Good intentions, we all have them. We think about something and we even say we're going to do but somewhere along the way, we change our mind or we even get distracted. That is what happened to me last night. I'd mentioned in a comment to John B. Abela (@abelajohnb) that I'd try posting a blog on CB using Safari on my Mac. I said that I'd do it later that night. It is now 8:01 a.m. the next day and I did NOT do it until now.
The truth of the matter is, I got distracted. I fully intended to do what I said I'd do but... you know how it goes! Oh, come on! Don't shake your heads at me or look at me like that... We have all been there and done that. well maybe not Joyce Bethy Ferguson (@Bethy) or Kbird but a K most definitely has!
The truth of the matter is I let other things distract me. I got to chatting with Gail A Odongo (@Shani), I got busy reading early birthday wishes, I ate some of the fudge I gave myself as a birthday gift... Hey! I can give myself a present if I want to! Anyway, with all of these distractions, my promise to do something went completely out of my head until now. Okay, it is a little over eight hours late but I did it.
I can't help but think though, how often we do this to God. We have the best of intentions to do something but we allow distractions to get in the way. Then we get frustrated at ourselves, pretend we never said we'd do it, or tell ourselves we'll do it later. Perhaps we would do well to be honest with God and simply tell Him we are sorry, admit that we have messed up and ask Him to help us do better in the future.
Sigh... sorry John. I really did intend to do this blog last night but you see, Shani... sigh... okay, I let myself get distracted. Not that it was that urgent but still, I didn't do what I said I do. So, here it is... a blog straight from my Mac, written using Safari.
