Lesson Learned

Ever have one of those moments when you just know God is trying to teach you a lesson?

I had set today aside to work on lessons for the week and finish up some midterm papers to add to my student teaching portfolio.  I probably should have been working on both of these things during the course of the entire weekend, but we had some family parties and I had been asked to help out at Saturday job fair, so I put it off.

I woke up today to find that my computer wouldn't start.  Now, my computer is old and tired, and has a long list of things it can't do anymore, but starting up was not one of them.  Okay, not good.  Panic.  I have a bunch of things on there I did not back up.  Luckily, a quick trip to Best Buy got my computer started, but it looks like my poor computer may not last much longer.

Then my family wanted to go out to breakfast before my brother went back to school, and really wanted me to come.  Nice guilt trip there.  Another hour gone.

Then I realized a few of the documents I needed were on my computer at school, and I had forgotten to email them to myself.  Time for a quick trip to school.

When I got home again, our Internet decided it was going to take a break.  Another delay.

I am finally done with the projects I wanted to complete, thank goodness.  But it was one of those days where I just wanted to scream at the sky, "Okay God!  I GET IT!"


  1. Yes, He does have a way of letting us know that our priorities are not His. Glad you got everything accomplished.

  2. Yikes! What a day! Sometimes God's plans are definitely different than ours!

  3. You got it all done. The timeline was just not what you planned. Celebrate!

  4. It is always a relief when projects that have been hanging get completed. Yay to you for your accomplishment.
