I’ve been working in Corporate America for all of 3 days now. Here are some thoughts.
1. It’s weird when a meeting starts and no one prays.
2. My ability to concentrate on what I’m reading is hindered by the very fact I understand so little of what I’m reading.
3. Around every corner I seem to spy someone who looks lonely or sad.
4. Last night we watched Jane Eyre. Mr. St. John asks Jane what she will do with all her fine accomplishments as she teaches the cottager’s daughters. Her reply? “I will keep them till they are needed.”
5. Just about everyone is ahead of me in the training curriculum.
6. I find that I like having a period of the day when I am busy but when that period is over, the bliss of home.
7. Every badge represents a soul.
8. I’ve shaved more in the last week than in the previous 3 weeks combined.
9. I’ve worn a tie twice this week and I still have no idea what it is for.
10. My kids are excited about the free suckers.
Nothing about bacon. You're slipping, Redmond. Slipping. Before you know it you won't be writing hit worship songs anymore… By the way – how are you balancing this new career and still leading worship at that church in Atlanta, AND living most of the time at your home in England?
#4–heck, yes!! Definitely one of my favorite lines from my fictional hero.
In response to no.1. This semester in school at the end of class before I have gathered my things I always seem to pause and I believe it's because I'm waiting on some one to dismiss us in prayer. It hasn't happened yet….
When I first started in Corporate America No work was done on Fridays. I mean nothing. The employees rolled thier chairs into the aisles and talked all day and did nothing. Drove me nuts. The company filed for bankruptcy a month after I stared. Go figure.
I pray at the begining of all my meetings. I pray the meeting is quick and not a total waste of time.
