Monday, Monday

I awoke this morning to a prompting by one of our dogs to let him out, only to discover it was pouring down rain. Naturally, he changed his mind about rushing outdoors-- I made him go, anyway. I wasn't being mean or trying to get revenge for waking me up, I just knew he needed to relieve himself and better outside than in! As much as I do not relish a rainy day, the fact of the matter is that we have had little rain this Spring and Summer and really need to replenish the water table. My lawn shows signs of drought, as it looks like I might expect it to in late August. So, I offer thanks to God for the rain and the help it will bring to things that struggle with little or no water. I also think about the situation with many in California and there longstanding lack of rain.

I have a situation going on at work than I won't discuss here, but will admit gives me reason to be concerned. It involves people I have worked with for many years (and some not so long) and leaves me with some internal conflict (what is right versus what 'feels' right).

I made it to Church Saturday night for our usual time of worship and fellowship afterward, which was nice. I did not make it Sunday morning (I had intended to go to another Church nearby that I really like). I simply had too much needing to be taken care of. I have let things go way too long at home, in terms of the yard and a serious need for new stain on the deck. Such was my weekend: sanding, painting, foundation patching and lawn mowing. By the way, I discovered that patching the brick part of my foundation was not as easy as I thought it would be; no, not at all. I don't say any of this in a complaining fashion, I was really glad to get some things done and actually enjoyed it, for the most part. I am grateful for the home God has given us and think I need to show my appreciation through more action, in regard to keeping it up.

The Church I attend Saturday nights is very enjoyable. I have been going there for a few years now and have really started to "feel at home." Plus, my wife has made some friends there that she looks forward to seeing, as well. However,theologically my beliefs line up better with the Church I planned to go to Sunday morning. I have been on-and-off going to a Bible study there on Wednesday nights and appreciate the solid biblical teaching that is offered there. I have been thinking seriously about making a commitment there. More on that when I finally make up my mind!
