Since Last Sunday
Since last Sunday, I have learned that I won't be getting a promotion at work. (At least for the time being, until I can handle a larger caseload.)
Since last Sunday, the gas shortage in Atlanta has only gotten crazier.
Since last Sunday, Christy and I met and helped Carl (see last Sunday's post) again. This time we bought him some soap and razors to shave.
Since last Sunday, I've watched a fascinating Presidential debate. Both candidates engaged in some silly politicking, but both also gave detailed policy answers. I'm happy to report Obama did not come off as a naive fool. I'm relieved to report that McCain came off less reckless than I've previously thought him to be. (Although his behavior this past week makes me think otherwise.)
Since last Sunday....okay today....Christy and I volunteered at the Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children, along with our friend Chandra Hodoval (who apparently graduated with a toy bulldozer on her head) (yes, that's actually her).
This week, I want to do better at my work and stop panicking about it. I want to have a heart that cares for my fellow human beings, as opposed to coldly walking past them because I'm late and I've got some panicking to do. I want to spend time with my friends in Bible Study, prepare for my 5-year class reunion from Vanderbilt (I know Mike and Joy plan on coming and assume Bradley, Lori, and Sarah will be there), and prepare to travel to Jacksonville for my cousin Amanda's wedding next weekend. It's a busy life, and astoundingly easy to lose perspective. So that's what I pray for. A heart with love and a head with perspective.
