorrow, I will rise and face the challenges that life places before me. I will be victorious. I will be an example for my children about how to face adversity, and succeed.

Because, my power is not mine. My power is in the Lord.

Is yours?

Pax,

What can I say but if you were here I'd give you a big Celtic/Viking hug, and offer a prayer for whatever ails you. (and cake, don't forget cake).

Get some rest my friend.

Yep, mine cometh from the same fount - and it is good. Thank you for the reminder. Peace be with you, sir.

And Brigid - the hugs and cake are a good thing, too!

Thank you for the reminder. Yes, it comes from the same place, but it is far too easy to forget sometimes.
