January 20, 2009

I can’t believe that January is already half over, we’re well on our way to being into the year 2009.  Some people didn’t think that we would see it, or if we did that we would be flying around in little bubble cars or living on the moon.  It’s amazing sometimes how reality and the perception of reality differ.  I have two living great grandparents (both grandmothers), one is 96 and the other is 93…they’ve seen a lot and went through a lot over the past decade.  Today in America we swore in our first African American President.  Some people didn’t think they would ever see the day, but it’s here.  And though it’s happened we still have the people out there yelling and screaming about equality and how the fight for freedoms is not over and we still have to strive to reach equality for all.  What they don’t see though is that the whites are now the minority, and if we try to do anything about being treated unfairly in situations…they scream racism and it gets put down because it’s a white man fighting for his rights.  But its the same in other aspects of life as well.  I work in a pharmacy, where we deal with a lot of Medicare and Medicaid patients.  The system is abused by a lot of people, but then those that actually need the help and the insurance is unable to get it.  Our world is a crazy place.  Hopefully we survive the CHANGE that has been said to be coming with the new leadership in our Nation.  May God bless and keep America!

There is so much yet not that much stuff going on in my life right now.  I’m taking a day at a time and trying to figure out where and what I need to be doing.  I talked to a friend back the first of the month and the question he posed to me was ‘how do we live now as the Apostle Paul did’.  He went throughout the land teaching and preaching and reaching out to people all around…what is required or how can we live and live as he did.  What can we do so that we are doing everything’ we can be for God.  Do I fall short…most definitely!!  I know I’m not doing all I could or should be doing…but what steps do I take to get there?  Do I take on more responsibility, or will that just weigh me down from doing what I should be…and what exactly is the ‘should be’?  I’ve had to take stock of my life a lot over the past month and a-half…I do know that I want more and desire to be more, but now it’s just time to figure out the how.

Enough ramblings for today…I need to eat some supper and figure out what I’m doing with myself the rest of the evening.
