…And then, Something Cool Happened


I had a flash of divine inspiration a couple of weeks ago. I know it was divine, because I’d been stumped by the project I was working on for more than six months. Then, suddenly, despite being over my head on this thing, I figured out what to do.

So, I started again. For the umpteenth time, I started again. But this time, I had the benefit of some video training courses and a whole lot of failed experiments to guide me. I had the Lord through prayer to guide me too. And so, when I sat down on Monday to try this one more time, something cool happened.

It worked.

On Wednesday, I sent the notice out that the project – more than six months in the making – was ready. A hammering migraine due to our 30-degree rise in temperatures kept me out of work Thursday. When I got back on Friday, I sat down and took on the second of those dual prongs which had, for so many months, vexed me.

Friday afternoon I sent out a second email message – that prong, too, was finished and ready for testing.

In one week, I finished two projects which had me on tenterhooks for most of this past year. One of them in a single day.

God is truly amazing, isn’t he? And that’s a good and comforting thing to me, because I have a huge, ugly, frightening project to face down very soon now. And I haven’t even had a chance to begin. Now I can, and to boot, I can already see how much of what I learned on this project (and because of it) will be applicable in that monstrous project.

Wish me luck. I’ll see you when I can. Hope you had as awesome a weekend as I did.

    Yeah, that didn’t seem like things went too well for the Rams.
