Sometimes I think God just like to mess with me, I think he get great pleasure out of seeing me get upset or thrown off task. Take this morning for example, I posted my first blog with no problem, I stat in on this blog with a solid idea of what I want to write, and BAM! My laptop decides its a great time to reboot with an issue.. So now as I write this I am running every security check, registry cleaner and spy program I have, to make sure it don’t happen anytime too soon, and to make sure all my data is safe.

Now I know God didn’t do this, but sometimes I wonder, maybe He didn’t like the topic I was going to blog about or maybe He just likes to see me get frustrated…. No matter, I can’t remember what the topic was, so it must not have been that great of an idea and I was able to get to some real work (my 9 to 5 job stuff).

But now I sit here with no real idea of what I want to blog about, no words of wisdom to give…

Funny how things work out, I had a “great” idea, or so I thought, all pick out for today, one little distraction and BAM, it’s gone… Life can be that way, we are moving along, and BAM, everything changes, we get distracted by the death of a loved one the loss of a job or a child is ill, and life seems to change, be it good or bad it changes.

What matters is how we deal with the BAM’s in our life, take my computer crashing this morning, I had a few options I could have taken, 1) Get mad 2) Fix it 3) Do nothing, or any combination of the 3, I chose to fix it, I didn’t get mad, I didn’t do nothing, I stopped what I was doing and resolved the issue, well in truth I had to my laptop went down.

When death or illness hits we have the same basic options, get mad, deal with it (fix it) or do nothing. Once again we can combine them anyway we like.  But what we choose to do will change the rest of our life… So choose wisely…

Today my mood is like the weather we are having here in Michigan, damp. I feel damp, not quite sure how to explain it, but damp is the work that comes to mind.

For me, damp means a cold to the bone wet feeling that not even a hot bath can cure, and that’s how I feel.

Not sure why I feel this way, i could be that I am getting frustrated with the state of our economy, or all the bail outs and  free for all spending going on in DC, yet here I am struggling to make it. It could also be that the end of the year for the youth group I run is not coming fast enough for me, or a whole host of other issues or a combination of things. All I know for sure is I feel damp.

My mood is mine and I choose to allow it to affect me or not, and at the moment I am going with it, I am work, and really have not contact today with people, so I can deal with it, by the end of the day I will no longer allow me to feel damp, I will have to find a new feeling, but for now it’s damp.

Soggy was a close second to describe how I feel, but damp won out. What’s the difference you may ask, well I will tell you. A soggy feeling is a more penetrating feeling, takes longer to dry out, where as damp, although penetrating it is not as penetrating as soggy and the dry out time is quicker.  Don’t believe me, take two pieces of white bread, dampin on one and make the other soggy, walk away and wait…… The damp one will dry out before the soggy….

So that’s what I need, a little time to dry out, time to un-dampin myself before I do get soggy…
