I went to church for a half hour before work this morning. It isn’t a beautiful sanctuary with stained glass windows, but the lights were low and Jason was playing guitar and singing praise. There weren’t a lot of people there, but those who were, sang and prayed and I left with a peace. I could start the day like that every day.
A student was killed in a car accident last night. It was not known til this morning and the kids were already wound up because tonight is the bonfire. There are having a candlelight silent time in her memory. I couldn’t go. I knew her by face but other than that not really. I have friends who lived right next to her while she was growing up – she used to keep their kids. 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. Food was on my mind but I didn’t want it – weird. I may try to do this every now and then. 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. We don’t realize just how ubiquitous technology has become – until it is broken. Tomorrow will be interesting. I’m sure there will be a lot of questions and complaints. It’s Friday though and we will survive! Hug your kids tonight – I know I will mine.
