Calgon…

I mean, Lunesta, take me away…

Today, I need something to just get me through. I feel like an Alison Krauss song.

I’m about to eat my pizza from Papa John’s. I’m alone here in this house that no longer feels like home.

I haven’t slept since 12:45 AM.

I’m trying to hold back the feelings on my own and I just CAN’T!

I’m debating whether to take a Lunesta after I eat my pizza and just end my day… 😦

Rolling along

Things really seem to be coming together for the nationwide rollout plan. Just got back from a good meeting. There’s still a lot of work to do but the plan is becoming much clearer and the buy-in from everyone is becoming more unanimous.

I just went downstairs to get some breakfast for G and to get some water for myself and saw the video for Whatever You Like by Nicole Scherzinger.

Yoga can be soooo sexy!! 😉

Unceasing Prayer

Posted on 2007-09-13. Filed under: Prayers, Quotes |


The chapter I read today in Prayer was about Unceasing Prayer. Here are just a couple of quotes:

Besides, steady, faithful communion is in some ways easier than our normal way of praying. It is harder to pray inconsistently than consistently in the same way that it is harder to play a good game of tennis when we practice only once in a while. Do we really think we can experience integration of heart and mind and spirit with an erratic prayer life? Do we really believe we can, like Moses, “speak face to face” with God as someone would a friend by our unpredictable prayers. No, we develop intimacy by regular association. We develop ease as well. Why ease? Because we are forming fixed habits of righteousness. In time these “holy habits” will do their work of integration so that praying becomes the easy thing, the natural thing, the spontaneous thing — the hard thing will be to refrain from prayer.

I am sure you sense the desperate need for Unceasing Prayer in our day. We pant through an endless series of activities with scattered minds and noisy hearts. WE feel strained, hurried, breathless. Thoughts dart in and out of our minds with no rhyme or reason. Seldom can we focus on a single thing for long. Everything and anything interrupt our sense of concentration. We are a distracted people.

Unceasing Prayer has a way of speaking peace to the chaos. WE beign experiencing something of the cosmic patience of God. Our fractured and fragmented activities begin focusing around a new Center of Reference. We experience peace, stillness, serenity, firmness of life orientation.

AMEN!! The chapter goes on to discuss something called aspiratory (or breath) prayer. This is something I’ve done for a long time and didn’t even realize it had a name.

May God remind me throughout the day to speak with Him and may He hear me and know me when I talk with Him!

Sleepless in Durham

Posted on 2007-09-13. Filed under: Life |


I fell asleep right after telling G good night. At least this time I made it to bed first and remember going to sleep. It was about 10:15 or so and I woke up at 12:45. I made some coffee, worked out, watched some more UFC fights, read from the Prayer book, read from Joel, Psalms & Proverbs, closed some tickets for the business, tried to build a firewall that seems to be DOA, backed up B’s laptop, prayed numerous times throughout the night, did some server maintenance, folded two loads of laundry, tested some server backups, cleaned out my email, did some filing, read a magazine, updated my mileage, organized my office and it’s now 7:33 AM and I’m ready to get my day started.
