The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.
That’s my favorite scripture in the Bible. I’ll have to expand on it another time. The basic premise is that I acknowledge God is in control and I only have the illusion of control.
I just finished working out. I was unable to work out for almost five weeks due to my two daughters being sick. They took turns being sick and I wanted to support my wife as much as I could.
Hyeyoung was gracious to allow me to have my work out and a little time for me to reflect and write.
My church celebrates spiritual birthdays (the day we were baptized). My wife turns 12 today spiritually. I turned 12 last week (12/9). I had totally forgotten in the beautiful chaos called parenthood.
Typically on my spiritual birthdays I try to spend an extended amount of time (a couple of hours) reading the Bible, reflecting, and writing.
I have about fifteen minutes before I need to get home. I can’t focus right now, but I want to write.
I’m hungry. I’ve been eating earlier at 11:15am, because we are rotating staff in the IT office. I have one protein shake at 1pm. Now I am famished. This coffee shop, Tiamo, has baked goods and ice cream. A bunch of Korean ladies walked in and its gotten much louder.
I was hoping to provide some kind of deep insight in this blog post. I am so unfocused and I need to just get all these random thoughts out of my head.
I don’t think I will be getting any more work done or thoughts through.
I need to take up the offer of people at the Seoul International School community who have graciously offered to watch our kids for short periods of time. I don’t know exactly where to start.
I’m running on empty on brain juice.
God bless. I’ll have to write a better reflection post later.
PS. I was experimenting with Peter Hurley’s “squinching.” It’s supposed to make you look more confident. Due to my Asian eyes I don’t think it really works very well for me. I may just need some more practice.
