I went to church for a half hour before work this morning.Â It isn’t a beautiful sanctuary with stained glass windows, but the lights were low and Jason was playing guitar and singing praise.Â There weren’t a lot of people there, but those who were, sang and prayed and I left with a peace.Â I could start the day like that every day.
A student was killed in a car accident last night.Â It was not known til this morning and the kids were already wound up because tonight is the bonfire.Â There are having a candlelight silent time in her memory.Â I couldn’t go. I knew her by face but other than that not really.Â I have friends who lived right next to her while she was growing up – she used to keep their kids.Â She was a senior yesterday and now she is gone.
I made it the whole 24 hours and didn’t even really fell any discomfort til pretty close to the end of the day.Â Food was on my mind but I didn’t want it – weird.Â I may try to do this every now and then.Â Every time I thought about food I remembered to pray. Even with all the crazy little things going on all day.
A server tanked today and I have people scheduled in the lab and no idea if anyone will be able to log in.Â We don’t realize just how ubiquitous technology has become – until it is broken.Â Tomorrow will be interesting.Â I’m sure there will be a lot of questions and complaints.Â It’s Friday though and we will survive! Hug your kids tonight – I know I will mine.
What a wonderful way to start your day- I know for me, if I don’t spend time with the Lord first thing, my day seems a little more rattled. Please continue to pray for that student’s family- I had the pleasure of having her little sister in my class last year (her first year in our district) and she adored her older sister.
Today is Friday, so if everything else is hectic at school, we at least have that to celebrate! Enjoy your day 🙂
