Yesterday morning I went to update my cell phone. (I should know better). All was fine until I had to give my password for my email account which I use the most. It is my msn.com one. I’ve had it since I first started an email account over 20 years ago. At this point in time I don’t have a clue what it is. I entered what I thought and made a few adjustments fitting what I thought I may have done and of course, nothing was right. I got home and went to work to “change my password”. This requires answering questions I could no longer answer so I maxed out the attempts for both changing the password and entering the original one. My message was that I’d need to wait until tomorrow to restart. It is now tomorrow so I’m going to see if I can make this work! In times past I would chalk all of this up to the fact I’m unworthy and unfit for this type of luxury. I’m so glad those days are behind me. Now I know I’m just old and very forgetful!
Tonight is the time when the two counselors are meeting with our recovery group leaders. I’m really looking forward to having all of us together to hear what we can learn from them. Our time is drawing close to our start.
Last night our worship pastor (choir director) had everyone involved in our forthcoming Christmas production come together to try out for specific parts. I was only there because I volunteered to be a caroler and in the choir portion. One of the main characters in the production is someone who’d make Scrooge look polite and nice. When I heard several of his lines I made the statement that he had a lot in common with a “horse’s part”. In so doing I offended a man sitting close to me and he lit into me like I haven’t been since dad days. I wasn’t sure what to do with this so I asked God for direction this morning. It seemed clear I need to apologize for offending him. I know my “humor” has done this in times past. So, I will apologize when I see him again.
It is funny how two rather small things: updating a cell phone and taking part in a production tryout, can lead to such major time consumers. I know I’m to learn from them what God wants me to glean and then let go of the rest. They seem small but when living one day at a time, they are routine items I don’t want to repeat any time soon.
