I Hate Mondays

Have you ever wondered why God made Mondays? Why couldn't He have made a week of Fridays? Well, today wasn't so bad to be a Monday. I went to work last night...dreading every minute of it. I didn't sleep good yesterday...probably because I knew I had to go to work. But I worked all night...and I actually love what I do. I mean, having all that news at your fingertips...knowing the news before anyone else does...that's great. And it was especially great last night because I was on Bob Woodruff watch all night. For those of you who do not know who he is...he is an anchor on ABC News. He was severely injured in Iraq Sunday, so all night I was watching for any word on his condition. And I was pleased to know that he is in stable condition and his wife is with him today. I really like Bob I was saddened to hear he'd been hurt.

I worked all night last night...knowing I would be faced with the boss-lady eventually. But I didn't have to talk to her today. She stayed in her office and didn't say a word to me...and just as I was getting off work this morning, my friend, Tracy, called me. Tracy works the same shift I work. So, we chatted for quite a while. It was just good to talk to a friend.

I said in an earlier post that I was going to try and find good about something everyday...

Thank you, GOd, that I am loved. I don't deserve your love, but you give it freely.

Thank you, God, for making me care about my job so much. Even though I am having a hard time right now, it's good to know that I believe in what I do.

In a response to yesterday's post, I was reminded that Jesus is in charge and I need to cast all my cares on Him because He cares for me. I know this, but trusting has never been my strong suit. I don't trust anyone when it comes to my it's hard for me to trust the Lord. But my friend, Rachel told me the same thing on the phone the other day. So, I guess I need to pray that GOd will help me to trust Him more. Please pray for me in that way...

Nicole -- remember how I was sitting at the nature preserve when we were chatting? Right after I got off the phone with you I had some great time with the Lord. It was awesome. Thinking of you -- you're a blessing in my life. :0)
