Tuesday, December 7, 2010
Driving to work early this morning, I was blessed by this sun, nestled like an ember in cloud covers.
Coming home, this evening, I looked ahead and saw gray rain. Within the distance of five miles, I watched as my auto thermometer dove from 44 to 39 degrees. Something tells me there will be ice on the roads tomorrow, or at least settled into the ditches where our rain ran to seek a little warmth.

"If you got it out, put it away."
"Rinse the brushes carefully, or they will be ruined."
"Don't wear your best shirt if you know you are going to be painting."
and, the big one,
"How you behave during a project is directly proportional to how many of them you will do this year"
We just need someone or some circumstance to make us do it.
"I did, but you already got me in trouble for that."
"Ah, I didn't get you in trouble."
"Yes you did. You did last Friday."
"I didn't get you in trouble."
"Yes you did, remember?"
"You got yourself in trouble. I just scolded you for it."
"The policeman just doesn't understand that the speed limit should be higher for this section of the road."
"The electric company shouldn't be so concerned if I'm on time with my payments."
"I can't lose weight because the fast food chain only serves fat fries."
Most of our behavior problems aren't due to a lack of guidance but to a lack of personal responsibility.
Our project is "The Exodus Museum", and Moses was one of history's most harassed guidance counselors.
