The last couple of days have been testy for me. I'm guilty of being angry about the small things and immediately conflicted afterwards. I pray and find myself apologizing to God for my poor choice in handling a motorist cutting me off in traffic, or a phone call at my desk barking orders at me about a late payment for the department and I had little control over. Of course the list goes on, but truth be told, I handled these affairs poorly. I have to remind myself to relax, take a deep breath and leave it in God's hands. It can be hard, but it must be done. I truly admire those that have a great deal of patience and can let these types of obstacles in their life roll of their back. My wife, Terri is so great at dealing with these sorts of events. I do look up to her.
One hand full of rest is better than two fists full of labor and striving after wind.
I continue to pray for my family and friends. I pray for the lost and confused. I prey for the church and the leaders working to make, maintain and keep things moving forward. I pray for our Nation!
