One of those days: looking to the future

A lady at work received a rude e-mail, and was very upset by it.
I saw a dead kitten, who had evidently been hit in the road, but made it to a yard to curl up in.
I saw a dead squirrel, who didn't make it off the road.
Cliff's truck got stolen.


It reminds me of Fiddler on the Roof, when all the Jews are being forced out of their homes and countries. A townsperson asks the Rabbi, "Wouldn't now be a good time for the Messiah to come?"

The miracle of Christmas is that the Messiah did come, but how I long for the day when He comes again. Most of the things I listed today are just little things, but they're small reminders that we do live in a fallen world, with much bigger sins and unjustices around us.

Now would be a good time for the Messiah to come.


  1. It has definately been one of those days. And, yes, Lydia, it would...

  2. Amen! When Daddy and I got home tonight, we sat on the couch for an hour and a half griping about our jobs and idiot things in general. sigh... I need a vacation!!

  3. Sounds like someone needs a cruise! =)

  4. Aw... I saw a poor kitty in the road, too. And he had a collar on! It made me sad... I even cried! (partly PMS)
