Telephone calls from two different sponsees who want to drink because "life stuff" keeps jumping out of the corners for their day dressed like the boogie man and screaming like a banshee. Both of them have all kinds of grace shining on them and cannot even see it. Sigh. Which reminds me that I have all kinds of grace shinning on me and lots of days I don't see it.
We have had the most wonderful weather here and I have been enjoying the dirt in my backyard. The whole "working for a living" part of my day, really robs me of a lot of time outdoors.
- That I can usually see that a few bad days will pass and that a new set of good and bad days will follow.
- That God made dirt and plant roots.
- That I understand my own responsibilities in my "moods" and outlook.
- That seeking God is not an afterthought.
