I hope you are having a great Sunday. My shoulder feels MUCH BETTER today. The tension in the muscles seems to be going away very slowly...and I'm moving it as much as I can, gently, to keep myself active. I don't want to become petrified like a tree.
Enjoy today's Scripture verse. The background graphic is from The Graphics Fairy and it was just too cute. It was actually an altered piece of sheet music...and I thought it went well with today's verse.
I'd read Ephesians 5:19 on one of you sweet lady's blogs...and lovely me, can't remember which one :( In any case, I wrote the reference down on a little 1" by 2" index card and took it to work. Since at least half of the people I work with are Christians, I figured someone might have a Bible on them. NO!!! It was so funny. I went from one co-worker to the next asking if he/she had a Bible..no, they all left them at home. It was really quite comical, because I really wanted to write out the entire verse.
Instead, I just placed the little reference card underneath the monitor screen, right in my line of vision...so it would remind me to be joyful unto the Lord!!!
Yesterday was a very tough day. My job basically entails telemarketing. We're a soft-sell company...and I can handle rejection. However, yesterday people were just plain very mean. Sweet Linda over at Prairie Flower Farm gave me some great advice....pray for them. That is exactly what I will do, because I don't know what's going on on the other end of the phone. I'll admit that when customers yell at me, it does make me cry sometimes because I'm just doing a job. There's no excuse for treating anyone mean...not at all. So Linda really made this heart of mine very glad yesterday :) :)
Oh, I came up with a title for my stories about work. It'll now be called "Tales from the Pear Tree" even though right now we're still in peach season. The Royal Riviera pears are what we are world-famous for here in the States and internationally.
Have a great week everyone. That's the news from Oregon today. Love and hugs, Heather :)
