The first day back at work after being away for three days is always the roughest. I knew this before my I went to work today. I got up and prayed. I asked God to give me grace for the day. I would hate to think what my day would have been like if I didn’t start it off this way.
It was a crazy day and I can’t believe how close I came to quitting. I was getting yelled at for things I didn’t do because I was there for the past three days. I was thinking why I almost lost it today. I wasn’t disrespectful to my boss, but I did tell him to back off. In relaying my day to Tom, he asked me an interesting question. He wanted to know if I was trying to get fired. I wasn’t, but I was firmer than I ever was in the six years I worked there.
I feel like my time there is coming to an end. I believe God will provide a way for me to be able to quit and minister with Tom. My heart is not in it anymore, but I want to finish well. I want to do my best everyday. It’s important to do what is in front of you with excellence, before you move on to the new thing. I don’t want to circle this mountain again. How you leave one thing can affect how you enter the new thing. I know this in my head. Sometimes things get lost between the head and the heart. I guess I needed this reminder today. I thank God for bringing me to a place where I can recognize it.
The day ended well. I had dinner with a friend and we came back to my house for some Tim Tams. Yummy. Tomorrow night I get to dine with a couple of more ladies. You guessed it…more Tim Tams.
My bag got delivered and as you can see from the picture above at least I have my cute shoes.
