Last week

Five things that annoyed me last week (in no particular order):

  1. Meaningless international friendlies on wet Wednesday nights in February on awful pitches.
  2. The traffic on the Lisburn Road on Wednesday afternoon when I was already running late for an important appointment.
  3. A client who seems unable to work out that I am trying to work with and for him and not against him.
  4. Not being able to work out what was wrong with my internet connection one night (and then realising that the fault lie entirely with me).
  5. Playing well at five-a-sides on Tuesday night again and being on the losing team again.

Five things that have delighted me this week (in no particular order):

  1. City fans respecting the minute’s silence today for the victims of Munich (it deserved 3 points before the game even started).
  2. A lovely Sunday lunch with kind neighbours.
  3. Seven people coming to the second week of the Christianity Explored course I am leading at church (the day before the course started, we had one person confirmed).
  4. A doctor’s appointment that went well.
  5. K on too many occasions to list here.

All in all, thinking through the above, I have an awful lot to be thankful for. Please God help me to get less worked up about the small stuff this week and be more gracious in my dealings with everyone I encounter.
