I often express gloomy thoughts on this blog. It seems appropriate to share that I had a great weekend with the church youth, where we went to a ministry for the poor and homeless. We fed hungry people and helped organize their clothing ministry. I felt like I connected a little with the kids and we were able to show them that many people do not have the comforts they do. The kids were receptive and enthusiastic.
It is the work I chose to do.
Monday morning I was back in the office dealing with politics and bureaucratic minutia, but it didn’t spoil my good mood.
