“If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves. “ – Thomas A. Edison

tracy-la check in 7-10

Sometimes I feel like I'll never change these habits and look back on the years it has taken me to get here . . . this reading is appropriate for those days 

Reading for the Day

Expect miracles of change in people's lives -- including our own. Do not be held back by unbelief. People can be changed and we are often ready and waiting to be changed. Never believe that human nature cannot be changed. We see changed people every day.

Do you have the faith to make those changes possible? Modern miracles happen every day in the lives of people. All miracles are in the realm of personalities. Human nature can be changed and is always being changed. But we must have enough faith so that we can be channels for God's strength into our own life and the lives of others.

Prayer for the Day

I pray that I may have the faith to expect miracles. I pray that I may be used by God to help change my life and the lives of others.

1 Hour of putting together sales reports. Checking in becuse I've been promising myself I'd start for an hour and a half.

I struggle with this sort of work, I think it's because I've done the complex challenging database work, now it's just clicking and dragging, formatting numbers,etc. and getting things to look 'just right'... I want to move on to another fun challenge but this is the part of the job that means the most to the users..

Back in an hour :)
