Thank you for your prayers

Yesterday I asked for your prayers. Please keep them coming. While I should have been doing my work this fall, I was only interested in the recall and barely went through the motions. If I don't work at double or triple time, I'll lose thousands of dollars in commission. But I've already done really well this year, so that's not the worst part. I'm worried that for one reason or another, my customers won't talk to me now, and will I run out of time to make the changes they want. I pray that as I call them tomorrow and next week, they'll answer the phones and say Yes I can talk to you now.

My job is sometimes great. I get to help people achieve their dreams and I have made lots of people lots of money. But my assignment is too big. I have 250 customers who spend about a million and a half dollars annually with my company and it's too much. I would gladly trade some income for less stress.

On to a happier subject. How cool it is to have a permanent link from a Rugby-Playing Pirate. I wonder if he knows that George W. Bush was a wing at Yale?

Update: Oops, I was wrong, he was a fullback.

Good Morning

Good Christian men rejoice
With heart and soul and voice!
Give ye heed to what we say
News! News!
Jesus Christ is born today!
Ox and ass before Him bow
And He is in the manger now
Christ is born today!
Christ is born today!

Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice
Now ye hear of endless bliss
Joy! Joy!
Jesus Christ was born for this
He hath ope'd the heav'nly door
And man is blessed evermore
Christ was born for this
Christ was born for this

Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice
Now ye need not fear the grave:
Peace! Peace!
Jesus Christ was born to save
Calls you one and calls you all
To gain His everlasting hall
Christ was born to save
