The Plan

To be honest, I feel somewhat in a funk right now.  I feel stuck in a situation I can't control, and I am close to being overwhelmed with these out-of-control circumstances.  In reading this book, though, and in praying and reflecting on God's control over all things, I have come to see that while I have no control over some things in my life, I do have control over other things-like being nice.  I can choose to be friendly to my neighbors when I go for a walk around the 'hood.  I can choose to invite some neighbors over and make a nice meal so that we can all enjoy a nice evening together.  As I go through hard times with circumstances I can't control, I've found it very helpful to find something I can control, and invest my time and effort in that.

Me too! I remember how much fun it was to walk in downtown Alexandria . . . pretty cool that we've walked together on both coasts!
