It's been an interesting week here in Durham. Things have been going slowly, so I can't say that I have an excuse for not posting a new blog for the last few days. I just haven't had anything going on that I find blog-worthy.

Sunday is arguably my favorite day of the week. Jon and I attend the 9 o'clock service at The Summit Church. This is the earliest service offered, but we like to go to church early, and then come directly home after the service so that we can enjoy lunch and a restful afternoon at home before we head back to church to serve at the 5 o'clock service. I work in the nursery and Jon is on the parking team. I don't think I could understate how much God used The Summit Church to change my life, and every time I go there I am reminded of all the good things in my life that are there because of my church. Our pastor has been preaching through the book of Acts, and this week he said something that really resounded in my mind. In light of the current economic situation in the US, he was urging us to take the opportunity to take the truth of God's faithfulness to provide, and share it with our friends and family and people in our communities. He said something to the effect that (and I'm not going to quote this b/c it could be a misquote) many people in the American culture worship money/financial security as their god. Unfortunately for many of them, their god has just been crucified, and there is no signs of resurrection. Yes, things may eventually improve, and there's a good chance that many of us will live to see times of economic prosperity, and probably even other times of economic recession, but we will never be in the exact same state of "security" or "insecurity". Things may seem bad right now, but seen through the lens of the pain that Christ suffered for us on the Cross, and living in the knowledge and faith that He is unwaveringly faithful and good every hour of every day definitely helps me to not fret about what my economic situation is going to be like when I wake up in the morning.

Monday I was feeling sick, so I didn't go to work. But I did manage to beat Mario Kart on the Wii (the 50 cc circuit).

Tuesday we woke up to around 5 inches of beautiful snow!!! Oh, and Jon started his new job. Hehehe. I went in to work for around 3 hours, then came home to relax and enjoy the beautiful white scenery.

Today was a pretty normal day at work. Things have been very slow, and I can't remember the last time I actually worked a full 8-hour day. (Which isn't the best thing when you're an hourly employee.) With the snow and ice outside I found it difficult to concentrate on things going on in the world of CEVA. I'm totally in the mindset that since everything shut down in RDU that surely the rest of the world has shut down as well. Unfortunately that's not exactly how it works, so somehow I manage to pull it together and get all my work done.

My kittens love to try and walk on the keyboard while I am typing. They're so cute. tyhjwsa (Zorro just typed that.)

Well, having finished watching the Tar Heels beat Clemson (not ClemPson), I need to go to bed!
