BACK TO IT


I have been flat out as I indicated I probably would be some time ago. What have I been busy with – not with the website I hear you say. Well it’s true I haven’t been – with the website I mean. My role as Maintenance Manager has kept me very busy and I expect to be so for quite some time (if not all the time). However, things are becoming a little more manageable at the moment and I hope to keep it that way for most of the time except when major problems occur at the retirement village where I work.

A lot of work has been required to catch up with things that should have been completed well before I took over the manager’s role, as well as new projects and things that are happening now. One little thing that’s been keeping me busy is compiling the Chemical Register for the village. This has turned out to be a bigger undertaking then originally thought because very little has been done to keep anything like it before and most of the MSDS sheets were outdated, missing, etc. Anyhow, I’ve just about got this under control, as well as instituting several changes in the way chemicals are stored, issued, etc. All this should make for a safer workplace.

As for me, well I’m a little down in the dumps – truth is, I have been for some time. Who can you blame but yourself for this predicament really? There is no real reason why a Christian should be depressed, at least theoretically! But when you consider your own sin, frailties, etc, it becomes obvious that there are plenty of reasons for being so in a fallen world. But that’s not to say that a Christian should be depressed.

I am down and it’s mostly my own fault. I acknowledge that, but it is difficult to lift the dark clouds once they descend and engulf you. Still, God is gracious and is more than able to deliver me from the darkness of my own sinfulness and thoughts. May the Lord look upon me in His mercy for I am an undeserving sinner!
