Election official training
You remember what I wrote about how I worked at the primary election back in March? Back then, voters would come to me with those Authority to Vote Slips that tell me what ballots they would be voting, either Republican or Democrat, this precinct or that precinct? In the general election, I’m going to be looking up voters in the roster and writing those Authority to Vote slips.
I just found out this morning that the Vets Memorial Hall on West Broad Street in Columbus, OH has free parking. I will be taking my car down to my training class tomorrow morning.
How God zings me
I don’t know how to enjoy Jesus.
When I listened to a podcast from a few days ago from Joe Stowell, who writes a daily devotional titled Strength for the Journey, it struck me that I just don’t know how to enjoy the presence of Jesus who is right next to me. This sure takes the wind out of the sails of hoping for a place called “Heaven”, and expecting it to make me happy when I’m dead and gone. I think of the words of a classic hymn:
I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear
Falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses
I dunno. Maybe I’m just not the garden type. What is my favorite meeting place for meeting the Lord? Why a garden? Gardens are beautiful and peaceful, to be sure, but why a garden for me? For a tech-head like me, why not … Second Life? I’ve never been to Second Life because I cannot afford a newer computer. In the absence of Second Life, the blogosphere is my consolation. My thoughts on this important matter have not quite gelled. Maybe I should wait and write about them later when they have.
