I am working at home today. I have put in 3 hours so far, and have meetings this afternoon. I will do well more than my 8. I guess that’s OK.
This morning I reached for my phone as soon as my eyes opened (hate to admit it, but I do it every morning). I saw the headline “Pope Benedict Resigns,” and could hardly believe it. No pope has resigned in 600 years! I have really liked the direction Pope Benedict has taken the church, and I hope his successor will continue his lead. I must say, I was surprised but when I saw his rationale, I agree. It is my speculation that he watched Pope John Paul II as his health declined and said “I will never do that.” He said the world moves so fast now, it requires a healthy man to keep up with it. Still sad to see him go 😦
That’s it for today. Grateful to be alive. Grateful to be sober. Grateful beyond words for the Grace of God.
Daniel said, “I will worship teh Lord my God, for he is the living God. But if you, O king, will give me permission, I will slay the dragon without sword or club. The king said, “I give you permission.” — Daniel 14: 25-26
