Some thoughts, lessons, and/or reflections from the day:

  • It’s 9:55 PM and I’ve finally finished my work for the day so I sit in my office writing today’s page to unwind before heading home.
  • It was another beautiful night sky as I headed into work this morning but still no moon visible.  I eventually discovered why when I saw it crest the eastern tree line early in the afternoon — it’s just on a more daytime cycle at the moment.
  • The soundtrack in my mind has been pretty consistent all day, though it keeps getting louder. 🙂  “Precious Lord, take my hand. Lead me on, help me stand. I am tired, I am weak, I am worn.”
  • After the usual prayer, cleaning, and building prep it was back to trying to get answers from a service company.  I did finally get a call back, but all they could tell me was that they would have to research the issue further and would get back to me . . . sometime.
  • In between the calls and messages related to that, I finished another week’s daily devotions for the next prayer-based devotional book.  This chapter was focused on serving with honesty.
  • Being a Friday, I anticipated a late day so by mid-afternoon I took a late lunch and spent some time with God along the river.
  • While sitting there, I had a poem show up in my mind and surprisingly it stayed there until I got back to the office and could type it out.  If you’ve not seen it on this blog site already, you can find it here: “Words“.
  • After the extended lunch hour, it was time to head back to the building and type out the poem before starting the evening cleaning and building prep for the weekend.
  • I think one of the most difficult things in life is knowing I don’t measure up, but one of the best things in life is knowing that God doesn’t measure me by any human’s standard . . . including my own.
  • I guess today’s photo is part of the “reflections” from the day. 🙂  While I was at the river, I noticed the wood ducks were back for the spring so I shot this photo of one of them as he swam through some partially submerged brush.

    • The wood ducks are some of my favorites. I often call them “wooden ducks” because they look like someone bought some wooden decoys and painted them up all fancy. 🙂
