"We enter into the Mystery of the Holy Trinity not so much by thinking and imagining, as by loving. Thought and imagination soon reach the limits beyond which they cannot pass, and these limits still fall infinitely short of the reality of God. But love, overstepping all bounds and flying beyond limitations with the wings of God's own Spirit, penetrates into the very depths of the mystery and apprehends Him Whom our intelligence is unable to see.
This should be an...interesting week at work. The situation with the girl at work who was treating me like a leper has gotten steadily worse, to the point now that everyone in my department has noticed it and want me to do something about it. On Friday I wanted to do something about it, but by the time it got really bad, my supervisor had already left for the day. I left work Friday with TMJ symptoms and cramps in my arms from the tension this is causing. I just want there to be harmony at work, or at least a lessening in the drama. This week we have bigwigs from corporate coming in to check us out, and we have lost several workers, including our unit manager. All this makes for a very uncertain, tense atmosphere. I'm starting to tense up just thinking about it, so I'll use the Scarlett O'Hara method and not think about it now.
At least the working out is helping with the tension. I am really enjoying that. Rachel and I worked out both Saturday and Sunday. She was cracking me up after I told her about the work goings-on, periodically saying things like, "See, working out is good for tension! You're not even thinking about work now, are you?" (Well, I wasn't 'til you said that!)
Well, I'm running late in my preparations for work, so I'd better get to it. Pray for me if you think of it. Oh, by the way, the Merton quote is there just because Merton made the CQOD! Plus, it's a continuation on a theme God's been ministering to me, so I thought others might benefit as well.
Hi, I'm Debi. Once in a while I have a thought and I like to write it down before it goes away. This is where I write it.
