Born Under a Bad Sign??
I'm not a believer in luck, being a Christian. But I did wonder today. And the title comes from a very cool old Albert King song. So far this month:
Handed over the worship to focus on planting a satelitte church...then all the doors slammed on that, so now we don't know where to go or what to do and I'm not leading worship just now.
Debbie chipped her front tooth and needed to get it refilled
The shower broke
Car failed it's MOT ( annual legal road test) and needed major, expensive, work done
Lost my keys
..and just so far today.
Settled down for a Boxing Day glass of red wine with my wife this afternoon. Didn't get to taste it as I knocked it all over my khaki trousers and our new rug. Grumpily I went upstairs to change, telling myself that this wasn't going to get me down and we'd start afresh with a positive outlook. On the the way back down the stairs my foot connected with a dog toy, I flew into the air, dropped most of the way downstairs before landing on my butt, smacking my wrists on the stairs. Then, I slid down on my side and arrived at the bottom........nothing broken but very sore. Two hours later I'm in the kitchen making enchiladas. I walk through to the living room and as I set them down, the hot dish starts to slide off the board I'm carrying it on. In a flash I grab the dish to stop it hitting the floor and remember it's been in the oven and contains molten cheese. Needless to say I burn my fingers as I capture dinner.
We're driving to Merseyside tomorrow and Southend on Thursday. We'll need all the prayers you got, can't afford anymore accidents or mishaps......
Had a great Christmas day though... :D
