It's Monday Morning. Back to work. I have a meeting with my boss this morning. I am praying about whether to confront him about some stuff. There is probably a 50% chance he will cancel the meeting. He has canceled our last 3 scheduled monthly meetings. It is a real challenge to "rise above" crap at work sometimes. I need God's help to do this.

"For we are now on a different basis; the basis of trusting and relying upon God. We trust infinite God rather than our finite selves. We are in the world to play the role He assigns. Just to the extent that we do as we think He would have us, and humbly rely on Him, does He enable us to match calamity with serenity." Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 68

Isn't it nice to be back to routine? I love the familiarity of a schedule! Even if the people aren't great, I know where to go and what to do : )

Hi MC,

I am dying to find out..... Did he show up? More importantly, did you rise above the BS?

He made the meeting. I made a list of things I wanted to talk to him about. I kept to the list and did not bring up the issue that is concerning me. Just like the product of the screwed up home that I am - I judged his mood to be not a good one and opted not to discuss a contentious topic when he was in a foul mood.


Well you answered my question.
I see you,
