Today was our firs “work” day. I say “work” because not everyone really worked. It wasn’t for a lack of trying. We wanted to. But for some, they were told to wait. This morning we met Brian, the leader of Hope CDA. We are partnering with Hope CDA in helping with the recovery from Katrina. It is weird to say that things still aren’t fully recovered. But it’s true.. it’s not. It’s sad. It’s heart breaking really.
We were given rules that we needed to adhere by.. the first: Blessed are the flexible, for they won’t be bent out of shape. This is what I’ve been saying for years.. and once again I’m putting it into practice. I think for many of us, it’s hard to be flexible.We know how it should be done. We know how it needs to be done. But sometimes we need to take a step back and allow God to do what needs to be done.
Tomorrow is another day. A day that will be filled with flexibility and resisting the urge to throw stones.
