Best Laid Plans

I had big plans for today. Here is how I planned out my work day:

  • 9:00 – 10:30 AM: Go to a client and drop off a new computer. Configure the PC and do a couple of other quick chores.

    This week the blog is sponsored by Matthias Media. Does your evangelistic passion match the New Testament call to proclaim Christ’s name to all people? God calls on us to partner with him in “hastening the coming of the day of God” (2 Pet 3:12) by laboring to make people ready for that day, having…
