MM: The Good, the Bad, & the UGLY


Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters


Good:  got up to go walk early this morning & got a mile in before the kiddos were up


Bad:  forgot to put more minutes on the cell phone


Good:  the minutes (although late) seemed to show up in good time, so my procrastination (seemingly) didn’t cost me


Bad:  minutes good, deactivation bad (That flushing sound you hear is my money going down the drain…)


Bad:  customer service is ludicrously less than helpful


Worse:  my attitude is embarassingly not very patient.  or kind.  or forgiving.  (or accepting of blame…see procrastination above)


Worst:  the sermon yesterday was on patience.  I was going to be a model of forebearance today.  I think there’s a better chance that I gave others an excuse to practice it toward me.


Good:  in the end, after worrying, ranting, complaining, simmering, pouting, and dwelling on this problem (of my own making), the phone turns out to still work


UGLY:  didn’t exactly set a great example for the kids today.  or the people I scowled at without thinking of it at Wal-Mart.  or my family who had to listen to me complain.  or the customer service folks who tried to the best of their ability to help me.


Good:  even when I’m more than a little unpleasant and my attitude isn’t right, my Lord doesn’t reject me


Better:  when I ask Him to help me to overcome my weaknesses and sins, He will


Best:  tomorrow is a new day


“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”

Lamentations 3:22-23
