Coming Soon [Sep. 2nd, 2005|10:13 am]
Daniel Arnold
So two days in a row I come home from "the" Elementary and run into the same traveling preacher on my way home. Is God trying to tell me something?

I spent forever in the classroom. It's time for quality not quantity totally. I was the Teacher Preparation Day for:

8 hours on Tuesday,

then in the elementary school from 9-7:45 on Wednesday,

then in the elementary school from 9-8:45 on Thursday.

One person called me and told me that he/she was bored.
Another person said that we have to go and party this weekend.
I am foregoing the Labor Day Weekend exhausting vacation...

too exhausting.

I am so happy to have a minute to myself this happy Friday morning though!
Praise the Lord and take of those in Houston Texas!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I come home and no one seems to want to talk to me because of my drained look on my face. I can't help it that I'm Bi-Polar and ADHD. Sometimes it feels like when I'm in this state, the best person to talk to is an honest, friendly drunk. There's one in every house of 28 every night. haha.

An honest, friendly drunk will tell you everything that has been on their mind and other people's minds. They will give you the honest truth without trying or being able to cloud it with deceit. It's helpful to be able to see outside myself.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
On a sidenote:

I've been trying to stop drinking completely, but I felt horrible last night and I was shocked to find that one beer was very therapeutic. I know I'm a light-weight, but hmmmm.... Do I have sort of dependency here if a beer eases my depression?

Ok, I'm so darn cool.
In my sleep, I had some interesting dream.
I had left food somehow in the closet space.
So I went through my roommate's stuff and frantically made a mess of things at like

3:00am.


Think he'll buy that story?

So the devils tried to directly demonically attack me last night as I went to sleep-- even with someone else in the room.

I find that interesting.

That doesn't usually happen.



Help me Lord to stand.

Those who you set free from bondage to sin are free indeed.

yesterday I let myself get too angry at seeing someone I know well take advantage of a drunken girl completely. My burning passionate anger totally distracted me from God. Help me Lord.

Today, I have been unproductive all day and it's 5:30pm. Help me seize the rest of the day Lord and start it over. Fill me with your Holy Spirit, make me more sensitive to the Spirit, HELP ME!

Amen.

I sit around while half the world starves for basic food,
and where the vast majority of the world starves for meaning found in love.


At my computer,
at the tv,
I waste away precious hours to reach out,
that are the Lord's,

He has hired me,
I am His representative,
His vessel of mercy,

and I sail to Pleasure Island,
with blood on my hands,
of those with whom I've been negligent.

Take pity on me Lord,
and grab the stern.
