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.
