First night on Nights

So in my glorious job at a manufacturing plant I have been granted the gift of working nights for 4 months. Last night was the first night.
So, in case you were wondering working nights means I go in at 6pm and leave anywhere between 7am and 9am.
Last night wasn't as bad as I thought it would be; it was a lot more relaxed than it on days and I had more time to get things done. I wasn't too tired either but I drank half a bottle of 5hour energy (which i would highly recommend the stuff really works-I just hope it isn't that bad for me).

For those in west Lafayette know that I was gone from the plant all last week and yesterday was my first day back and when I got there I was actually refreshed and a bit happy to be there. However, that feeling faded pretty quickly. As I read my emails and talked to people feelings of anxiety and tension started to rise up. At work I can humble admit I am probably not the best example of the Lord's servant by any means. I can be a little snippy and controlling and I could just feel those thoughts rising up. Lord please give me the strength and the ability to rejoice in my job and where you have me-even if it is at an un-Godly hour.

To dwell on better things though; I LOVED being in West Lafayette this past week. It was super hard to leave but I am thankful I was able to be there and hang out and be a part of the church more. I can't complain either that I got to hang out with Kurtmister quite a bit as well.

So, thank you Jesus for all your blessings even the ones I don't like very much right now.
