August 11, 2020 - I have absolutely nothing to say, but
Tuesday, August 11, 2020
Disheartened today. Got good rest (only one wake up from 1-2am) and got up to a good breakfast and an otherwise lovely mist-shrouded morning. But I read the local newspaper and it was filled with 'bad news'. Covid-19 counts, return to school dilemmas, massive looting in Chicago, Russian interference in elections, USPS being undermined, unhealthy EPA regulations, recession, unemployment, boogaloos armed against BLMs protesters...the list goes on and on.
And I am relatively safe and secure in my bubble, feeling helpless to be a part of the solution. Dismayed when I hear "this is God's will", when I know in my heart there is great evil in the world. I always start and end my morning prayers with 'thank you for your promise that You will never leave me' as I trust Him in all my circumstances that out of the bad comes the good. But that DOES NOT change the bad, only my ability to grow & learn from it. Not sure how that helps change anything.
Sorry I am morose today. Have a phone interview for a position serving seniors in San Diego. Maybe I should be working, I don't know.
