June Seventh

castlemist

It’s almost over…. or is it… only if we pass… we busted our buttes today… of course helpful that we got extra hours and helpers… we’re still no where near perfect… but maybe we will look like we know what we are doing… I still have three more people coming in at 6am as I only have two closers tonight… and then he is coming at 9am… I go in at 8am… have to get my numbers first thing and walk the floor… then walk the floor with him and my boss… 54 questions… can only miss 5… I already know that a couple or three are definitely no’s as we couldn’t get to everything…

Son1 and girlfriend were here for dinner… we watched How I Met Your Mother from season one…

Son2 and son1 have gone for a walk and are working out on the weight system…. and drinking their power shakes…

Son3 went to the water park today and had a blast… he went on seven water slides… and around the lazy river on a tube… and drank sodas… and forgot to have lunch that was provided… of course shouldn’t the teachers have had the kids all meet for lunch to check in at least… he just got a bit of sunburn… he’ll probably crash early tonight… he’s in the shower now… tomorrow he is bringing books to read for Read and Feed day…

I am tired… I still need to clean out my work apron… and go over my list one more time of the questions for the audit… by noon the visit should be over and I can go to lunch… then do my regular work for the month and start the schedule and go home on time… I worked a bit late yesterday and today…

I’m not worried or stressed… kind of scary…

On this day, God wants you to know

... that true faith flowers from and through doubt. If you never questioned your beliefs, - you are just a puppet dancing to somebody's strings. If God had wanted your mindless obedience, you would've been created without mind and without free will. But you have both so you can come to God of your own accord. Just look at the lives of saints, - most of them had gone through a dark night of the soul, and that's why their faith was so strong. The path to true faith always goes through doubt. So ask those questions you've always been afraid to ask, and find the answers, and then your faith will become unshakable.

Happy Journaling…

I wish you much success on the visit. It certainly has been a learning experience for you. I know you'll be relieved to have it done and over. Hope your Wednesday is a wonderful one!

I'm glad that you will be able to let some of your stress go after today:)
